A 17th century, traditional, local house
in the heart of the Graves wine region


25 km to the south of Bordeaux, St Jean train station and the airport.
In a small town with approx. 2,000 inhabitants which is part of the French “Communauté-des-communes-de-Montesquieu” (Montesquieu district planning authority), on the banks of the Garonne.
This site, overflowing with history since the Roman era is also a vine-growing region where numerous chateaux produce prestigious wines with the Graves appellation.
This traditional, local house can be accessed from a square with a church dating from the 12th century.
Shops and schools are nearby as is an old port.


A driveway bordered by poplar trees leads to the property located in 2 ha of parklands, predominantly composed of woods as well as a small island surrounded by a fish pool.
The tall stone walls that surround a large part of the property were recently restored.
A caretaker’s cottage is located at the entrance to the property on the right-hand side, facing the traditional, local house which looks out over parklands and a swimming pool. At the end of the grounds is an orangery with a well.
The estate is planted with some beautiful trees.

The house

A superb, one-storey building typical of the Bordeaux area, flanked by its two-storey pavilions, this traditional, local house is built on the foundations of an old 17th century building, the residence having been partly rebuilt around 1850. The facade is covered with Virginia creeper and climbing roses in the clement season. It spans approx. 650 m² of living space. Adjoining reception rooms are to be found in the central, one-storey section. The house comprises two lounges, a dining room, a kitchen and a veranda, six bedrooms and four bathrooms as well as attic space. It can be accessed via three entrances. The main entrance, in the middle of the facade with its extremely beautiful door featuring a fanlight and wrought ironwork, dates from the first quarter of the 17th century.
A corridor, with period black and white floor tiles, leads left and right to the lounges. These vast rooms have large windows overlooking the garden, floor boards and old fireplaces. The room housing the gas-fired boiler is at the end of the corridor. A former bedroom on the right-hand side awaits renovation. A stairway leads to the vast attic which could be converted into bedrooms. On the left-hand side of the facade, another tiled entrance hall leads to a bedroom-study. At the end, the corridor leads to a large, renovated kitchen with an old fireplace as well as direct access to the parklands and a bathroom.
A stairway leads up to a half-floor comprising a large bedroom and a bathroom, and then up to the first floor comprising two bedrooms and a bathroom.
On the right-hand side of the ground floor are the lounge and then a dining room opening on to a veranda which overlooks the west facade of the house where there is a large pleasure garden. The third entrance in the 17th century section has a stone, period stairway with pillars. On the ground floor is a large bedroom, whilst upstairs are a bedroom and a bathroom as well as a small fitted kitchen area. The roof was redone in 2000.

The outbuildings

The caretaker’s cottage with its Virginia creeper covered facade has approx. 160 m² of living space over two levels that includes a lounge, a large kitchen and a bedroom overlooking a small garden with a well. This house is currently rented for €562 per month to a couple responsible for the upkeep of the property. It is followed by three wine storehouses, all with upstairs, spanning approx. 20 m², and a 20 m² garage.
An orangery, invaded by roses, at the bottom of the garden stands facing the traditional, local house. Behind is another well. Facing the orangery, are two wine storehouses, respectively spanning 25 and 20 m², with a vaulted cellar as well as arcades. There are a total of almost 300 m² of outbuildings available.

The parklands

Stone walls delimit the property, bordered on one side by a private road.
Parklands spread out on the right-hand side and behind the house. A first meadow is bordered by trees behind the house, further away is a large meadow with a wood along one edge. And lastly, a fish pool surrounding a small island exudes an atmosphere of the Poitevin marshland.
The garden is in pristine condition. Immaculately kept all year round, it features a huge variety of flowers and shrubs as well as superb species such as elm, horse chestnut, maple and lime trees as well as American oak and umbrella pine trees. At the very end, behind a hedge, hides the orangery which has been restored.
There is an old wooden henhouse in a corner of the garden.

Our opinion

Hidden amongst vines and Virginia creeper, this traditional, local house still has all of its age-old grace, despite being in a good state of repair. It would be possible to create further bedrooms within the existing building which already has a large number. Nestling near to the banks of the Gironde in a wonderful, calm and restful setting, the superb parklands are immaculately kept and the property’s village location is a great asset for everyday living.
