The immediate surroundings
The chateau is at the foot of a hill at the start of the vast plateau ‘Causse Comtal’ which offers long walks.
A very safe and discrete place with no direct view by neighbours. From spring to mid-autumn trees prevent any view of the chateau or park from outside.
There are pavilions at each end of the main building. The front of the chateau is south facing overlooking the park. A patio runs in front of the south facade and overlooks the park.
In the northeast angle stands a large square tower topped with a curious roof supported by a skilfully built wooden framework.
West of the main building there were a few more recent annexes and one can see the ruins of an old portal.
Typical of the Age of Enlightenment the chateau is of stone-built construction with walls 90 cm thick and double glazed windows ensure coolness in summer and heat conservation in winter.
The Enlightment windows give a very good light inside the ground and first floor rooms.
The roof is covered with stone slates typical of the area. The skylights in the roof are in the shape of triangular pediments.
The park :
Southwards in front of the chateau there is a marvellous park protected by a stonewall fencing the domain. It is planted with large, high trees and is a place where one may read, get a tan, play badminton, ping pong andothers.,
The swimming pool (7.5 X 15 m) is protected by a security fence. In the summer time one can get a tan sitting in a recliner.
Against the patio wall there is a permanent shelter with table and chairs enabling meals cooked on the large built-in brick barbecue to be taken close to the pool.
Eastwards is the wrought iron entrance gate with digital code- opening device and letterbox.
The courtyard between the chateau and the orchard under a vaulted wall is large enough to park quite a few cars.
At the northwest end there is a two storeys, 12th century, dovecote.
Inside and northwards at the rear of the chateau there is an orchard with walnut, apple, pear, cherry, plum, fig and quince trees.
