This estate combines many of the sought after elements of a property in this region with an impressive principal house, beautiful formal gardens, parkland, vines, olive trees and woodland in a very private setting.

The property was extensively and imaginatively remodelled in 1993 with Bruno Lafourcade’s renowned architectural and design expertise. The spacious and well laid out accommodation is arranged over 3 floors and comprises the main reception rooms and a kitchen/family dining room which all face south overlooking the formal gardens.

The restoration has maintained many of the original features to blend with the requirements of modern living using, where possible, locally sourced materials and craftsmen. Enjoyed as a family property it equally lends itself to formal entertaining.
