Originally built by the Templars, it is known locally as 'Le Vieux Chateau' and has a record of owners going back as far as the 16th century. This easy to maintain 4 bedroom village fortress (2 bedrooms, plus 2 bedrooms in a guest wing) with a pleasant view across its courtyard facing outwards towards the wooded hill across the river Loue, is ideal for those who want a great piece of history but remain free from the harness of maintaining a large garden or park. The property's eight rooms, some very large and luminous, are restored sensitively to their history yet combined with modern comforts, double glazing and en-suite bathrooms. There are also two well equipped kitchens, the smaller located in the west wing with its 2 bedrooms and bathroom and its own outside entrance that can become immediately a self contained gite. Half of the medieval East wing accessed by an interior door has yet to be restored internally, leaving a great project for the next owners. The whole property has a new roof throughout. There are two much smaller village buildings attached to the extremities of its walls on the village lane side but the sheer scale and dressed stonework of this ancient property gives it a very detached appearance.
