In The Heart Of The Regional Park Of The Monts D’Ardeche
This stronghold is located in a beautiful village near Largentière and Aubenas, 1 hour from Montélimar.
With two towers dating from the 14th and 15th century, built around a superb central stone spiral staircase leading to three levels and an attic.
The central part was built in 1567 with the addition of watchtowers, loopholes and machicolations on the towers by the Seigneur de la Motte de Chalendar then syndic of the Vivarais, hiring several soldiers to defend the house and his family against looters.
At the end of the 18th century, the living room and the Florentine suite were redesigned according to Tuscan inspiration with an Italian terrace and French ceilings.
The house develops around 600 sqm with a cellar, attics, an independent tower, a garage, small outbuildings under the moat with a well fed by a spring.
The exteriors of approximately one hectare include five different gardens, two plots of vines, a swimming pool.
This rather austere defense castle for its northern facade has a completely different easterly exposure with terraces and large openings overlooking the Florentine garden with arcades supporting the terrace and giving the whole a beautiful Tuscan villa look. This chateau remained in the same family, passed on by the ladies in 2004, when the current owners undertook the complete restoration.
