This rare 19th century winemaking property at the heart of a popular canalside village comprises a grand ‘maison de maître’, a ‘maison de famille’, a ‘cave’, an ’annexe des vendangeurs’ and a stable all set in its own walled garden, partly wooded and ideal for a swimming pool.

Built in 1826 according to tradition, the three-storey ‘maison de maître’ dominates the property: square building with large windows, grand (2,5m wide) hallways, a central stone staircase, spacious rooms with marble fireplaces and high ceilings. Recently used as a retreat place to hold yoga/danse seminars – the house was slightly adapted to host retreat guests whilst keeping a private, separate apartment for the hosts at the top of the house.

On the ground floor of the main house we find the kitchen, the dining room, the living room and the office which could be used as a bedroom or second living room. On the first floor, there are 4 good size, well proportioned bedrooms, one of which has a shower area. There is also a WC and shower room on that floor. The next floor is the attic where we find the private two-bedroom apartment with a wide open living space.

The newly renovated, of approx. 50m2, teaching seminar room with its wood flooring and charming exposed stone wall, is attached, at the back of the house. It has its own entrance with a cloakroom and storage area.

There is more. Below the house, with its own entrance off the main street, there is a large ‘cave’ recently used as a micro-brewery (and with a current licence)

In the wide open garden we find three other buildings: the ready to live-in 4-bedroom ‘maison de famille’, a two-storey ‘écurie’ and ‘annexe des vendangeurs’ with ‘lavoir’ outside. The last two can easily be converted into separate homes and make a total of three fine ‘gîtes’ to rent out during the holiday season.

This former wine estate in the middle of a canal village is a rare opportunity and full of potential in generating future income.
