Elegant in scale, architecturally exquisite and with beautiful views of surrounding vineyards, this magnificent château affords a sophisticated lifestyle in Beaujolais, one of France’s prettiest wine regions.
Between the villages of Saint-Amour and Fleurie in the hilly Beaujolais countryside and on the border of Burgundy, the prestigious 17th-century château mansion sits majestically in the middle of the region’s renowned vineyards.
Built in 1690, the château is a unique heritage property, steeped in history and the elegance of a bygone era. It has been occupied by several noble families, and it was also a postal relay station where Napoleon stopped for two days in 1811.
The château and vineyard estate exudes elegance and grandeur, reflecting the generous sense of space and sophistication. The property consists of a luxury château residence, wine-producing vineyards, a four bedroom guesthouse and a chapel. The gorgeou swimming pool is set in a tranquil spot in the midst of the grapevines.
The main building has eleven bedrooms, and there are numerous reception areas such as sitting rooms, boudoirs, libraries, billiard rooms, dining rooms and a home cinema, which are all tastefully decorated and each having its own charm.
An interior courtyard
There are four beautiful fireplaces in the main house and one in the guest house. The exceptional kitchen, equipped with professional appliances, can cater for over 30 guests.
There are also wine cellars and a summer kitchen in an interior courtyard boasting a town fountain and a La Cornue barbecue.
With a blend of fine architectural details and superb furnishings, this home is picture-perfect and is ready for immediate occupation; it is lavishly furnished, outfitted and decorated. Every detail has been taken care of, even a set of house linens and a complete “La Pléiade” collection in the libraries.
The mid-19th century St Suplice-style chapel is still consecrated and has been entirely renovated with its wonderful stained glass windows. A small cloister leads to a building providing a relaxation area with sauna and massage room as well as three more bedrooms.
The estate’s singular setting commands almost two hectares of grapevines surrounding the château. Its A.O.C. Moulin à Vent red wine, a single Gamay variety, is officially accredited as the ‘Vin de Bourgogne’ naming.
This home is impressive and is a quintessential trophy property for a celebrity, jet-setter, entrepreneur, wine enthusiast or savvy investor. Offered at €4.7 million, it is a solid investment with unlimited lifestyle potential and real estate value.
