French chateau to buy – Beaujolais vineyard estate for sale
A luxury French chateau estate with vineyard in Beaujolais
Between the villages of Saint-Amour and Fleurie in the hilly Beaujolais countryside and on the border of the Bourgogne, this magnificent 17th-century chateau mansion sits in the middle of the region's renowned vineyards.
Built in 1690, the French château and vineyard has been occupied by several noble families, and consists of a magnificent chateau residence, wine-producing vineyards, a 4-bedroom guest house and a chapel.
The luxury French chateau combines the charm of an old mansion with the comforts of modern living. The buildings have been stunningly renovated and are sold ‘ready to live in’; completely furnished, outfitted and decorated. Every detail has been taken care of, even all house linens and a complete “La Pléiade” collection in the libraries.
The vineyard for sale occupies almost two hectares of grapevines around the château. Its A.O.C. Moulin à Vent red wine, a single Gamay variety, is officially accredited as the “Vin de Bourgogne” naming.
The main building has eleven bedrooms, and there are numerous reception areas, which include sitting rooms, boudoirs, libraries, billiard rooms, dining rooms and a movie theatre, which are all tastefully decorated and each having its own charm. There are four beautiful fireplaces in the main house and one in the guest house.
The impressive kitchen, equipped with professional appliances, can cater for over thirty guests. There are also wine cellars and a summer kitchen in an interior courtyard boasting a town fountain and a La Cornue barbecue.
The mid-19th century St Suplice style chapel is still consecrated and has been entirely renovated with its magnificent stained glass windows. A small cloister leads to a building offering a relaxation area with sauna and massage room as well as three more bedrooms.
The luxury French chateau benefits from having a beautiful swimming pool in the midst of the grapevines.
While there is a private jet airport nearby, both Lyon International Airport, Geneva Internatinal Airport and Paris De Gaulle International Airport are easily accessible.
