Classical 18th Century chateau near Bordeaux
Seven hectares of mature park and gardens, large pool, stables

Property Details

The great architect Louis, who also designed and built most of Bordeaux at the time, rebuilt the château in 1790 and it was for a while, the home of Napoleon Bonapart’s composer and 1st violinist, Rode. Louis also designed the beautiful Grand Théatre in Bordeaux and the famous staircase at the Opéra de Paris. There are many similarities between this property and Château Margaux, another of Louis country houses, notably about the entrance and the cornices.
