Brix chateau / country house description

This beautiful chateau is situated in a green valley within walking distance of an ancient village. A long drive takes you up to the charming, fully restored manor house that can sleep up to 30 guests. The chateau sits amongst beautiful gardens with plenty of garden furniture and a purpose built BBQ area. The tranquil setting of the chateau includes a small stream running through the grounds, two fishing ponds and a wood to explore.

The property is ideally suited to large groups for special occasions. Breakfast is optional by reservation and can be served outside on the patio, surrounded by flowers, or inside by candlelight in the medieval dining room. Please note that full property descriptions, photographs, availability & prices are kept up to date on my website which you can visit by clicking on my personal website link below.

The chateau has been converted in to several self-catering apartments and extra bedrooms all within the main building. This makes it ideal for a number of families holidaying together who wish to maintain a level of privacy. All the rooms have central heating apart from the top floor apartment, which has one room with electric heating.

On the ground floor the medieval dining room with huge fireplace and many candles can seat 30. The salon bedroom is a lovely well-proportioned double room with luxury en-suite bathroom. The sunny garden room that adjoins has 2 single beds, a small double and private access to the garden.

Outside the manor house is set within 5 hectares of gardens including a small wood. There are enclosed gardens for the children to play in including playgrounds, slide, swings, cabin and games such as badminton, cricket, boules, table tennis etc. They can also feed the donkeys and horses in the paddocks. Secure parking is available and the chateau sits 500 metres from the road (a small road) so there is no traffic noise. There is plenty of good quality garden furniture and a number of picnic tables.
