The swimming pool 12 x 5 (salt) is positioned within the ancient walls of the chai, making it a perfect sun trap.

The estate of just over ten acres of land has many trees and mature bushes and shrubs as well as excellent views of the surrounding countryside.

Properties such as this one are very rare and sought after, not only because of their character, but also because of their proximity to the lively city of Bordeaux, which is of great historical and cultural interest and is an ambassador for the art of living in the South West of France. It also benefits from the proximity of an international airport serving all the European and Mediterranean capitals.
