You're going to love the wonderful renovation of this large residence, which has remained in its old incomparable style. You're going to have the impression that time has stood still and that you're living in the epoch.

A little history: this abbey truly dates from the early Middle Ages. It was certainly destroyed during the Wars of Religion. Most of the building was rebuilt at the end of the 16th century. The fireplaces from this epoch can still be seen. The residence was then transformed between the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century. You can have the opportunity to continue writing its history...

You can also purchase a small farm building that sits on 2000 m² of land.

You first enter into a large bright 46 m² dining room with a fireplace. The staircase leading to the first floor is in this room. To the right of the room is a magnificent 32 m² living room that gives onto a very spacious 29 m² kitchen.

The ground floor also has a bathroom and toilet, the boiler room and a spacious 110 m² garage.

The beautiful staircase in the dining room leads to the first floor, which is composed of 5 bedrooms: 2 x 31 m² , 24 m² & 2 x 12 m². There is a magnificent fireplace in four of the bedrooms, which recalls the unique style of the house. There are also 2 more bathrooms and toilets. The staircase continues to the attic and to another bedroom (25 m²).
