The Manor house was built in 1810 by a well known noble family on the foundations of an old building. From the entrance gate the property breathes a spirit of grandeur and well-being. The interior of the Chateau keeps its promises also. The restoration works have been carried out with great care to preserve the authenticity and charm of the property.
