Looking around Sotheby's Real Estate website I came across this magnificent 16th century Château in Tourves, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur, France. There's quite a lot of information about this property but I will summarize it for you. You're welcome, precious.
It has over 250 acres of vines, olive-groves, meadows, forests and river banks (Argens river). The Bastide offers 800 square meters and was renovated in strict observance of antique materials and techniques (stone-cutting, lime coatings, XVIIIth century woodwork, vaulted rooms, tiles, wrought iron). The Château's façade and theatrical stairs and fountain were created in 1784 ; the cedar and chestnut trees avenue was planted in 1848. Older still, a 16th century stone arch-door, a vaulted sheepfold and several tiled water and wine cisterns are to be seen.
The Bastide comprises : 1000 square meters of agricultural buildings (farm, barn, sheepfold, bread oven) 9 rooms on the first and second floors. 2 old-style bathrooms, 3 shower rooms. 70 square-meter vaulted kitchen with castle stove and monumental fireplace. 90 square-meter vaulted lounge + chapel with roman apse and monumental fireplace.
