The property is in an exceptional setting. Its old buildings (18th century cellar and barn, 1820 mansion) and atypical forms a harmonious whole, unique in the region. In the past its land produced grapes - now replaced by forest - hence the origin of the Chai.

A completely renovated barn is also available with 10 beds. Other accommodations are available within a radius of less than 30 minutes.
