Outstanding Renaissance Chateau with exceptional interiors and views and a unique maritime history.
Located less than 20 kilometres from the Atlantic shores in the area of La Rochelle-Royan, the historic stone property comes with living space of almost 1,000m2, exceptional views, and sits in 34 hectares of land within the heart of a nature reserve that covers more than 100 hectares.
The Logis de la Massonne was the first of several generations of naval officers. Captains and lieutenants have lived in this beautiful house near the Arsenal of Rochefort sur Mer for more than a century. From the house the landscape is so untouched by any visual pollution that it is possible to observe the light from the lighthouses of Cordouan and Coubre and hear the roar of Pertuis de Maumusson during high tides.
Acquired in 1995 by the current owners, the house has been completely renovated by some of the finest artisans in France in order to restore the exceptional charm of this Chateau, including renaissance friezes and hidden paintings on wood panels which decorate the living room of the house dating back to the 16th century.
Boasting 930m2 of living space, a three bedroom annexe house, 1,200m2 of outbuildings and 34 hectares of land this property would make the perfect home for anyone looking to live in a natural environment where only the sound of nature breaks the silence.
Many protected species and plants flourish making this nature reserve one of the richest protected areas in the Aquitaine region and one of the most emblematic sites of Charente-Maritime.
