We have long been a fan of the legendary “Château de Chambert,” an historic wine of the chateau, a 100% Malbec blend of estate old vines. This wine is aged 12 months in 3,000 litres oak casks to achieve a perfect balance of fruit, silky tannins and a delicate spice of French oak. It is a wine that can easily age from 15-20 years depending on the vintage.
With beamed ceilings & tile floors throughout, there is a nice, modern kitchen, dining area & lounge with a fireplace, as well as a bedroom, a WC and bath
Upstairs in the attic have found a large room of 54 m2 that can be divided into bedrooms. There also a cellar of 20 m2.

Buying property in France after Brexit
Even though the UK has now officially left the EU, as a UK citizen, you’ll still have the right to buy property in France as a non-EU citizen. You can even rent it out if you want to.
However, you will now need to make sure you have a long-stay visa if you plan to stay in France for more than 90 days at a time. Check out our page of links & facebook pages & groups for a lot of information on residency, visas & the general legalities of residing in France.
Can I buy property in France and get residency?
Unlike some other countries, France doesn’t have a ‘Golden Visa’ or other investment scheme for property purchases. This means that for UK citizens post-Brexit, although there aren’t restrictions on foreigners buying property, you’ll now need to go through the same process as any other non-EU citizen to get a visa to live in France – and then to apply for permanent residency if you’re eligible.
