Welcome to our beautiful home in the heart of the Beaujolais. This beautiful small chateau has 7 bedrooms a large kitchen-dining room, dining room, sitting room, and billiards (6') room. The main rooms are all South facing with large windows on the first floor and French doors on the ground floor.
Until recently it was our home so you will find it very well equipped: from the Aga in the kitchen to the high speed fibreoptic internet; Jotul and Clearview woodburning stoves; dual purpose Viessmann solar panels that heat the hotwater in the house and the swimming pool down to details like French Scrabble and a well stocked herb and spice drawer! The private garden and 11m heated salt-water pool give you panoramic views over vineyards and rolling hills, 150km to Mont Blanc and the Alps on a clear day in the East and the Monts du Tarare in the West.
Moiré is a small village in the South of the Beaujolais, in an area known as Les Pierres d'Orées, a warm honey coloured limestone with which most of the buildings in the area are built. 35 km from Lyon, it is an ideal base from which to explore as well as being an idyllic spot in which to relax. Villefranche-sur-Saône (access A6) with its fabulous covered food market is 14 km North.
The neighbouring villages include Bagnols with its world renowned château hotel and Oingt, a medieval hill-top village recently classified as one of France's most beautiful villages. The local market town, Le Bois d'Oingt (3 km) has shops, doctor, vet, bank, post office and a market every Tuesday morning.
