Ideal location close to international private schools, famous golf courses and ski resorts. Peace and quiet guaranteed. The panoramic view over Lake Geneva and the Alps can be admired from all floors of this castle. A full renovation was performed under close supervision from the Historical Monuments department of the Canton of Vaud to ensure that the castle’s character was respected while giving it a touch of contemporary architecture. The castle is indeed listed as a historical monument. The foundations date back to 1441 and part of the castle was rebuilt from around 1544 to 1551. Another wing was converted in the early 19th century. A full refurbishment was performed from 2003 to 2006. This extremely rare property enjoys luxury fixtures. Spread across 4 levels, the castle offers a total living area of over 2,000 m2. Reception areas are on two floors and include a ballroom, banquet hall for 90 seated guests, several theme parlours, a billiard room, a summer kitchen and a smoking room. Five generous suites with bathroom and dressing room make up the lord of the manor’s private quarters. A splendid open space with apparent beams occupies the attic, equipped with a satellite dish to pick up international channels. A large terrace facing Lake Geneva and a French garden of close to 10,000 m2 grace this very exclusive home. The castle’s original character has been preserved by numerous period features – fireplaces, wood panelling, gold leaf mouldings and antique parquet floors. The whole property is in pristine condition.
