A MAGICAL MOMENT
IN AN EXTRAORDINARY PLACE

CHÂTEAU DE SALES IS LISTED AS A HISTORICAL MONUMENT.
COME AND DISCOVER AN EXCEPTIONAL HERITAGE AND A UNIQUE FAMILY HISTORY.

What started out as a simple fortified house in the 15th century was transformed into a country house in the middle of the 17th century. Harmonious beauty emanates from the courtyard’s façades, adorned by an imperial dome. Gargoyles, weather vanes, glyphs and egg-and-dart moldings are distinctive features of noble houses and typical of the mannerist style of the time.

After the construction of the country house, a park was developed over the course of the 18th century to include woods, an English garden, an orchard, a vegetable garden and a reflecting pool that mirrors the façade at Neptune’s feet.

During your guided tour, our guide will take you on a journey through the five centuries of Château de Sales. Discover the estate’s winery and barrel hall and finish your visit with a guided tasting of our two wines, Château de Sales and Château Chantalouette.
