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 off as a simple fortified house in the 15th century was transformed into a country house at the beginning of the 17th century and has hardly been altered since. 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, the current park was developed over the course of the 18th century to include woods, an English garden, an orchard and a vegetable garden. The reflecting pool was built in 1770 so that the façade would be reflected at Neptune’s feet.

During your guided tour, our wine tourism manager, Marjorie Voriot, will take you on a journey through the five centuries of Château de Sales. With her you will 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.

You can also book a private tour during which we offer you a bespoke visit that can be geared towards the theme of your choice: history and family, architecture or the art of winemaking.

Visits by appointment:

Visitors will be welcomed in our shop area, at the entrance of the Château. The room’s timber frame, in the shape of an upside down ship’s hull, dates back to 1820.
