The chateau’s white stones peep through from behind the park and contrast with the glass of the greenhouse on the edge of the garden, a few paces away from the terrace. The eye lingers over the very classical lines of the chateau and the balanced composition of its setting between two clumps of vines. It was refurbished by Mark Kirwan at the end of the 18th century.
The arched windows above the central glass doors and its dormer windows soften the sharp slate roof slope and the uprightness of the high white shutters.
The open pattern of the railing on the steps echoes these alternating curves and straight lines.
