Luxe Living: FRENCH CHATEAU

Owned by the Knights Templar in the Middle Ages, this historic 18th-19th century neo classical chateau is situated 40 minutes from Bordeaux. The property can trace its historical roots back to the first century AD when a Gallo-Roman villa first occupied the hill top site. The 10-bedroom estate is nestled amongst the rolling hills of the French countryside. The property is approached by a long, tree-lined drive and is framed on either side by sprawling vineyards. With gorgeous views and equipped with commercial wine making machinery, this is an enophile's dream home. It has been a wine estate since before the French Revolution and also includes an estate manager's house. With so much romance, elegance and beauty... I think I'm in love!

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
