HISTORY OF THE DOMAIN

 

Originally, the Château de la Selve was a fortified house first on the frontier of the

Empire and then of the Kingdom of France.  It then became the hunting lodge of a

famous family from the Vivarais, the Dukes de Joyeuse, before being transformed,

century after century, into a farm.

Built during the 13th century, it has the typical architecture of all houses and castles

of the Bas-Vivarais.      Located on the bank of the Chassezac, the main Ardèche’stributary, it benefits from a unique and protected environment.

In 1990, this magnificent house became the property of my parents, Jean-Régis and

Magdeleine Chazallon.  The Château thus became familial, touristic and agricultural destination. 


Today, a wing of the castle has been converted into six Gîtes de France (from 3 to 6 persons). In a large yard planted with trees, they offer a heaven of peace in the

heart of the touristic Ardèche.

The young organic & biodynamic wines of this winery will be att Salon de la Revue du Vin de France, November 6-7, Auto Workd Park in Brussels. For information visit www.chateau-de-selve.fr.
