A unique opportunity to hold the key to nearly a thousand years of rich French heritage, this chateau has been owned and cherished by the same family since early 12th century.
First built in 1143, the chateau was re-built in 1740. Since that time it has never been modified and retains all its original features, contents and early 18th century elegant charm.
Currently the chateau enjoys 25 bedrooms, a suitably noble entrance hall, with a sweeping stone staircase and classic tiled floor. The Grand Salon is over 64 m2 with doors leading to a large terrace with commanding views over the rolling countryside.
There is also a private theatre, library and a spectacular dining/banqueting hall. This is a chateau where entertaining has considerable importance. The large kitchen is in the basement and there are extensive cellars with subterranean passages.
The new stable block is of the highest quality with 17 loose boxes, a newly refurbished groom's apartment, horse shower, tack room, office and large barn.
The chateau sits in 530 hectares of land, comprising 200 hectares of arable, with meadows, woodland and a lake. The estate offers over 37 km of private tracks.
As you can see, this is a very special property and will be sold with many of the contents, made specifically for the family, displaying the family crest. The tapestries were hand-created in Aubusson and are of world importance.
