    Built during the 1870s this chateau is ideal for hosting banquets, parties or for family living. Rooms are of good size with 3m+ high ceilings.
    Set in its own terraced landscape on the edge of a medieval town, close to many attractions, including Puy du Fou, Futuroscope, Marais Poitevin et Venise Verte.

    Entrance is through the tower, which leads into the large hall. To the left is a stunning lounge with central fireplace which would be perfect for banquets, with a door onto the terrace. There is a beautiful study, with original wood features from when the house was originally built. There is also a bathroom on this level and separate WC and under stairs room. Traditional kitchen/diner with door to garden.

    A grand wooden staircase leads up to the first floor where there are 4 main bedrooms, 1 with an integrated rounded room within the tower, another with shower room, a separate large family bathroom and separate WC. On the 2nd floor there are a further 5 rooms, 4 of which are set up as double bedrooms and 1 with plumbing for a shower room.

    There are 380 m2 of convertible outbuildings. The roofs were completely overhauled in 2021. The main outbuilding is a barn with a stunning internal apex - could be used for weddings with some tidying up. There is a garage/workshop with potential for conversion into separate accommodation. Under the main house is a fantastic vaulted cellar which could be made into a very special event space.

    The land is terraced and previously used for vines. Peacocks were kept by the family in the large aviary. A beautiful stone staircase leads down to the lower grounds, a hidden terrace with bread oven and ideal BBQ area. Potential as an elegant family home, with low maintenance gardens, which would also benefit anybody looking for a secondary home.
