    About this property

    • Walk through the gates of this one-off chateau and a delicious shiver runs up your spine. Romance and history are combined in a unique and unforgettable package.The focus has to be the 30m high keep, dating back in parts to the 11th century.  During the 100 years war the chateau (once under the command of Alienor of Aquitaine) passed many a time between French and English control. When danger presented itself, the locals would run to the tower, shin up a ladder and pull it inside to keep themselves safe.These days a quieter atmosphere reigns. The chateau chapel has been converted into a stylish 3 bedroom home with original features preserved. Outside the grounds of over ½ an acre offer many spots to sit and reflect on all that must have happened within these walls.The property is sold furnished by its interior designer owner who has matched old and new with style.This would make a magical setting for summer events or an impressive home with complete privacy in a stunning village setting.And the jewel in the crown? The new owner will become the Chatelain or Chatelaine of the village - a title which is awarded with the chateau.Price including agency fees: 895.000 €Price excluding agency fees: 844.340 €Buyer commission included: 6% TTC
