Property Description

Built in 1437 this fairy tale castle has a moat  Set in 27 Acres of grounds it was originally the home of Louis XI (Louis the Prudent) and a long line of French Dukes. Rarely does such an exemplary property become available with its wealth of history, There is so much to tell about this amazing property... a stunning home, of course, or equally... a fantastic business opportunity.

Tastefully renovated 450m2 fortified Norman castle with 13 rooms including 7 bedrooms in a beautiful and tranquil setting.  Fabulous reception rooms with lovely original elements (fireplaces, original floor tiles, exposed beams, stone spiral staircase, the moat...) and includes several outbuildings (apartment, garage, workshop, barns), pond, grounds of around 11 hectares including meadows and woodland. Set in beautiful and peaceful countryside but within easy reach of shops.

The castle offers impressive accommodation, set over 3 floors with stone staircases (any guesses as to why the staircases taper and become narrower toward the top floor?) ? An impressive Entrance hall that still has an 18th Century copper pot used for boiling the water (with a fire under the pot and a water pump across the room!) ? Luxury bedrooms one which still has a door to reveal the old 'money room'. Numerous bathrooms each with their own character and a fabulous drawing room,

 The property also benefits from some modern features including oil central heating, and double glazing.

There are numerous outbuildings one of which has an independent apartment.
There is 800m of river with fishing rights, paddocks, pond, a barn and garage.

It may hardly need to be said... that aside from being a fantastic and spacious family home this property lends itself handsomely to use as a superb leisure business base - most obviously as a luxury Chambres d'Hotes and celebration or conference venue. But possible uses are as wide as your imagination.
