15 Bedrooms; 2 Apartments; Beautiful Views; Well maintained; Excellent Business Potential
A well maintained renaissance Chateau, dating to the 1500’s, with established wooded parkland, a stunning pastoral setting and multiple ancillary buildings, offering excellent business opportunities and easy motorway and transport access.
Until recently, this fairytale chateau was used as a family home, and a vast farming estate is still actively run from the property. The large number of independent and well maintained ancillary buildings could also make it a great opportunity for several members of a family wishing to buy together. However, the property also offers tremendousbusiness potential for hosting events, wedding receptions or hotellery.
The estate comprises six distinctive buildings: the 16C Chateau, with its twelve bedrooms and two independent apartments, offering an additional three bedrooms; the former stables, a forge, a large carpentry workshop, an office situated in the wine producing barn, and the Orangery. The six buildings sit privately within seven hectares of parkland and woods, entirely fenced off, and offering fantastic walks along it’s 2 km of private footpaths, where depending on the season, one can collect mushrooms, chestnuts, hazelnuts, pick flowers or observe all kinds of wildlife.
The Chateau’s Coat of Arms, as seen above the main entrance, belongs to the Counts of Foix-Candale, whose descendent Jacques de Candale, built the property in 1566. Said to have hosted Henri IV, King of France and Navarre in the late 1500’s, the chateau offers an impressive array of period features including a stunning carved stone staircase, four towers, one of which turreted, light and elegantly proportioned rooms with period parquet floors; period carved stone fireplaces; and a private chapel with hand painted murals and vaulted ceiling.
Of particular note, the Chateau has been lovingly looked after by the family, and as such key renovations have been implemented including a fully restored roof in the early 2000’s, a full termite treatment, double glazed windows, a fully equipped oil central heating system with ornate cast iron radiators, excellent insulation, exterior work including a lighting system around the perimeter of the Chateau, restoration to stone work, as well as all the original cast iron gates and fences, and recent electricity, plumbing, sanitary and heating work.
