A fine example of a 15th Century Château with its elaborate architectural detailing still in tact, including ramparts and battlements, it stands proudly over its estate of 495 acres, in which is included a whole spectrum of other buildings, suitable for a variety of uses. They include 4 cottages, stables, barns and further separate farm.
Inside, its historic character is apparent throughout, from rooms with beamed and vaulted ceilings to spaces, which feature panelling and ornate fireplaces.

HISTORY
The chateau was built in 1450 by the Lesbolières family, then bought in 1518 by Jean Beaupoil de St. Aulaire, who finishes the work and extends it. In 1774 the Ardant family, who were wealthy merchants from Limoges, acquire the Château. It changes hands several times until in 1870 it becomes the property of Baron Rolland de Blomac, who fully restores the Château and its park.

This impressive and extremely pretty Château comprises: of a rectangular original building with four corner towers to the west, an intermediate building links it to the chapel.The most interesting part is the original building of the fifteenth century.

Still remaining, are the small initial windows to be found on the north side. The south facade and towers were restored in the nineteenth century, with doors and windows in neo Gothic style, ramparts and battlements. A restoration of high quality and great unity. At the same time the extensive outbuildings were added, with great concern for unity and quality. The walls are built in beautiful granite stone that glistens in the sunshine, highlighted by the alternative red and white stonework, framing the doors and windows.

SITUATION ...
The chateau is set in a magnificent sheltered and peaceful environment with outstanding views over an idyllic pastoral scene. The 495 acres comprise 350 acres of forestry and 145 acres of park and meadow with various lakes. The domain is fenced and shelters a large herd of deer.

The famous and prestigious national stud farm Pompadour is at 21 km, a must for riders as well as for the general public, for which it is the gateway to the world of horses.
The international Brive airport is at 61 km.

Location in France

Correze is situated on the western edge of the Massif Central and contains some of the prettiest villages in France. Agriculture is still the main economy with arable land making up around one third of the department. There are two main rivers cutting through the landscape, the Vezere and the Dordogne. The latter has been tamed by a total of five dams producing a number of large lakes in the south.
Tulle, with a population of 15500, is the departmental capital. It's found stretched out over 3 km on both banks of the River Correze. There's a vibrant market held every Wednesday in front of the Gothic and Romanesque Cathedral, which sells lace, clothes and an extensive selection of local produce.
Brive-la-Gaillarde with a population of around 52,000 is the largest town in the department and has an attractive city centre as well as an excellent infrastructure.
Correze has a number of villages classified as "the most beautiful in France". Collonges la Rouge with its bright red sandstone houses is one of them. It is adorned with flowers and surrounded by a lush green landscape. There's a half-Romanesque church in the centre, which was once used by pilgrims stopping off on their way to Compostela. Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne is one of the most attractive medieval villages in France. Finally, Treignac is one of the largest villages on the list. It is very lively and has much on offer.
Limoges and Rodez airport have regular flights back to the UK, the A20 and A89 which run through the department offer great access both North/South and West/East, and the TGV currently runs to Limoges and in the future to Brive la Gaillarde.
