Rare example of a 17th Century Templar Château on 12Ha of fields and woods with 9 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, separate cottage and barns authentically restored. The Château is currently run as a gîte. The property has rights and plans to develop an Eco-village with up to 20 turnkey houses.

This 17th Century Templar Château is set in 12Ha of parklands and woods in the Corrèze on the border of the Plateau de Millevaches, an area of outstanding natural beauty. The Château is currently rented out for holidays and has 9 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and can accommodate up to 20 guests. The property boasts a separate 2 bedroom cottage, barns and large salt water swimming pool.

The owner purchased the property with the intention of creating an Eco-village and has successfully applied for the rights to develop up to 20 Eco-houses and the creation of a learning and cultural centre. The well conceived project offers the unique opportunity to develop an ecological venue for retreats and holidays, seminars and workshops. The creation of a Co-operative will enable the developer to sell the Eco-houses to people sharing the same ethos and mission.

Co-ownership of the project is offered at €700k.

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.
