This rare property has only been owned by two families since 1799. It is nestled in a picturesque valley, the Château boasts many stories over the centuries. Today, the Château stands as an exceptional, unique, and well-preserved example of medieval architecture. It is in excellent condition, not requiring any structural work, and it benefits from the status of being a "historic monument," which means that 100% of maintenance costs can be deducted before taxes in France and that also includes the Tax Foncier, which is only €2,652.

Originally, it was completely circular, offering protection from small groups of marauding soldiers. It is encompassed by a double moat, home to large fish and a pair of black swans. Access is via a working drawbridge, as shown in the video for this property. The castle's circular design features an inner courtyard adorned with towers, turrets, and buttresses. The elegant white stone walls are clunch (hard chalk), which was used in Roman times. It lends the castle a timeless and resplendent appearance. Clunch, when first quarried, is wet and can be cut by a saw, but when dried out, becomes a hard, durable material that is difficult to work. The terrace overlooking the moat was created in the 18th century, when the south-facing wall was removed. The only visible remaining defenses are the arrow ports in the north tower and the working drawbridge.

Inside, the ground floor offers an impressive 198m² of living space, including a spacious napoleon lll styled drawing & dining room, a main entrance reception room, two kitchens, a library/study and 2 kitchens. The original chapel is still in place as a reminder to the long history of the castle. The East and West staircases provide access to the upper floors, where six bedrooms and 4 stunning bathrooms and shower rooms await. Original features such as herringbone parquet flooring, intricate ceiling roses, and charming fireplaces have been meticulously preserved. There is the possibility of creating more bedrooms in the attic (120 m²). The cellars that used to house the kitchens are used for a large laundry and the boiler room.

One approaches the chateau via a fine avenue of lime trees. Before arriving at the draw bridge there are 2 annexes, perfect for gîtes, a tool shed, and a dove house. The surrounding parkland, and wooded area is bordering by a small river.

With its enchanting prestigious appearance and romantic setting, it is a perfect wedding venue for those looking to establish a business in France. Imagine hosting unforgettable events in this fairytale setting, where history and elegance combine to create an unparalleled experience.
