This property is located 3.5 hours from Paris by motorway, between Tours and Poitiers, in a small village in beautiful country side surroundings, a few kilometres from all shops and services. It features a Renaissance chateau with many 19th century outbuildings (a caretaker's house, several stone buildings, a dovecote and ruins of a chapel) set on c.a. 5 ha (12.4 acres) of gently rolling landscaped grounds.
|The main entrance leads to the older part of the
two defensive 15th century towers linked by a stone covered way (here the north-eastern tower).
Kept by two strong defensive 15th century towers, with sculptured stone, the chateau offers a main building facing South probably built just after the towers, with a third round tower on the northern side. Made of stone with a slate roof, this remarkable building is in good general condition.
|The southern part of the main building and the south-eastern tower open onto a terrace and the gently rolling grounds.|
It offers c.a. 650 sq. mt. (6,994 sq. ft.) of total space for 2 levels plus large attics and cellars. Some inner renovation works are to be done.
|The northern side offers sculptured stone and a third (more recently built) tower.|
On the ground floor, a main entrance, on the southern side, distributes a large living room opening onto a terrace and the grounds, with a monumental stone fireplace, parquet floor and "à la Française" ceilings, then a dining room with another access to the terrace and marble fireplace, a bedroom with an adjoining bathroom set in one tower, a laundry room, a small chapel in the second tower, a large kitchen with tiled floor and a monumental fireplace and then a study. Another entrance leads to a corridor running along the northern side toward the oak ovoid staircase set in a 3rd tower (probably dating from the 19th century). This level offers 3.5 mt. high ceilings (11.7 ft.)
|The living room with a monumental stone fireplace.|
The 1st level offers a long corridor, with parquet floor, on the northern side, giving access to 7 bedrooms (including 5 opening onto the grounds on the southern side, and one in the north-eastern tower), then 2 bathrooms and 4 shower rooms (including one in the south-eastern tower).
|The dining room.||A small inner chapel in the north-eastern tower.|
The staircase also leads to the attics, divided into 2 large rooms (c.a. 129 sq. mt. i.e. 1,388 sq. ft plus c.a. 49 sq. mt. i.e. 527 sq. ft.) with 5 large windows with mullions. A path gives access to the south-eastern tower and a covered way (with windows and genuine loopholes) toward the north-eastern tower.
