Magnificent 15th Century Château with outbuildings, set in a 10 ha park of 10 ha and just 20 minutes from the motorway and international airport of Brive-Vallée de la Dordogne.

Voir l'annonce en Français Overlooking the beautiful Lot and Correze countryside, between the villages of Martel and Turenne, the Château was built in the 15th century for the Vicomté de Turenne. Many building works were undertaken in 16th century, and later on the 18th century during various successions and sales (present windows on the west façade), before that the Château was entirely renovated by the current owners. The main building has two circular towers at each end of the west façade, and a polygonal tower for the upstairs, on the rear, which it is thought was the chapel. There are a number of "Machicolations" on the tower and also on part of the main building (through which stones and other materials could be dropped onto attackers below, at the base of a defensive wall).
