Château - CONFOLENS (16500) - CHARENTE € 869,200 (HAI)


Unique historic Logis and two guest houses with 19 hectares of land: plantation, ancient woodland, organic meadows, river frontage and imposing barn.

Beauty and tranquillity are the key words for this large domain tucked away between the rolling hills of the North Charente countryside. Enhanced with spectacular views and river frontage, part of the buildings are said to date back to the 14th and 16th century. Many signs of the past can be found throughout the property including engravings and an expertly conserved painting on the chimney in the dining hall that represents the Gracieux coat of arms, with the distinct red ribbon that only the king's musketeers were allowed to bear.
