Réf : 104813LEL23

Beautiful renovation of a 15th century manor hunting lodge, built for a consort of Charles VII of France. Quality outbuildings, large renovated barn and 15 ha of meadow surrounding the chateau

Brought back to life in the late 1930's by five stone masons from the Creuse region who renovated this chateau to a very high standard. The granite stone work throughout the three floors is in excellent condition and the attention to detail is astounding. From the open granite fireplaces to the detail of the windows and carpentry , everything has a quality finish.
Keeping much of the 15th century features of the original chateau , the tower with the three floor climb up the stone stairs , the heavy oak studded doors, to the metal figurie on the hand made windows, the window alcoves with metre thick walls, the attention to detail is wonderful, some very obvious and others a gem to discover.
