Detailed description

In the heart of a small village you will find this magnificent residence built at the beginning of the 18th century, the former hunting lodge of King Louis XV. The chateau has for many years served as a gourmet restaurant. It is full of original elements that make the building so special, full of charm and character.
Ideally located, it is located 3km from shops and 15km from Vesoul, the Haute-Saône capital city.
The chateau stands on 15,500 m2 of landscaped park surrounded by an old stone wall. It has outbuildings, an independent pavilion with swimming pool, changing rooms, summer kitchen and cellar. On a beautiful paved courtyard, the two guard houses are located on either side of the entrance gate and can serve as individual accommodation.
This property offers multiple possibilities, guest rooms, restaurant, family home ...

THE CHÂTEAU: - on the ground floor, a large marble entrance hall with fireplace, original oak staircase and mezzanine. A large living/dining room, partly vaulted, wooden floor, marble fireplace. WC and sink, large kitchen.
On the 1st floor the mezzanine, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, the large hallway leads to the 2nd floor with a convertible attic with high ceilings.
There are 2 gatekeepers houses offering 3 more bedrooms.

The outbuildings of the castle will allow you to develop more rooms, it offers a large garage, shed, courtyard and garden

Behind the Chateau, a country lane leads to an extra plot of land (negotiable during the sale) on the edge of the Saône, ideal for building a jetty.

In the 18th century, the castle belonged to Claude-François Noirot, knight, colonel in the French army, friend of the Duke of Lorraine Stanislas Leszczynski.
The knight was known to have arranged the marriage between King Louis XV and Marie Leszczynska, and the castle would have been their first meeting place on the occasion of a hunting trip.

The “Haute Saone”, part of France-Comté, colloquially known as ‘Le Grand Est Oublié’ has now become “The New Place” to be !
And not without good reason! Not only has it, seemingly, been forgotten by Paris but it’s never top of the list for the millions of tourists who flock to the French beaches, the Alps or other popular parts of the country, during their holidays. Over the last 10 - 20 years the local climate has become more Mediterranean but without the Mistral and the oppressive heat more and more common on the Côte D’Azur or the Atlantic. From a traveller’s perspective we are a reasonable 5 hour drive from Calais, 3 hours from Luxembourg and with Basel less then 2 hours our nearest international airport with daily flights to the UK. Les Vosges, the Jura and the Alsace are no more than a 1 hrs drive and Dijon, very much the gastronomic capital of France, is just over an hour away. If you love farm lands and country side, rolling hills and a great deal of culture and history then I really recommend the Haute Saone. It’s very much possible that you’ll fall in love with this stunning and forgotten little piece of France.
