House - Châteaumeillant (18370) - CHER € 731,500 € 694,925 (HAI)

Réf : A16130

Exquisite, spacious home on the edge of ancient village, with 5 ensuite bedrooms.

Built within the old ramparts of Châteaumeillant which dates back to Roman times, this elegant property is being sold fully-furnished and equipped, and would make a stunning bed and breakfast. Backing onto open countryside with glorious views, it is nevertheless within easy walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants, and just 3 hours from Paris.

Châteaumeillant is part of the original Berry region of central France, a little-known rural area boasting vibrant natural environments and unique wines. The town and surrounding villages have their own wine appellation, and specialise in a rosé wine known as vin gris. With its many heritage museums, this is a region loved by writers, artists, musicians and creatives for its romance and culture.
