Description

19TH CENTURY CHATEAU WITH OUTBUILDINGS, GROUNDS 9hA, IDEAL FOR HOSTING EVENTS

The château was originally an 8th century priory, built by monks in the days of Charlemagne, and later redesigned in the 18th and 19th centuries. It is located between Berry and Sologne. With approximately 600sqm of living space in the chateau itself, this figure rises to 1000sqm when taking into account its numerous outbuildings, and there is potential for even further development.

Currently used to host events, the chateau boasts large reception rooms (approx. 550sqm) and all the corresponding equipment.

The 40ha of grounds (of which 15ha is woods and 4ha a lake) is landscaped as an English garden and hosts century-old trees.

Several outbuildings have been adapted to offer accommodation for events and conferences, including a barn used as reception rooms, a residential house and five wooden leisure chalets.

1) The chateau:

The main building (and the oldest) makes up the southern wing. It has retained the majority of its original features, i.e.: wooden parquet or marble floors, fireplaces, wood panelling. The 3m high ceilings on the ground floor bring elegance, volume and light to the rooms. It is built over two floors and the loft could also be converted.

Adjoining this building, in the form of an L, is a later large wing built in the 19th century over three floors, and also with potentially convertible loft space.

The architecture is uniform, with crepied stone walls, plain facades and slate roofs. A tower, built in the interior angle of the L, reinforces the overall architectural look.

Ground floor:

Entry from the south façade, via a symmetrical double staircase ending in a stoop, which gives access to the grand entrance hall with its marble mosaic floor.

To the left of the hall, a large reception room with natural stone floor (recently replaced)

To the right of the hall, another reception room with a herringbone parquet floor, wood panelling and a marble fireplace, leading to a library with a chequerboard tiled floor.

Beyond the library, another large reception room with marble floors and a wood stove.
