This romantic château on the Charente-Dordogne border, just 30 minutes east of Angoulême, affords total privacy and tranquility. Built in the 19th century, the château, its park-like grounds, and outbuildings were restored to an extremely high standard. The magnificent four-story limestone structure encloses 6,781 square feet of elegant living space. The grand entrance hall flows into the principal reception rooms, comprising salons, two dining rooms for both formal and intimate gatherings, and a bar. The family areas include a gourmet kitchen, media room, sitting room, games room, and study. There are nine bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and one half bathroom. The main suite has a dressing room, spa-inspired bathroom, and panoramic views of the grounds. Several separate dwellings include the two-bedroom guest house, four-bedroom cottage, and guardian’s house. A summer dining pavilion overlooks the heated outdoor pool and several original stone buildings, which offer scope for development. A studio, garages, formal gardens, and verdant parkland with 360-degree views of the countryside complete the picture of perfection.
