With its towers, diverse architectural features and harmonious proportions, this property resumes perfectly the eclectic taste and charm of the second half of the nineteenth century. Despite the fact that the property is situated on the edge of a small village and close to a major town, the setting is very peaceful and one could be in the heart of the countryside with views of the surrounding fields and woods. The interiors have been superbly restored with much taste and the present owners have managed to retain the atmosphere of the Belle Époque whilst bringing modern comforts to the property. Possessing 9 tastefully decorated bedrooms (7 with en-suite bathrooms and WC) this chateau would be ideal for a project in guest accommodation.
