Ruins for sale - burgundy - In Côte dOr, a middle-class house,-its parklands and its romantic ruins

Nestling between the Vingeanne Valley and the so-called Velours forest, less than 3 hours from Paris, 30 minutes from Dijon, and 15 minutes from North Dijon (Valmy district). This house, accessed via the A5 motorway, is set in a small village along the road connecting Dijon to Troyes, to the north-north-west of Dijon. An aerodrome 3 km (2 miles) away could prove useful. The village has approx. 200 inhabitants and a primary school as it is part of an inter-communal educational grouping. The nearest shops are a few minutes walk away, with a hypermarket just a few miles away. The chteau de Fontaine Franaise and the Chteau de Lux are not nearby. The sector between Tille and Vingeanne also features hiking trails, providing access to a major heritage of great interest. The sector, therefore, has an excellent tourist trade. The A5 motorway slip road is an asset as its proximity makes the house very easy to access.

Ruins for sale - center-val-de-loire - A 12th and 13th century fortress and an 18th century dwelling in the Bourbonnais region

In the Sologne Bourbonnaise region, 330 km (206 miles) from Paris, between Vichy (50 km / 31 miles) and its international airport, and Moulins (30 km / 19 miles), this old medieval fortress can be proud of having been one of the two castles in the Besbre Valley to have withstood the English during the 100 Years War.
In the 13th century, the Chtellenie de Chavroches was donated to Batrice de Bourbon wife of Robert de Clermont, son of Saint-Louis.
At the foot of the castle, a peaceful village backs on to its mound. Peace and quiet reigns in the surrounding unspoilt countryside. There are no nuisances. The dominant view stretches to the Monts de la Madeleine, and in clear weather the Puys Mountains can be seen in the distance. In the high part of the village, a neighbouring 12th century church, with its illuminated stained glass windows, marks the time of day.
