This chateau, constructed in the 19th century in keeping with a classical design over three levels, stands in a verdant setting, away from all nuisances. Easy to get to, this property is but 200 m from a secondary road. Its location and its layout make it an ideal site for a commercial activity. This property, extending over 3 hectares, includes the actual chateau, two other buildings converted into holiday accommodation units, a small chapel, an enclosure with grasslands for animals and parklands.

The chateau

The exterior walls of this chateau, with its granite lower sections standing over a cellar, are constructed from rendered quarry stone blocks. The string courses, quoins and framing around the openings are made of freestone. Two wings flank either side of the central building with its terrace. A tower adjoins the rear of the building which is topped with a natural slate roof. It spans a total floor surface area of approx. 600 m².

Ground floor
A vestibule, with parquet flooring, houses a marble fireplace. It provides access, on the right-hand side, to a dining room, spanning approx. 60 m², with herringbone pattern parquet flooring under a stucco ceiling with rosettes, which precedes a kitchen area. The vestibule leads straight on into the restaurant room which has parquet flooring, a marble fireplace and wainscoting. This room is extended by an aluminium-framed veranda. On the left-hand side of the entrance hall is a reception room with terracotta floor tiles under a ceiling with exposed beams. This is followed by a beauty treatment area that includes a cubicle for providing massages and a toilet. This room, with its floor tiles, was recently renovated. After this comes the private section, the kitchen, an extension room spanning more than 100 m² as well as a superb veranda, aligned perfectly with the chateau, and lastly a linen room and toilet. Above the private section are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The top floor is taken up by a recently renovated, private, 60 m² flat.

Our opinion

Standing on the outskirts of a pretty little town in the Loire area and on the border of the region around Angers, this chateau has been well-known, for a number of years, courtesy of its bed & breakfast and seminar activities. Its location, ideal in this respect, is an unbeatable asset which is enhanced by the numerous conversion works that were recently carried out. Such a reputation, together with these new additions, makes it possible for those wishing to take over the business to envisage scope for development.
