Twenty kilometres from a medium-sized town in the Poitou-Charentes region. Paris is three hours away by car as the motorway can be reached in twenty minutes. The TGV train station, also twenty kilometres away, provides 90-minute links to the French capital. The region, south of the river Loire, has exceptional architectural wealth and a mild climate.
Constructed of immaculately white, dressed stone, this rectangular building dominates a slight knoll, surrounded on a slightly lower level by green lawns stretching over several hectares. Its south-facing aspect is much appreciated.
The current owner undertook restoration works which lasted numerous years in order to transform the chateau into a small luxury design hotel, spanning approx. 1,000 m². No expense was spared and, most importantly, the layout of the hotel in no way altered the original layout of the chateau. It could, therefore, be turned immediately back into a private residence.
Its three floors, built over cellars, span a total surface area of approx. 1,000 m². The chateau is flanked by two round towers to the south, by another square tower on the north-west side and an octagonal stairway tower on the north facade. They are all topped with a wall-walk set on machicolation. The main facade is symmetrical with mullioned windows adorned with rich neo-Gothic decor. Two turrets with corbelling are on either side of the central row of openings, beginning with the main entrance door which is crowned with pinnacles surrounding an ogive gable.
Above this, a balcony between the turrets is supported by machicolation. The slate roofs, with their variety of complex shapes, are very steep, accentuating the verticality of the building and highlighting the whiteness of the stone.
An elegant, 19th century stable block stands approx. 200 m away from the chateau. The three vaulted entrances are on the east side. The upper section, under the rafters, comprises a hayloft. On one side, a strange looking tower was once used as a water tower.
The 2-bedroomed caretakers’ cottage, adjacent to the property entrance, is in a very good state of repair.
Visitors are immediately fascinated by this impressive architecture which is not at all heavy and brings fairy tales or even a certain castle belonging to Ludwig II of Bavaria to mind. Abounding in space and decor, it is enhanced by the limpid, peaceful surroundings of the Loire Valley. The pristine condition of this 180 year old building is exceptional. Protected by its parklands, this chateau is totally unaffected by the passing of time.
