In the middle of the Poitou-Charentes region, 420 km to the south of Paris, 13 km from the A10 motorway and less than 75 km from Poitiers-Biard airport with its direct flights to London, Edinburgh, Barcelona and other large European towns. Some 2 hours from Paris-Montparnasse by TGV train.
This castle is 2 km from a village with 1,500 inhabitants, all shops and amenities and 25 minutes from a town with a TGV train station. The surrounding lush, verdant scenery comprises small meadows surrounded by thick hedges and deciduous forests.
The origins of the property appear to date back to the 14th century and the castle still has numerous Medieval features. The rectangular building is flanked at one end by a tower topped with a candlesnuffer roof and a weather vane sporting a coat-of-arms. The north and south facades feature numerous transom windows, each with stained glass. The rendering is tinted with sienna earth and predominantly in a good state of repair.
The roof of the dwelling is covered with Roman tiles which, together with the palm and olive trees, give the property a southern air. A first set of restoration works were carried out during the 1970’s by a learned specialist of the Middle-Ages. These works have been continued by the current owner, also an enthusiast of this historic period. The results are reflected in its overall appearance as well as in numerous features.
This unusual property is a marvellous blend of authenticity and eclecticism. Everything is reasonably sized and cosily proportioned even though this superb small estate can in no way be described as miniature. United by their original and historic character, the main building and its outbuildings are in a good state of repair and can be lived in straightaway. The property appears to be extremely welcoming and pleasant to live in courtesy of the annex house and the delightful, easy to maintain garden. Both the swimming pool and the moats are filled with sparkling, clear water and the ocean is less than 100 km away. The castle, set in a region with a pleasant climate in nuisance-free surroundings, can be appreciated like a delicacy, made even tastier since it has always been secretly submerged in the surrounding woods that provide better protection than its moats.
