Elegantly renovated Chateau with guest house in glorious setting

  • Beautiful renovated chateau
  • 3 bed cottage, coach house & chapel
  • Superb pool/sauna/Hot tub complex
  • 15 acres of valley-side park with ornamental lake
  • Close to the thriving city of Niort & international airport at Poitiers
  • Easy access to La Rochelle/ Ile de Ré / Ile d'Oléron
This striking 19th century chateau was beautifully restored in 2015 to reflect its original splendour.

It is set in commanding position with a little over 6 hectares of glorious valleyside parkland, with woodland paths, a lake and private river banks.

The estate also includes a coach house of around 160m2 which has been converted into a lovely three bedroom cottage with its own sauna, and there is a substantial workshop, a garage, as well as a second house to be finished (subject to necessary permissions).

Situated between the chateau and these outbuildings is a fabulous new swimming pool complex which includes a 12m x 6m heated saltwater pool with sliding roof and electric cover, as well as a sauna, a hot-tub, changing rooms with toilets & shower, and terraces overlooking the valley. Also set in the grounds is a wonderful private Romanesque chapel which has been lovingly restored.

The chateau itself offers just under 600m2 of living accommodation arranged over 5 floors. The basement has a huge traditional kitchen with open fireplace and original dumbwaiter, a billiard room, and a vaulted cellar plus utility room. On the ground floor there is a magnificent entrance hall with an open fireplace, a living room with a fireplace that leads to a south-facing terrace, a sumptuous dining room leading to the terrace, an office, and a WC.

The first and second floors offer a total 4 ensuite bedrooms plus a 2 bedroom apartment with its own sitting room and private bathroom, as well as a further living room and laundry room. The third floor tower room is currently configured as a playroom/ bedroom of 42 m² with 4 windows giving stunning elevated views, and on the fourth floor there is a further renovated room of 42 m².

The converted coach house (approximately 160 m²) consists of a living room, a fully fitted kitchen, a shower room with sauna, a laundry room, a master bedroom with ensuite & two further bedrooms.

This superb chateau was until recently operating as a luxury boutique hotel taking advantage of its superb location just 15 minutes from the thriving city of Niort, under and hour from La Rochelle and 30 mins from Poitiers with its international Airport and 1h20mins TGV connection to Paris

Discuss an Offer

If this or other properties are of potential serious interest, you may wish to speak in confidence and without obligation or commitment with a sympathetic senior negotiator to discuss what flexibility there may be in the price.

Getting the right deal can be a question of good timing and we have that information.

Whatever you read in the press, it is simply not true that one can apply a percentage discount to the price of any property we like the look of. And it is a real shame to fall in love with a property that is beyond what you wish to spend or can afford.

To arrange a callback, please email in-confidence@beauxvillages.com
