Magnificent 16th century chateau in 4 hectares of parkland, Lot-et-Garonne, Nouvelle Aquitaine
Built in the 13th century on an old Roman road, this chateau was initially a "hospitalet" during the Hundred Years' War. Maybe it still hides the treasure of the Knights Templar? Its last restoration dates back to 1810 and its Bonapartist owner did not skimp on the decorations, stuccoes and effigies in honour of his emperor Napoleon I. This is one of the reasons why the castle is listed as a historical monument, which gives it environmental protection and tax benefits. This chateau, completely restored in 2000 to accommodate an activity of B&B and gîtes, will offer you 4 family suites with bathrooms and WCs, 2 spacious and bright bedrooms with their shower room and WCs; and an attic with 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 1 toilet, with the possibility to extend. 3 reception rooms, each more beautiful than the next, a huge bright kitchen fully equipped with its exceptional fireplace and a large utility room used as a laundry room and boiler room. The entire chateau was built on magnificent vaulted cellars and a 4 hectare park with its bi-centenary trees surrounds the building. A 19th century family chapel stands 100 metres away surrounded by its huge cedars. A first barn of 250 m2 barn about ten horse boxes, a lunging arena and a sand school. A bit further up on the property there is a second barn of around 500m² that offers many possibilities. 3 gites with all amenities, recently updated, will welcome about 20 guests. A private and secure swimming pool, hidden from view, and an inner courtyard with shade will help you withstand the heat of summer. You will only need to choose between making it your family home, keeping the activity of bed and breakfast or creating a small charming hotel complex with restaurant. This unusual and unique property will enchant you and is waiting for you to make it your own.
