Ref. 4061: 15th C. fortified castle, redesigned in the 19th C., over looking the river. On the edge of the Poitou and Brenne regions, 300 km from Paris and Bordeaux, built on a rocky spur overlooking the river with a view over the countryside, the Chteau and its grounds constitute an exceptional estate. Close to shops and 40 minutes from a TGV station. Enjoying a dominant view, the proximity of a small hamlet protects the castle from isolation while being sheltered from view and nuisances. This 15th century fortress, redesigned in the 19th century, is defended by large crenellated towers. After extensive work in the 1990s, the interior was restored to its original magnificent proportions, with vaults, ogives for the vestibule and a cradle for the floor, as well as two stone staircases: one straight staircase housed in the thickness of the wall and the second in marble in the pavilion. The remains of the old stair tower are still visible. On the ground floor there is a large living room with a monumental fireplace. A study. Two bedrooms in the towers. To the left of the entrance hall with its beautiful stone staircase, there is a large kitchen with scullery, a hall with toilets. The first floor includes the master suite with dressing room, a second spacious living room, a second bedroom and 2 other bedrooms in the towers. The second floor has 4 bedrooms with bathrooms and offers spectacular views from all windows. The third floor has a large bedroom and a bedroom with bathroom with wooden beams. The vaulted basement contains the old kitchen and storage rooms and two towers. A stone staircase connects the different floors. The estate comprises two caretakers' houses, one with 4 bedrooms and two covered car parks, the other with 3 bedrooms and two covered car parks. Annexes with 17 rooms on the ground floor and the same number on the first floor, closed by double-glazed doors with workshop, garages, former stables, etc. Chapel with ribbed vaults and slate roof built around 1868, situated next to the castle.
