We propose this feudal castle in the Bourbonnais 30 minutes from Vichy and 10 minutes from the highway.
The oldest architectural elements have their origins in the 15th century.
For reasons of comfort, the arrangements have been made until the 18th century, with respect, however, for the authenticity and charm of the house.
50 minutes south of Montluçon.
Bathed in walled moats, 3 meters deep, the building overlooks the property of 5.67 hectares.
Two large symmetrical outbuildings surround a rose garden and the swimming pool.
Roofed in ancient tiles, their charm and character are in harmony with the castle.
These outbuildings house a 5-room gite with the possibility of creating several others, a restaurant with bar and professional kitchen, many storages, a theater and an exhibition space.
An alley lined with tall trees directs us to the property. The moats sleep at the foot of the castle and are tormented only by the comings and goings of the swans geese and ducks. They are fed by a river and a source.
It is necessary to cross a stone bridge having replaced the drawbridge after 1611, to pass the entrance porch  having kept the vestiges of the stunner, to finally reach the inner courtyard. This one is paved.
A well emerges at its center and is partly surrounded by half - timbered galleries making access to the various rooms easier.
There is a large tower enclosing the spiral staircase and the barbican with a small guard room upstairs. One would think oneself back in the time of the knights. Also one finds there a very large vaulted cellar, the old medieval kitchens, the bakery ...
Above, connected by the gallery outside two independent bedrooms with their bathroom
A granite staircase leads to the real ground floor of the lord's apartments. A large living room covered with wood and illuminated by large openings followed by a high ceiling dining room with its also very bright kitchen.

The spiral staircase goes upstairs, which offers three large bedrooms that have kept the charm of the time with their tiles, their French-style ceiling and their fireplace. Two bathrooms complete the whole.
The upper floor offers two large rooms under an apparent structure in the shape of an overturned boat hull. Exhibition space today, they nevertheless offer the modalities for a home cinema.
On a property of approximately 5,67 hectares composed of parkland, meadows and an area benefiting from food for a campsite, this masterpiece of feudal architecture, perfectly preserved in its authenticity but enjoying modern comfort, is an exception.
Located on the edge of a village, in a tourist and pleasant region, this project full of history offers many opportunities.

Our idea: a rare building which has kept all its authenticity and which is at the moment transformed into a family house with lodgings, room / restaurant, outdoor pool in the courtyard and meadows for horses.
