Close to and linked by history to Chateau Biron and a short drive from half the villages voted finest in France, this estate is bounded by forest and small valleys, private and not visible to the public, blessed with game of all types, it is a naturalist's paradise incorporating the well known equestrian "Paddock Paradise System" which the current owners use for keeping and raising the famed Pure Race Spanish (ANCEE) horses in a natural environment.
The estate has been the subject of constant improvement and investment on an annual basis for over a decade, resulting in a combination of ancient buildings connected to all utilities still retaining, in good order, their original features.
Of particular interest and as an example, could be the 900 year old pigeonnier, as original (In medieval times supplying pigeons to the Chateau during the winter periods) but connected with electricity and water. In addition there are many walks and trails through the property, one of which crosses the small river in the forest, that runs through the estate, by way of ancient stone walls and a original stone shepherds hut, to and over a medieval stone bridge.
This is not the usual Chateau/Manoir on offer, rather an experience of being able to live comfortably in an historic enclave, with all amenities, very close to nature in one of France’s most attractive departments with forests, rolling hills, including the wonderful history and patrimoine incorporated in the many village, towns and cities in this part of Nouvelle Aquitaine, from the Caves of Lascaux to the Land of a Thousand Chateaux.
For the summer months, the estate offers an adult and infants pool, tennis court, a 2 hole golf facility a massive selection of fairs, markets throughout the region.
Local Eco providers supplying cheeses, vegetables, meat products, eggs and poultry are close at hand.
Not a Louis XV, or Louis Philippe chateau but a life choice.
Given the enormous opportunities presented here, please contact me for further information, the history, cadastrale ref’s, floor plans, business prospects and videos/photos. This would enable the prospective owner to explore the possibilities of holiday rentals, equestrian boarding or breeding, glamping, eco farming and more and maybe just enjoying the estate for what it is.
It is not for the faint hearted, but great things never are.
