This beautiful turreted chateau is a true haven of peace, nestled in the heart of the Creusoise countryside and is located in the centre of the medieval village of Crocq, at an altitude of 800 metres, on the Millevaches plateau.
The village provides the most imortant amenities - a doctor, a bakery, a grocery store and schools.
It is at the gateway to the Auvergne and its volcanoes, and a few kilometres from Aubusson, the International City of Tapestry, classified by UNESCO.
The castle has been entirely restored, the owners have preserved and brought to light the many old elements that make it so charming and authentic.
The castle dates back to the medieval period, it was enlarged in the 18th century and numerous works were carried out in the 19th and 20th centuries. It is full of unique architectural features, which need to be seen to be apprciated.
The chateau could be a stunning home, a fantastic business and the outbuildings have so much potential for future projects.
