This is a unique opportunity to buy a Château that has been the subject of a very high quality, ‘inch by inch’, sympathetic renovation. The Château is situated in a stunning elevated location with panoramic views overlooking its own land and lake, with the lovely Limousin countryside and a pretty French village on the horizon.

All the work has been carried out by quality craftsmen and the end result is quite stunning; the Château is light and spacious with a feeling of warmth, charm and character.

This property is ideal for someone looking for a very exclusive, one-off family home with separate detached accommodation for friends and family, or for someone looking for a property with business potential, e.g. to run as a boutique hotel.

There are miles of local off-road tracks directly from the Château, good local vets and blacksmiths, who speak English.
