A flat in the brattice of a listed castle, amidst 200 ha of parklands
with an 18-hole golf course, in the Marches-de-Bretagne region
Missillac, LOIRE-ATLANTIQUE pays-de-loire 44780 FR

Location

The castle, half-way between Nantes and Vannes, in the midst of the Regional Brière Nature Park, is on the edge of a market town with more than 5,000 inhabitants as well as primary and secondary schools. All local shops are within easy walking distance. The Atlantic beaches are 25 minutes away.

Description

Gates, defending the castle entrance on the outskirts of the village, open on to a driveway running alongside a lake and leading to the miniature castle gatehouse: a brattice flanked by two round towers. A drawbridge spanning the moat provides access to the castle courtyard. Opposite, the castle flanked by its many towers is surrounded by a 13-ha lake.
This flat takes up the three top floors of the south tower belonging to the miniature castle gatehouse. A stone stairway, housed in a turret, and a 19th century lift connect the various levels. The flat, spanning a surface area of approx. 220 m² over three levels, comprises four bedrooms and two lounges.

The estate

In addition to an 18-hole golf course, this estate includes a 5-star hotel complex and a gastronomic restaurant. The castle is constructed on a battlemented terrace, completely bordered by a moat and a lake. Its origins date back to the 14th century and a tower from this era is still standing. The castle has been destroyed many times and reconstructed in line with the numerous historic events that have greatly featured in this region’s history. The current building, dating from the 19th century, was built in accordance with plans drawn up by Viollet-le-Duc.

The flat

This flat can be accessed via the castle courtyard. A door opens into a hall paved with cement floor tiles. A lift and a spiral, stone stairway facing one another go up to the flat’s various floors. Two car parking spaces in the courtyard are assigned to this property.


Mezzanine floor
This mezzanine, reached via the stairway, is taken up by a laundry room and a boiler room.
First floor
Both the lift and the stairway provide access to a landing, paved with cement floor tiles. There is a view of the castle through a wooden-framed, casement window. Three doors open into a lounge, a dining room and a kitchen. The lounge walls are covered with floor-to-ceiling panelling. Its grey marble fireplace is topped with a mirror.
Second floor
This landing is identical to that on the previous level. It provides access to two bedrooms, with herringbone pattern, oak wood parquet flooring and walls lined with contemporary panelling, as well as to a bathroom and toilet.
Third floor
Attic space. A corridor paved with cement floor tiles leads to two bedrooms, with strip pattern parquet flooring, and to a bathroom.

Our opinion

The castle, reminiscent of an enchanted fortress, appears to be floating on water. Medieval and renaissance styles of architecture are harmoniously blended together. A drawbridge and battlements are its silent guards. The area around the castle is composed of parklands, with trees hundreds of years old, and a renowned golf course.
This flat, housed in a tower, is distanced from the rest of the co-owned property. High ceilings, panelling and fireplaces are unequivocal proof of its castle status.
