Location

3 hours from Paris via the A10 motorway and 30 minutes from Tours TGV train station, with its 1-hour links to Paris. This property stands between Loches and Tours, on the outskirts of a little village, with a wealth of culture and forests.

Description

A drive leads to the chateau and its landscaped parklands. The residence, in the midst of the wooded parklands, looks down on to a lake and a dense, varied forest, spanning approx. 50 ha and including a 4-ha poplar grove. This chateau, reflecting an architectural style typical of the 19th century, is built of freestone and red brick. Reasonable in size, the building spans four levels, constructed over a cellar. The chateau has a panoramic view over the entire, continuous estate, with no visual nuisances.
On a higher level, a farmstead, spanning approx. 1,200 m², and an 80 m² barn await renovation.

Farmhouse building
A large farmstead, spanning 1,200 m² and awaiting renovation, belongs to the property. It also includes an 80 m² barn. All of the buildings, laid out so as to virtually enclose an inner courtyard, are covered with traditional roof tiles.
The parklands
The parklands are composed of lawns and a large number and variety of outstanding trees such as century-old oak and cedar trees. Below the chateau, a lake with two islets enhances the property. The parklands are extended by a forest estate composed of deciduous trees, where hunts are regularly organised.

Our opinion

This residence is faultless in that it is in a good state of repair inside as well as out and blends harmoniously with its 62 ha of land: a place where everything appears to be exactly as it always was as if it were the most natural thing in the world. It is a coherent property composed of continuous plots of land. This is not a stately chateau with its large reception rooms, but more a family chateau, well-suited to the modern-day way of life, that is easy to maintain and heat.
