My Dream Property | Escape to the Chateau in Dordogne

Written by on November 10, 2017 in Property for sale

Channel your own escape to the chateau moment with a look at this gorgeous chateau. And no, it won’t break the bank, I wouldn’t do that to you…

It’s the dream isn’t it, a French chateau in beautiful countryside, well it is for me at least. I can’t help looking on-line at castles with pointy turrets and thinking how much that sort of home would suit me!

A Chateau in France at a bargain price

Normally I look, sigh and move on to something that’s more achievable. This magnificent castle though, parts of which date back to the 15th century, is an absolutely bargain and oh so tempting. It’s just been reduced from €318,000 to €299,000 (about £260,00/ US$346,000/AUS$450,000). Located near the village of Hautefort (which has its own enormous, famous castle), Dordogne, in the department of Correze, it’s surrounded by lush countryside, about an hour’s drive from Brive airport, an hour from the gorgeous town of Sarlat-la-Caneda and the Dordogne is on the doorstep.

There’s loads I love about this chateau – for starters an ancient stone staircase. There are big stone fireplaces, wooden beams, the pointy turrets that I love – and it’s absolutely beautiful. Quite a lot of renovation has been done. It’s habitable but there’s plenty more to do and loads of scope to put your own mark on it. The first floor has 5 rooms ripe to be turned into bedrooms, bathrooms, play rooms – whatever.

There are barns which will make for fabulous workshops, party rooms, garages, studio, offices – whatever you fancy.

It’s connected to mains drainage – which is a huge plus. The windows have been updated and most of the roof is renovated (always a big expense on a chateau).

There are 6 hectares of land – your very own park, with beautiful flower gardens…

And, now I’m wondering why I’m even telling you about this because I’ve really fallen head over heels for this one – and why not, your very own fairy tale castle for €299,000 really does mean you can escape to the chateau!
