Sold

Live a fairytale dream in this fully-renovated 19th century romantic castle on 10 hectares (25 acres) with its own private lake, swimming pool set within a formal rose garden, custom kitchen with granite and mosaics, and even a gym and cinema/media room. Each of its spacious 8 bedrooms has its own marble bathroom, plus there is space for several more bedrooms if needed. A beautiful lakeside guesthouse offers 3 further bedrooms, plus there is a separate caretaker apartment. Be dazzled with stunning, uninterrupted views, the gentle sounds of birds and rippling water, and the rich scents of roses and lavender. Luxuriate in total privacy, but travel only 2 km to reach all amenities. Beautiful Laval, named a 'City of Art and History' is only 15 km away, featuring a new high-speed rail line that is only 65 minutes to Paris-Montparnasse station.

The chateau was once open to the public, then operated as a small but very exclusive hotel, and is now functioning as a family home. It is, however, SCI-owned and operates as a thriving holiday-rental business. Featuring a motte (mound) from the time of Henry II surrounded by a moat, spectacular parkland, ancient trees, a private spring-fed fishing lake, helicopter access and a Renaissance-inspired swimming pool within a secluded walled rose garden, the chateau is a haven of peace and tranquillity. Outbuildings include the soaring marble-floored Orangery (currently functioning as a reception area and pool-house), the Pavillon (a 3-bedroomed guest-house) and two further outbuildings (one of which looks like a smaller castle) to renovate. The chateau may be sold fully-furnished.

Here one can bask in the glorious French countryside, or discover the riches of the surrounding areas of the Loire Valley, Brittany and Normandy from this central location.  Within a 15 minute drive, one can experience beautiful gardens, golf, horse-riding, nature-activity parks, river cruises, museums, stately homes, Michelin-starred restaurants and more. Or, you may simply never wish to leave the grounds of your fairytale castle...
