Are you ready to step into the enchanting world of French history and own a piece of a fairytale castle?

This one-bedroom studio apartment is situated in one of the most handsome and unique castles of the region, a fortress dating back to the 13th century. As you walk up the grand sweeping Louis XIII stone staircase to the first floor, you'll find the apartment on the left – a private oasis with a stunning South West facing view. The castle, with its formidable high walls and garrison-like openings, still exudes the dramatic flavor of its historical roots. Yet, the rooftops and elegant interior spaces tell a tale of a more bourgeois, classical later period, creating an ensemble that represents one of the most elegant and fairytale-like castles in the region.

Recently finished, this studio apartment seamlessly blends modern comfort with historical charm. The open-plan living, dining, and kitchen space is bathed in natural light, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. Clever design features, like a sliding door that conceals the sleeping area fitted with a fold-away double bed, maximize space and functionality. The new ensuite bathroom adds a touch of luxury, completing the perfect retreat within the walls of this historic chateau.

Surrounded by 5 hectares of private gated parkland, the Chateau offers a serene and private setting. The sprawling grounds boast a large pool and a tennis court, providing residents with exclusive recreational facilities. Whether you're looking for a peaceful escape or a place to entertain friends and family, this property offers the best of both worlds.

If you're a fan of winter sports, you're in luck – this Chateau is conveniently close to skiing destinations. Imagine spending your winters on the slopes and returning to the warmth and charm of your historic abode. This royal fantasy is yours for the taking.

If you’re a traveler at heart, the lock-up-and-leave convenience of this studio apartment allows you to explore the world with ease. Your fairytale castle will be patiently waiting for your return, ready to welcome you back to its historical embrace.
