Just 1300 Euro per month gets you a 250m2 portion of a neoclassical castle in the heart of Normandy France
BRB, moving to a 19th C chateau in France.
Can you believe you can rent an entire 2600+ square foot wing of a chateau for less than a tiny studio apartment in most American cities?
First of all, can we just admire that main room for a moment? ALL THE WOOD
The kitchen requires some creativity, but I’m willing to take on the challenge!
Imagine all the fun to be had scouring the flea markets to furnish this beauty.
5 Beds • 2 Baths • 250m2
Location: near Vire France
Airport: Caen (CFR) Airport 50 miles
(Source: Elinor Sheridan for CompleteFrance) Halfway between Caen and Mont St Michel, nestled in the Calvados department in Normandy, is the town of Vire. It has an estimated population of just over 17,000 and has an incredibly diverse landscape all within an hour from the coast. Well-situated and reasonably priced, Vire is a great place to visit as a tourist, and many even choose to set up home (or second home!) in this North-Western town.
An estimated 95% of Vire was bombed in June 1944 during the D-Day invasion, and therefore very little has survived, making for a modern town with wide streets and the open Place du 6 Juin 1944. However, the Église Notre Dame, built from local granite, was salvaged along with the Porte Horloge, the main gateway from when Vire was a walled-city in the Middle Ages, which still stands as a relic of the 13th century in the centre.
There’s a great selection of cafés and restaurants to choose from to enjoy your apéro, as well as a lively market every Friday morning to get yourself some lovely local produce. Vire is renowned for its traditional delicatessen meats, and home to the andouille de Vire, a pork sausage made from pig intestines that’s smoked over beech wood, considered a Norman delicacy.
From the Listing Agent (Translated by Google):
"Built for a deputy of Calvados at the National Convention in the mid-19th century, this neo-classical castle offers a wing for rent. It is in a vast English-style park that this castle imposes its silhouette just 15 minutes from Vire.
After passing the entrance, the main room, classified as a Historical Monument, reveals a Hungarian-point parquet, wall sculptures, moldings, cornices and rosettes.
The second main room also toured on the castle park benefits from its cast iron wood stove.
The kitchen offers, by its size, the comfort of enjoying family meals and cooking with a view of nature.
On the 1st floor, the rooms are ideally served: three beautiful bedrooms, two of which are 20m2, and one with its own dressing room, also have large openings.
A bathroom and a bathroom, with their double enamel basins, complete this level.
A fourth beautiful room is available on the 2nd floor of the building, in the same way as another room that can serve as an office as well as a room that can be used as storage.
Private plot, free access to the park and the wood.
Wood heating, cold water and TEOM included in the charges.
Available immediately. Ideal for a historic pied-à-terre or a green residence.
NOT SUBJECT TO THE DPE (Historical Monument)."
