Two hours from Paris

Situated at the core of Perche, a mere two hours from Paris, lies an iconic historical monument estate dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries. Once the fief of the Governor of Bellême, this estate is perched atop a commanding hill within a registered natural site. Comprising a fortified castle dominated by its keep and five towers, surrounded by moats, the estate overlooks a 16th-century manor adorned with three towers and a renovated wing suitable for receptions.

The castle, boasting approximately 1,430 m2 of living space, showcases historic 18th-century salons on the ground floor.

On the upper level, eleven bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a chapel contribute to the estate's historical charm.

Maintaining good overall condition, the castle has undergone meticulous restoration work that preserves its historical elements—such as woodwork, alcoves, parquet floors, and fireplaces—while introducing modern amenities for enhanced comfort, including a heat pump, thermodynamic water heaters, partial double glazing, and insulation.

This property stands as a rare example of a grand 17th-century castle in the Perche region, where even the Grand Dauphin, son of Louis XIV, once frequented for hunting expeditions.

Various outbuildings encompass the castle, including a manor house utilised as a farmhouse, a pigeon house awaiting restoration, a caretaker's house, a kennel, barns, and more.

The estate also boasts luxurious features like a heated swimming pool, a gym, an ERP room, and exceptional panoramic views

The entire property, peacefully situated on approximately 30 hectares of land, including 12 hectares of woods and 14 hectares of open fields, boasts a delightful landscaped English garden enclosed by walls, featuring a beautiful orangery, greenhouses, a sheepfold, a certified cedar tree, and a pond.
