Superb neo-Gothic 19th Century Chateau for sale on the banks of the Charente undergoing restoration. Built on the foundations of a 14th Century Manoir this property which boasts 3,200m2 of habitable space, has retained a wealth of original architectural period features. Set in enclosed grounds of approximately 2.5 hectares with lovely views over the Charente river.

It would be possible to create 43 bedrooms and have a restaurant with as many as 200 covers and to create two conference rooms. There are numerous terraces.

The Outbuildings include:
Caretaker's house with 2 bedrooms, open plan kitchen and an apartment to convert.
A Building currently used as a house.
Other small outbuildings.
Plenty of space to park 10 - 20 cars and to create garages.

2.5 Hectares of enclosed grounds crossed by a small stream with ornamental 'bassins'. Medieval ruins. An original bamboo forest.

Benefiting from an exceptional restoration the property has retained its authenticity. With about forty main rooms the Chateau has a considerable commercial potential to become a luxury hotel or high quality apartments.

The location is ideal being within easy reach of Cognac ( 8 kms) or Angouleme, ( 38 kms) both of which have airports suitable for private planes. The nearest international airports are Bordeaux, Poitiers and La Rochelle.

Cognac has an 18 hole golf course and the region is rich in excellent restaurants as well as having all the famous Cognac houses nearby. The area has a thriving tourist business but there is a dearth of luxurious five star hotels in the region. This is the perfect opportunity to create such a project on the banks of the Charente.
