Fairytale Medieval chateau for sale, Lot-et-Garonne

Summary

Situated in the midst of idyllic countryside, this fairytale chateau is magical from top to bottom. It retains a tremendous depth of character - magnificent fireplaces, chunky oak doors with wrought iron fittings, secret spiral staircases, turrets and towers - it is the very essence of stylish castle living. Renovated to an exceptionally high standard by its current owners, it now offers very modern conveniences that both contrast and complement its medieval character, with ensuites, modern kitchen and pool.
 
The main body of the chateau accommodates seven large bedrooms, and conveniently located on the other side of the courtyard is an eighth with its own living room - ideal for guests or guardians. This property would make a super principle home, a second home or equally a commercial business.
