Own your very own piece of French history with this Louis XI hunting lodge! Stunning building in unrivaled location would make an amazing country house hotel in an area that already attracts tourists in their droves.
Set in the heart of the Loire Valley Castles route (between Chinon and Villandry, on the doorstep of Azay le Rideau) the 200m2 entertaining hall on the ground floor make it a perfect event venue. Easy accessible by air and TGV to Tours from the UK.
Private gates secluded form the main road mean the château is not visible from the exterior.
Gate lodge residence comprises living space, 2 sleeping areas, bathroom, kitchen. Up the sweeping drive to the main house with a breathtaking view of the Forest surrounding it. Beautiful Fuye (dovecot) from the 16th Century accessible and suitable for renovation.
Main house comprises very spacious reception/dining areas (2 rooms) and outside covered terrace areas at both ends. To the rear are the practical catering kitchens and parking for staff/catering. Barns and storage to rear. 1st floor comprises 11 en-suite bedrooms and one 2-bedroom apartment with bathroom, all decorated to a very workable standard. The chateau is currently used as a wedding venue which works very well in high season.
Definite possibilities to extend that business and to develop a luxurious country house hotel which will have longer year-round appeal, given proximity to Paris (TGV Tours-Paris 55 mins) there is a lucrative market within striking distance.
