A 19th century chateau, with outbuildings and parklands, in an 11th century town in the east of the French department of Vendée. The protected natural surroundings, to the south of a region featuring irregular-shaped fields separated by hedges and ditches in undulating countryside, where production of local wines is flourishing, are crossed by numerous streams. La-Roche-sur-Yon, Les-Herbiers and La-Châtaigneraie are easily reached via the main roads. The nearby Chantonnay TER train station provides links to Tours, Saumur and even the beaches of Les-Sables-d'Olonne. The Puy-du-Fou historical theme park is but a 25-minute drive away. In the midst of a little historic town, the commerce of which was renowned as far as Spain in the 15th century, where inhabitants can take advantage of all the infrastructures and shops of the neighbouring Chantonnay. The Viscount of Thouars had a castle built here in the 12th century, but only the tower currently remains. Enclosed by a stone wall, the chateau is surrounded by outbuildings with an orangery, guest pavilions and the old stables. This property has two main entrances. One opens on to one of the oldest streets in the town. The other leads from the main courtyard to the entrance porch way. The chateauThis property is composed of several character buildings. The chateau, built in 1856, is impressive with approx. 650 m² of living space, a 200 m² basement and ten bedrooms; unusual features that do not include the 100 m² of attic space that await conversion. The main building, slightly set back, is flanked by two symmetrical buildings, constructed outside the fabric of the carcass. Four turrets, with corbelling, elegantly enhance each corner of the masonry with their candlesnuffer roofs and their finials. The carcass is constructed from granite, dressed stone and quarry stone blocks. The traditional roofing framework is covered with natural slate. It was redone in 1990. The chateaus architecture, spanning five levels, is elaborate. Although a few renovation works need to be scheduled, the main carcass is in a good state of repair. Ground floor This chateau is entered via a granite porch way and a vast main hall, with two impressive columns, where family, friends and guests can be welcomed. Its 4 m high ceiling makes residents feel small. The floor is composed of Burgundy stone and slate. It precedes a long corridor that crosses the entire building. Floor-to-ceiling panelling conceals several storage areas. Said corridor provides access, right, to the utility areas comprising a large, semi-professional kitchen, notably fitted with an old potager (a secondary hearth where soups and other previously prepared dishes were cooked on embers), a bread oven and a fireplace. All these are original features. Adjoining this room is a storeroom, on one side, and a laundry room, on the other, with a door leading to the basement. A corridor, facing the kitchen, provides access to a landing with two separate toilets, an office and a meal preparation room which communicates with the large, main lounge. This room is outstanding not only because of its carved, oak wood panelling, but also because of its fireplace and wide trumeau. Three tall windows, drawing the eye towards the outside, provide a magnificent view of the parklands. Once the meal is finished, residents can continue their discussion in the smoking room or in the second lounge. All the ground floor rooms still have their original parquet flooring. These large rooms, with 4 m high ceilings and numerous fireplaces, exude a warm atmosphere. The first and second floors are reached via the exceptional main stairway. The third can be reached via a back stairway. First floor The vast, solid wood landing provides access to a first bedroom, with storage areas and a toilet, with a wash-hand basin. A ...
