Introducing an incredibly captivating and beautifully-restored chateau located in the charming region of Poitou-Charentes, Deux-Sèvres, Niort, France. Enjoy the splendour of living within its historic walls, which all set amidst magnificent gardens and parklands adorned with majestic 200-year-old cedar trees. Revel in the unspoiled views across the rolling countryside of the tranquil Gâtine.

This chateau harbours an intriguing past with vivid imprints from different eras. The original chateau, with its round, western tower, dates back as far as the 14th century. However, significant transformations have manifested over time. The late 16th century beheld the addition of a second, eastern wing. Two square towers were also added in the 17th century, of which only one, the eastern tower, stands today. The round 14th-century tower, initially designed with fortified battlements, later adopted an elegant, hand-carved stone balustrade.

A closer look at the property's decorative details further reveals extensive influences predominantly from the 18th-century enlightenment. The period brought about window enlargements, including those in the grand Louis XIII salon. Here, double-aspect windows allow light to bath the room, casting a glow on the exquisite period details. The latter part of the century saw the addition of the Mansard roof which conveniently rose the height of the second-floor rooms allowing larger window installations. Over time, these rooms served as servants' quarters.

The chateau’s outbuildings hold their own significant charm. The neo-classical stable block and the barn, manifesting an evocative chapel-like facade, suggest a design that prizes aesthetics as much as functionality.

Over the last three years, a considerable effort has been made to restore, refit, and redecorate the entire chateau. The result is a tasteful blend of authenticity and detail-oriented design crafted to create a truly stunning living environment.

The remarkable home spans over 600m2 of comfortable living accommodation that harmoniously balances to between intimate retreats and grand, welcoming spaces, like the Louis XIII salon.
