This was once a beautiful castle with a few farmhouses and barns around it. The castle is now surrounded by a scaffolding and is covered by a corrugated roof. This has been done to protect the building and to carry out the necessary work.
On old photographs you can still see how the castle used to be and these photos will also be the anchor in the renovations.
On the 1st floor you can still taste a little bit castle allure. High decorated ceilings, large spaces and fireplaces.
Furthermore, you see everywhere that there is a lot of work to be done. The entire roof, window frames, doors, walls, ceilings, electricity, drainage, everything has to be renewed to bring this castle back to its original state.
The ground floor consists of several spaces, probably the service spaces, storage rooms and the cellars.
The living areas were on the first floor. Here are large high rooms, the staircase is centrally located for guests.
On the side was the staircase for the staff.
The sleeping areas were on the 2nd floor.
The poor condition of the roof construction is also clearly visible on this floor.
Above is an attic.
On the plot of land of nearly 8.5 hectares, next to the castle there are two barns that are still in a reasonable condition.
Two barns that have become ruins and two old farmhouses also more ruins than houses.
Approximately 4.5 hectares are leased to a farmer who grazes his cows and uses it as hay land.
Next to the castle there is a mobile home to stay during the work.
This is a very big project where the purchase is financially the smallest step. It is a multi-year plan for someone with vision and financial resources to bring it to a good end.

The department of Haute-Vienne is in the region of Limousin and boasts a varied landscape of forests, countryside and lakes that attract many tourists each year looking for a range of activities including walking, fishing, sailing, boating and skiing.
In addition, the department has a strong historical and cultural heritage and the landscape is dotted with Roman churches, abbeys and fortified castles. Beautiful man-made beaches are easily accessible and are a good alternative for a great day out. In particular, the Lake of Vassiviere, created in 1950, is extremely popular with visitors.
It is sometimes known as the Land of a Thousand Lakes, the Limousin and its Haute-Vienne department offer beautiful and preserved landscapes. Waterfalls sparkling in the middle of rocks and trees, myriads of flowers and impressive dense forests are the kind of treasures that can be discovered in the department.
Transport links are good too, the easy and cheap access from the United Kingdom with companies as Ryanair or from French cities made that Limoges and the Haute-Vienne became an attractive destination. There is also a project of enlargement for Limoges’ airport.
The department has a semi-continential climate with summer temperatures in the mid 20’s, perfect for enjoying the scenery.
