Luxurious castle with 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, fenced private pool and within walking distance of Monflanquin.
You will be seduced by the charm of this castle from 1640 which is surrounded by a large garden. You can walk to the village of Monflanquin to buy your fresh croissants in the morning or to have a bite to eat. Everything happens here on and around the village square which, with a beautiful fountain in the middle and terraces around it, is a very pleasant place to be. It is not for nothing that this village is on the list of 'one of the most beautiful villages in France'! Every Thursday morning there is a market and during July and August there is a farmer's market in the evening with live music where you can sit down at one of the long tables. You will be pleasantly surprised by the delicious (organic) regional products, while enjoying the live music.
The castle is situated on a country road on a private and fenced terrain of over 12,500 m2. You drive through the entrance gate and behind the large car park you can see the steps looming up. There is also a carport for 3 cars and a garage for storing bicycles. Outside it feels spacious and quiet. You will enjoy plenty of privacy and luxury will not be lacking. The owners have managed to integrate the comforts of today into the castle of yesteryear. This gives an unprecedented special effect; you walk around in a centuries-old building and will experience that it embraces you with contemporary luxury.
About 50 metres from the castle, an old granary has been transformed into a summer dining room. Thanks to the walls on three sides and the large fireplace, it is possible to have your meals here 'al fresco' early in the spring or simply enjoy a book by the fireplace. There is a beautiful dining table with 14 comfortable chairs, a beautiful outdoor kitchen complete with a dishwasher, gas cooker, fridge, freezer and beautiful kitchen utensils complemented with pottery. A docking station for your IPod offers the opportunity to enjoy your own music.
From the summer dining room you can walk to the walled swimming pool where a cast iron fence guarantees the safety of your children. The pool measures no less than 12 by 6 metres and has Roman steps. This makes it very pleasant to go in and out of the pool and children also regularly take advantage of the steps by playing extensively with their buckets. On the surrounding sun terrace there are sun beds and umbrellas laid out for you. The grounds offer children the opportunity to run and romp around. When you leave the grounds with them through the gate and cross the country road, you will come to a large pond where you can fish! We can only say that we are very enthusiastic about this attractive and luxurious castle.
Once inside through the monumental door you can, when the door is also open in the extension, immediately enjoy the view of the rolling hills with the village on one of the hilltops. From the hall you can turn left to the salon where the ornaments, the high windows and natural stone fireplace catch the eye immediately. In addition to atmospheric accessories there is a comfortable sitting area and flat screen television (satellite no Dutch channels but BVN). The adjoining room invites you to make music; here you will find a real grand piano and a number of armchairs and a sofa for your listeners...
Seen from the hallway opposite the living room you will find the stylish dining room. Here you will find a long wooden dining table that you can set beautifully. Here too, daylight flows freely through the high windows and in the evening you can create the atmosphere of yesteryear with chandeliers and candles. Breakfast seems very attractive in the farmhouse kitchen. There is also a long wooden dining table here. The gas cooker is wide and is equipped with a grill in addition to four gas burners.
There are six bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. All rooms are completely renovated and equipped with luxurious beds and two children's beds of 120 x 160 cm each. The bathrooms are beautiful with dark natural stone as a recurring element as well as the (Italian) rain showers. The six bathrooms have a total of three bathtubs, five showers and six WCs.
For the little ones there are three cots, three highchairs, two baby bathtubs and a dresser in the castle.
Furthermore: table tennis table, jeu de boules balls, badminton, football and various games.
