Chateau Dordogne2At the entrance to the property is an old house and a barn which have potential for renovation, including an enclosed garden and rain water storage reserve.  Seriously? If this is the barn below, I’d just take that!Chateau Dordogne4

  1. Wow the barn alone is to die for!! I love rounded doors and shutters.

    I think I'm just a little bit shy of the asking price so I'd better not. lol

  2. Actually, that price looks really low for that amazing property. There are crappy NEW houses on Long Island being sold for that amount, and this place trumps them all. If only...

  3. Are you holding sign-ups for boarders? Put me at the top of the list (I'm a great cook and have passable french language skills). Have a wonderful 4th and 14 Juillet!!! Mary

  4. What a wonderful piece of real estate to contemplate and dream about! Thank you for sharing!
