I’ll Take This: Chateau in Antigny, France

Just one glance at the images of this chateau in France made me want to pack my bags and move! At 13 bedrooms and just 80 acres, it’s practically petite!image

The chateau dates to the 15th century, but had extensive exterior renovations in the 19th century. From the agent’s website:

It has an ornate entrance gate leading to a beautiful, typically French-styled garden, a terrace overlooking the valley below, magnificently carved stone fireplaces and ceilings and a chapel with protected frescos, commissioned by Jean de Moussy which forms part of the “trilogie de la Gartempe”, dating from the end of the 15th century and is set in 32 hectares of pastureland and woods with over 1km of river frontage. It comprises a fully-fitted kitchen with feature fireplace, dining room again with feature stone fireplace leading to the chapel with the famous (listed) frescos, living room again with feature fireplace, entrance with carved stone vaulted ceilings and stained glass windows, games room, 13 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, stables, guardian’s lodge, tennis court, swimming pool, kennels and a riverside lodge.

Hey, I’d be happy living in the stable block by the looks of them! Especially with that garden just outside the door.image

It’s fun to see how they’ve incorporated the old and the new.image

Original ceilings, not original light fixtures.image

The house is a cool €4,750,000 and you can see all of the details here.


  1. The bathroom is a little too Larry Flynt for my taste, but if someone's willing to splurge on a place like this money would be no object so that's not a big problem.

  2. i'm with you on this one! + i'll take one please.

  3. I am ready, so glorious!! Have a great weekend Meg!
