Tasteful Friends - Medieval Chateau With ‘Remarkable’ Gardens Seeks $3 Million In Central France

I'd have it, purchase price is a mere trifle, but think of the heating costs....

You had me at "remarkable gardens." Pity they didn't include more than one pic of them.

@r1, Oh, geez, another one of those 17th century faux country French McMansions

It's gorgeous with one small and personal exception: I hate those raised fielded panels with the Rococo mouldings. I just don't like the fussiness of them, all French poodle and pale blue powdered wigs. Give me straight lines or war climate Baroque instead.)

No one will ever accuse a French estate agent of offering too many photos of a property. Anything more than 10 is considered wildly extravagant but I found one with 10 (and without heavy watermarks obscuring the details.)

Lovely and fortified enough to fend off zombies - I must have it.

My guess is that it doesn’t have central heat.

Just wear one of your furs.

As they say, if you have to worry about the cost of the heat, you probably couldn't afford it.

Dumps, both of them.

You just use one or two fireplaces and shut the rest off. That is the proper was to recluse.

I’m afraid I’ll need a landing strip for the jets that bring my friends in. I don’t know soul on the continent. I suppose it can be concealed by a few of those marvelously well-placed shrubs.

I was just watching a show about all the old castles, and chateaus in France. There are some obviously gay owners interviewed too.

French revolution rabble showed up wanting to tear down Chenonceau . Care taker informed them they couldn't do that because it was the only bridge across river Cher for miles in either direction. Rabble had to be happy with knocking off a few stones, then went on their way....

I can't comment until I see some pix of the dungeon. Sorry.

The 17th C chateau is gorgeous.
