Full description:

Set in a completely preserved area of the Perigord Vert, this old chateau (late 16th/early 17th century) in Renaissance style, whose facade was rebuilt in the 19th century, overlooks the valley of the Lizonne in the heart of the Parc Naturel Régional Périgord Limousin, just 35 km from Angouleme, 140 km from Bordeaux and 2 hours 15 minutes from Paris by TGV.

The residence, once owned by the Earl de Galard of Béarn and the Marquis de Livron whose coat of arms and motto can still be seen in the great stone staircase, successfully combines comfort and authenticity with original features such as oak roof structure, turrets, French-style high ceilings, fireplaces, some panelling, Versailles parquet, and large entrance hall opening onto a stone staircase adorned with a beautiful wrought iron railing. The residence includes 11 rooms in the chateau and 5 rooms in the converted wing, or 867 m2 on two levels (excluding attic).

About 3.5 hectares of park land.

There is the possibility of buying another 46.5 hectares.

The chateau, with extensive outbuildings (over 1000m2) benefits from parkland with century old trees, a heated pool of 6 x 12 m perfectly integrated into the landscape, a fountain and a pond fed by a water source. This unique area in the heart of a quiet village is most attractive due to its elevated yet protected position, and its charm and tranquility in well kept yet natural countryside. The complex has great potential with its outbuildings, the caretaker's house, and stables; the entire ensemble is in good condition, including the roofs and structure of the buildings.
