Elegant Renaissance style 19th C. Castle for sale in Nièvre. Beautiful location. Rolling unspoilt countryside. Small tourist town just 8 kms away offers all shops and resources. 

Normally this type of Château is built above a level of cellars and service rooms so that all the main reception roms are on the raised ground floor, the effect of which is to afford a beautiful view of the grounds and surrounding countryside. The front façade has two towers, one at each corner, with slate roofs. The high roofs add to the elegance of the Chateau as do the large number of asymetrical windows piercing the façade underlined by the use of the yellow limestone contrasting with the more neutral tones of the rendering.
