Ref.3098 : French caslte for sale in Auvergne.
This beautiful property is situated between Vichy and Clermont-Ferrand, on the limits of the Allier and Puy-de-Dôme department, in a region renowned for the quality of its landscapes and its touristic offer. It is situated at the exit of a small nice village in a quiet atmosphere where one can hear the bird singing and in some parts, the lapping of the water. The small neighbouring cities benefit from shops and services. Easy motorway access and international airport only 30 minutes away (Clermont-Aulnat).
The chateau was apparently built back in the 15th century and was redesigned back in the 19th. At this time, it has lost all its austerity.
