A rare find, this fully renovated medieval "chateau-fort" dating to the 11th Century has hosted nobility and royalty through the ages. It is presented turn-key, having the renovation approval of the UDAP (Architects de Batiments de France) and classed as a historic monument. Come and see this luxury home on the brow of medieval Airvault, birth town of Voltaire with its abbey and famous Roman market.

Within the 4 towering walls lie three buildings dating from the 14th and 15th C. The main residential building has spacious accommodation over 3 floors with a 84 m2 grand salon (dining-living room) with walk-in fireplace, beams, stained glass windows, tiled floor and underfloor heating. A fully fitted kitchen, WC and private terrace lie adjacent. An impressive staircase gives access to the above bedrooms.
There are two master bedrooms with bathrooms, walk-in fireplaces, and one adjoining dressing room. The top floor (loft) 65 m2 has been converted into a bright and spacious living room with adjoining bedroom.
On the ground floor is the main entrance and utility areas; office, storage and linen room, shower room with WC and spiral stairs to grand salon.
The adjacent Guards' House has guest accommodation over two floors with 5 character bedrooms, all with shower rooms, one with extra bedroom. There is a small museum with artifacts found within chateau grounds and which retains its original stone floor, large fireplace and beams.

The old stables are today a 30 seats restaurant with bar, front and rear kitchens, utility area, storage and WC. An outside terrace runs the length of the old stables, 100 m2. Above the restaurant is a well-being studio for massage and beauty treatments. Also within the chateau grounds is the old prison and a gorgeous underground chapel.

The chateau is situated only steps from the town square. Nearby towns include charming St Loup, Parthenay, Bressuire and Thouars and chateau Orion with international art exhibitions. The area is rural, lush, and benefitting from a micro-climate with long summers and short winters. The coast, Loire valley and airports are within 90 minutes from the chateau.
