Property Description

In the peaceful valley of the Auvézère, the ancient land of the Templars is inscribed this fortified castle of the 15th century, having preserved very beautiful architectural elements, including a square tower crowned with machicolations. This family property currently comprises 200 sq.m fitted out and a part to accommodate (about 300 sq.m additional); it belonged to Jeanne d'Albret, mother of Henri IV, who stayed there. A fortified castle of a reasonable size extended by a building body of the eighteenth-century empire era.

The renovated part, mainly on the 1st floor, consists of a large living room, a dining room, a smoking room, 2 bedrooms, 1 with its private bathroom, and another bathroom; on the 2nd floor, a 3rd bedroom. On the ground floor is an entrance with a stone staircase and a renovated guard room with a monumental fireplace. There remains to finish on the ground floor a large living room, a kitchen, and a small living room. as well as on the 2nd floor of the square tower a beautiful room (77 sq.m) under a structure in cathedral style, with access to an incredible walkway within the machicolations. A vaulted cellar on clay is accessible from the outside by a stone staircase. As outbuildings, a beautiful stone barn, and a round dovecote tower on 2 levels (escape keep with condemned underground).

The land is divided into three parts: a park of about 3.600 sq.m, enclosed by stone walls of a height of 3m, with secular trees and an old well. This park is accessible by three different wooden gates. One leads to an orchard of about 4.000 sq.m, then a wooded part and meadow of about 6.400 sq.m.

This rare ensemble has retained all its authenticity. It is well located and quiet but close to all amenities (5 min. from Cubjac, 25 min. from Périgueux, access A89 nearby), and many tourist sites.
