Loire Valley, France


Offered at E1,700,000

Perhaps the most romantic property available in the Loire Valley at the moment is the 16th-to-18th-century manor 20 minutes from Angers and an hour and a half from Paris on the TGV. The current owners have spent the last 15 years restoring the beloved château’s period features, such as terra-cotta floors, antique fireplaces, exquisite wainscoting and ceilings, stone staircase—even the barn and a superb chapel with a Baroque altarpiece. Formal French gardens set off the front façade. At the back, rose gardens with thousands of blooms and majestic sculpted yew and cypress crown 10 acres of Renaissance grounds with overwhelming charm and quietude.
