Castle Vichy (03)

A 16th & 19th century chateau, with outbuildings and a caretaker’s cottage, amidst 3 ha of parklands just 30 minutes from Vichy.
In the midst of the French department of Allier, outside a small, quiet village, with all shops and amenities 8 km away. 20 km from Vichy, 35 km from Moulins, 60 km from Clermont-Ferrand and 20 km from the A71 motorway slip roads.
Dominating the property, this rectangular chateau is built with a small north wing set at right angles. The main facade faces south-east. The outbuildings are laid out behind the property, against the wall of the old neighbouring farm. A comfortable caretaker’s cottage marks the entrance to the property. Predominantly wooded, the 3 ha of enclosed parklands slope down to the river, bordering the property for close to 300 m.
The chateauThis chateau spans two levels over cellars and under attic space. The main facade, overlooking the parklands, features 17 openings. A door on the garden side opens on to a porch, with a flight of steps going down to the parklands. The oldest section, the west wing, still features Renaissance window moulding. In addition to the north wing set at right angles, the courtyard facade features a protruding vestibule, housing the entrance door in the centre of the facade. The roof is covered with small flat tiles, known as Bourbon tiles.
Ground floor
The ground floor can be accessed either via the kitchen or via the main entrance, concealed by a semi-circular vestibule, protruding from the chateau and leading to a corridor, giving access to the rooms. A vast, rustic dining room has a fireplace and is paved with Volvic stone. An adjoining fitted kitchen leads to a laundry room and a toilet. The main dining room in the centre of the building has a fireplace and is paved with Volvic stone, whilst a study, a large lounge and a games room all have fern-leaf pattern parquet flooring. Double doors open on to a porch, paved with Volvic stone, which overlooks the parklands.
First floor
A wooden stairway goes upstairs where a corridor gives access to five bedrooms, all fitted with a wardrobe. Two bedrooms have their own bathroom and the three others have shower rooms. One room is laid out as a study. The large windows in the various rooms let in copious amounts of light.
Second floor
This floor comprises two bedrooms with shower rooms and wardrobes. Another two rooms await conversion. There is also an attic space, which could be transformed into living rooms, and a separate toilet.
Cellar
Vast vaulted cellars take up the basement under the chateau. They can be reached from the outside via a stairway housed at the end of the south wing.
The parklands
One third of these parklands are composed of grassy meadows, planted with fruit and ornamental trees. The other two thirds of the surface area are planted with woods, crisscrossed with alleyways that curve gently down towards the river.
Carport
A lock-up, 2-car garage and a carport able to take at least another two cars.
Workhouse
Two old houses are used for workshop and storage purposes.
Wood store
A large lean-to acts as a woodshed.
Caretaker’s accommodation
A recent house, constructed in the 1970’s, stands at the entrance to the property, surrounded by its own garden. This is the so-called caretaker’s cottage. Comprising a basement, an upstairs and three bedrooms, it is currently subject to a rental lease.
