Castle 3

Castle Auxerre (89)

A long tree-lined driveway leads to this property near Auxerre. Elevated on a moat-formed platform, it was built in the 16th century and later renovated in the 18th century. The estate comprises formal French gardens, wooded areas with centuries-old trees, streams, and ponds. No disturbances are to be noted. The four main buildings, including a fortified pavilion, encircle an elegant square courtyard. Three of them rise above the moat. The entrance to this courtyard is through a porch with traces of a drawbridge, which has withstood various restorations and remains a beautiful relic from the 16th century. It is protected by a large wrought-iron gate. The upscale restoration of the four buildings was done in keeping with the spirit of the place (stone, marble, tapestries, wallpapers from renowned houses) and the highest standards of modern comfort (internet, heat pumps combined with gas boilers, independent room and pavilion air conditioning). The four historic residences boast spacious reception rooms with beautiful fireplaces and bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, featuring refined sanitary elements that provide luxurious independence to each guest. The south facade of the main building opens onto the French gardens, accessible via a stone bridge over the moat. In the center of this extensive garden, a pond has been converted into a pool (heated by a heat pump) with water features and accompanied by a sauna. At the edge of the woods stands a small consecrated chapel. A meticulously cultivated orchard and extensive vegetable garden, designed for complete self-sufficiency, are irrigated by the abundant spring on the estate. At the property entrance, there are outbuildings converted into four accommodations (2 apartments and 2 studios) spread across two buildings restored in the 20th century, equipped with all modern conveniences. Each unit, perfectly isolated from the castle and its pavilions, enjoys complete privacy and private gardens. At the property entrance, an elegant secured garage has been designed to accommodate eight vehicles and provide maintenance facilities (car lift and resin flooring). In its center, there is a spacious exhibition area that will delight collectors of vintage models. The meticulously maintained property is fully secured with a video surveillance system.

Castle 5

Castle Joigny (89)

A chateau with an old farm complex nestled in a refined country estate covering six hectares, an hour and a half from Paris. The fief was established in 1589 by the Harlay de Champvallon family, who won renown in the court of King Louis XIV of France. The chateau was renovated to a considerable extent later, in the eighteenth century, when it belonged to the Saint-Simon family. The estate covers around six hectares. It is tucked away in woods. A small river edges it. A little country road and a lane lined with lime trees leads up to the property’s gates. Once you have gone through the wrought-iron gates and crossed the balustrade bridge that straddles the moat, you reach a grassy courtyard. From this open space, you can admire the rectangular chateau flanked with two pavilions that are capped with mansard roofs. On the right, a complex of service outhouses, crowned with a roof lantern and clock, completes this collection of fine buildings. This built heritage is surrounded by a dry moat, gardens and woods of age-old trees. From the courtyard, a path lined with brick columns and hedges trimmed in perfectly straight lines leads to the outbuildings and, further on, to a secondary entrance gate.

Castle 6

Castle Sens (89)

Located only 1 hour 10 minutes from Paris, this magnificent 19th century waterfront mansion sits discreetly alongside its hanging English garden overlooking the Yonne valley. The natural grounds present a remarkable heritage of many hundred-year-old trees, conferring on the site a sense of majesty and serenity. Pierre de Gondi Cardinal de Retz donated the site to the Capuchins in 1608; the convent was destroyed in 1791, and a wealthy Parisian built this south-facing residence in 1838, in accordance with the architectural tastes of the day in the capital. The pure lines of its windows project us into the surrounding countryside. The harmonious interior architecture, the ground floor reception rooms, the panoramic views and the pastel colors bring every flicker of light to life. Its elevator, its bathrooms and its energy performance make it the ideal main residence or holiday home. Thanks to its two levels of reception rooms at garden level and its potential for extension, the property could also be developed for business use (tourism or otherwise). Located in Burgundy, on the outskirts of Puisaye and the Othe forest, it presents delightful rural surroundings that are perfectly conducive to relaxation. A sumptuous property that will delight all lovers of hunting, sport, nature and swimming. View overlooking the valley. 10 minutes from Roncemay Golf Club.
