1h30 hours from Paris, in the heart of a village in the Petite Sologne region, close to the Loire, an elegant 15th century listed priory, surrounded by 1 ha of land.
Easily accessible from the A6 and A77 motorways, the property is situated in a small village on the banks of the Loire, on the south side between Gien and Sully-sur-Loire. The nearest train station is 8 km away and the train to Paris-Gare de Lyon takes 1h30. There are several food and general stores within walking or cycling distance of the property.
The ancient Gallo-Roman villa formerly known as 'Nobliacum', to which belongs the priory, remains exceptional for its architectural and environmental heritage. This is a small, formerly fortified settlement, with well-preserved remains such as the listed church with its 11th century choir and a former barn with a single nave and a 13th century arched door.
The ruins of the 11th century keep, built on a motte, offer a panoramic view of the entire village. After strolling through the narrow streets, surrounded by strong walls with towers and doors, a gothic gate, shaded by a large white magnolia tree, gives a glimpse of a lush garden, punctuated by a very old shelter near the guest house. A stone staircase leads to a terrace overlooking the village, with views of the garden on both sides of the estate. A small passageway marked by an opening in the form of an alcove provides access to the rear of the property, where a wealth of brightly coloured wild flowers and fruit trees can be enjoyed. A green space, enclosed by a stone wall, protects from prying eyes.
A barn surrounded by a lawn, as well as an old orchard, accessible by a path running along the outside of the house complete the property.
The prioryThe building was founded by the monks of St. Columba in the 9th century. The archives mention a 'monasteriolum', in other words a 'small monastery'. The priory was restored at the request of the monks in 1487. The complex comprises a single two-storey main building over a basement, shaped in form of a rectangle, with a semi-recessed staircase turret of octagonal cross-section. The walls are exposed brickwork, with dressed stone quoins and window frames. The monument is flanked by a pink brick and stone turret punctuated by half-cross windows with stone surrounds. The tower has an eight-sided slate roof. Several windows are topped by richly moulded ogee arches. A wisteria winds along the wall, revealing a window without tracery. A square block of brick lozenges adorns the bottom of a section of the wall and recalls the composition of the facade. On the first level, on the terrace, a grape vine climbs the centuries-old walls.
Ground floor
The main entrance is situated in the tower, which houses a spectacular listed spiral stone staircase. A toilet is located in a small room. The floor here and in the living room is paved with old terracotta tiles. This extensive room is lit by cross windows with seats. The bright daylight flowing through the windows highlights the French ceiling and the very old, rare wooden pillars. The living room boasts a listed monumental Gothic open fireplace typical of the Middle Ages, with a height of just over two metres under the lintel, a mantle surmounted by an elaborate frieze, stone surrounds and square pillars. Inside the hearth is an old brick baker's oven and the fireback. The main room offers a view of both sides of the house. Nearby, there is a large dining room with a fireplace. The beamed ceiling is painted blue, like the cupboards decorated with mouldings under the wooden bookshelves. A wall-mounted cupboard offering period oak storage spaces is close to a small adjoining kitchen.
First floor
The stone staircase, lit by several windows, leads to the landing which serves the two bedrooms. The first room features an old terracotta floor, …
