A genuine fortress, Haute-Vienne

A genuine fortress

In Dournazac, 40 km from Limoges, the 12th- and 15th-century Montbrun castle is a listed monument. “This is an impeccably restored property, one of just four such fortified castles in France from that period,” the Mercure Limousin agency stresses. It features an elevator, a pool room, a library, a screening room, a recording studio, a conference room and a chapel. Vintage elements have been retained. A large Master suite comes with a four-poster bed, a jacuzzi and a sauna. Two children rooms, four guest rooms and a secret room (with a hidden entrance, a kitchen and a bar) round out the interior. A heliport stands at the heart of a 165-ha estate with forests, lakes and moors.
