The 12th-century Château de Montbrun in the commune of Dournazac in the Haute-vienne department, has been restored to a high standard, and boasts 17 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms. Lying in a deep valley, it comes with 165 hectares of land, a golf course, five lakes and a heliport.
Most interestingly, it is rumoured to be where Richard the Lionheart passed away in 1199 after being wounded at the siege of the nearby castle of Chalus-chabrol. According to some accounts, Richard was hit in his left shoulder by a crossbow close to his neck, the wound became gangrenous and he died 12 days later from blood poisoning.
Apparently, in 1424 the castle was also besieged on the orders of the French king Charles VII because the castle lord remained loyal to Henry VI of England. leggettprestige.com
