Château un­der the ham­mer

Living France - - The Essentials -

A château that played host to Henry IV on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions is be­ing sold at auc­tion with no re­serve. Château de Char­bon­nières is lo­cated in the Parc Na­turel Ré­gional du Perche on the edge of the Loire Val­ley and was pre­vi­ously val­ued at €9 mil­lion in 2012. The 20-bed­room château was re­stored in 2010 and now has a cinema, con­fer­ence space and gym. De­spite the re­cent ren­o­va­tions, the château has kept its sense of his­tory and re­tains many pe­riod fea­tures in­clud­ing mar­quetry floors, chan­de­liers and an 18th-cen­tury kitchen. At the time of writ­ing, the bids for the château are still on­go­ing. conciergeauc­tions.com
