If a cer­tain TV show has got you Googling for a bud­get château to do up then here is a gar­gan­tuan project to get stuck into. This château on the out­skirts of de­sir­able St-jean d’angély in Char­ente-mar­itime has 27 bed­rooms and var­i­ous an­nexes and out­build­ings amount­ing to 3,000m2 of po­ten­tial liv­ing space, all set in 15 hectares of land. Built in 1850 from stone and slate, the three-storey château and its var­i­ous ex­ten­sions have been used in re­cent times as a chil­dren’s home and of­fices. Much of the in­te­rior has the look of an in­sti­tu­tion from the 1980s, but there are plenty of stun­ning orig­i­nal fea­tures too, not least the château’s hand­some façade.

At­trac­tive St-jean d’angély with its abbey, half-tim­bered houses, shops and restau­rants is just a few min­utes’ drive away while the At­lantic coast, in­clud­ing the his­toric port of La Rochelle, can be reached in un­der an hour.

The four-day auc­tion starts at mid­day on Oc­to­ber 22 with a start­ing price of €300,000. More de­tails at ago­ra­s­
