Luxury French chateaux

Owning a French château is a fairy-tale dream for most people – high prices and publicity-shy owners ensure their exclusivity.

Nevertheless France has a reasonable number of châteaux on the property market, many of which were built in the early nineteenth century when France’s dominance and wealth rose. With a very large range of chateaux publically on the market (and some more discretely marketed) making the right choice and sorting the good from the bad can be a difficult task.

For a lot of people, buying a chateau is a case of love at first sight. However, buyers should be aware that with any investment of this kind comes the responsibility of owning a piece of French history.  Many chateaux have special architectural status which brings extra  responsibility and expense when renovating or maintaining the property. This is an important factor when making a decision. Of course , many chateau purchases these days are not just for personal use but for various kinds of business investment opportunity.

Not only do we have our local property finders on the ground in France to help sniff out and evaluate the right chateau but we also work closely with Chateaux specialists  who can advise and assist on the unique aspects of buying and owning a historic property.

Here is a small selection of chateaux currently for sale, each with their individual features and French heritage.
