A monumental heritage built under architecture in 1880, with a castle like appearance and a lot of character on a plot of 4800 m2. The location is surrounded by hills, situated among vineyards and sunflower fields and with view of the mountains of La Montagne Noire. The domain includes a large master home, connected by a corridor with four houses with private entrance. Close to the historical and tourist resort of Billy with supermarket and bakery (5 mins), train station St. Germain des Fosses (5 min.), Vichy (20 mins), Moulins (30 min.) Private Airport (15 min) and the airport of Clermond Ferrand (50 min.)
The property lies on the hillside, surrounded by a wall and is situated along a quiet road. It is not a real Castle but is registered as such in the tourist guides under the name of Chateaux et Belles Demeures for guided tours. It was built as an Ancien Hospice St. Marie, a luxury nursing home. The main building is completely renovated in 2006 with a feel for details and the original architecture. In the years 2006 ? 2014 the four houses have been largely refurbished. The building has many special characteristics: 1. round corners in every room. 2. all floors, windows and doors are made of oak. 3. lots of windows and doors can open so that there is a covered walkway in the summer. Extra´s indoor: Grand Salon, atelier, library, ballroom, and a chapel with stained glass windows and a cellar under the complete building. The floors in hall and kitchen have the original tiles.
The building is surrounded by the different gardens. The sculpture garden is an ideal place to be for guests. It is built in the four elements and easy to maintain. There is the big pond with fountain, a smaller pond with waterfall, a small swimming pool, fireplaces, a terrace under the grapes, a natural terrace, a small and large stage for performances, a children's playground, a playing field, an outdoor kitchen with bar and a small campground.
Behind the main building are several outbuildings with the dance hall, a covered dining and play space, a storage space for garden stuff and the sculpting atelier. These buildings have windows that open, and separate doors, and can simply be transformed into more guest houses.
The House and the sculpture garden are located on half a hectare, a perfect scale for optimal use of all aspects.
Since 8 years, there has been an intensive P.R. policy for this location and its use as a workshop centre, both in the Netherlands and in France.
The entire contents, (apart from the gallery and some personal items) the business formula, permits and if you want, the website can be acquired with the purchase.
We are looking for people with a feeling for art, culture and nature who want to continue this project in a loving and caring way.
