French Château Captivates the European Market

Real estate in Europe has officially outdone itself. Located in the Cognac region of the whimsical country, a 16th-century Château in Charente, France is up for sale – and taking bids. Charente, made famous for being the birthplace of the infamous brandy, boasts a storybook atmosphere and medieval ambiance.

Flanked by towers and white shudders, the home was originally owned by Louis XIV and was most recently renovated in 2003. The rectangular manor sits on 43 acres of land and includes a caretaker’s cottage, stables, man-made lake and a staff apartment that could double as guest lodging. And while the insides are a site to behold all on their own, it’s the grounds that really steal the show, including a river and an endless forest of greenery.

The estate is up for grabs starting at €2,940,000.
