Happy Monday! Castle for sale! A renovated 12th century château in the medieval village of Villeneuve, in Aveyron, France!

Sometimes I cannot believe that you can buy a whole actual castle for less than the price of an average suburban home. This chateau feels like it’s got one foot in the medieval era and one foot in modern day, and I love it. Imagine living surrounded by stone initially constructed in the 1100s! What a treat for the imagination!

From the listing on Selection Habitat:

Exclusive: Sélection Habitat is pleased to present this renovated 12th century chateau located in the heart of a medieval village in the Aveyron department. The chateau has many original features, including a stone spiral staircase, exposed beams, mullioned windows and oak floors. However, unlike many chateaux, the property was renovated for modern living around the year 2000, so it has large double-glazed windows, a modern kitchen and even a swimming pool, making it an ideal opportunity for a second home. The living spaces include: First floor: Large 40 m² living room, large kitchen with 30 m² dining table which opens onto a private 40 m² terrace with views of the village and the surrounding countryside. Second floor: A large bedroom of 40m², a small hallway leading to a second bedroom of 20m², a small bathroom with WC. Third floor: A large attic offering 35 m² of potential space for an additional bedroom and a shower room. Ground floor: Under the living room on the mezzanine there is a storage room of 40 m² and under the terrace there is an additional space of 40 m². Finally, there is a vaulted cellar of 40m². A further small barn of around 40m² on two floors is currently included in the property for additional storage space, if required. The castle has not been inhabited for the past 10 years and therefore needs some maintenance to bring it up to modern standards. The swimming pool needs a new coating and a connection to the main sewer is also necessary. A perfect opportunity for someone looking to be part of the history of the village
