Income Producing 23 bedroom House for sale with countryside view in Tours, Centre

13,300,000 EUR
11,438,000 GBP 14,231,000 USD
Absolutely exceptional, fully restored 23 bedroom historical and luxurious French Chateau with separate guest house and Chapel, nestling in 7 hectares of beautiful landscaped gardens with expansive pool, equestrian facilities and woodland, while enjoying far reaching countryside views from its peaceful and private location near Tours.

This exquisite property was built in a small village in central France, at the bottom of a valley and beside a stream. Ideally situated centrally in the Loire Valley, a 5 minute drive from a main Autoroute junction and local amenities yet enjoying a secluded quiet location.

The city of Tours and its international airport is 40km away. This beautiful chateau, set in 17 acres of wooded parkland, was built in the 15th century on the foundations of a 13th-century fortress. It underwent a complete restoration in 2017 to become a 1,307m2,4-star luxury hotel with 23 bedrooms, a semi-gastronomic restaurant, reception rooms, spa and wellness areas as well as seminar and meeting rooms.

The ground floor of the chateau offers an entrance hall, lobby with reception, WCs and lift to the upper floors. There is a restaurant, professional kitchens, wine cellar, technical rooms and storerooms.

An impressive staircase leads from the bar/living room to the upper floors with a lift, and a second fire/staff staircase also serves all floors.

The semi-gastronomic restaurant, inaugurated in 2017, is housed in a superb veranda added to the chateau's facade in 2016. Views over the lawns, rose gardens and river valley provide a soothing setting in which to relax and enjoy a meal.

Rooms range from "Classique" to "Suites" with intermediate "Charme" rooms, with nightly rates varying accordingly.

A bar and living room, exhibition/concert room and a guest room with en-suite bathroom, are on the first floor.

On the second floor are 9 bedrooms with private bathrooms and views of the garden.

Eight further guest rooms with en suite bathrooms and views of the garden, are on the third floor.

On the fourth floor is a large double bedroom and en-suite bathroom in the tower.

Management offices are on the fifth floor.

In the basement is a storage area, lift access and machinery, boiler/heating system and 2 wine cellars/storage rooms.

The original main outbuilding (approximately 300 m2) has been converted and now offers a large seminar/conference room with entrance hall, cloakroom and kitchenette, next to the wellness sauna and fitness room with separate entrance hall and access to the pool terrace, shower room and WC.

Three additional guest rooms with PRM access are located on the ground floor of this building, with the possibility of a further 6 rooms on the first floor (to be created) with established staircases leading to the entrance hall.

The original chapel, which has not been restored but is in relatively good condition, is located next to the chateau and offers opportunities for additional activities (weddings, etc. ).

The "gate house" of 138m2 on 2 floors has a living room, kitchen and WC on the ground floor, 3 bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor. It is currently used by the site's caretaker and located near the main gate, providing an additional level of security to the site.

In the lower pasture there is a large stable block with 12 stalls, office, tack room and feed shop. In addition, there are covered garages, workshops and various shops (including a bike shed) on site.

With a little over 17 acres of formal park and woodland, bordered by a stream this chateau enjoys a quiet and private setting.

With a recent previous link to the equestrian world there are lower and upper paddocks offering grazing and stabling for a number of horses (another business opportunity to be explored perhaps), along with paths and hacks through the woodland and access to local further reaching paths. The views from the restaurant fall over the gardens and rose maze.

The 10 x 5m swimming pool and surrounding sun terrace are sheltered behind the wellbeing lodge and also enjoy views over the river valley.

Parking areas and pathed walkways complete this luxury property.

Buying a Property in France

1. Signing the Agreement (Compris)

On finding a property you wish to purchase you will need to negotiate the terms, price and conditions of the sale with the owner.

The next step, once you are in agreement, is to sign the preliminary contract (Compromis de Vente). This is a legal document and after ten days will be binding on both parties. Rules change frequently in France and it is best to consult with your notary about when this period starts. Generally the compris will be signed in France with the Agent.

Variants can be included in the compris, for example an Acte (clause) can be added if the name or names to go on the title deed have not been finalised. If a mortgage will be required to purchase the property, the details for this, including the name of the mortgage company, must be on the compris.

2. Paying the Deposit

Generally the deposit will be 10% of the agreed purchase price. This will normally be paid to the notaire. There are exceptions to this, if the agent holds a carte professionelle, is bonded and fully registered then you may pay them, but do not hand over the deposit to anyone else. If for some reason the purchase does not go through, for example, if you write to the notaire and the agent that you do not wish to go continue with the purchase before the contract is binding (within seven days of signing the compris), then your deposit would be repaid. This would also apply if a condition had not been met, or the mayor or S.A.F.E.R. (a government agency that has the right of first purchase on most rural property that comes onto the market in France) could oblige the purchaser to give way. If you decide after the seven days 'cooling off' period that you do not wish to complete the purchase and pull out of the sale you would lose your deposit. If however the vendor pulls out of the sale then you will receive your deposit back plus the same amount from the vendor.

3. On Completion

Generally it will take around two or three months to complete the purchase.

During this time the balance of the purchase money must be paid into the account of the notaire, this must be done well ahead of the completion date. The notaire will prepare the documents, check that the deed of sale (Acte de Vente) is in order and have the legal title ready to be signed over. It is possible to have someone sign on your behalf if you give them power of attorney. An interpreter may be of use at this point if your French is not very good and many Notaires will suggest (or insist) that an interpreter is with you.
