Eure (27) A magnificent 17th century chateau steeped in history.
Once occupied by King Henri IV of France, this remarkable 17th century property has across the decades and centuries been home to some of the most illustrious families from home and abroad. During the 20th century the property was owned by Consuelo Vanderbilt who, through her marriage in 1895 to Charles Spencer-Churchill had gained the title of Duchess of Marlborough. Although the couple were to separate some years later, she nonetheless maintained ties with her favourite Churchill relatives and notably undoubtedly the most famous of all, Winston, who was a frequent visitor to the chateau during the 20’s and 30’s. Interestingly it was here that he was to complete his last painting before the outbreak of World War II. Surrounded by moats and set in a total of some 100 hectares with beautiful gardens featuring no less than 16 sculptures and an orangery, the chateau boasts magnificent reception rooms and includes a dozen bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Outbuildings include a farmhouse, a caretaker’s house, stables and a total of 18 further annexes. The gardens also feature a croquet lawn, a tennis court, a basketball court and a swimming pool with a pool house. This prestigious property is in a magnificent location on the edge of a state forest, and less than 75 km from Paris.

Center of France

Sologne is located in the Center region, and extends itself from the Loire to one of its tributaries, the Cher. Mainly known for its ponds (covering approximately 12 000 hectares, or 2% of the territory) and its forests, Sologne has a strong tradition of fishing and hunting—activities which are most often privatized.
