General Description

Magnificent Loire Valley chateau with heated pool - Built in the late 1800s at the heart of the Vienne department, among extensive century-old woodland and splendid landscaped gardens, this is an enchanting fairy tale castle furnished with exquisite taste, just a short walk from the small village of Lencloitre and within easy access of Poitiers’ airport and the Loire Valley. As you approach the gate of the property flanked by two turrets, you know you are about to enter a magical world.
