Château La Chassagne

Would you like to own a castle? This lovely ginormous little castle just outside of Paris is for sale, for a mere 10.5 million euros. (about $15.5 million) It is called the Château La Chassagne, and was built in 1830.
It was converted into a hotel/resort and updated with all of the amenities in 1991, so there's no fear about not living in great comfort. The rooms are typically European, small and sparsely furnished, but still lovely. My guess is those are original oils above the beds.

The dining room seems to be nice enough, if a little dark.

There is a bistro area out back, that looks absolutely lovely. Oh, and did I mention that this castle includes a vineyard? Can't you just see yourself relaxing on the patio, savoring a glass of your very own wine?

Of course the castle isn't the only building on the grounds. If you prefer not to make the long drive into town for church, why not attend mass at your very own private chapel?

There is space for up to 22 of your closest friends, who are welcome to fly in on their private planes. They, of course, can land on your private airstrip.

There will be plenty for them to do while they stay with you. There is 100 acres on this property, and your guests can choose from hunting on the game reserve, either walking or on horseback. Additionally, they can lounge by one of the two heated pools, or destress in the sauna.

Perhaps your guests will be up for a game of tennis, or if they would like to take it easier, perhaps an enormous chess game?

And before you think that you'll spend your life cleaning and maintaining this huge home, there are full servant's quarters to house the staff you'll need for a castle like this.

So what do you think? Want to move to France with me?

I'm linking this up to Julia's Hooked on Fridays, and Melissa's Beautiful Fridays, because who doesn't love an awesome castle?

I'd move there in a second. The chapel made me laugh out loud. But, the patio... and a vineyard? If only I were independently wealthy.

What a delightful place to spend a holiday...and to be flown in on the private jet no less! Lovely.

Maybe all us bloggers should buy it together. It can be run as a hotel to fill the rooms when us owners aren't there!

Oh yes, I'd be there in a flash if I had the money! A French Chateau... divine.

Private vineyard and runway for a jet. My, my. I'd say, let's all chip in and buy it ;-)
