This château was built and rebuilt between 1600 and 1850. The castle was owned by a famous chemist, physicist, botanic and alchemist.
1000sqm outbuildings (orangery, horse stables - 4 horses, office shed, gatehouse ...)
Situation: roofs in order, no moisture in basements or walls - only occasionally leaky pipes, so nothing that can not be easily put in order.
It can not stay that way !!! We want to provide a stylish ambience for weddings and overnight guests. We love abandoned châteaus, but they should be habitable.
We do not want a “should look like that" style. We maintain our own style, i.e. we need someone to turn the castle into a magnificent swan - freestanding bathtubs in large rooms with views out French windows into a 26 ha park yet to be cared for.
What we need: Nice people from all over the world, that can do the tasks mentioned above with us - and please as soon as possible!!
What do we offer: everything, so that everyone feels comfortable to quickly reach a grandiose finish
