This prestigious 10 bedroom chateau in one and a half hectares of attractive grounds retains many original features and is well located, being within a short walk of the centre of a small town. The property has a heated, covered swimming pool, a charming "winter garden" or conservatory and spacious rooms arranged across three floors. The grounds include two paddocks, an orchard, a small range of outbuildings plus garaging and delightful features including an Italianate ornamental pond, or mirroir d'eau. The chateau is a comfortable family home, but one could easily envision it becoming a boutique hotel or high quality chambres d'hotes.

Located in Eure department, the chateau is convenient for road and rail links and is within walking distance of the centre of the small town of Bernay, which has grown up around an 11th century abbey and church and which still has many charming medieval features.


ABOUT THE AREA

Located in the heart of Normandy, 150 km from Paris, 55 km from Deauville and 58 km from Rouen, Bernay benefits from a privileged geographical situation and good transport links (SNCF, A28, RN138 and RN13) which further strengthens the economic and touristic attractiveness of its territory. The pretty town has developed around its abbey and its church which dates back to the 11th century and is the oldest one in Normandy.

Stroll down the streets lined with medieval half-timbered houses and take a look at numerous watermills, wash-houses, fords, water troughs and drying sheds. Awarded three flowers in the "French towns and villages in bloom" competition and as a member of the national network "Villes et Pays d'art et d'histoire" (French Towns and Regions of Art and History), Bernay is recognized for its significant heritage and the quality of its living environment.
