In the heart of the Parc Naturel de la Brenne, this 14th-century chateau with passion, will make you discover a charming and authentic setting.

Could it be possible that a fully restored, 17-room Medieval chateau in the heart of France – near the castles of the world famous Loire Valley – is on the market for a little more than US $2.3 million? And that the chateau sits in the middle of Parc Naturel de la Brenne, a pristine French nature preserve that is home to more than 260 species of birds and other wildlife?

Well, yes.

Cradled in one of France’s 48 regional parks, this is a home for those seeking luxury, privacy and quiet.

Unlike national parks that protect mostly uninhabited and rugged zones of beauty, such as the Alps, French parc naturels preserve inhabited rural areas of historic, cultural or natural heritage. In the case of Parc Naturel de la Brenne, nature is queen, although the nearby town of Le Blanc (population 6,500) supplies the creature comforts required for modern life, including hotels, restaurants and markets.

The park’s history extends back to the late Middle Ages, when monks from nearby abbeys fished the many lakes and ponds. Today the area is protected by the French government, which means the natural state also must be preserved. This is excellent news for the neighborhood and the 14th century chateau.
