DESCRIPTION

EXCLUSIVE TO BEAUX VILLAGES! This outstanding chateau, overlooking an idyllic river setting with stunning countryside views, is steeped in history and dates back to the 12th century. Its secluded and peaceful location, nestled within the protected regional nature park of la Brenne, is a dream for lovers of nature and wildlife. Formerly an abbey, the chateau retains many original features of both the Medieval and Renaissance periods, as well as possessing a pool, sauna, extensive outbuildings, and over 9 hectares of land.

This rare combination of waterway and grounds provide the chateau with some incredibly picturesque views, and a range of possible activities. Meanwhile, the chateau's interior boasts its own coat of arms, vaulted ceiling, Napoleonic wallpaper, exposed wooden beams, carved stone fireplaces, arrow slit, and trap door. So this is a chateau that has the marks of a true castle. And it has a history to match.

Around 1130, the chateau was gifted to Etoile Abbey, in Poitou. Later, the abbey was granted a coat of arms with the five Fleurs de Lys of King Charles V, to signify it was under Royal protection. During WWII, the chateau served as headquarters for the local resistance. It was also home to the sister of Mado Robin, the opera singer.

The back of the chateau is beautifully enhanced by the waters of the river Anglin that flow through it. The chateau's name, Aigues-Joignant, derives from the joining of two rivers, the Anglin and Benaize. The presence of the river adds to the sense of calm surrounding the home.

The terraced swimming pool overlooks the chateau and large courtyard. From there, one can wander through the lawned park, woodlands, and finally a meadow.

NB Near the chateau is a 3-bedroom, renovated, detached mill house. Backing onto the river with its own orchard and woodlands, original mill workings, and gorgeous views, this charming property is available for purchase.
