When you were a child, did you ever dream of living in a castle? Whether it was being a princess who had been swept off her feet by Prince Charming or even a prince fighting off incoming troops and throwing them into a moat that surrounded your spacious castle? Well this dream will come true for one lucky buyer. Located 30 miles from Paris in Vigny, France you will find the Château de Vigny. It was built in 1504 by architect Charles Cazot. He designed this for French cardinal Georges d’Ambroise. This beautiful castle is now for sale and it can be yours for a mere $5.69 million.
This castle was built in 1504 for French cardinal Georges d’Ambroise.
It’s located only 30 miles from Paris, giving you the convenience of a big city but giving you the privacy that a castle tends to offer.
It’s located in Vigny, France and is situated across from the town hall.
The castle was featured in Rihanna’s 2010 music video for “Te Amo”. In the video, she is seen dancing with supermodel Laetitia Casta while outfited in a PVC bondage outfit.
The castle has six different wings, along with an orangery, stables, two separate greenhouses, and two bridges.
It has six different towers, each containing a battlement.
It also features salons that have carved wooden ceilings that display elaborate detail.
The castle boasts two separate outbuildings. One contains a professional kitchen, while the other contains a pastry laboratory.
This beautiful castle is over 37,000 square feet and is situated on over 44 acres!
Because it was built in 1504, there were parts of the castle that were run-down. In 1867, it underwent a renovation where a chapel and a dungeon square were added.
Château de Vigny was listed as a historic monument in 1984 and is in amazing condition today.
The huge front doors open into a massive foyer with amazing architectural detail.
Look at the amazing detail with all of the built in shelves, the hand-carved ceilings, and the hard wood floor.
Could you imagine snuggling up in front of the fire on a cold, snowy night looking out the large windows at your expansive property?
This large room can be used as a dining room, although you may need to have a custom dining room table built in order to accommodate the space.
There was so much attention to detail put into this castle when it was built and renovated. It’s very impressive.
If you love to cook, this is the most amazing dream kitchen you could ever think of! This is worth the cost of the castle alone!
The grounds are beautiful, full of lush greenery, and the castle is even surrounded by a moat. ***Crocodiles Not Included
I would just want to take a tour of the castle without purchasing it. It looks beautiful both inside and out.
