Chateau-hotel to buy near Puy du Fou

We propose to acquire a few minutes from the town of Cholet, in Maine-et-Loire, this beautiful 19th century castle on a property of approximately 5 hectares of woods and park (Possibility to acquire additional acres!) .
A hotel building par excellence, the castle benefits from a quality geographical location.

The very dynamic city of Cholet offers all shops and treatments but also access to the TGV and the motorway. You easily join in 1h Nantes (with its airport) and Angers. The castle also benefits from the proximity of PUY DU FOU just 20 minutes away.
The castle
A welcome alleyway through the wood leads to the heart of the property.
The imposing building stands on three floors without counting the complete basement and attic partly done up.
It is covered by a slate roof partly redone in 2000.
Built in the nineteenth century, with granite stone for the base and stone tufa for framing, the castle has been relatively well preserved thanks to important restoration work.
The living area extends over approximately 1000m², ideal for a hotel business.

The access of the rooms on the ground floor is by a large corridor north of the Castle. This gallery is also one of two entrance halls, preceded by a magnificent granite stone staircase. The reception rooms are large and impressive with their 5m high ceilings, their large openings, their remarkable work of woodwork, their floors and their French polychrome ceiling.
Thus you will find a large dining room, two seminar rooms, a small lounge, a library and a beautiful circular chapel.

The two floors, served by the central staircase and two spiral staircases, offer 13 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms.
You will also find on the first level a private apartment with a kitchen, a living room, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The attic is partly converted into a studio.
The basement is complete. It houses a beautiful dance hall and a bar area. Privileged space for the organization of weddings or family celebrations.
The old kitchen of the castle has been transformed into a professional kitchen to the standards with its washing up area.
Cellars and sheds make up the rest of the basement.

The outbuildings.
A squash room had been built a few years ago in front of the castle. This one is not in very good condition and deserves to be removed.

The park
The property extends over approximately 5 hectares of woods, park and a small pond.
A heated and secure swimming pool decorates the whole.
It is possible to acquire several additional hectares.

Our idea.
Ideal property for an event activity and luxury hotel accommodation!
The castle deserves some work but all is in good condition and standards.
