In the Loire Valley and Normandy you will find one of the most spectacular castles in Europe, the Château Charbonnières.
This imposing French castle, built between the 15th and 16th centuries on an area of 32 hectares. With an interior area of around 10,000 square meters, distributed over its three floors, there are 20 suite-type rooms with different decorative styles, as well as a main room which bed has been made of exquisite hand-carved wood. In this dazzling French castle we can also find a music and games room, library, banquet hall, an orangery and a greenhouse.
The imposing Château Charbonnières was owned by an important list of French nobles, such as Jean Guarín in 1472 or Jean D’Oynville in 1557. During this time it was frequently visited by King Henry IV, where he was able to enjoy the Eure river, which flows through the grounds of the estate.
At the beginning of the 17th century, in 1600, the Château Charbonnières passed into the hands of Antoine and Cesar de Baux, later belonging to the Lesseville family.
In the 19th century, it was Count Chamois who established himself as the architect of the great renovation of this French castle, a clear example of the Troubadour architecture of France, giving it that Neo-Gothic style that characterizes it today.
Inside we find numerous architectural treasures, such as marvelous wooden floors, a sumptuous spiral staircase, chandeliers or an original 18th century kitchen that remains in perfect condition even after the Château Charbonnières was occupied during the Second World War by German troops.
Already in 2010, the owner of this historic French castle carried out a large and meticulous restoration, preserving the typical elements while equipping it with a modern cinema room, gym and a large conference room. In addition, the entire electrical system is changed and a new heating system is installed.
