If living in France is the ultimate symbol of snobbery for uptown English people, you could just be able to buy your own chateau in France. The neo-gothic chateau is situated bang in the middle of Charente, a department known for its scenic beauty and its proximity to Dordogne. The chateau was built in the 19th century and has about 10,000 square feet of living space.
The property is situated in 15 acres of larger property. The graceful arches and fireplaces would make you feel like you are in the middle of a 16th century palace, which is adorned with renaissance art and architecture. However, all this luxury comes at a huge price of 2,965,000 euros.
If you can afford the hefty price tag and also love France more than your own Anglophone county, you must perhaps say goodbye to your petty apartment and book a flight to France. You would be greeted with the smell of grapes, cheese and perfume. Of course, rural France is not about just these but also about peace, solitude and calm that you would normally not find even if you paid millions of Euros.
