Chateau overview - owner's description

Located in the Auvergne-Limousin region, Chateau de Mouney is the family residence of an international artist, dating back to the C17/18th, that sits on the edge of the Foret de Drouille.

Isolated and calm, the chateau offers 50km of uninterrupted views to the volcanic range of the Puy de Dome, surrounded by lakes, forests and country lanes.

The chateau has large rooms, high ceilings and fireplaces. Oak flooring and original cornicing can be seen throughout. The interior is designed to an exceptional standard with designer furniture throughout. The highlight is the spacious and well appointed kitchen, ideal to prepare delicious meals using fresh local ingredients,

Outside there are landscaped, orchard, herb, vegetable and rose gardens. There is also an outdoor dining area under the pergola with a marble table and stone barbecue. The heated swimming pool comes with pool house and is fenced with an electric safety cover.
This is the perfect place for those who seek total peace and quietness, spending long-hours out hiking, biking or fishing, away from the crowds and tourist attractions.
The closest village is a 5 -minute drive away, a truly authentic french little gem! There are restaurants within a driving distance too, where you can taste a very simple but delicious local cuisine.
If you are into wine and historical castles, keep in mind that the Loire Valley is a few hours drive away!
