Château de Montrozier

On the way into Rodez there is a wonderful château.  It is very small and privately owned.  Jacques says that his great-great grandparents are said to have worked there.  So of course I wanted to see the château.  We didn’t come by the correct road but went into the village the back way.  In fact, it was so far the back way, that our car didn’t fit.  Instead I took a few pictures of what I thought was really charming.

Apparently the chateau is for sale!  It can be yours for 2 572 500 €  or  $4,087,680.

( There are condos in San Francisco and New York for the same price.  So lets see, a chateau or a condo? New York or Rodez…?) This is the listing:

This 15th century chateau in an elevated setting was the Counts of Rodez’s preferred residence. The Renaissance main building with towers and a rectangular keep with its machicolation offers over 8,600 sq. ft. of living space in 22 rooms including a reception room, library and 2 ceremonial bedrooms. With a caretaker’s cottage, a chapel and outbuilding, it is set in lovely grounds with an enclosed garden, 22 acres of meadows and 40 acres of woodland.
