This entirely renovated medieval stone castle is resting in the hillside above Chateauneuf and Valbonne. France. This postcard perfect castle is located in the charming 18th century village of Bar sur Loup, known as the “town of orange trees.” The current owner of this castle must sell as he is moving to Hong Kong. Just five years ago, he found the property in terrible shape, fell in love with it, and painstakingly restored virtually every square inch. The 6,674 square foot (620 square meters) castle features five bedroom suites with dressing rooms, several living rooms with fireplaces, large family kitchen and dining area, a study, hobby room, several guest cloak rooms and wine cellar. The owner even reclaimed materials from another French chateau to be sure that no “foreign” or inappropriate materials interfered with the building’s integrity. Most appealing, in particular, are the pool and pool house with a summer kitchen and terraces. There is also a caretaker’s cottage and parking for ten cars. The original castle dates back to the early 18th century but its gardens surrounded by olive and fruit trees, rose bushes, and jasmine appear to be much older.
