One of France’s oldest wineries for sale

Chateau Goulaine in France’s Loire Valley, just outside of Nantes is for sale… and by the way, it hasn’t been on the market for 1000 years. The chateau, complete with moat, is one of the oldest operating chateaus in the world, having been established around 1000 AD. The current building was built on top of the medieval fortress in 1480, but underneath you’ll still find all original vaulted cellars. The fortress was probably built to protect Brittany from France and Henri IV and Louis XIV were all guests here.
If you are in the market, you’ll be happy to learn that there are 20 rooms for all the relatives that are sure to crawl out of the woodwork for a European holiday.
