This Cinderella-style castle in France has just hit the market

Have you ever watched any of these old-school Disney Princess classics and found yourself thinking: I want a fucking massive castle like this? Well, we might have the property for you. A castle is for sale in France – and it looks straight out of a fairy tale.

Sure, the chateau has ten bedrooms, two bathrooms, a separate guest cottage, and a swimming pool, but the main draw is simply that it looks so magical. With its towering turrets, marble floors, high ceilings, handcrafted furnishings, and whitewashed brickwork, you can easily imagine Snow White, Cinderella, or any other Disney Princess living here.

If this place is exactly what you were looking for, you’ll be relieved to know that you won’t have to worry about spending a lot of time (and money) doing it. According to the listing, the property has been “restored to an extremely high standard and is in immaculate condition”. All 11,000 square feet have been fitted out to a high specification, including furnishings and decor. Here are some additional photos of the place.

Nestled in the middle of 16 hectares of countryside, the chateau is located in Angoulême, a commune in the south-west of France. It is about 48 km from the TGV station of Angoulême, two hours by train from Paris and only 35 minutes from Bordeaux.

So how much will a fairy tale castle cost you? Well, it certainly isn’t cheap, that’s for sure. It could be all yours for €2.3m (£1.9m, $2.6m). The castle is sold by Prestige Property and you can find out more here.

Did you see that this secluded (and rather spectacular) lighthouse in Scotland could be yours for just £140,000?
