The staggering Château Saint-Elix, which you can admire in the following gallery, used to be owned by the Mistress of King Louis XIV, Madame de Montespan. The famous 16th century mansion has reportedly been a centerpiece of French history since the year 1529.
Located near Toulouse, the palatial construction was recently listed for sale at around $38 million by Christie’s International Real Estate. It has undergone complete renovation, now being able to provide 2,880 square meters of interior living space spread across five levels. Topping a gorgeously trimmed private park, Château Saint-Elix encompasses a total of 10 bedrooms alongside huge marble and stone fireplaces, wood paneling, a 5-star Hotel, top-level restaurant, vineyard in the Orangerie, private 9-hole golf course behind the castle, stables, coffered ceilings, ornate moldings and superbly trimmed formal gardens.
Of course, Château Saint-Elix, or, as the French call it, the Saint-Élix-le-Château, is currently listed by the French Ministry of Culture as historical monument. It is a genuinely exceptional investment target for everybody, found in an area with already great economic potential. The possibilities are endless.
