The 15th-Century Castle
You can dominate the deep gorges of La Dore by inhabiting this castle. It has a massive dungeon dating back to the 13th century. According to the sellers, “The house was redeveloped in the 18th century by the former prior just before the Revolution and in the 1910s, its owner, the painter Louis Retru, renovated it and enriched it with a neo-Gothic interior.” Talk about originality! If you’re a Halloween fanatic, you can finally host epic Halloween parties in the dungeon, which has a domed vaulted room. There’s also a “monumental fireplace, a painted ceiling and murals, an office of 8 m² with a wooden floor Versailles and a living room of 14 m² with monumental fireplace and a trilobed window.” This is a living piece of art, equipped with murals and a vaulted stone cellar. It’s selling for €396,000 ($420k) (Castleist).
