Our house with The X Factor

Take a tour of the enchanting French château featured on the show!


This traditional French château in the heart of the Loire Valley was the dramatic backdrop for the ‘Overs’ category to battle it out for a place in The X Factor live shows.


Simon Cowell stayed in the luxury 16-room property over two nights with guest judge One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson, as well as contestants from the ‘Overs’ category.

The château is not just for the stars, however – it’s available to rent all year round on HomeAway.


The stunning Château de Moh, which overlooks the River Loire, dates back to the 15th Century and was originally the summer residence of the Bishops of Tours. The property was uninhabited for years before it was refurbished, and locals still tell stories of ghosts seen wandering parts of the property, in particular The Tower, where closed doors are said to open mysteriously.

A host of music icons who have previously stayed in the property include Mick Jagger and ACDC’s Brian Johnson.


The château features a pool house, spa, vast gardens, underground chambers, orchards, 11 rental apartments, houses and suites in the grounds of the building, a wall that surrounds the château, and a moat, which went to ruin in the 15th Century.
