About the property

Mill house on lakeside situation in parkland

This is the place to be if you wish to have a break away from all distractions of the city and prefer to be surrounded by waterfalls, woods, extensive gardens and yet close to a large selection of shops and interesting attractions. Fishing, boating, stargazing, badmington, sunbathing, castle viewing and cycling are just some of the activities which are at the front door. Mega for kids and parents!

About The Owner

Linked in provides details


The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 1992

Why The Owner chose Nanthiat

I tried Canada, USA, then all the other countries in the northern hemisphere across Asia, through Turkey, India, Thailand, China and Japan to find a serious place to invest my millions, somewhere stable, somewhere with culture, and most importantly a healthy climate and after twenty years of searching decided that this property was better in all respects than ANYONE (including the Emperor of Japan) else could offer.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Stars (for serious astronomers), wildlife (protected species), fish (the French take fishing seriously), cultural artifacts (more castles in this department, than in the whole of the rest France together), food (the French come to this area of the Dordogne for the excellent variety and quality of food), the silence (frightening for city dwellers who have never experienced zero noise pollution) and most importantly - the air. The surrounding forest and waterfall create ionised air which surpasses the quality of sea or mountain levels. Just being here makes you healthy.

We inspected the property on arrival and decided not to risk our health and safety by statying so we left immediatly to check in at a local hotel.

This property gets a star only because the review form does not allow zero.
