This one looks run down, but you can’t beat the setting! Tons of great castles and chateaux in the area, we’ll probably drive around and see what else we can find. http://www.selectionhabitat.com/agence-immobiliere/38775/immobilier/aveyron/sud-aveyron/chateau.html?page=1

I know by now my best bet will be a ginormous castle that looks like a ‘real’ castle, with luxurious old furnishings to die for. It’s got to have history and style to attract writers who love bygone eras, but enough comfort and bling to make entrepreneurs looking for a great place to start their...

I love this one; fairy tale perfect. The outside is impressive.   The inside is perfect.   But it seems to be about 5 million. That’s more than I have in mind – however, it’s just 1000 people pitching in $5000. Don’t you think we could pull it off? Property listing here.

This lovely castle is only £1.2 million. I love the facade and towers, but it was only built in 1906 so it’s lacking history. It has a more modern, austere feeling and sparse furnishing, and I really want the luxurious French decorations in the bigger chateaus. The view is amazing though.

Here’s something a little more realistic, for around 1 million USD. http://www.luxuryestate.com/p10236150-castle-for-sale-gignac The inside isn’t as grand, the ceilings not as high. The furniture will need to be replaced and the interior redesigned to make it more luxurious. But the outside is tough to beat.

The Montbrun castle near Limoges, Bordeaux and the Dordogne is one of my favorite castle properties. When I visualize myself in my castle, I’m standing up on top of the turrets, just like this. But the interior is less convincing, and the price a little ridiculous. It has history, and a lot of land (500 acres)...

I really want a castle but DAMN it’s hard to beat a glorious sea view like that… should I look for properties near a coastline? This one is in Spain. http://www.luxuryrealestate.com/residential/1810475-villa-in-calpe-urbanizacion-maryvilla-alicante-costa-blanca-calpe-alicante-spain#6

This is the insanely picturesque Château de la Motte Chandeniers.  I found the following description of its history. In the midst of a large mass of wood stands the castle of Motte-Chandeniers former fief reported to the king. From the thirteenth century the manor, then called Motte Bauçay was owned by the illustrious family Bauçay. On...

No doubt about it, this is the one I want. It’s fairy-tale perfect. I love the stone, the fireplaces, the view – the large old desk and arched windows. I don’t have a price yet but my guess is expensive, around 10million usd? More? The interesting thing is, few people would be able to use...

Here’s something that could work, for only $668,000usd. 10 bedrooms, lots of space, big open ballroom, natural surroundings. It’s not impressive enough to really seize the imagination. But it wouldn’t be so hard to fund. More details here: http://www.ab-real-estate.com/south_france_property_Limoux_Chateau_Castle_Manor-House_Country-House_1950
