If you have the deep urge to live out your French castle dreams, you’re going to want to know about this particular 18th-century property that just hit the market. Built in 1710, this villa in Western France near Curzay-sur-Vonne comes with its own private chapel.

The private chapel is only the beginning. For $4,171,821––that’s $160 per square foot––you will also get your fair share of fireplaces, a library, pool, spa, an orangery, a farm, and a killer security system. All in all, the entire 22-bedroom property measures in at 25,995 square feet of interior space. Nearly 100 acres of meadow space as well as another 148 acres of forested area surrounds the home.

Speaking of meadows, this home is the ultimate spot if you have horses in your family. The listing boasts an “outdoor arena, manège, 24 boxes, three saddleries, two treatment rooms, and open barns,” as some of the sports-minded amenities onsite. The wooded area also nestles up next to the Vonne River, for a bit of added tranquility.
