A Truly Marvelous Erection

Water tower 1

Welcome to Chateau d’eau in France

You’re not experiencing de-ja-vous. This abode was indeed featured in my last post (as a mystery location quiz, I asked readers where in Europe this weekend home is located).

Did you guess France?

Only 4% guessed France while most readers favoured Bulgaria, Croatia or Germany. I’m not surprised either, the water tower does have an Eastern Block feel to the facade. The interior though is bright and breezy. The location – on St Pardoux lake – couldn’t be more suited to a weekend home.

St Pardoux is a lake side village in central France with family friendly beaches and endless outdoor sport potential

French Legget Agent

The agent describes the water tower as a “truly magnificent erection” and I tend to agree (and who can argue with a man in a jaunty hat?)

Here’s how the agent Michael Boucnik describes Chateau d’eau.

Unique French designers take on a water tower. Truly a grand design. Would suit healthy couple looking for something different. There’s bags of potential to add your own stamp on the inside and the outside. There’s planning permission for a structure outside. Enjoy all the benefits of St. Pardoux.

The area around Lac St. Pardoux has everything for lovers of the outdoors; hiking, horse riding, mountain biking, windsurfing, canoeing, fishing and wonderful walks. There are plans to make a water park here in the future. St. Pardoux is host to an array of festivals in the summer.

There are also great cafes, bars and restaurants in the area. Limoges is only 25 minutes away with Limoges airport being just over half an hour away. A truly marvelous erection!
