Buy This House: An Actual French Castle

Live like a French king (without the gout).

Where Is It? In France, by the Les Aspres mountain chain, close to the Spanish border. That means that Barcelona is under 100 miles away, if you ever want a quick and easy weekend getaway. 

The House: It’s a massive castle made of Pyrenean marble and decorated with ornate art nouveau detailing. Ooh la la.

The Selling Point: Look at it — it’s a goddamn castle!

By The Numbers: 20 (yes, 20) bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, 26,909 square feet, 1 swimming pool, 1 chapel, multiple frescos and landscaped English gardens, 1 billiard room, and a price that is, sadly, upon request.
