Constructed in locally mined marble, with 15 bedrooms, chapel, billiard room and swimming pool, frescos by Parisian painter Henry Perrault, and a greenhouse designed by Gustav Eiffel, you would think that Chateau d’Aubiry, the magnificent building on your right half way between Le Boulou and Céret, would have been snapped up by now.

Originally on sale for 21 million, the price has been cut by half to a mere 12 mill – but it’s still not selling.

Recently believed to have been rented to a former world ski champion, (for a bras and a jambe one would imagine), the 30 room chateau, built by Danish architect Viggo Dorph-Petersen is apparently in pretty good condition and would be suitable for a cultural centre, a museum, art gallery, a business headquarters….

Surrounded by a 7-hectare park with English gardens, greenhouses, ponds and various outhouses, the castle has  2500 m² living space including 14 main rooms, 8 rooms for the staff, a home cinema room, and a 750 m² cellar.

  1. I often passed this place but felt compelled to stop as it is quite a fascinating building fit for Royalty. I always felt a bit sad to see that it was slowly rotting away which is such a shame, it’s like a national treasure and should be preserved.
