It might be time to get on the Eurostar and head to France, instead.
An incredible chateau that featured on Channel 4 has gone up for sale.
The property previously featured on Escape To The Chateau DIY (series 4) and has now hit the market for £408,841 (€472,500) – not far off a standard bungalow in Kent at £425,000.
Nestled in Saint-Pierre-Bellevue in Creuse, the home was built in 1895 as a hunting lodge for members of the French and Belgian nobility and more recently, it has been used as a luxury bed and breakfast.
The five-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion also boasts three reception rooms, a gated entrance and 1.6 hectares of stunning countryside.
Upon entering the home, you will be met with a vintage-style hallway, leading into the reception rooms and kitchen, which features a wood island, hanging lights, oak cabinets and a gas stove.
The dining room also comes with an impressive fireplace, wood burner and high ceiling.
The first floor is home to the master suite, facing the gardens with double doors out onto the terrace and an en-suite bathroom.
There are a further three bedrooms which feature stunning views, en-suites, and one even has a stand-alone tub.
The staircase leads to the attic, which is a currently unused space of approximately 140sq m, which could be used as an apartment.
The basement also offers plenty of space, perfect for storage or converting into more rooms.
The owners have converted the former chapel on-site into a fifth bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.
There are also a number of store rooms, two vaulted cellars, and a boiler room.
Outside, the chateau features beautiful gardens, a large vegetable garden, a terrace with a jacuzzi, a sun terrace and lots of shaded areas in which to relax and enjoy the open countryside views.
The chateau is for sale with Joanna Karatas from Leggett International.
