When looking to buy something that screams status many people are flocking to France to buy castles and chateaus. There are a surprising number available and people love to own not only a piece of history but also something that is so grand. There are ones available from eight bedrooms to forty rooms. They are all in the millions of dollars range so the clients who can afford them are pretty limited, and there seem to be enough to go around.
