A 22 million dollar, 1000 year old French castle has sold only one time in the last 500 years and now it is available. 1064 is the earliest record of this castle, it was occupied by Abbey of Saint Victor de Marseille. It somehow got into the hands of a medieval lord named Pierre de Pontevès. Through history the french royal family had lived in it back and forth. The Forbins ran the property for 500 years, which was the longest anyone had control over the castle. The castle had to have many renovations through the years but this property could be quite profitable as it is a historical piece.
“Pillivuyt is the latest in a long and illustrious string of owners to occupy the castle, which is a combination of fortress, renaissance palace, and 19th century mansion. Now, though, he’s put it on the market for 15 million euros.”
