astles, historic manor houses and other extraordinary real estate are high on the list with international investors. That is because there are so few castles on offer and once they are brought back to their original splendour, they will remain a prestigious and valuable investment. This is a rare opportunity to acquire an authentic and historic property, which has been masterfully restored to its former glory. Gracious and elegant, the magnificent property is an imposing and expansive baroque château with a truly grand appearance. Dating to the 13th century, the splendid castle has undergone several rebuilds throughout its history and has existed in its current appearance since the 17th century. Grand halls, elegant salons, stunningly beautiful formal gardens and an astronomical observatory are just some of the highlights of this unique property. With palatial grandeur, the sprawling property boasts 20,000m² of opulence. Amid its glorious surroundings, the breathtaking castle sits in the middle of a 30-hectare park, complete with French-style gardens and an adjoining deer park. It comprises one of the most significant gardens in Moravia. The truly unique property is located in Holešov, a small town between Prague and Krakow. Throughout its long history, Holešov has been the property of the Moravian archbishops, the centre of an important Jewish community and the seat of several noble families. Foremost among those families were the Earls of Rottal, who started construction of the early baroque château in 1651 on the place of the original stronghold. It was finished after 1717. The classic castle is appealing not just because of its magnificence and splendour, but because of its dual function potential as a baronial home and hotel/business in one (subject to permission). This is an extraordinary architectural and historic masterpiece of incomparable scale and grandeur. Price: €8 million. CONTACT
