Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe Chateau de Tennessus sits on an 8-foot-deep moat, and the medieval house comes complete with a fully funtional drawbridge. There are 27 rooms constructed around a central fortified tower, and not only does a family live there full time, but they also rent out some of the guest suites.
Set in western France, this 14th-century medieval castle is owned and lived in by the Freeland family. Not only is it their dream home, but it is also a bed-and-breakfast. The Freelands have spent 18 years renovating the place, doing everything from making necessary repairs and building new areas to modernizing some of the amenities. They even have wireless Internet access. A couple of original features they didn't change are the 7-foot-thick walls and the 76-step spiral staircase that leads to the guest suites.
