Country house sales have a wide appeal, and the auction held at Château Villers-Helon, north of Paris, was no exception. The sale offered collectors the opportunity to buy a piece of the house's incredible history. Built in 1135 by a crusader knight, the château served variously as a Templar safe house; a home to French royalty and nobility; and a billet for Prussian soldiers during the Franco- Prussian war as well as for German forces in the First and Second World Wars. A wide variety of objects proved popular and 95 per cent of the lots were sold.
