An Elegant & Quintessentially French Château

5/6 bed Château with Bell Tower; Majestic Tree Lined Entrance; 3.4 HA Gardens with Pool


This elegant and quintessentially French Château is a rare find in this region. Dating back to the early nineteenth century, the classic architecture has a wonderful central fronton sympathetically supported by its symmetrical façade.  Framing the main façade is a wing surmounted by a working bell tower to the west and a square tower to the east.  The Château sits at the end of a long and majestic entrance of centenarian oak trees within its 3.4 hectares (8.2 acres) of immaculately landscaped gardens.  The Estate also includes a large triple car garage; an enclosed courtyard with a substantial and beautifully renovated barn (which has served as a wedding reception venue); a 5x10m swimming pool and a charming pool house with summer kitchen.    

The current owners have significantly upgraded the property to include the restoration of the ground floor using specialist artisans, a new septic system; the installation of a protective drainage system around the periphery of the building and extensive landscaping to the grounds.  The Chateau now offers a perfect retreat for an International owner searching peace of mind.

This enormously appealing Château with its elegant proportions and beautifully light rooms is ideally situated just 25 minutes from the beautiful historic city of Pau; one hour from the cosmopolitan coast resort of Biarritz and within one hours drive of the ski slopes of the Pyrenees mountans; this chateau is ideally placed to suit either a main residence or a holiday home with summer and winter activities close by.  Pau airport 15 minutes (with 10 daily flights to Paris); Lourdes / Tarbes airport 30 minutes; Biarritz airport one hour and Toulouse & Bordeaux airports under 2 hours drive. This elegant Château is rare on the market and French Character Homes is delighted to be marketing it.
