For Sale

Some 17 years ago, this beautiful Medieval Chateau was completely hidden under thick brambles and scrub. A complete top to bottom renovation began in 2005 and continued through to about 2019.  The work included entirely re-roofing the totality of the chateau and the secondary wing using only oak beams and traditional roof tiles; underfloor heating on the ground floor and cast iron radiators on the second, rewiring in the main chateau; installation of new hardwood double glazed windows and doors in the main Chateau and in the secondary wing; new hardwood and travertine flooring; creation of 4 bathrooms, painting and decoration and the extensive landscaping of grounds. During the course of the renovation, the highly respected local architects and tradespeople worked tirelessly to preserve the original features of this 14th century building such as the repointing of the original stone walls; the creation of a stone staircase; the period features of the 14th C guard room and tower etc whilst also making sure that a high level of modern day comfort was achieved.  The ground floor offers a light family sitting room with a log burner and corner kitchen, a bright entrance reception room, a large downstairs bedroom with en suite bath / shower room, a separate WC and a utility room. The first floor presents a mezzanine library in the original guards room, 2 large bedrooms and three bathrooms.  The second floor, originally the tower room, offers a fantastic third bedroom with double height ceiling.

A reception room and a separate office has been created inside the adjoining wing making it ideal for somone wishing to run a small business from home.  This secondary wing is ready for further development, having already been fully reroofed and fitted with hardwood double glazing. The ensemble sits in a small village in beautiful countryside, and just minutes from the pretty bastide town of Labastide d’Armagnac.

This property is ideally located, just an hour and a half from both Bordeaux and the Atlantic coast ocean. The ski Resort of Cauterets can be reached in just over 2 hours drive, and the Spanish town of San Sebastian in under 2.5 hours.
