Property Overview

FCH642

This historical ensemble of buildings has a long and interesting history, having survived the time from the War of the Crusades to present day. Engraved into one particular stone is the year 1080 with a Knight’s Cross, evidence surely of the presence of the European Christians passing through during their voyage to regain the Holy Lands. The Chateau’s Coat of Arms, as seen in the stain glass window on the main staircase, under its stone vaulted ceilings, belongs to the Peyrer family, who were confidants and musketeers to the king. Jean-Armand du Peyrer, the Comte de Trèville, was fictionalized under the name Monsieur de Trèville in Alexandre Dumas’s novel The Three Musketeers. The Peyrer family’s second home, displaying the same family crest, can be found opposite the Chateau de Pau. The stone Renaissance mullion windows in this chateau replicate the ones seen in the Chateau de Pau, which was birthplace to Henri IV, who became King of France in 1589.

The estate comprises of the 10 bedroom Chateau; a three bedroom adjoining Apartment; a two bedroom walled garden Cottage and a former Stable block set within two hectares of parkland and woods, bordering a river.

This Chateau has a wealth of period features.  In addition to its stone vaulted ceilings and mullion windows, there are oak panelled rooms with period oak floors and internal window shutters; period marble fireplaces with classic Fleur de Lys wrought iron back plates; and the original stone slab flooring in the entrance hallway. The chateau is above all, a family home but offers enormous potential as a commercial venue to host seminars, weddings or any business where additional accommodation is required.

The Chateau is located 25 minutes west of Pau.  Pau airport 30 minutes; Tarbes / Lourdes airport 45 minutes; Biarritz airport 45 minutes; Toulouse airport 2 hours.

Details of additional land and outbuildings are available upon request.
