This historic Chateau, with origins dating back to the thirteenth century, has striking architectural appeal, exquisite grounds and a protected elevated site on the edge of its village with views stretching across the Gave d’Oloron to the Pyrenees Mountains. Situated just 3km from Oloron-Sainte-Marie, the chateau served as the summer retreat for local Bishops for over 600 years. The Chateau was sadly abandoned and consequently suffered several years of gentle decline before it was ‘rescued’ by its current Dutch owners some 10 years ago. The current owners have over-seen the extensive professional renovations which have rejuvenated this historic building to today’s irreproachable International standard.

The professional renovations included the complete re-roofing of the Chateau and its dependences; full re-wiring and re-plumbing; high grade installations including water pressure pumps; replacement double glazed hardwood windows and shutters; new high spec kitchens and bathrooms; the installation of a 16 x 6m heated swimming pool with extensive landscaping of the grounds. In addition, the existing dependences have been renovated to create two guest annexes with a total of eight en-suite bedrooms; a conference room with facilities for up to 30 persons; a gymnasium with a treatment room and a former Orangerie serving as a large artist studio with the potential to create additional accommodation. The ensemble has the advantage of being connected to mains gaz and mains sewage.

Accessed via its magnificent 13C stone gateway, the Chateau sits at the end of its gravel driveway bordering its irreproachably maintained grounds. The ground floor of the Chateau offers an office, two salons, a large dining room and a professional kitchen all of which are light well-proportioned rooms. The second and third floors offer a total of 9 bedrooms (8 of which are en-suite), a home cinema and a billiard room. The third floor offers an immense space for further accommodation, if required.

This historic Chateau, which is situated just 3km from its attractive neighbouring town of Oloron-Sainte-Marie, offering all necessary amenities. The historic city of Pau can be reached in 35 minutes and its airport within 50 minutes. International airports : Toulouse & Bordeaux airports 2hrs 30 mins ; Biarritz airport 1 hour ; private airfield locally at Oloron Sainte Marie and TGV for Paris at Orthez 50 mins away.
