Property Description

This elegant and quintessentially French Château is an exceptional find in this region. The beautiful historic city of Pau with its International school can be reached in 20 minutes and its airport is a mere 15 minutes’ drive away.

Dating back to the early nineteenth century, the classic architecture boasts 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 avenue of ancient oaks, residing in the centre of 7.7 hectares (circa 17acres) of immaculate grounds.

This enormously appealing chateau, with its imposing reception rooms and large principal bedrooms makes it ideal for entertaining, while its over 450m² is sufficiently manageable to allow it to be used as a family home or secondary residence. Since their ownership in 2013, the proprietors have significantly upgraded the château, employing specialist artisans, and the property now offers a perfect retreat for an owner searching peace of mind.

The ensemble includes the chateau; a large open-fronted garage; a substantial barn (234 m2) set within its own partially walled garden complete with a separate entrance; a 5x10m swimming pool and a sympathetically built pool-house with picon tiled roof. Two working wells and a spring complete this stunning property.

The immediate grounds of 3.4 hectares have been extensively landscaped to create a perfect balance of gardens, meadows and woodlands. The formal gardens, amongst the prettiest in Bearn, include numerous water features; rose ladened pergolas; brimming flower beds and specimen trees. Apples, pears, figs, pomegranates, and feijoas add to the bounty. A large, fenced field of 4.3 hectares provides additional privacy and opportunity for equestrian pursuits or grazing livestock.

This splendid château, with its elegant proportions and beautifully light-filled rooms, is ideally situated just 20 minutes from the beautiful historic city of Pau; one hour from the coastal resort of Biarritz and within one hour’s drive of the ski slopes of the Pyrenees mountains. Pau airport 15 minutes (with multiple daily flights to Paris); Lourdes / Tarbes airport 30 minutes; Biarritz airport one hour and Toulouse & Bordeaux airports under 2 hours drive.
Viewing is highly recommended and French Character Homes is delighted to be marketing this exceptional property!
