Property Description

This impressive Chateau, Napoleonic in style, comprises 581 m² of renovated living space, together with a caretaker's house of 260 m² and 12 Ha of land. The upgraded electrics, plumbing, roof and central heating have brought this beautiful historic property up to standard without losing its soul.
Popular legend has it that the Chateau received its name “La Bataille” following a defense against the Duke of Wellington 1814. However, documents show that the link between the English and French at this estate goes back even further, namely to the Hundred year wars. “La Bataille” was also famed for its role in the production of fine Armagnac.
Standing proudly at the end of a sweeping wooded driveway, and flanked on either side by two elegant barns, one enters the chateau to discover on the ground floor a reception hall, salon, library, dining room with French doors leading to an exterior terrace and stone staircase, a second lounge, and large games room. All rooms have been renovated and retain their original cachet and grandeur. On the East Wing lies an office. Moving to the west wing of the chateau, a large family kitchen with original fireplace, large scullery, downstairs bedroom with en-suite and guest cloakroom complete the ground floor.
Ascending the sumptuous, curved stone staircase, one finds 6 light and elegantly proportioned bedrooms, each with access to a private bathroom. The original oiled parquet floors, marble fireplaces and large windows are amongst many of the lovely authentic details to still be found in the Chateau. In addition to this living space, the original servants quarters are laid out ready for conversion. The basement of the Chateau offer excellent wine cellars, together with rooms that could be beautifully transformed into garden access accommodation.
The grounds make up a graceful park of 12ha, planted with Centennial trees, a stable block with 9 boxes, a dovecote, an interior kitchen courtyard and chicken coop, a well, a fiberglass pool, and a large barn.

A little further up from the main property, lies a large independent Guardian’s house of 260 m² which has recently had an interior renovation but requires repairs to the roof. This seperate house comprises 4 bedrooms, a large lounge with fireplace and French doors to a private south facing terrace, a dining room and kitchen.

The owners renovated the main property in 2010 making a very comfortable living environment. Some final touches need completing such as hanging new shutters (already stocked in the cellars) and freshening up the outside appearance, to return this impressive Chateau to sparkling grandeur.

Less than 10 minutes from the Bordeaux / Pau motorway exchange, this estate offers tremendous potential for business ventures, from hotellry, restaurant, B&B and Gites to equestrian projects thanks to the existing stables, woodland and meadows or simply 2 to 3 families living together. 20 minutes to the Landes Prefecture town of Mont de Marsan and Aire-sur-Adour, 30 minutes to Nogaro, famous for its racing circuit, 70 minutes from the Landes beaches and 90 minutes to the mountains.
