This stylish country Manoir quite deservingly carries the title of Chateau, locally. The ruins of the earlier Chateau plus the original Allées de Cavalières, leading through the glorious private woodland, stands to testify the origins of this site. In many respects this country home offers a more comfortable living experience than a classic chateau and certainly, total peace of mind thanks to its extensive and sympathetic restorations by skilled craftsmen. Traditional materials and skills were combined with modern luxury comforts to create this stylish contemporary home.
Built on the flank of a hillside with far reaching views across the Madiran wine region, the motivation of the current owners to rescue this neglected building is obvious. The property sits at the end of a sweeping driveway, screened by an imposing entrance and protected by six and a half hectares of private gardens and woodland.
Painstaking renovations started in 2008 and today’s result is a stylish and spacious country residence, which effortlessly blends the authenticity of this period building with a relaxed contemporary finish. The property has an appealing configuration and is light and spacious with its high ceilings, enormous glazed doors and generous sized rooms. Accommodation is provided over two floors. The main entrance opens into a wide hallway leading into two sitting rooms, a games room and a dining kitchen. The main sitting room is particularly attractive with its 16C-reclaimed fireplace and beautifully appointed exposed stonewalls. The spacious dining kitchen comfortably seats 16 people and offers a contemporary twist with modern cupboards set against its expose stonewalls. Doors open onto the rear terrace, which over-looks the all-weather tennis court and a large heated swimming pool. The first floor offers six double bedrooms and five bathrooms, two of which are en-suite. Two of the bedrooms open onto a covered balcony with breath-taking views over the countryside.
Situated in the Madiran wine region; close to the popular market towns of Lembeye and Garlin and just 25 minutes from the beautiful historical city of Pau. For gastronomic experiences, the world-renowned chef, Michel Guérard’s offers two restaurants in Eugénie les Bains; Les Prés d’Eugénie, which has held 3 Michelin Stars since 1977 and La Ferme Aux Grives offering wonderful hearty local food. Within the same grounds, The Ferme Thermale Spa offers spa treatments with the deep benefits of the town’s age old thermal springs. This property is ideally located just over one hour from both the ski slopes of the Pyrénées, the Atlantic Coast around Biarritz, and the Spanish border.
TGV to Bordeaux 2hrs and a further 2hrs onto Paris. Pau airport 20 minutes; Tarbes / Lourdes airport 40 minutes; Bordeaux International airport under 2 hours.
For someone looking for a special protected site with guaranteed tranquillity and total peace of mind, this may just be the place !
