This elegant and quintessentially French Château is a rare find in this region. The beautiful historic city of Pau with its International school can be reached in 25 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 driveway in the centre of 7.78 hectares (circa 17acres) of immaculate grounds.
The ensemble includes the chateau; a large triple car 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 gardens of 3.43 hectares have been extensively landscaped to create a perfect balance of formal gardens, meadows and woodlands. The gardens include numerous water features; rose ladened pergolas; well-stocked flower beds and specimen trees. A large, fenced field of 4.33 hectares provides additional privacy and opportunity for equestrian pursuits or grazing livestock.
Since their ownership in 2013, the current owners have significantly upgraded the property; restoring the ground floor, including the employment of specialist artisans to apply chalk render to the walls, installing a protective drainage system around the periphery of the chateau; and replacing the sanitation systems. The Château now offers a perfect retreat for an owner searching peace of mind.
This enormously appealing château, with its elegant proportions and beautifully light rooms, is ideally situated just 25 minutes from the beautiful historic city of Pau; one hour from the coast resort of Biarritz and within one hours drive of the ski slopes of the Pyrenees mountains. Pau airport 15 minutes (with 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!
