Rare And Historic Gascon Gem

An outstanding medieval and renaissance chateau of manageable proportions, in a peaceful and private village setting. A rarity to the market.
The chateau du Fréchou with its high Gascon towers has panoramic views over the rolling countryside and even to the distant Pyrenees. It is surrounded by beautifully maintained formal gardens and a wonderful group of outbuildings including an impressive two-storey gatehouse, a magnificent pigeonnier, and fine period orangery. The property sits on 7 hectares, including a large walnut orchard which has potential to be replanted as a vineyard.
The earliest parts of the chateau date from c1280, with later sixteenth century additions. Construction is of the local limestone with walls up to three meters thick. The noble stone staircase is one of the best in the area, and the principal rooms have high ceilings and generous, balanced proportions, with large windows and numerous splendid stone fireplaces. The main drawing room is connected by an ancient bridge to a shady breakfast garden.
The chateau and its gardens have been sensitively enhanced and improved over the last years by the present owners, to preserve the original features and retain the historic atmosphere.
This hidden gem is located at the edge of the small village of Le Fréchou. The attractive market towns of Condom and Nérac are within easy reach, with the international airports of Toulouse and Bordeaux both 90 minutes away.
