Enchanting Historic Chateau

Dating from the 13C and transformed in the 18C this fascinating chateau is tucked away in the rolling countryside of Gascony, as if caught in a time warp. Set on elevated ground outside a small rural hamlet only a few minutes from the thriving village of Mauvezin with its shops and services.

The estate comprises the chateau, a substantial guesthouse and a freestanding pigeonnier all entirely renovated to a very high standard in the last 10 years while retaining many original features. The main elevations were reworked in the late 18th century with multiple windows and a triple ‘genoise’ eaves detail, giving the chateau a classical appearance. A stone staircase in the hexagonal tower of the chateau is an extraordinary feature linking all three floors, with a gentle rise and lit by windows at every level. Reception rooms are on ground and first floor level, with 5 well-proportioned bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor and a fascinating belvedere at the top of the tower. There is a high degree of insulation throughout with double-glazed windows and heating by heat pump.

Outside, entertaining terraces link with a spectacular 15m infinity pool and delightful mature parkland with a fine collection of centenarian cedar trees, oaks, ash and other indigenous species. Watering system for formal gardens. Further young woodland and pasture. 3.8 hectares in all.
Separated by a formal garden is a second stone building with round tower, now transformed into a guesthouse with 5 suites with reception areas including a vast, double-height party room of 85 m². Adjoining outbuildings, with workshop, storage space and lock up garages.

A pigeonnier, with four symmetrical arches at its base, has been fitted out on its two levels. The countryside falls away to the south with magnificent views to the distant Pyrenees. All buildings on the estate are in a delightful pale limestone.
