Details

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 short distance from the thriving village of Mauvezin with its shops and services.

Dedicated microsite with floorplans available by request.

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 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 garages.

A pigeonnier, with four symmetrical arches at its base, has been fitted out on its two levels.
