An historic chateau for sale with links to D'Artagnan and Wellington


Set in spectacular countryside of the Madiran winelands with panoramic views of the distant Pyrenees. Château: 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms. Maison d'Amis: 3 bedrooms, bathroom. Outbuilding with office/events room. Swimming pool. Listed pigeonnier. 14-ha wooded estate. For local reference quote: IP 1146

Further information including floorplans and additional images are available by request within a DEDICATED MICROSITE

Built in honey-coloured stone and rising majestically from the flank of a hill, the chateau has a rare, almost fairy-tale quality. In the 18C, d'Artagnan's uncle enlarged the property and legend has it he often entertained the illustrious musketeer. In March 1814, Wellington is reputed to have stayed at the chateau while advancing towards Toulouse.

Saved from virtual ruin in the 1970s, the property has been entirely refurbished in recent years and its manageable proportions are ideal for present-day living. The main accommodation rises over three floors accessed by a superb spiral staircase and a south tower provides further entertaining space and wine storage.

An immense, elevated terrace overlooks the swimming pool and gardens and the outbuildings include a first floor office/events room, with garaging and car port below. The Maison d'Amis is suitable for family, letting or resident staff.
The majority of the outlying estate is wooded, with many delightful pathways and the meadows are rich in wild flowers including a dozen varieties of orchids.


Local shopping 6kms. Airports: Pau airport 46kms, Biarritz 160kms, Bordeaux 195kms, Toulouse 220kms

The Madiran country sits astride three modern-day departments and belongs as much to Aquitaine as to Gascony. The fertile valleys produce maize, sunflowers, kiwis and vines and the wooded ridges are replete with birds of prey, wild boar and deer. The local town has everyday amenities while Pau, Bordeaux and Toulouse are major centres for commerce and culture. The Atlantic coast, Biarritz, the Pyrenees and Spain are all within easy reach.
