The beautiful chateau is blessed with its enviable location, half way between Bordeaux and Toulouse in the heart of Gascony and near enough to both the Dordogne and the Lot-et-Garonne.
This listed ‘Monument Historique’ was once an ancient fortress before becoming an Italian palace in the 17th century. Now it provides a setting full of elegant charm and authenticity where guests are treated to ancient stone arches and a majestic courtyard.
The 25 acres of private parkland are rich with 18th and 19th century plantations of Lebanese and Atlas cedar, cypress, oak, Siberian elm and no less than 100 different essences to discover hidden away in the vast grounds.
The south terrace boasts unrivalled panoramic views over the magical rural landscape and the bedrooms in 'the logis' offer views over the valley.

The first guest house has 8 large bedrooms, with spectacular views, for up to 16 guests and 6 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and spacious living room. The second is ideal for a family with young children as it sleeps 8 plus a baby in 4 bedrooms. Similarly, this house is furnished with a fully equipped kitchen, a large living room with fireplace, private parking and a covered terrace.

Last but not least, guests at chateau have access to a fantastic tennis court and a private fishing lake. There is also a boules pitch, table tennis, table football, badminton and swings, perfect to keep the little ones entertained.
The local villages are abundant with treasures including moonlit markets and Sunday antique and flea-markets. They also boast a delicious selection of locally produced cheeses, foie-gras, wine and Armagnac, with countless vineyards to visit and gastronomic festivals to attend.
For a more active holiday, canoeing, archery, accrobranche, tennis, horse riding and golf are all available nearby and the Landes Forest is ideal for a day of hiking or cycling; making chateau perfect for all the family.
