This sumptuous château benefits from the peace and tranquillity of a rural location, yet has easy access to Pau’s many excellent shops and amenities, including an airport. From its hillside setting, the property has stunning views of the “Château de Pau”, the city and of the magnificent Béarnaise countryside. Surrounded by forest and parkland of over 3 hectares, the château’s luxurious swimming pool measures 17m x 4m and complements the château perfectly.
Bought it in 1999 in a thoroughly dilapidated condition, the present owners have beautifully restored the château and its two outbuildings using materials of the very highest quality. They have created 12 contemporary apartments which could be sold off individually or used by the new owner for setting up a chic boutique hotel, for renting out to seasonal visitors or on a long-term basis and even for creating a smart venue where you could host weddings and events.
The apartments could also be reconfigured to create a smaller number of much larger dwellings, depending on your plans. There is also a gatehouse of 70m² which could easily be converted into a lovely house.
In front of the château is a magnificent saltwater swimming pool (17m x 4m) with a full-width “beach”, which separates the main swimming area from a safe children’s area. The pool has from an electric security cover and is kept topped up using water from a spring.
Situated on the Coteaux de Jurançon, the property is in a perfect location for anyone who loves both skiing and watersports. Spain and several Pyrénées ski resorts are under an hour away to the south - and the many Atlantic beach resorts are about an hour away to the west. There are also numerous swimming lakes in the surrounding area. Toulouse and Bordeaux are just over two hours away.
