A farm estate, with over 300 hectares of land, woods and vines, fiefdom of a listed, 18th & 19th century chateau, one of the great Pécharmant appellations.
Some 1½ hours from Bordeaux, now with 2-hour rail links to Paris courtesy of the high-speed train line; less than an hour from tourist towns such as Sarlat-la-Canéda and Montignac-Lascaux. In the Purple Périgord region, less than ten minutes from the town centre of Bergerac, its capital, labelled as a “Town and region of art and history” (train station, international airport and hospital). This property is an ideal starting point for exploring one of France’s leading tourist regions which, with its particularly temperate climate, is pleasant to live in all year round. These climate conditions, together with a suitable soil, are therefore perfectly favourable for growing the omnipresent vines and producing quality wines with such renowned appellations as Pécharmant and Monbazillac. The magnificent landscapes are, furthermore, enhanced by the ever-popular Dordogne Valley and dotted with superb fortified towns like Eymet, Beaumontois-en-Périgord, Montpazier and Lalinde, a multitude of chateaux as well as picturesque villages.
This property is in the countryside on the periphery of the urban area around Bergerac, just a little more than 500 m from the banks of the river Dordogne which it dominates from the heights of its promontory. Protected by its configuration, this estate extends over more than 300 hectares, composed of land, vines and forests, farming features, owned since the 18th and 19th centuries, as well as vast parklands, spanning more than 11 hectares, the latter with French Historic Monument listing, just like their chateau. This edifice is reached via a private driveway, more than 900 m long and partially bordered by acacia trees. The nearest surrounding woods preserve the privacy of the premises. On the west side can be found large equestrian facilities and, a little further away, outbuildings which are partially composed of the vestiges of a primitive medieval castle, dating from the 13th century, currently housing a fully fitted wine storehouse. Extensive dry moats around the perimeter of the chateau embellish the gardens, and their vast esplanades forming terraces, to the south. A completely unobstructed, much appreciated view takes in the nearby valley and stretches to the distant horizon. Also, standing here, like a belvedere, is an elegant, classical style rotunda, once a bandstand. On the east side of the chateau, this property includes several outbuildings, predominantly set out around a courtyard, amongst which are houses for the estate manager, the vineyard manager and the gardener, a workshop, an orangery, a chapel as well as utility buildings. Also worthy of note are a 34-m deep well and a 50,000-litre rainwater recuperation tank. Around the chateau parklands, at varying distances, seven farms, including the old sharecropper farms, most of which are currently rented, complete the property. Set back from the urban area, this estate takes full advantage of its privileged, extremely discreet position, protected by the hills it dominates and by its surrounding woods.
The chateauThe original castle first saw the light of day in the 13th century in accordance with the wishes of Edward Tyrgand, a natural son of Henry III of England. It was partially destroyed at the time of the French Revolution. The elegant, stately home as it exists today was above all the 18th century work of Jean-Charles-d’Augeard, chief magistrate of the Bordeaux appeal court, for whom it was a summer residence. Major redesigning works were subsequently undertaken in the 19th century by Count César-Alexandre-de-La-Panouse, a member of parliament in Paris, as of 1826, and then by his son César-Armand-Anatole-de-La-Panouse, around 1850. France-de-Boutray, his …
