A listed, fully restored, 13th, 15th & 16th century castle, with a pool, a tennis court and some 12 ha of woods and meadows in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region’s Gascony countryside.
In the midst of the Aquitaine region, not far from the town of Agen, with its TGV train station and its airport, both with links to Paris respectively taking 190 and 80 minutes. Near to slip roads for the Bordeaux-Toulouse motorway. The wealth of the French department of Lot-et-Garonne is just waiting to be explored, the surroundings comprising fortified “bastide” towns as well as a large variety of landscapes and extending from the hilly area known as Pays-de-Serre and the wide Garonne plain to the French department of Landes, all within easy reach.
This large Gascony residence, set in the area around Nérac, the land of Henri IV with its wealth of castles, is to be found concealed at the end of an alleyway, lined with pink and white chestnut trees.
A high, medieval perimeter wall, in front of a shady meadow used as a carpark, features a central porch way, topped with a brattice.
A little hamlet, out of sight of the castle, is close by and chestnut tree-lined alleyways blend in with the wooded surroundings.
The history of this residence goes back a long way: its tower, a square keep dating from the 13th century, was integrated into a residence set at right angles with a round tower in the 15th century. The perimeter wall, with a miniature castle gatehouse, dates from the same era; as do the still visible mullioned windows, arrow-loops and watch-turrets.
A dwelling and outbuildings were added, thus forming an inner courtyard. This is reached via the long, vaulted passageway of the exposed stone porch. Against the miniature castle gatehouse wall, a stone stairway goes up to a games room. The other side houses a large woodshed.
The castle is a long, traditional building, with a tall central door, two windows on either side and five windows on the first floor. Two wings set at right angles are extended by outbuildings, the walls covered with well-trimmed Virginia creeper. A vaulted passageway, on one side between a garage and a stable, opens into an area looking down on the meadow below; on the other side, near to a little, round, corner tower, a stone stairway with curved steps, leads down to the meadow below. The landscape extends for as far as the eye can see. Sports facilities include a discreet swimming pool installed here on a lower level, with a tennis court a little further away.
All the alleyways are lined with gravel and the lawns are immaculately kept. Hibiscus, rose and climbing hydrangea soften this property’s somewhat imposing air.
The main residenceIn the middle of the central building, a tall door with an arched lintel, like all the windows on this facade, opens into a through gallery. The latter provides access to two lounges, facing one another. Four windows, on either side of the door, look out over the courtyard, letting in copious amounts of daylight. On the rear facade, it is possible to see the large pieces of dressed stone that make up the keep, set in a more recent building. In the centre of the gallery, a long passageway, running alongside the wall of the keep, opens into the rear section of the castle. A stone stairway, with wide steps, goes upstairs.
This residence predominantly features French ceilings.
Ground floor
A few steps go down from the gallery to a large, very bright lounge, with three north-facing mullioned windows, fitted with indoor shutters. This room has old terracotta floor tiles and a large straight fireplace with a small brick mantel and a stone lintel, in good working order, just like all the other fireplaces in the house.
This room opens into a dining room and a little lounge which takes up the corner of this wing and opens on to the terrace bordering this …
