House Lectoure (32)

Proudly facing the snow-capped mountains from its hillside position, bathed with light throughout the year, and drenched with golden summer sunshine, this property is one of the most historical, and fascinating properties to be found in the heart of Lectoure. With two gardens, and terraces on two levels, this is a house of mystery, of nooks and crannies, and endless quiet corners in which to read or escape the world. Unique and magical, it is a hard task to describe, but allow us to accompany you into the ever surprising and unexpected world of this property. We enter the building from the heart of town and leave behind the bustle of village life, with the baker, grocer, wine-shop, and tea-rooms on our doorstep, and enter an ochre coloured external hallway redolent of a Spanish castell with a wrought iron gate protecting the entrance to the inner courtyard. Owned by the same family for over thirty years, this property has been a much-loved private home. Architecturally, it is an unusual and segmented property, at the heart of which sits an internal courtyard, from whence there rises a monumental staircase built in 1702. The property comprises two separate buildings one on each side of the courtyard. The north-facing façade overlooking Lectoure’s main high street and the south-facing façade, facing the Pyrenees. The North and South sections of the property are linked on ground floor, first floor and second floor levels by covered passageways with original wooden floors and ceilings. The property has traditionally been used as one single home but equally it could be used as individual apartments with a central communal area, or as luxury lettings : with five fully equipped appartements (each with kitchen and bathroom) and a top floor artist’s studio. The building comprises two appartements on the north side, three on the south side, and the artist’s studio on the top floor under the eaves. From the internal courtyard, where there is an old stone well, we descend a short flight of stone steps, pass beneath the south-facing building, and traverse an area where old stable doors currently provide storage for garden tools and dusty bottles of wine. The south-facing garden opens into an old stone outbuilding (currently used for parking) which in turn opens onto the rear street behind, providing valuable access to the gardens for works to the property or evacuation of garden rubbish. A private parking area in Lectoure is much cherished, and it is convenient to have an exit to the southern ramparts of town, especially during the summer months when on Mondays and Fridays the popular Lectoure markets are held and the main rue Nationale is blocked for vehicular access.

This magnificent Gascon Château sits in the heart of rolling countryside and has been treasured by the same family for several generations. With its foundations in the Middle Ages, circa 1479, these old stone walls have observed the centuries pass by and observed each generation adapt the building according to the needs and innovations of its time. The most remarkable of these modifications was the extension of the original château before the French Revolution by the Comtesse de Beaumont, a courtesan of the court, who, forced to flee from court and to return home to Gascony, (one wonders at the actions that led to the wrath of the Queen?), later hosted political refugees herself, fleeing the bloodshed of Paris and the reign of terror in 1789. Later throughout the 20th century and war with Germany, the chateau once again offered sanctuary to those in need. In the second world war a Jewish refugee by the name of Irène Lezorviez, was hidden here. As a sign of recognition a tree was planted in 1987 in Jerusalem as a sign of recognition to the Gascon French resistance. The Comtesse de Beaumont was the person to make the greatest contribution to the development of the Château as we know it today. Bringing back home with her the notions of fine living she had experienced at court, the Comtesse was anxious to create a similar splendour in rural Gascony. This might have been a rural and working estate, but the Comtesse made additions to ensure that it was transformed into a place of beauty and the ideal place to host parties, with the addition of the 18th century wing which forms the main building today, to the addition of the stone turrets with their far reaching views, to the development of the stunning parkland with its tree-lined avenues in the shape of a star, leading to the bronze statue of Diane the huntress, and last but not least, the construction of the delicate and ornamental chapel where current owners of this family have married. During her time at the Château many parties were hosted here, and it is a testimony to the longevity of the Gascons themselves, that having escaped the Revolution, the Comtesse lived on until the fine age of one hundred years! Each successive generation has brought change and innovation to the park and buildings, with various additions; for example, the innovative water-pump and windmill, to the complete renewal of the roof as we see them today by the current owners. This property was the first to experience the joys of running water and has traditionally been the residence of a succession of innovative and inspirational residents. With its towers, pigeonniers, moat and wine chai, as well as being a place of beauty, we are reminded that this Château is also a testament to the rich agricultural architecture of Gascony. Brought to market for the first time in centuries by BLISS IMMOBILIER since 1881, this is a rare and extraordinary opportunity to enjoy not only an incredible building and park, but to experience French history first-hand. Some of the original furniture remains, including the commode at the entrance hall with its grand mirror, installed by the Comtesse so that she might check her appearance before leaving through the grand front door. As you glance at the mirror today, and see your own reflection, it is easy to sense the rustle of the skirts of the Comtesse behind you in the grand hallway and imagine her elegant figure sweeping across the magnificent original tiled floor. These rooms are alive with history, in a place which time has somehow managed to forget. Whether your project is to develop a business suitable to the 21st century within these walls, and to bring the rooms alive with conferences or luxury guest suites for guests visiting this wonderful corner of southwest France, or whether you are someone who simply craves the joy and of stepping back in time and living a part of your life where so many others have left their imprint before, we cannot know. What we can promise, is that this is a rare opportunity to live in a place of immense beauty. Climb to the top of the high stone turret and survey the dizzying view of your magnificent 4,6-hectare park, with far reaching views as far as the eye can see on all four sides. Admire the old oak trees which are hundreds of years old, the likes of which could never grow within a single lifetime. Welcome to your own personal opportunity to become chatelain or chatelaine of this fine Gascon château. More photos and information as well as a film on our Bliss real estate website

The approach to the property The property is hidden behind pretty stone walls, attractive wrought iron gates, and a canopy of mature trees, including some lovely mature Cyprus trees. The garden is full of roses and peonies and on the day of our visit is bursting with blossom. Beyond the pool and gardens, landscaped on two levels, our eyes are drawn across miles of countryside to the south. The vista from the property is lovely, from both the pretty gardens around the house and the valley beyond. The house : the ground floor The old wooden door, with its characterful “hand-shaped” door-knocker, opens onto a traditional Gascon hallway with a terracotta floor tile. The hallway runs the full length of the property. The kitchen With a door both to the main hallway and the side gardens and path to the pool, the kitchen is spacious enough to incorporate a dining-room table and chairs and also boasts a beautiful open fire-place, a characterful spot for a winter’s supper. The kitchen is divided into two area by a half wall, and has a pretty decorative chimney breast built with old terracotta tiles. The downstairs study/ bedroom/ WC A spacious area on the ground floor provides room for a downstairs study and bedroom, with a WC. The main reception room This pleasant symmetrical room has a pretty fireplace with a wood-burning stove and a lovely classical plasterwork surround. There are two spacious cupboards with shelves to each side of the fireplace. The floor is lain with terracotta tiles. The Dining-Room The dining room is of a similar size to the main reception room and also boasts a fireplace. In addition room houses a contemporary staircase to the first floor. The First Floor The first floor of the property provides a surprising amount of space. The first floor reception-room The stairway leads to an open plan area which is currently dressed with sofas and chairs and used as a games’ and reading room. This area has exposed oak beams running across the ceiling and has the “feel” of a cosy “den” or central communal space shared by the occupants of the other bedrooms. The first floor “cinema room” A doorway opens from the central reception area to a surprising space. There is evidence from the newly fitted (but not yet painted) plasterboard ceiling that there were plans to concert this room into a large master bedroom with a dressing-room at one end. (NB: “a change of usage” permit may be required to convert this area above the barn into extra bedrooms). Currently this room is used as a “home-cinema” room. The bedrooms Dotted around the central reception area of the first floor, there are three good-sized bedrooms. As this property was originally built in the style of a Chartreuse, the rooms have been added and built around exposed oak beams with low windows on ground floor level. The ambience in all three of these spacious rooms is one of cosy rusticity. The bathroom The upstairs bedrooms all share a family bathroom (with a bath-tub) and separate WC.

House with terrace Lectoure (32)

In the heart of a sleepy village, on a shaded central square this stone house has a pleasing façade, with its sweet garden, neat stone wall and gate. The garden to the front of the main house is just the right size for a table and chairs, a terrace, a small lawn, some shrubs and flowers, and a jaunty tree! There is a small shed providing space for a few essential garden tools with all the extra storage space one could wish for in the large stone barn across the lane. The main house The front door opens directly onto a large reception room / kitchen which has been renovated in recent years. A black framed glass partition separates the entrance hall and the kitchen, and lends a contemporary Parisian « atelier » ambiance to the room. The white stone floor is stylish and marries well with the anthracite grey kitchen units and plum coloured rear wall. The kitchen is open-plan with the main reception-room, which has conserved its original central fireplace with stone pillars and ancient brick chimney breast. The fireplace has been fitted with a black wood-burning stove. The exposed stone walls and travertine stone floors ensure the room remains fresh, light and contemporary. The downstairs shower room, cloakroom and laundry room are accessible from the main reception-room via an internal hallway. We particularly like the old carved oak doors which have been recuperated and open onto the laundry room. A steep contemporary ladder-style staircase leads to the third bedroom which forms a mezzanine area above the rear hallway. Upstairs there is fantastic head height (there is a very tall armoire), place for a large double bed, and a small desk that sits in-front of a small window. The original wooden staircase to the first floor runs from the central reception room. Upstairs there are two vast double bedrooms, and a large bathroom with a shower with a separate toilet on this level. The bedrooms are generous in size and when the windows are wide open the rooms bathed with light and pretty views of the square. The Adjacent Barn This lovely old barn is several hundred years old and built from the finest stone. It sits a stones throw from the main house on the same village square. Currently used for storage the barn has two floors. Both the ground floor and the first floor have considerable head height. This building could (with appropriate planning permission) potentially be a second habitable space of considerable size. The agency has not yet made inquiries as to the viability of this project. As it stands, the barn is used for storage alone. There is a good sized strip of lawn to the front of the barn. To whom will this property appeal? This property is ideal as a holiday home, or for a couple or small family looking for an easy to maintain property in Gascony, with just enough garden space to enjoy the picturesque village location (utterly quiet and quaint!) without having to wrestle with an enormous amount of land. Please be aware that … The stairs to the 3rd rear bedroom are steep (ladder-style)and unsuitable for anyone with mobility issues. There are no shops or restaurants of any kind. Lectoure and Condom are a short drive from the property. A car is required for shopping. There are no public transportation links from the villlage.

House Lectoure (32)

This property is located in a picturesque medieval village, itself an island amidst a sea of greenery and typical of those medieval Gascon villages for which the Gers is renowned. Although there are no shops or commerces, the property is within a whisper of Lectoure, with its many eclectic shops and restaurants. This old stone house offers sweeping views over the valley towards the south of Gascony, the views being one of the property’s most desirable features. It boasts two entrances. One is found in a narrow alleyway frequented only by locals, the other to the south, at the top of a stone staircase, beside an adorable miniature terrace: an unbeatable spot for evening (or lunchtime!) apéritifs while contemplating expanse of valley below. Entering the sturdy front door adorned with its original heavy ironwork, we find ourselves in a spacious Gascon hallway which runs from front to back of the property, where a large table takes center stage for convivial family meals. If you are not yet familiar with the area, you will soon learn that the Gascon hallway being often the grandest space in the house, easily doubles up as a formal entertaining area. Dismiss all conventional ideas as to what a hallway should be used for. In Gascony, a hallway is an extra room. To the left, we enter a warm and welcoming kitchen which is full of charm, with its glass-fronted cabinets and gleaming tile backsplashes, and is generously sized for dining and offers delicious views out to the landscape beyond. The kitchen opens directly onto the main reception room, which is equally as bright, and cosy. This room is an invitation to relaxation, or reading, or for a pleasant nap on a hot summer day, where one can enjoy the warmth of the room in winter, and its refreshing coolness in summer; the property’s thick stone walls providing protection throughout the year. The First Floor Ascend via a beautiful wooden staircase opening onto a large, light-filled landing, an ideal spot for a home office. The first bedroom is bathed in southerly light, and enjoys the same lovely views of the valley. It has hardwood floors, lime-coated stone walls, exposed beams, and a fireplace. The second bedroom, more spacious still, offers the same charm. From its window, one can see fields and woods in the distance, and the ancient medieval walls of the surrounding properties. The bathroom is contemporary in style and features a shower, bathtub, double sink, and WC. The Second Floor A staircase worn by the passage of many footsteps over time, leads to the second floor. Nestled up here, we discover the perfect nook for a cozy reading corner, along with the third bedroom: a spacious cocoon under the roof where children will delight in creating a secret hideaway. The Garden It's small...non-adjacent (being a couple of steps away) but charming! Located right beside the main house, this area provides an extra outdoor room in the summer months. A place to plant some flowers or veg. The ideal place for a summer dining table or barbecue. There is some vis à vis from the property above at the far end, but one section of the garden offers a private area for a table and chairs. Nestled against a heavy dry-stone wall, it charms with its majestic prickly pear fig tree, vivid red photinia in spring, and the abundant whiteness of its snowball bushes. A low-maintenance garden in a tranquil spot where you can contemplate under the starry skies of Gascony.

House Lectoure (32)

Boasting a prime location with far-reaching views in the heart of a highly sought-after Gascon village, this picturesque abode offers the perfect blend of rural tranquility and village life. Home to a family of three with a dog - this property is ideal as a main residence or as a holiday bolt-hole, with easy access to may countryside walks around the nearby countryside. We enter the property via a private courtyard whose ancient stone walls form an intimate and private space in which to entertain; the perfect miniature garden in which to display a collection of potted plants or in which to dine on a heady summer’s night. Small enough for easy maintenance, spacious enough for outdoor dining and relaxation in the sun, this area once comprised a first floor wooden terrasse which could potentially be re-instated in metal or wood. (Planning may be required). Certainly what this garden may lack in size, it gains in charm, being very much an additional reception-room in the summertime. From the stone courtyard we enter the house via a side door which opens onto a small hallway. Here there is a downstairs laundry room and a handy storage area. Shedding our coats, we turn to the spacious reception room which overlooks a tiny medieval street. The room is toasty warm, thanks the wood-burning stove installed by the current owners. Of note are the large glass windows which open onto the street from the reception room and allow a stream of sunlight into the room. The kitchen is a delightful area that has the “feel” of a multifunctional reception room, with a central moveable island, a dining-room area and a panoramic view of the valley to the north. The current owners would have fitted a second wood-burning stove into this room had they stayed. On the first floor an impressive master bedroom overlooks the tiny medieval village street. This fabulous room has an open-plan bathroom with a tub and sink. There is also a private ensuite WC for the parents. The family showroom shared by the other two first floor bedrooms sits in the middle of the landing. This room has a lovely view over the internal courtyard - and potentially with a rejig, one could position a bath tub in a prime position to enjoy the view. The two remaining bedrooms overlook the valley with far reaching views. One is currently used as a music room, the other a teenage bedroom : both are of a good size either as two children’s rooms - or perhaps one could be used as a study. However you choose to make use of the first floor bedrooms, the light is good and the views in both directions too. The top floor has a special surprise reserved for guests to the house. A hideaway in the eaves, a cosy nook in which to retreat, this room has the joyous playfulness of a secret den, tucked up high in the rooftop and oblivious to the stirrings of the world below. Guests who enjoy a quirky nest will feel safe and coddled by the intimate walls of this little hideaway. This room will appeal to anyone young of heart and remain entirely inaccessible to anyone who isn’t surefooted. Up on high, the bed is custom built on a platform. There is a small shower room in one corner- while WC is accessible on the first floor.

Castle Lectoure (32)

A chateau dating back to 1839 with large outhouses and 7 5 hectares of grounds, a few minutes from the town of Lectoure in France’s Gers department. A track leading to the property leaves a small country road on the hillside. A discreet spring covered with stones marks the entrance to the grounds. The chateau’s facade appears at the end of a drive shaded by tall, old trees. The edifice enjoys absolute privacy and calm. It looks out over a valley, in isolation from the rest of the world. You can admire several stunning vistas from the property. These views stretch to the town of Lectoure, perched on its rocky outcrop. The chateau is built on a large gravel terrace with a round ornamental stone pond. The building is rectangular and has an adjoining tower in the middle of its west elevation. It has four flours that can be seen from its east side, lower down. The top floor is a loft space. The edifice offers a liveable floor area of around 800m², spread between the ground floor and the first floor, which can be seen from the south driveway. The chateau was built in 1805. It is made of dressed stone, rendered with a beige lime coating. Its facade reflects the architectural traits of its era: 14 rectangular openings are arranged symmetrically around a central bay that stands out for its dressed stone and its double door that forms the main entrance. The quoins, cornices and door and window surrounds are made of exposed dressed stone. The building is crowned with a zinc and slate mansard roof with hipped ends, punctuated with three bull’s-eye windows on its south side, three on its north side, one on its east side and another one on its west side. The grounds are dotted with age-old trees and vast clearings. This wonderful outdoor space includes an isolated swimming pool, a dovecote, an old washing place and an Italian-style garden. The style of this Italian garden goes well with the chateau’s north elevation and brings out its elegance. At a lower level, there are two large rectangular outbuildings made of rubble stone. They face each other and can be reached via a separate drive on one side.

House Lectoure (32)

A house with a garden, patios, an outbuilding, a shop space and an apartment, nestled in the historical town of Lectoure in France’s Gers department. The edifice’s layout is typical of others in this town where buildings interlock with one another and stand around inner courtyards and gardens. The property extends from a main street on its north side, where you find the shop space and apartment, both currently rented out, to a secondary parallel street on its south side, where you enter a garage. It is made up of three distinct buildings that stand between two parallel streets. These sections are separated by outdoor spaces: a patio, a garden and terraces. The first building faces the main street. It has three floors with an unconverted loft space. Its entrance hallway leads to the grand town house and to the ground-floor shop space, which offers a floor area of around 60m² and has a shopfront window. The hallway also leads up to the apartment, which has three main rooms and a floor area of around 140m². This apartment takes up the edifice’s first and second floors. The second building has a single-storey 18th-century main section made of dressed stone that faces a court, which is partly covered. A four-floor medieval tower with a loft adjoins this section. This edifice has a wooden terrace on its south side and a walled garden that extends eastwards and southwards. On the narrow street on the south side, there is a separate stone building that adjoins two other properties. It houses a vast ground-floor garage and an upstairs space with sloping attic ceilings that could be converted. The latter space can be reached from the garden via the wooden terrace.

House Lectoure (32)

A discreet medieval house, its outbuilding and walled garden in the centre of a historic town in the Gers region. The property is accessed from an alleyway running parallel to the main street of the village, a stone's throw from the cathedral and all shops and schools. Built protected from prying eyes, it is shielded by the front building, whose sober facade gives no hint of the distinctive character, which unfolds in the various rooms spread over its four floors. Facing the southern ramparts, it comprises a medieval tower acquired by the current inhabitants in a state of dilapidation in the 2000s, a garden on two levels and an outbuilding, part of which has been rebuilt in wood. The main building stands in a prominent position, accessed via a stone staircase, set back from a garden and terrace embellishing the southern facade. To the north, a narrow wing projects at right angles, overlooking a patio. This patio includes a well and is divided in two by a high wall. It is located in the centre of the various buildings in the central part of the old town and provides access to a cellar and a lavatory. Despite the proximity of buildings typical for medieval town centres, the dwelling enjoys absolute peace and quiet, with no visual disturbance from neighbours and a superb vista over the countryside stretching as far as the Pyrenees.

House Lectoure (32)

This beautiful building is situated in the heart of Lectoure and representative of some of the finest architecture found in the historical quarter of this popular and touristic market town. Lectoure is known for its architectural beauty and heritage and has been listed as an area of cultural interest by the world heritage. This appartment building is in the epicentre of town, and allows its occupants to fully participate in Lectoure life, with the towns eclectic restaurants, cafés, and antique stores. The property comprises : Four appartments on three floors (2 grand appartments and 2 smaller studios), as well as a ground-floor room currently let as a professional work-space on the ground floor. Let's take a look in more detail : From the street the building presents attractively, and is built of fine stone and with an imposing and elegant façade. The original front door opens onto an elegant hallway with decorative 'carreaux de ciment' turn-of-the-last-century floor-tiles Ground Floor : Appartment 1, ground floor, currently let as office space: On the ground floor, immediately to the right of the main entrance, sits a 26m2 office space that is currently let. There is large window to the street, and the room has high ceilings and elegant proportions. To the rear of the room there is a storage room/shower and sink area. This area could be let to a lawyer, a medical professional, or anyone who wishes to occupy an office space in Lectoure but who does not need to display products in a traditional shop-window. The window to this space is a traditional 18th century window to an appartment, as opposed to a shop window for display purposes. Though currently let, one day, this space could be converted into a studio appartment. Ground Floor : Appartment 2, luxury appartment with balcony and private garden. This spacious appartment runs the length of the building to a neat garden at the end; a rare find in Lectoure. The appartment measures 114m2 and comprises not only the rear outdoor garden space, but also an internal courtyard that has been enclosed by a decorative iron veranda, creating additional internal space, and an additional balcony/terrace, that overlooks the garden. We access the garden via an internal staircase down to the cellar area, where a door opens onto the garden. The garden is attractive and well-tended, and currenly used only by the occupant of the above appartment. With two bedrooms, a kitchen and a reception room, this is a lovely space in which the future owner of the building might choose to make his home. First Floor (overlooking the garden) Sitting directly above the ground floor appartment, there is a second, equally characterful appartment of 109m2. This light and extremely attractive appartment is currently rented out, and has far reaching views to the countryside. First Floor (overlooking the road) Also on the first floor, there is a 34m2 studio with integrated kitchen and shower room, also currently occupied by a tenant. Finally, on the top floor, under the eaves, there is a 101m2 appartment. The total surface area is divided into two distinct and separate halves by the central staircase, and in the opinion of BLISS is best described as a 'chambre d'étudiante' - or students' room. It is not especially convenient to come out of the main living-room, and to cross the landing and staircase, to access the other half of the property. This room is currently occupied by a tenant. A vast wine cellar in stone runs under the entire length of the building, accessible via an internal staircase from the ground floor. This opens onto the garden. T Our thoughts here at BLISS It is rare that this kind of property comes to market, and usually at the agency we do not tend to market properties that are occupied by tenants. We have made an exception in this case, as the property is a rare find, and with many lovely features we sadly do not often find in rental accommodation. The building has been beautifully cared for over the years. The property is well located and with many lovely features. We particularly love the grand entrance hall, with its colourful orginal floor tiles, and the two larger appartments on the ground floor and first floor. Were the property empty, one might imagine joining the two together into a fabulous duplexe appartment (planning permits permitting). We also noted the gorgeous wooden turning staircase that has retained all the elegance of its period. The tall windows ensure the property is light, and the added benefit of extra rental from the office area allows the owners to contribute to annual taxes and costs. Of course the property currently brings in rental each month. Figures are available at the agency for interested parties. A little unusual on our books, but for lovers of Lectoure, who are prepared to think outside the box, this is a highly desirable building, at a price which is considerably lower than if it were sold vacant. This is one to watch out for, and one which we loved far more than we expected to. For owners wishing to continue rentals, the condition of the appartments is excellent, and the owner is quite rightly very proud of the building, and the hard work he has put in to keep everything ship shape over the years, is apparant even at first glance.

House Lectoure (32)

Situated in the Lectoure/ Condom area, on the outskirts of a popular village location, this impressive building and its adjacent land was once home to a shepherd and his flock of sheep. If “shepherd’s huts” conjure images of small and cosy dwellings, think again. This property has large and spacious rooms, high ceilings and the proportions one might more easily associate with an impressive manor house. The property has been partially restored, over a number of years, so that today we are presented with the bare and solid framework of a sizeable home with an excellent structure. With a new roof, concrete floors, exposed stone walls and new windows in most of the openings. A fabulous stone staircase links the first and second floor and there is a vast barn adjacent to the property which could also be developed (subject to any necessary planning permissions). We particularly like the way the property forms a large “L” shape around an internal sheltered garden area. This is a property which will warrant a visit and is more easily described with our photographs and floor plans - with further information on request. This is an opportunity to create a home almost from scratch, but with a solid structure and with evidence of electrical cables and drainage in place - and plans in place for what the current owners intended to do, there is ample opportunity for new owners to design the property around their own needs. With wooded parkland, stone garden walls and many trees and bushes, the grounds provide plenty of outdoor space. The nearby towns of Lectoure and Condom, with their weekly markets, schools and many shops and restaurants, are a popular destination for holiday makers and home seekers. Agen with its TGV station is just under an hour’s drive, and Toulouse international airport just over an hour.

Castle Lectoure (32)

Constructed in the 15th century and redesigned in the 17th this sumptuous château was designed in the style of the Italian Renaissance. In the North of the Gers it is located a short drive away from the popular market towns of Lectoure, Fleurance and St Clar. Situated in a quiet location, down a tranquil country lane, and far from the main road, the property offers over 7 hectares of glorious parkland and an abundance of trees. The property is entirely private being both hedged and gated, with a small stream bordering the land at the bottom. The main body of the château comprises eight bedrooms, and a vast main reception/dining-room, and first floor library/reception-room. With a separate guest house. The flamboyant Italian-style first floor “loggia” – with its covered terrace and arcades overlooking the tranquil gardens is an absolute delight. With a paved pool area, 2 dovecotes, and a vast 170m2 hangar the garden is full of interest with a vast array of mature trees, roses and bushes and an orchard. This property provides a peaceful sanctuary from the world, in a location that is unique, being utterly private, and yet in the located heart of one of the most sought-after areas of SW France. Let’s look in more detail … The local area, the parkland, gardens, and outbuildings The drive by car to the property is as pleasant one. With easy access to the local market towns of Lectoure and Fleurance the property is tranquil yet easily accessible. The TGV line to Paris in Agen is under an hour away, and Toulouse international airport, just over an hour. As we leave the market towns behind, the countryside is rich and peaceful, with small country lanes cutting through emerald, green fields, where in the summer crops of sunflowers or wheat grow in an area fondly known as French Tuscany. If Gascony is the Tuscany of France, then this property offers all the joys of Renaissance Italy. Designed in pure Italian style, the property was built by a rich noble family in the 15th century. From the outside very little can be seen, as a thick natural hedge encircles the perimeter of the land. The entrance to the property is enclosed by two fine wrought-iron gates, both of which are in perfect keeping with the château and marking the entrance in style. The château is located at the end of a quiet lane that opens out onto fields, so one is not troubled by any passing traffic. The occasional hare or deer, perhaps. We enter from the side gate to the main entrance, with a view of a splendid pigeonnier or dovecote to our right. The pool nestles beside the first of the two dovecotes and is sheltered by rose-covered walls. There is a water-well with a decorative wrought iron frame on the top. Always ideal to have a source of water on the land, to keep the lovely gardens fresh and green; not forgetting the small river that runs along the bottom field. There are over seven hectares of land in total, ensuring utmost tranquility for anyone residing here. Of those seven hectares the land around the gardens, and the guest house, comprises an orchard (to the front of the guest house) neatly mown lawns, and mature trees. There is an ornamental row of topiary, and a small river at the bottom of the land. The gardens feel rich and bucolic. In an area known for its scorching hot summers, there is a freshness to the parkland, shaded by ancient boughs of the trees. The ambience here is one of lush greenery. As we turn around the chateau to the rear gardens, we catch our first glimpse of the fantastic loggia, a covered terrace with arches running the full length of the property which is purely Italian Renaissance in style; joyous and romantic with its impressive corner pavillions. The main master bedroom opens onto the loggia, offering a morning view over the gardens; a sure promise that one’s day will begin on a note of beauty and tranquility. The Chateau has a joie de vivre which one might not expect from a Medieval building. It is warm and welcoming from the outside with its mellow golden walls catching the last of the autumn sunshine. Let’s open the grand entrance door, and step inside… The main entrance to the chateau is paved in stone with a wooden staircase to the first floor. As one would expect the entrance is formal and is divided into two distinct sections with the original wooden front door at the entrance, and at the end of the hallway a second door, with the intelligent addition of a glass door that allows the light to flood into the hallway, in a way which is not traditionally medieval but certainly delightful for modern living, where one’s instinct is to let the sunshine in, and to keep the warmth inside. From the central hallway, we take a brief look at a large room which has not been restored for any other purpose than storage, but with a large opening at the far end, in a room which is interesting in so far as it is of similar size to the main reception room, and certainly offers possibilities for further development of the property’s habitable area, planning permissions permitting. The main reception/dining-room is a fantastic space for entertainment. With its quirky vaults the room is divided into two distinct sections. The first part of the room (from the central hallway) has a lovely stone fireplace where the family gather. The perfect place for a winter or Christmas gathering. The second part of the room is used as a dining-area. There are large windows to the gardens in both the reception and dining areas. At the far end of the room, a doorway leads into a tower area, with a pleasantly Medieval feel to it, where there is a downstairs cloakroom and lavatory. The kitchen sits a little way apart from the dining-room, for ease, and has recently been completely refurbished. This is a warm and inviting room, with ample space for a breakfast table, and tasteful modern units. From the kitchen a doorway opens onto the loggia. This utterly charming terrace offers views onto the gardens from between the arches and is a delightful place to sit in the shade on a scorching hot summer’s day. Upstairs There are two wings to the first floor, set from a central staircase. Two of the bathrooms are built into the quirky corner pavilion towers. The master bedroom and the study both open onto the charming loggia. From the master bedroom you can steal a view of the morning from between the arcades of the first-floor loggia, take coffee outside on a warm private terrace area, or fall back to sleep watching the light muslin curtains flutter between the arches. This is a room in which the imagination can take flight! Also on the first floor, there is a deliciously private library, which is provides a tranquil retreat from the downstairs reception-rooms. With its rows of bookshelves, and cinema area, this is a lovely private room, where the owners can escape when the house is full of guests. One of the upstairs bedrooms is currently used as a private study but could also be used as an extra bedroom. With a total of eight bedrooms and four bathrooms on the two upstairs wings of the house, we note that each room is blessed with high volumes, tall windows, far-reaching views and many period features which have been preserved. The current owners have carried out an extensive scheme of works since they first moved in, and a vast majority of all the rooms have been recently redecorated or refurbished. The kitchen is brand new. The oil fuel boiler has just been replaced and we have noted the clever installation of the thick glass doors on the lower level that ensure the spacious ground-floor living area is snug throughout the winter months. This property is now welcoming throughout all four seasons and is in an excellent state of repair. The gardens are also immaculate and must work has been carried out to regain parts of the plot that had become overgrown. The Guest House With two bedrooms, a central reception room/kitchen and bathroom, the guest house is set well apart from the house, by the orchard, and is a decided advantage to this property either for lettings or for family and friends. Safe & Secure The property is equipped with an alarm linked to a video surveillance system which detects all movement in the property.
