With origins in the 14th century, this historic property has been in the same family for over five hundred years. It is privately set in a hamlet in the foothills of the Pyrenees and easily accessible from both Tarbes/Lourdes Airport and Pau Airport. The chateau has a timeless atmosphere and has always worked well as a large family home. However it also has the potential to function as an exclusive hotel. The property sits in its own parkland with a stream, meadows, swimming pool and tennis court. Substantial outbuildings, walled gardens and tree lined drive complete the ensemble. The Chateau has three main floors plus a full height attic floor. On each floor is a family suite with sitting room and bedrooms.

The department of Hautes-Pyrenees is the southern-most department of the Midi Pyrenees region, its capital being the beautiful town of Tarbes. The department has a very interesting geography as two small sections belonging geographically to Aquitaine are administratively part of the Hautes-Pyrenees. The department is split into two very different landscapes: mountains to the south covering half of the department, valleys to the north where the majority of the towns and villages are.
The economy of the department is mainly agricultural and tourism. Inside Midi Pyrenees, smaller areas have traditional names such as the Comminges (east of Toulouse) or the famous Gascony. Hautes-Pyrenees is a very nice area to settle and one area to look out for (not very well known) is the Baronnies, a set of 30 villages which decided to preserve their rural traditions. An unspoilt area, they represent the rural idyll for anybody in search for absolute peace, authenticity and rest.
