Ravishing Château near Jurançon with 9 Ha estate, heated pool, outbuildings to renovate and fabulous mountain views!
This unique 19th-century château of 527m² is close to the city of Pau in South-West France. The property was exquisitely renovated by the owners in 2014 – and the delightful conservatory on the south-facing façade was commissioned by them to add a spectacular finishing touch! Currently lived in as a splendid family home, the château could also be used for upmarket holiday rentals and luxury city breaks to Pau, or as a stunning venue for hosting fabulous weddings and other events. In addition, the cottage and barn could be converted into holiday rental accommodation or transformed into function rooms or a studio for hosting art and writing workshops, wellness and yoga retreats, cookery and Jurançon wine-tasting courses…

Built in the 19th century, this magical château has been renovated and restored using the highest quality materials, fixtures and fittings possible. As well as retaining its period feel, the property now has many luxurious modern features, which include a bespoke south-facing conservatory, ceiling heating in the large salon and dining room, underfloor heating in the rest of the rooms on the ground floor and double glazing throughout.
If you work in and around Pau, this property is perfect for a spacious family home. Alternatively, the château and its outbuildings could be used for an upmarket tourism-related business or for hosting weddings and events.
The approach to the château is along a long drive with stunning views of the Pyrénées which unfold as you get closer to the building. You will immediately notice a metal footbridge linking the château’s first-floor balcony to a lovely raised garden on the other side of the drive. The light and airy entrance hall leads into a superb double salon which has a marble fireplace and wood panel walls which were recovered and brought back from a ruined château in Spain. Adjacent to the double salon is a smaller second salon with stairs down to the lower ground floor. The large, south-facing formal dining room is conveniently located next to the beautifully equipped kitchen, which has a separate informal dining area.
From the spacious formal dining room, double doors open into the wonderful conservatory, which has marvellous panoramic views of the Pyrénées. Another set of doors in the dining room opens out to a lovely east-facing dining terrace where you can enjoy breakfast in the morning sun.
On the first and second floors there are four elegant bedroom suites, each one with glorious views of the Pyrénées. Both floors have east-facing balconies - and the first-floor balcony has its own footbridge to the raised garden on the far side of the drive. On the third floor, there is plenty of attic space for storage or this could be converted into more bedrooms.
A double garage, cottage and barn are situated behind the château and are arranged in an L-shape around a courtyard. The total floor space of these three two-storey buildings is approximately 200m² on each level.
The château has an extensive estate of 9 hectares, some of which is dense forest. The gardens and grounds around the château have been attractively landscaped and a paved terrace for dining alfresco is accessible via steps down from the bell tower at the far end of the building.
THE SWIMMING POOL…
The heated, saltwater swimming pool (10.5m x 5.5m) has an electric security cover and is situated beyond the L-shape outbuildings. Next to the pool is a covered terrace (120m²) where a summer kitchen and barbecue area could be created, if desired.
THE LOCAL AREA…
Situated on the Coteaux de Jurançon, the château is in a perfect location for anyone who loves both skiing and watersports. Several Pyrénées ski resorts are under an hour away to the south - and the many Atlantic beach resorts are about 90 minutes away to the west. There are also numerous swimming lakes in the surrounding area. Toulouse and Bordeaux are just over two hours away.
