Detailed description

This 20th-century Château is located in a rural village close to the famous fortified town of Navarrenx. Commissioned by a famous opera singer who was originally from the village, this super château has an estate of 6,158m², with panoramic views of Jurançon vineyards and the Gave d’Oloron to the east and the Pyrénées mountains to the south. Constructed between 1914 and 1918, the bottom part of the château was built using local Arudy stone and the upper part was built using stone from Angoulême.

Please note that the châteaux’s seven-bedroom gatehouse is also for sale for 287,550€ (reference 96591CEL64) and may be purchased at the same time as the château for a combined price of 828,462€ (reference 96625CEL64), saving more than 24000€.

From the drive, stone steps lead up to the front door, which opens into a light and airy entrance hall. The ground floor comprises three tastefully decorated reception rooms, a music room/library and a kitchen. An east-facing dining terrace is accessible from the kitchen, which is bathed in sunlight during the morning for breakfast and partially shaded by lunchtime. 

An elegant wooden staircase in the entrance hall leads up to the first floor and a central salon and library. From the salon, there are doors to four bedrooms. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom in one of the château’s four towers; one of the four bedrooms is a master bedroom suite with a dressing room as well as an en suite bathroom.

On the second floor, a central gallery gives access to five bedrooms and a bathroom. At the end you can go up to the huge attic. The attic is full height (2.5m) and could easily be converted into more living space. If you decide to use the château as a hotel or for Bed and Breakfast guests, you could easily transform the attic into a private loft apartment for yourselves – and the views from the attic would be stunning!

The gardens and grounds of 6,158m² are planted with mature trees and shrubs, ensuring complete privacy. A sweeping drive leads up to the back of the château and the enclosed grounds slope down at the front of the building. There is ample flat land for installing a swimming pool, along with a summer kitchen and outdoor dining areas.

This lovely château is in a perfect location for lovers of skiing and watersports. Pyrénées ski resorts are about an hour away to the south – and Atlantic beach resorts are about 70 minutes to the west. There are also numerous swimming lakes in the surrounding area. If your interests are gastronomic, visit the farmers’ markets throughout the Béarn and Basque Country to sample local delicacies, such as tasty Bayonne ham or fabulous Ossau-Iraty brebis. A great choice of lively bars and restaurants can be found in nearby Navarrenx!
