This sumptuous château benefits from the peace and tranquillity of a rural location, yet has easy access to Pau’s many excellent shops and amenities, including an airport. From its hillside setting, the property has stunning views of the “Château de Pau”, the city and of the magnificent Béarnaise countryside. Surrounded by forest and parkland of over 3 hectares, the château’s luxurious swimming pool measures 17m x 4m and complements the château perfectly.
Bought it in 1999 in a thoroughly dilapidated condition, the present owners have beautifully restored the château and its two outbuildings using materials of the very highest quality. They have created 12 contemporary apartments which could be sold off individually or used by the new owner for setting up a chic boutique hotel, for renting out to seasonal visitors or on a long-term basis and even for creating a smart venue where you could host weddings and events.
The apartments could also be reconfigured to create a smaller number of much larger dwellings, depending on your plans. There is also a gatehouse of 70m² which could easily be converted into a lovely house.
The ground floor has a large entrance hall with a cloakroom, a 4-room apartment (88m²) with two terraces and a second 4-room apartment (80m²) with two terraces and an immense reception room, which could be transformed into a function room/conference room.
The first floor has a delightful office/small dining room and two 2-room apartments (67m² and 60m²), each with a terrace. The second floor is a 6-room apartment (91m²) which would be suitable to use as five Bed and Breakfast rooms.
The South-East Annexe has a two-storey 5-room apartment (84m²) with a terrace and three two-storey 3-room apartments (65m², 60m² and 58m²), each with a terrace. The North-West Annexe has a studio apartment (31m²), a utility room and space for a sauna/shower on the ground floor. On the first floor there are two two-storey 2-room apartments (43m² and 39m²).
The two-storey property comprises an open-plan sitting room/dining room/kitchen (34m²), two bedrooms, a shower room and a WC.
