Light-filled chateau forming part of a tiny rural hamlet

An elegant mid-19C chateau with independent guest cottage set in a delightfully quiet corner of the Gascon countryside with pretty views over neighbouring vineyards. 

The property is ideal as a holiday home for a large family and with the potential for high end rentals or chambres d'hotes activity. The guest cottage is a standalone unit and further space that could be developed in the adjoining barns. A new owner should budget for partial rewiring and non-urgent redecoration as well as upgrading the drainage system. The property is offered for sale fully furnished and equipped, including designer soft furnishings and country antiques.


8kms to local shops. 17km to a riverside market town. 40kms north of Auch. Toulouse airport 114kms.
