This property is my family's ancestral home. It is very dear to us, and we have tried to maintain and update it with all respect due to its age and inherent character.

Veronique Lamarque purchased this chateau / country house in 1800

If you're looking for a secluded retreat, yet with easy access to some of Roman Christianity's architectural jewels, the renowned town of PAU (Henri IV) and its fancy shopping and pedestrian area, easy and moderate hiking opportunities, and maybe the best food ever, this is for you!

A genuine countryside property -with all modern life amenities (yes, you can still keep up with emails!)-, you will soon fall into the pleasure of taking a nap by the pool after lunch!

SPECTACULAR, CHARMING, PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
This is a spectacularly elegant house oozing with charm. The surrounding countryside (not a house in sight) is gorgeous, including cows grazing in the surrounding meadows. The salt water pool is a very good size and is just steps from the house. The rooms are all very spacious, delightfully decorated with a mix of antique and modern; not so fancy that you can't relax and feel at home, but special enough that you feel like you have a whole romantic chateau to yourself. All modern conveniences, laundry, very well equipped kitchen etc. The location - tiny village - is excellent, and the whole surrounding area is stunningly beautiful. Nearby towns - about 5-10 min by car - abound with patisseries, restaurants, everything you need. Whitewater rafting within 20 minutes, close to the mountains for hiking. The thing is, though, it's so peaceful, you won't feel like doing much in the way of sightseeing. Not another tourist in sight, thank goodness. French with a capital F. Run, don't walk. It will be the vacation of a lifetime.
