Now well-known, the town of Lectoure is an emblematic place for enthusiasts of photography, the arts and the pleasant Gascony way of life.
Constructed on the top of a hill in keeping with the layout of a Roman castrum, it features narrow, parallel streets, slowly making their way down the hillsides.
Ideally located, half-way between Auch and Agen (a TGV train station with 3-hour links to Paris and an airport with flights to Paris as well as England), this little town still has all of its heritage, dominated by its famous white stone with golden hues.
A weekly market and numerous shops, restaurants and amenities are responsible for the daily hustle and bustle.
The large, luxurious home, once the Royal Tannery
This beautiful, well-roofed house spans two levels, topped with a converted attic floor. Its high roof, with four steeply curved slopes covered with small flat tiles and ridges protected by Roman tiles, features roof dormers and shields sand and lime-rendered stone masonry. The evenly-spaced openings and the presence of a Louis XV style balcony and railings reflect perfect classicism. Although water is somewhat surprisingly omnipresent in the form of an interior drainage well and a permanent underground stream, the house is perfectly sound, with no sign of rising damp.
The annex house
This two-storey house, dating from the same era as the residence, is in need of full interior renovation works. It backs on to the hillside, with its facade overlooking the alleyway. Each of its gable ends features an entrance door. A small courtyard on the west side could become a little patio, topped with the upstairs balcony.
The house is divided into three self-contained sections, each of which houses a flat that can communicate with the others.
All three of the flats comprise two rooms, a kitchen and a shower room with a toilet. Part of the central flat is upstairs.
These parklands pose a problem in that residents and guests have to choose between strolling around or just looking at them. They should, above all, take the time to visit the many nooks and crannies, each offering a different view. The variety of the species, ranging from lime to olive trees and including cypress as well as fruit trees in an orchard can but be a continual delight. The cascading pools remaining from the old tannery form another garden feature, now converted into a fishpond for koi carp. Yet another bigger pool can be used as a swimming pool.
Five garages for private cars
These garages, laid out above the annex house, open on to the street, marking the official entrance to the property. They represent an asset that is much appreciated when receiving guests in a town where parking can be difficult.
(Surface area: 5x22 m², a total of 110 m²).
If Paul-Claudel can call Versailles’ Hall of Mirrors a terrace overlooking natural surroundings, it can be said that Lectoure’s old Royal Tannery is a belvedere looking out over Gascony, a Gascony that is embellished with the Pyrenean mountain range as a backdrop. The features of this property, whether buildings or gardens, are harmoniously laid out. The views, both of and from the residence, are an additional attraction.
The interior decoration has remained sober, thus enhancing the elegance of its stairway, with wrought iron railings, as well as its heavy lock and the mysteries of a secret drainage well.
The ornamental pools are a reminder of the premises’ original vocation and the permanent presence of running water.
