In the heart of the South-West region, close to the towns of Fumel, Villeneuve-sur-Lot and Agen, whose airport links it to Paris in 1 hour 25 mins. By TGV, Toulouse and Bordeaux are just one hour away and Paris four. A gently undulating region alternating a coloured mosaic of grasslands, woods and cultivated landscapes where an outstanding architectural heritage is made up of a number of medieval fortified towns, hilltop villages, castles, abbeys and mills. Close to two towns, one of which was once an important fortified city and today home to artists and craftsmen, where it feels good to stroll through cobbled streets and their beautiful facades, and stop off to eat something at the restaurants serving local produce or just simply enjoy the view. The river Lot located downhill is navigable making it possible to visit the region in a different way.
Built of random limestone and tuff, the chateau is raised above a basement level occupied by a series of rooms and cellars mainly vaulted where a well is also to be found. It comprises a rectangular-shaped main building spanning three storeys (excluding attic space) and features high gable-fronted lucarnes. It is covered by a flat-tile hip roof. The south-facing facade is flanked by two round towers and has a big terrace from where one may admire the unobstructed view. A tall rectangular tower and turret are situated to the north west. It houses the main wooden spiral staircase with three successive flights of steps and landings. To the north, the main building is flanked by a second building, intended originally for the servants, with a main-slope, open-gable roof. There is a secondary stone spiral staircase here but also a lift leading to the three main floors. It also has a terrace, a smaller one and a quarter turning stone stairway leading to a second entrance on the same level as the former groom’s house. The rooms on the inside have preserved their authenticity and can be lived in as they are. The surface area of approx. 827 m2 (excluding cellars and attic) is set out as large and mainly luminous rooms, the decoration of which still bears witness to the elegance of a distant past: Versailles herringbone parquet flooring, French ceilings, fireplaces with moulded trumeaux, wallpapered walls, wainscoting, finely-decorated period doors, cement floor tiles and period fish-scale mosaics etc….
The former groom's house
To the north west, on a slightly lower level from the chateau, the former groom’s house spans two storeys and is topped by a flat-tile roof.
It comprises three main buildings forming a U shape and a large covered shelter.
The north wing houses the former stable where there are six loose boxes. The south wing includes a tool room, wood storage (former horseshoeing room) as well as a workshop with a car repair pit. The central part of the building comprises a large garage, but also access to the living quarters (approx. 27 m2). The ground floor incorporates the entrance hall and wooden staircase leading to the upper floor as well as a second quarter turning staircase linking it to the cellar. A former tack room has been converted into a bedroom. On the first floor, the rooms can be lived in as they are but could do with a new coat of paint. They are spacious, luminous and feature the exposed roofing framework. Two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, a vast living room (approx. 98 m2) with dining area as well as a large artists’ workshop (75 m2) complete this level.
The chateau and its estate perched like a watchtower on a knoll are surprising for more than one reason. The building itself is an example of glorious architecture and the grounds with its large variety of century-old trees bring true added value. In this peaceful setting, walks in the parklands are a treat for the eye. The wonderful views from the terraces and from the windows are a luxury that one will never tire of. It is true that the property is in need of some attention although it could be lived in straightaway and the roofs could do with re-roofing but there is no real emergency. The site is so unique that it would be a shame not to undertake such renovation works and thus take even more advantage of its numerous amenities and desirable features.
