This castle, out of sight of onlookers and away from any noise, is set in the heart of the countryside and yet near a road leading to Condom in but a few minutes. It dominates a little verdant valley where horses graze peacefully.
The proximity of a small town, with all amenities and all shops as well as Agen (airport with daily links to Paris and Great Britain, TGV train with 3-hours links to Paris as of July 2017), is a great asset.
This castle is not only sober but also majestic. It spans three levels under the rafters. Courtesy of its relative narrowness, the rooms are both cosier and brighter than in other castles and chateaux.
The east and west facades contrast essentially because of the views provided of the outside. The rising sun illuminates a large, well-laid out, level entrance area, whilst the setting sun bathes a stone paved terrace running alongside the building, forming a kind of belvedere looking out over a steep landscape.
A Renaissance style, stairway tower, set in the middle of the facade, provides access to the various levels. On either side are several mullioned windows with moulded pilasters; above, an entablature. Below the window sills are two triglyphs, like corbels. Dressed stone features, sheltered from the elements have remained intact. The stone has a whiteness like that of Lectoure. Although the tower roofs are covered with small flat tiles because of their steepness, the other roofs are covered with traditional Roman tiles.
It is in pristine condition inside and outside.
This traditional, long farmhouse, standing at right angles to the main residence, spans two levels, the second of which communicates with the first floor of the castle. It comprises the guest bedrooms. This outbuilding houses the section which is possibly the oldest on the property: the base of a round tower is currently included in what has become a kind of storage area and large garage. Said traditional, long farmhouse is crossed by a passageway which links the level entrance area to the wooded parklands on the north side. The caretakers’ accommodation is contained in this building, the large size of which is a sign of the importance given to the functions housed therein. An awning, currently in used as a carport, has been harmoniously added to the building.
The through passageway has resulted in the rooms contributing to its comfort being laid out on the castle side: a projection room, a bedroom with a bathroom, a discreet storeroom as well as a perfectly operational laundry room.
Its noble facades, its towers as well as its refined decor, inside and outside, give this castle a proud appearance. It is filled with copious amounts of light. The spaciousness of its rooms and grounds are not to be feared as everything is in pristine condition, providing an extremely pleasant way of life. As regards leisure activities, residents simply have to choose between reading in a library which is difficult to leave, nature, sport, meditation of the miscellaneous landscapes as well as spending time with family and friends in this comfortable home.
