Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 4 ensuite bath/shower rooms, pool, covered dining terrace....

A small very private chateau on the top of a ridge with uninterrupted views due south across the Pyrenees and over the valley below... totally magical.

The property has been the owners' family holiday home in France for over 25 years and is deeply loved. Upstairs in the main house, there are four bedrooms available for rent, each with its own shower/bath room, three with balconies. The one without a balcony has bunkbeds and so is ideal for children (or teenagers!). The remaining rooms can be used for double or twin occupancy. Downstairs there is a large and spacious room with clear "zones" for relaxing and for formal and informal dining, a separate snug with fireplace, TV and large selection of DVD's/videos, a laundry and a snooker room equipped with three quarter size snooker table. This floor also has the kitchen with breakfast room, and terraces both to the front and rear of the property. In the cellar are two rooms which house pool equipment and spare garden furniture.

The swimming pool (fresh water) overlooks the terrace. Both are perfect spots to enjoy the sun or the shade of the terrace and the views over the valley. A fridge, dishwasher and BBQ are available on the terrace to complement a table large enough and equipped to seat eight in comfort. A wonderfully relaxing place to study the view, or enjoy a family meal.

Behind the house is a garage with a one-bedroomed studio above. This can also be rented at the same time as the main house.... please contact us if you would like to consider this. The studio has a shower room, kitchen and very secluded terrace overlooking the gardens... one of the owner's favourite spots for a drink at sundown.

There are many spots around the property to find peace and tranquility; equally the property lends itself brilliantly, to family parties especially evening meals on the terrace watching lights come on in the village of Marciac below or listening to the jazz from the annual festival held there each year during the first part of August.

Golf, wine tasting, superb cuisine in nearby restaurants, walking, historical architecture are among the many options for enjoying yourself here.... or just relaxing in a very peaceful and tranquil setting..

Lovely grand House with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This is our second holiday in the area and we booked the house hoping for the wonderful view , which did not disappoint . The house is spacious, well equipped and suited us perfectly and we hope very much to come back and stay here again . The heated pool was brilliant. 10/10 . If you want a house that's convenient, grand and full of character then I recommend it . Thanks Christine and family for sharing your home .

The annual jazz festival is a major tourist and music event in Marciac. There are amazing groups, solo acts and a fantastic opportunity to sit in the town square and enjoy the open air jazz played there into the evening. I love sitting with a glass of wine, beautiful music watching the world...

Wineries abound in the region especially those using the madirsn grapes ... there is a vineyard on the slopes just below the chateau which is owned by Saint Mont, a local well known wine
