General Description

This is a 19th-Century jewel, which sits majestically on 100 acres of park, farm and woodland. This unique setting, at the end of a one kilometre driveway, offers privacy and tranquillity in the rural Midi-Pyrénées, just five minutes from the UNESCO classified ancient village of St. Lizier, one of France's Plus Beaux Villages.

The château has been recently renovated and offers light and spacious rooms with a charming blend of old and new. Its rich, historic past greets guests in many original details; high ceilings with intricate wooden details, ornate cornices, tall mosaic windows, impressive fireplaces and a grand staircase to take your breath away. They sit alongside modern bathrooms, artwork and the large swimming pool and sleek wooden decking.

Despite this idyllic, rural location, both the historic and modern quarters of the village are just a 5-minute drive away, so everything is within easy reach including its highlights, such as its stunning cathedral with cloisters, octagonal tower and 11th-Century frescoes. The village is within the Natural Regional park of the Ariège Pyrénées, so outdoor activities such as cycling, kayaking, and horse-riding are in abundance amongst its lakes, mountains and forests. Hiking is a great way to discover this beautiful National Park and in the Spring the waterfall at Cascade d’Ars is a highlight. Skiing is possible just half-an-hour from the property at the nearby resort of Guzet. The area is rich with Roman churches to visit and medieval villages to explore, such as La Bastide-de-Serou and Le Mas-d'Azil.

This property is the perfect retreat and setting for sumptuous and relaxing holidays as well as special celebrations in this beautifully unique part of South West France.
