This exceptional country estate is situated in the heart of Gascony. The stunning house with its tower and beautiful period features is on a plateau and enjoys outstanding views of the rolling Gascon hills, extending to the magnificent Pyrenean mountains on a clear day. There is a guardian's lodge in the Pigeon loft, swimming pool and outbuildings, including a stone-built vaulted wine cellar. The land, of 11.3 acres (4.8 hectares), includes the beautifully maintained grounds with pond and well, woodland with a natural spring and field.

The house has been lovingly restored to a very high standard and is in very good order. One of the house's many impressive features is the stunning open-plan kitchen-dining room in a converted barn. The stonework throughout the house is exquisite, particularly the baronial fireplace in the main reception room and the flagstone floor of the original entrance hall. The woodwork is equally impressive. With 6 lovely, spacious bedrooms, including one in the tower, all with their own bathrooms, there is ample room for family and guests. Despite its grandness, the house retains a homely feel and has been happily used as a family holiday home for a number of years now. Beneath the house is the very handsome valuted cellar which remains temperate even on the hottest of summer days.

There is a guardian's lodge incorporating a Pigeon loft, as well as other outbuildings all of which are in good order.

The swimming pool, with its covered terrace, is just perfect and its spacious pool-side area makes it ideal for spending quality time with loved ones.

To the front of the house stretch the grounds which are on a plateau. There is a charming pond and a well. At the far end of the plateau are the woods with a natural spring. To the south of the plateau is the field which is currently laid to arable. There are two approaches to the property, including one along a drive along either side of which sunflowers are planted at present.
