Built in the 14th Century, this spectacular chateau in the heart of the Madiran winelands is offered in turnkey condition and boasts an elegant blend of modern convenience and historical character. Originally built as a Catholic monastery, the chateau was converted into an impressive home by Jean d’Arricou, the Abbot of Montpezat, during the Protestant reformation of the 16th Century. The castle was extended in the 18th Century but fell into disrepair before being saved from ruin in the 1970s.

While much of the original architecture remains, the chateau’s interiors have been extensively refurbished in recent years making it an ideal investment as a unique family home. The main building, known as Saint-Jacques, contains five spacious bedrooms and four bathrooms along with a large living room, kitchen and dining room complete with fireplace and exposed beams. A show-stopping 250 square metre terrace built on the castle’s former buttresses can also be accessed from the main building for incredible views over the Pyrenees. Alongside the main building, a recreational area known as the Tower of Saint-Michel offers a bar, wine cellar, snooker room and private guest suite with bathroom while a separate building called Maison d’Amis contains a further three bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen making it ideal for guests or staff.

Chateau d’Arricau-Bordes is listed for sale for €2,090,000 with Knight Frank.
