Château life in Biarritz

A legendary château amidst a golf course, with Biarritz within easy reach and the Pyrenees as the backdrop - you have to admit it warrants a closer look. Join us on a tour of a one-of-a-kind property listed for sale with BARNES Côte Basque.

It is perhaps one of the most famous properties in the Basque Country. Owned by a family whose origins date back to the 12th century, this château stands proudly on its 16.5 acres of grounds at the heart of a golf course, with the Pyrenees visible on the horizon. And yet Biarritz’ beaches are just 10 minutes away! A marvel to be visited in SoBARNES style:

This château, entirely rebuilt in 1900, hosted eminent figures throughout the 20th century. If only walls could talk... Its 26,910 sq ft of living space have since hosted concerts, cultural events and weddings for the past few years, renowned as some of the most elegant in the region.

Guests arrive via the majestic driveway and enter into the immense entrance hall before gazing in marvel at the Gobelins tapestries in the grand salon. And yet more tapestries await in the smaller salon, this time from Aubusson.

The two staircases leading to the first floor alone are worth a trip to the Basque Country, not to mention the library gallery, softly illuminated by the atrium. This 40-room home has no less than 17 bedrooms. With all that, it goes without saying that the future owners can decide on a new destiny befitting its status.

Registered on France’s additional list of historical monuments (Inventaire supplémentaire des monuments historiques) since 1980, the château is eligible for tax deductions on the renovation and restoration works that are needed. Particularly on the former stables, spanning over 8,000 sq ft on two floors. The clay tennis court also requires renovation.

The château’s grounds exude a certain je-ne-sais-quoi, most likely emanating from the grandeur of the hundred-year-old trees. The utter calm that reigns year-round is ensured by the surrounding golf course. Nestled in the curve formed by the 13th, 14th and 15th holes, this unique property also has the good taste to be located just a stone’s throw from the charming village of the same name.

You have to admit, it’s a tempting prospect! For more details and the sale price of this wonder, contact Philippe Thomine Desmazures, Associate Director of BARNES Côte Basque and Barnes Hossegor.
