Living France - - The Essentials -

A 10-bed­room château in south-west France has been sold at auc­tion for just over €1m, de­spite be­ing val­ued at €2.945m. The stun­ning prop­erty in Pyrénées-At­lan­tiques went un­der the ham­mer on 22 June with no set re­serve price, al­low­ing one lucky buyer to bag them­selves a real bar­gain. Orig­i­nally built in 1811, the château has four large re­cep­tion rooms and nine lux­ury bed­room suites, while a one-bed­room guest cot­tage, sum­mer house and barn pro­vide ad­di­tional ac­com­mo­da­tion in the ex­ten­sive grounds. Set in 14 hectares of land, the prop­erty also comes with its own pri­vate lake, heated swimming pool, cin­ema, gym and sauna. Fur­ther­more, it has al­ready been renovated through­out, in­clud­ing com­plete rewiring and re-plumb­ing, new dou­ble-glazed win­dows and a geother­mic heat­ing sys­tem. Just 35 min­utes from the city of Pau, the prop­erty is also within an hour of both the Pyrénées and the beaches of Biar­ritz.
