About this Property

Embark on a journey through time with this extraordinary historical estate, offering an unparalleled opportunity to revive a piece of French history.

Situated amidst 208 hectares of pristine land, this property boasts a majestic château, picturesque parklands, charming outbuildings, and fertile grounds ripe for cultivation.

Step into a world of medieval splendor as you enter the gates of this remarkable château, steeped in over 700 years of history. Originally constructed in the XIII century for defensive purposes, the château has since evolved, bearing witness to the architectural styles of the Renaissance and Empire periods. From its crenelated gatehouse to its spiral stone staircase and vaulted stone wine cellars, every corner of the château exudes timeless elegance and grandeur. With 25 rooms, including majestic reception halls, cozy bedrooms, and a quaint chapel, the château offers boundless opportunities for restoration (subject to necessary permissions).

Surrounded by lush parklands adorned with ancient cedar of Lebanon, plane, and oak trees, the estate evokes a sense of tranquility and serenity. A XVI century pigeonnier adds to the charm. A once-glorious swimming pool awaits restoration, promising endless days of relaxation amidst the beauty of nature.

Nestled along the banks of a meandering river, the mill house and miller's house stand as testaments to the estate's rich agricultural heritage. Further afield, four additional farmhouses with outbuildings offer glimpses into rural life, waiting to be lovingly restored to their former glory.

Spanning woodlands, meadows, and cultivated fields, the land presents a canvas for agricultural pursuits and outdoor adventures. With 48 hectares of woodland and 156 hectares of fertile soil, the possibilities are as vast as the horizon (approximately 40 hectares are currently under lease). Whether cultivating crops or simply embracing the natural beauty of the landscape, the land offers endless opportunities for exploration and enjoyment.

Conveniently located just a stone's throw from local amenities and a short drive from the bustling town of Agen and major motorways, the estate combines seclusion with accessibility, offering the perfect balance of rural charm and modern convenience.

For those with a passion for history, architecture, and the preservation of heritage, this estate represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. With its storied past and boundless potential, it is not merely a property but a legacy in the making—an invitation to write the next chapter in its illustrious history.

Testimonials

    Testimonial by Paul FINCH

    “I bought my dream property La Balie through Beaux Village in April 2022, I had been looking at properties throughout France and fell in love with the Lot et Garonne where Beaux Village has offices.  Vanessa, their representative who contacted me after I had inquired about another property helped locate properties that were not going to waste my time. More than that she really helped me understand what I was getting into and worked tirelessly to answer questions not easy to look into for someone living in Hampshire, United Kingdom. For example she visited the local Marie and farmers who I was going to be neighbours with to check there were no telephone masts, wind or pig farms about to be erected on my doorstep, so I really felt I was making an informed decision when I went through the buying process. Being English herself but speaking French, I think she had a real understanding for my concerns and was always on hand to check something or help with a recommendation. She was great in providing the missing information my UK solicitor asked for and when it came to the final part of completion, she was with me in the notaires office. Because of her professional input I’m happily living in France, not for one moment regretting my decision.” Paul FINCH
