Steeped in history, Chateau Floran started life in the 12th century as a "Donjon", a fortification tower that was a defense outpost for Chateau Latoue. Addition of the stone staircase tower, (and windows & doors!) made it into elegant accommodation. This oldest sect ion of the chateau now forms the gite, with further extensions being made in the 18th century which make up the owners wing.

It sleeps 12 with 6 bedrooms (2 double bedrooms with ensuite shower rooms, 2 further doubles, and 2 twin rooms) with 2 family bathrooms. Lounge, & kitchen/dining room, cloakroom, with the original 1m thick walls keeping the house cool during the hot summers. WiFi coverage in all the rooms. It also has a patio, swimming pool (10m x 5m)and summer kitchen.

Set in 20 acres and bordered by the River Noue, it is a place of peace & tranquility. Mature trees in the grounds shelter many birds and other wildlife including deer and wild boar. The pool area provides a refreshing cool-down, or just somewhere to soak up the sun. A summer kitchen allows the family to bbq and al fresco dining. Badminton & boules sets are provided, and tennis courts can be booked in Latoue. There are many local walks through the woods in the area and the Pyrenees are only 45 mins away. Equestrian centres are located nearby at Aurignac and Sepx. Historical Aurignac is 10mins away with shops and restaurants.

"Dépaysant!"

Lieu plein de charme, reposant, piscine agréable. Bien isolé si l'on veut être au calme, et ne pas vouloir trop visiter à proximité.… More
