Chateau overview - owner's description
Nowadays “the luxury of all luxuries” is silence and space in an exceptional environment, off the beaten track. Built during the 12th century, this family chateau is not a hotel.
Nowadays “the luxury of all luxuries” is silence and space in an exceptional environment, off the beaten track. Built during the 12th century, this family chateau is not a hotel, it's a "home away from home", overlooking the Gascogne hillside in the south west of France.
In the country of the Armagnac, foie-gras, d'Artagnan & the Three Musketeers, it is halfway between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean sea and one and a half hours away from Spain and the Pyrenees.
Surrounded by a 4 acre park with secular trees (and squirrels!), it overlooks the Gascony region known as the “French Tuscany” due to the beauty of its vineyards and hillsides. Bathed in the warmth of this unique property that has been in the same family for four generations, you will enjoy numerous antiques and heirlooms as well as a guarantee of privacy and discretion.
The chateau and its two separate apartments are the perfect backdrop for family reunions and holidays and offers accommodation from 27 to 50 guests. It can also host private wedding parties. The excellent acoustics of its reception area created in the former 'chais' (once the cradle of a renowned Armagnac producer) can comfortably welcome up to 500 guests. This is a unique find in this region.
The environment is also perfect for work sessions and it provides the comfort in the peace and quiet required for successful conferences, seminars and confidential business meetings.
This family chateau is a true “home away from home” and is also available for exclusive hire of the whole property.
The current owner of the premises just gives you the keys to your happiness while staying out of your haven.
Chateau Des Nuits Blanches Estate is available for larger groups of up to 50 guests and included both the White Night Space and the reception areas.

For more than eight centuries the history of Gascony and the founder of the Chateau have been linked. It is situated in the south of beautiful Dordogne where the founder and his descendants, having settled in the southwest of France in the 12th century, left an indelible mark on the region throughout the four succeeding centuries. They were notably Crusaders or Consuls and actively participated in the construction of the villages' fortified manor (the oldest in Gascony). They are among key figures locally to whom we have to thank for today's legacy of fortified castles, cathedrals and colourful legends.
Later, in the 16th century, one of the descendants initiated his entourage into the rituals of Armagnac, one of the first eau-de-vie in France. At the beginning of the 20th century, the family of the present owner bought this domain and developed its own brand of Armagnac, which became a landmark in French gastronomy.
Around the Chateau, there is a range of outdoor activities, visits and excursions that include:
- Castelnau de Fources.
- Fortified villages of Larressingle.
- Collegiale de La Romieu.
- The Seviac gallo-roman villa (The most famous one in Europe).
- The numerous cathedrals and cloisters of the neighbouring towns.
- The Landes forest (the largest in Europe, created by Napoleon the 3rd).
