This Chateau for sale is part of an extensive and versatile property which also boasts three additional buildings, set in grounds of 22 hectares in the popular department of the Gers, a short drive away from a bustling town. The chateau and 3 additional buildings are in walk-in condition and could be adapted to a variety of commercial opportunities.
No expense has been spared in renovating and updating the chateau, barn and grounds into an idyllic retreat suitable for a range of commercial purposes or a luxury domaine. There is potential to develop and personalise it further.
