In the mesmerising region of the Gers, Château du Partage is a historic, boutique-style abode which has been painstakingly renovated to an incredibly high standard.

This has been such an arduous project by its dedicated owners who fell in love with the Gers many years ago and married there before deciding to find their very own French home. It’s no wonder they fell in love at first sight with this 17th century château with its glorious grounds and breathtaking views towards the Pyrenees. The result of the restoration is truly stunning - they have created a dreamlike home with the most beautiful interiors.

Admire the Farrow and Ball tones of the exquisitely designed drawing room with stylish furniture around the open fire, then move into the sumptuous lounge before stepping into the bespoke kitchen with emerald tiles and Lacanche range oven, perfect for long lunches on the long wooden table. The formal dining room is another picture-perfect spot for feasts whilst the library awaits for a peaceful coffee or glass of Côtes de Gascogne.

Across the seven gorgeous bedrooms, guests can expect the finest of features from Egyptian cotton linen and luxurious hotel-branded mattresses to exquisite décor with premium designer wallpaper and high-end furnishings and fabrics. Sleeping up to 14 adults and 6 children, the bedrooms have been cleverly designed with a range of king or super king-size doubles alongside a charming bunk-bed room as well as the option of discreet pull-out beds if required. Of course, each bedroom has its own en suite bathroom, some with Italian walk-in showers, others also featuring luxurious standalone baths.

Embrace the slow-paced life of the Gers as you gather around swimming pool for long lunches, then spend summery afternoons playing pétanque, croquet or other garden games beside the organic fruit trees and five acres of RHS designed wild gardens. Borrow the château’s bikes to cycle to the two local villages, one of which has a lovely Friday morning market, or drive just 20 minutes to Auch, the historic capital of Gascony by the banks of the Gers River.

Discover other atmospheric markets and wonderful restaurants serving the fine food of this region in Mirande, Lectoure and Fleurance or venture south towards Saint-Lary-Soulan and the Hautes-Pyrenees for yet more wonderful experiences surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery.

What you should know…

  • The château sleeps up to 20 people – a maximum of 14 adults and 6 additional children – please see the “Features” tab for details on each bedroom layout.
  • A family live on the estate, in the mill to the right of the château, and are there to greet you and to help look after the property when guests are present.

This home is a part of our Great Value and Heritage Collection!

This is a historic home, and as such:

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!

This idyllic 17th century château is in a tiny rural village with a neighbouring church, just over an hour west of Toulouse in the Gers department of southern France. It’s amazing to be able to be able to gaze over the undulating countryside landscapes towards the distant Pyrenees.

The nearest village with amenities is just a 5-minute drive away, home to a supermarket, pharmacy and traditional French restaurant open for lunch (and summer weekend evenings). There is also a pretty little market on a Friday morning showcasing some wonderful local produce such as cheeses, meats, pastries and, in the summer, artisan products. A larger supermarket is just a 5-minute drive in the other direction.

Of course, the Gers is all about dreamy landscapes of rolling hills, vineyards, summer sunflower fields and authentic French cuisine best experienced in local restaurants and atmospheric markets. It’s a paradise for cyclists too – you can request to use the château’s bikes or arrange e-bike hire for part or all of your stay.

Nearby Mirande (16km) is a picturesque market town not to be missed on a Monday morning whilst the famous town of Auch (21km), the historic capital of Gascony by the banks of the Gers, is a beautiful day out with its historic architecture, excellent restaurants, bars and twice-weekly traditional market.

A little further afield are the historic market towns of Lectoure, Fleurance and Condom, all reached in around an hour or less by car, whilst the trio of picture-perfect Gers villages, Larressingle, Montréal and Fourcès, are also worthy of a visit for their beauty and charm.

For a spectacular day out in the mountains, venture south to Saint-Lary-Soulan in the Hautes-Pyrenees close to the Spanish border. Here you will find superb hiking and biking opportunities as well as white-water rafting or simply enjoy the ambience of this attractive town with its spa, restaurants and inviting shops.

Region

A relatively new addition to France, the Midi-Pyrénées was created to surround the cultural capital of Toulouse in the late 1970s. You might think that its relative youth would mean the Midi-Pyrénées is short on character or identity, but remember, this is France we’re talking about – the whole country is steeped in history and tradition. Encompassing parts of Gascony, Languedoc, the Gers and several others, you’ll get a varied slice of the whole French experience here, not least if you stay at one of our beautiful chateaux in the Midi-Pyrénées! And if you want to discover the best of what the region has to offer, our Midi-Pyrénées travel guide is here to show you where to go, what to eat and how you can make the best of your break with some amazing activities.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

With the owners being parents themselves, they have lots of suggestions on how to keep your children occupied beyond the beautiful château, pool and gardens.

Around a 15-minute drive away, little ones will love the farm animals at Ferme Le Vallon des Rêves, open seasonal weekends (and six days a week in July and August) whilst older children may enjoy quad biking through the Gers landscapes just north of Auch.

South of Auch, adventurous families can spend time at Le Vert en l’air with its tree-top trails (age 6+), paintballing and horse-riding or venture south to N’CO Park, reached within a 45-minute drive, for more accrobranche activities, a play area for youngsters and a huge climbing tower and zip line for older children/teens/adults.

For a change of scene, Lac du Magnoac offers pretty nature walks, a summer inflatable water course as well as other water-based activities such as pedalo hire and paddle boards.

Owner Profile

When did you become the owner?

We bought the house in 2018 then renovated during the pandemic over the last 2-3 years. 

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?

My husband and I fell in love with the Gers region of France many years ago. Our frequent trips to the area provided the perfect antidote to the fast-paced life that we had in the Middle East, where we both had busy careers that involved a lot of travel. We felt so connected to the region that in 2012 we decided to get married here, at another beautiful chateau. After our wedding, we felt called to start searching for our own home to balance the bustle of the Middle East.

As soon as we came to visit Chateau Du Partage, we fell in love. The stunning 17th century features, 5 acres of grounds and boundless views of the Pyrenees were breathtaking. We stopped the search and after a long and arduous buying process, the chateau was finally ours at the end of 2018. The main chateau and surrounding buildings needed a lot of love poured into them and we started the renovation process just as the pandemic hit which was challenging, but worth it.

We’re so in love with this incredible sanctuary that we’re lucky enough to call home that we want to share it with others as the perfect destination to adventure, escape and unwind. Having Chateau Du Partage in our lives has been a dream come true and we can’t wait to share its magic with you. 

Are there any interesting stories in its history?

The chateau was previously owned by a famous musician and there is a recording studio on site. There were a few albums recorded there. 

For anyone coming to stay, is there anything you suggest that they really must do?

  • Absolutely gorgeous

    on 23/08/2023

    Absolutely gorgeous chateau! We stayed here over the summer and absolutely loved it. It's been refurbished to an incredibly high standard and is very well equipped with everything you'll need. The bedrooms are all very spacious with incredibly comfy beds. The location is great with shops, restaurants and a supermarket very nearby, which can be rare in rural France. Highly recommended and we can't wait to go back.

  • Exceptional standard

    on 22/08/2022

    The pictures shown do not do justice to this beautiful house. It has been finished to an exceptional standard. Chic but homely and comfortable. The beds and bedding are to die for. I still dream about being back in one of those comfy beds. The bathrooms are again super chic finished to very high standards (something that isn't always the case in old houses). For my birthday my family treated me to a dinner party catered by a private chef, what a special night that was. It is a house to totally unwind, whether enjoying the tranquil setting or running around after your grandchildren.

  • Heavenly

    on 11/02/2022

    I've stayed at Chateau Du Partage many times over the years, before and after the restoration. It has a really special place in our hearts. Sitting in the most beautiful rural part of The Gers, it is a stunning place to check-out of everyday life and find yourself somewhere heavenly. The grounds are gorgeous to explore or just sit in for a quiet moment to enjoy the view. So many nooks and crannies and perfect for a game of hide and seek! The restoration has been done exquisitely. With impeccable taste, the owners have really done this historic building superb justice. The bedrooms are stylishly furnished and everything has been thought of - I've had some of my best night sleeps in the chateau! I honestly can't recommend this place enough, for me it's my happy place and I can't wait to return.

  • Everything was perfect!

    on 14/10/2021

    What an incredible house! The property is so special that it feels like you are in a private boutique hotel!! Myself and my husband stayed at Chateau Du Partage with our children and had such a wonderful time. The house is stunning with beautiful decor and fantastic bedrooms and bathrooms. We were able to relax and enjoy the pool and the kids loved running around the huge garden. We enjoyed the local market towns and also found some great local kid friendly restaurants. Thanks for looking after us so well and we will definitely be back!
