This magnificent ancient secular abbey, referenced in 1327 in the Pamplona archives, is steeped in history. It is one of the three noble secular abbeys of Soule in the Basque Country. Five lines of lords succeeded each other at the "Château", where the mother of the famous captain of the Musketeers, the Count of Tréville, hero of the Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas was born.

The Manor overlooking the most beautiful mountains of the Soule has undergone a complete upscale professional renovation which has brought back its beauty and charm.

Over three floors, accommodation comprises on the ground floor of a reception room with a magnificent archer, a mosaic floor designed by the mosaic artist of the Bardo Museum in Tunis, as well as a frieze surrounding the terracotta tiles. A large kitchen-dining room with stove piano adjoins a sitting room and billiard room, the floors of which have been restored using Sarrancolin marble, the same used at the Palace of Versailles and the Opéra Garnier. A bedroom or an office, laundry room, shower room and workshop complete the ground floor.

With its large imposing staircase, with well conceived direct and indirect lighting, the Manor offers at first floor level a large bedroom with en suite shower room enjoying a triple exposure, office, bedroom with en suite shower room , master bedroom with Louis XV style bathroom, and dressing room.

The second floor includes a gallery, impressive library as well as a very large office with bathroom, enjoying a triple exposure. The walls are covered with a magnificent custom built library with integrated lighting. A home cinema is on the third floor.

The thick walls were all painted with lime and natural pigments, all the windows are heavily doubled glazed. The existing mullion windows have been restored with mouth-blown stained glass. The electricity has been completely updated. The heating system includes a gas boiler for central heating with a tank buried in the garden, and two pellet burning stoves. The property is connected to the mains drainage system.
