Set on a promontory, to the front of a tiny hamlet, the property has a dramatic outlook, with 180-degree views over descending parkland to a backdrop of cedar and oak woods. In clear conditions the Pyrenees can be seen on the southern horizon.
The well-maintained hamlet is one of the smallest villages in the Gers with a population of 45 and with occasional cultural events in the restored church.
Entrance to the property is via a gated archway set across a circular lawn from the main building. The main, east façade has a perfect symmetry, with three arched doorways below an imposing stone pediment bearing the coat of arms of the Marquis of Mauleon, royal guard of Louis XVI. The current ownership extends back 30 years.
The tomb of the marquis de Mauléon is in the hamlet's church of Saint Augustin.
