La Vieille Tour, or the Old Tower, is the oldest part of Chateau de Senescau. It has enormous character. Large windows offer fine views towards the Pyrénées.
The open-plan kitchen / living / dining area is fully equipped and very comfortable, with a satellite TV and a DVD player. The kitchen area includes an oven with a spit, grill, and stovetop, and a fridge; washing and drying facilities are available close by.
La Vieille Tour is just a few steps from the swimming pool and has a terrace with patio furniture, a barbecue, and panoramic views. The house is situated amid 25 acres (10 hectares) of gardens, orchards, woodland and m...eadow, with a T-shaped swimming pool with a covered terrace. The house and the pool face southwards across the valley of the river Adour to its source in the Pyrénées.
There is much to enjoy on the property, including shaded walkways, a boules pitch, table tennis, bicycles and plenty of room for children to play.
Vineyards border the property to the north and are dotted throughout the local landscape. Guests are free to walk in the grounds or explore the local area, which has been described as France’s secret garden, with rolling countryside overflowing with sunflowers, fruit and vegetables.
With plenty to do on the property, and lots to explore in the region, La Vieille Tour is an ideal place to do as much or as little as the mood takes. The area is still largely undiscovered and the people are warm and friendly and with Bordeaux, Toulouse, Biarritz, Spain and the Pyrénées all within easy reach, there is a lot of choice for an adventure or two!
During the year several festivals are held nearby including the Country Music Festival in Mirande and the Tempo Latino Festival in Vic Fezensac in July and the International Jazz Festival in Marciac in August.
The Tour de France is always worth visiting which frequently passes near by in the month of July.
