Chateau de Projan is set in 10 hectares of lush landscape and is at the crest of a hill which gives 360° panoramic views of the Gers, the vineyards of Madiran and the stunning Pyrénées chain of mountains.
Chateau de Projan was a medieval tower in the 11th century which was extensively rebuilt first in the 15th century and, later, in the 18th. In the 18th Projan had an extensive vineyard. It produced wine which was sent to the local market town of Aire sur l’Adour where it was shipped down the Adour river to the port of Bayonne. From there the wine was taken to the Netherlands.
In 1986 the Chateau was bought by the famous international architect Bernard Vichet. He fell in love with the Chateau and its location at first sight. He created his unique design for the Chateau combining original 18th century features such as mirrors and armoires with art works drawn from his own art collection of Pre-Raphaelite, cubist and Art Deco sculptures and paintings.
