Château de Briat

Château de Briat

The chateau de Briat, in the heart of the vineyards of Armagnac, in Gascony, is 1h30 from Bordeaux. This charming manor house, built by the mother of King Henri IV, is surrounded by a park of 60 hectares planted with vineyards and woods. The Briat estate still produces Armagnac according to the ancestral tradition of its owners, which you can discover during a private visit of the cellar. Briat offers you more than a simple stay, but a unique experience through time! And to relax: a large swimming pool, a tennis court and a vegetable garden. The castle can comfortably accommodate 16 people. The renovated barn can accommodate weddings of 150 people. Briat is an exceptional place to spend a family vacation in summer or winter, to gather with friends for a weekend, or to organize a wedding or a large family celebration.

The castle of Briat was built in 1540 by Jeanne d’Albret, mother of the future king Henri IV. In 1587, the king made a gift of it to Arnaud de Matines, who had saved his life at the battle of Coutras. The château then passed through the hands of various families before becoming the property of Baron Raoul de Pichon-Longueville in 1864. He was already the owner of the famous vineyard that bears his name in the Médoc region of Pauillac, and he was able to enrich the traditional know-how of Armagnac.
Since 1864, Briat has always remained in the Pichon-Longueville family. Stéphane de Luze, the current owner and descendant of the Pichon-Longueville family, perpetuates the family tradition accumulated at Briat for five generations in the production of Armagnac. In 2012, with his wife, a fashion and fabric designer, he changed the decoration of the castle and carried out work creating bathrooms in each room, and redid the kitchen. He renovated the barn to make a beautiful reception room, and nicely equipped a small guest house.

Activities around

The chateau de Briat in Mauvezin d’Armagnac in the Landes in Nouvelle Aquitaine, is in the heart of Gascony, bordering the Gers. Located in the center of a triangle Bordeaux – Biarritz – Toulouse, Briat is only 40 km from Mont de Marsan, a beautiful medieval city, 40 km from Condom in the Gers, and 90 km from Pau.
The village of Mauvezin d’Armagnac is a beautiful bastide founded by the King of England. It has some very beautiful medieval half-timbered houses decorated with brickwork. A cloak and dagger movie setting!
8 minutes from Briat by car, or 30 minutes by bike on the Voie Verte through the forest, discover Labastide d’Armagnac. This small bastide, founded in the 13th century, is a model of its kind, with its central square, which, it is said, inspired the Place des Vosges in Paris, its half-timbered houses, columns and arcades, and its church-fortress which crowns the whole.
10 minutes from Briat, you can access the spa of Barbotan, specialized in phlebology and rheumatology.
A little further on, discover the Roman Villa of Séviac, which is a perfect example of the Gallo-Roman architecture of the residences of notables of the IVth century. Famous for its 625 m2 of mosaics, the largest set in France, or its 500 m2 thermal baths which testify to the refinement of the daily life of the Gallo-Roman elites.
In the surroundings, the circular village of Fourcès has been classified as one of the “Most Beautiful Villages of France”. You can meet there in the shade of the plane trees to have a party, play petanque, attend concerts, or go bargain hunting…
The medieval city of Mont de Marsan conceals some treasures, the most famous of which is the Lacataye keep, a powerful crenellated tower.
Between wild rivers and prehistoric sites, enter the universe of the Landes! Because a castle cannot be dissociated from its land and its history, Briat has many things to whisper to you…
