A Laàs Castle was initially built in the beginning of the 15th century. In the beginning of the 17th century the seigniory of Laàs, at the time the property of Jean de Laàs, comrade-in-arms of King Henri IV, is elevated to a barony, one of the 17 of baronies of Bearn.
The nowadays castle was built in the 17th century.
The chateau sits in the middle of a 12 hectares park featuring gardens "à la française", an "Italian" garden, little ponds and centennial trees.
The castle houses one of the most beautiful art collections in the Aquitaine region of France including paintings by Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun, Breughel, Rubens, Fragonard, as well as tapestries and furniture dating from the 17th and 18th century (including the bed Napoleon slept after the battle of Waterloo).
The castle is on the territory of Laas village that was declared (tongue in cheek) by its mayor a "principality". Read more...
