Common Spaces

The chateau has a recently renovated grand salon with a large kitchen and dining area, and an adjoining outdoor terrace with a gas barbecue, comfortable seating and a covered dining area.

Hidden from view are steps leading to a sun-soaked terrace containing a spacious heated swimming pool, a newly added summer kitchen with plancha for alfresco dining, a pool house with showers and toilets, sun loungers, parasols, and tables for poolside relaxation.

Location

The chateau and its outbuildings are nestled on eight private hectares just 10 minutes from Boé and 15 minutes from Agen, the Lot-et-Garonne’s bustling capital city. Located nearly equidistant from Bordeaux (90 miles) and Toulouse (70 miles), Agen can be reached by motorway and TGV train.

We are also located just five minutes from two French villages, Moirax and Laplume. Moirax is home to the famous Cluniac abbey founded in the 11th century and Laplume is a picturesque village perched on a hill with views extending to the border of the Gers to the south. There are a variety of beautiful villages nearby that we highly recommend including Lectoure, Romieu, Nerac, Fourcès, Condom, and Montéal.

History

Located between Moirax and La Romieu in the hamlet of Brimont, Chateau de Lassalle was once a lordship in the Bruilhois viscounty in the jurisdiction of Laplume. There is not much left of the old castle as the buildings were reworked and transformed over the centuries, resulting in the current building footprint constructed between the mid to end of the 18th century. The stone vaults in the outbuildings and the stone wall marking the edge of the west garden are estimated to be from the 11th century, where part of the outbuilding was likely a guard room of which three levels still remain. Having primarily been a family home until the late twentieth century, the château was transformed into a hotel and events venue in the late 1990s and obtained its 4-star rating in 2012. The property was acquired by the current owners, Christina and Sassan Aminzadeh in 2022, and is currently being brought back to life as their home and holiday rental and wedding/conference venue.

Chateau de Lassalle was purchased in February 2022 by Sassan & Christina Aminzadeh. Iranian and American by birth, the couple met and married while living and juggling their corporate careers in the United Kingdom. After searching for their ideal French property for several years, they fell in love with Chateau de Lassalle and now look forward to sharing this historic property with their guests, family and friends.

The couple first appeared in the British TV programme ChateauDIY as “chateau shoppers” in 2021 before they found Chateau de Lassalle. The adventure begins in Series 2 episodes 11 and 12. The story continues in Series 3, where they appear in episodes 7, 21, 22, and 23 which covers moving into the chateau, installing an irrigation system for the orchard, replacing the pool tiles, creating an inviting terrace space for guests and transforming the grand salon. The couple also featured in the Chateau DIY at Christmas special in 2023 and in Series 4, Episodes 23, 24, 25 which aired in the UK in February 2024. They will continue their journey in series 5, which is currently being filmed.
