The Château of Aubiry is a historic listed monument, at the foothill of the Catalan Pyrenees. This genuine palace in a magnificent setting was built between 1893 and 1904 by the Danish architect Viggo Dorph Petersen for the industrialist Jean Bardou, the inventor of JOB cigarette papers. This architectural marvel consists of thirty rooms, extends over 2,500m2, comprises fourteen bedrooms and a 750m2 wine cellar. Its luxurious style is characteristic of the turn of the twentieth century, in a neo-Renaissance style with neo-Baroque elements. The chateau was built by the best craftsmen of that time using only the finest materials. Worked pink marble, delicate marquetery, precious stained glass, exceptional mosaics, plasterwork, everything emanates splendour and enchantment. The abundant art nouveau interior decoration is just stunning, with frescoes pained by the artist Paul Gervais, who also painted the wedding room of the Capitole in Toulouse, the frescoes in the Négresco Palace in Nice and the Hôtel de Paris in Biarritz. The château is a genuine domain, surrounded by English style grounds of 7 hectares. The grounds include diverse pavilions, a chapel, a gate lodge, a former swimming pool, terraces and incredible greenhouses. The latter were inspired by Eiffel and are typical of the metallic architecture from the beginning of the 20th century: three 16-m-tall glass domes to be restored are connected by long galleries, measuring 108 metres long altogether. Just 30 minutes from the beach, from Perpignan and from Spain, on the famous commune of Céret, holiday home for Picasso, Braque or Chagall, the Château of Aubiry is an exceptional work of art for hosting an enterprise foundation, a cultural, museum or events project, or simply as an extraordinary home.
