An historic 17th Century village property, formerly a convent and a school run by nuns, this large private home is set in a beautiful village location with stunning views across the countryside from its elevated position.
The Convent has undergone gentle tranformation to provide the current owners with private accomodation on the ground floor featuring a vast, open plan sitting and dining room (89.5m2) with doors opening onto the rear terrace and gardens. Three independent apartments, of which two are registered with “Gites de France”, provide an income opportunity, plus two further bedrooms and a mezzanine salon can all be found on the first floor of the property. The double height chapel, with its stained glass window remains to be restored and provides a humbling reminder to this grand buildings’ origins.
The Convent overlooks the village church and park to the front, separated by an esplanade of plane trees. To the east side, across from the gardens is the popular village petanque court. This charming village provides a good level of local commerce and a café restaurant, with the larger towns of Riscle and Aire sur l’Adour at 10 and 18 kilometres, respectivley. The A65 Autoroute is at 15 minutes, making access to Pau airport a comfortable 45 minute drive.
