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.

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.
