A restored 18th century country residence of 252m2, set in the heart of the rolling Madiran wine district and yet with good communication links to the historic city of Pau, Bordeaux and the Atlantic coast, around Biarritz. This Béarnaise property has immense charm and yet, unlike many older properties has plenty of natural daylight filtering into its unusually large rooms. The Estate includes the six bedroom house, an adjoining former pig sty, a large barn (6x25m) and a wonderful Pigeonnier (dovecote) with colombage walls dressed with Toulousiane brick. These outbuildings would convert into very interesting self contained cottages.
A Covered Dining Terrace leads off from the kitchen and connects to the Former Pig Sty. The large barn measures 6.3x25m and has a tiled roof, cement floor and water and electricity in-situ. Connecting to the larger barn is a wonderful former Pigeonnier (Dovecote) with colombage walls dressed with Toulousiane brick. To the rear of this Pigeonnier is the majority of the 2 hectares of land.
Located just 20 minutes from the beautiful historic city of Pau ; 90 minutes from both the ski slopes of the Pyrénées and the lively cosmopolitan coastal resort of Biarritz and the Spanish border, this property is ideally placed to suit either a main residence or a holiday home. Pau airport 20 minutes; Tarbes/Lourdes airport 45 minutes; Bordeaux airport 90 minutes; Toulouse airport 2 hours
