A delightful 17th century ‘ferme Landaise’ and accompanying gite set in 1 hectare of pastoral paradise. This ancient farm house is situated at the end of a tree lined country lane and was lovingly restored to a high standard. Many of its original features remain, such as period floor tiles, stone fire place, exposed oak timbers and functioning bread oven. This residence is spacious yet retains a genuine homely feel with its impressive entrance hall/living room at its heart, giving access to the dining room and bedrooms and also garden terraces. The vast attic space has been modernised and presently exists as a single open space (guest bedroom), but could easily be divided up for further bedrooms, study, games room etc.
A large terrace of locally quarried paving stone enjoys views across the garden to the pool and forest beyond, with no sites or sounds of the outside world, it makes for a truly peaceful place to unwind and relax.
The charming 2 bedroom gite, built using sympathetic and authentic materials, and in keeping with the spirit of the older house, is well equipped with all the modern conveniences. Although not far from the main house it sits in a secluded position and also enjoys views of the garden and surrounding woodland.
The Pyrenees mountains offering all sorts of varied activities such as skiing, hiking, rafting and cycling and the Atlantic coast with its far reaching beaches and world renowned surf are within an hours drive, as are the international airports of Biarritz and Pau. Bordeaux and Toulouse airports are a two hour drive.
