A typical Basque farmhouse, built in 1893, which has been beautifully renovated, set in total privacy, yet not isolated, at the end of a country lane. The property offers spacious accommodation with an attached barn for further accommodation development, and provides access to an upper terrace. The views all around are beautiful, overlooking forests, prairies and the Pyrénées. With absolute privacy, walking and skiing opportunities, in the foothills, this property is an absolute gem. The neighbouring village is 3km away, providing all amenities from pharmacy, butchers, bakers, garage to bars and restaurants, including a gourmand rank Michelin restaurant.
The Pays Basque area, rich in culture and history, is ideally situated approximately one hour from the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean and one hour from the ski slopes of the Pyrénées. Skiing, horse-riding, cycling and hiking are the hobbies easily executed in this area. The local town of Mauléon-Licharre offers restaurants, cafés, boutiques, butchers, an organic shop and three supermarkets. The markets with local produce are not to be missed, once a week in the Haute Ville and once a week in the Basse Ville, which is overlooked by the Chateau de Mauléon. The Béarnaise town of Oloron-Sainte-Marie is 30 minutes away and in the opposite direction the ski resort La Pierre Saint Martin and Spain are easily accessed in 45 minutes.
