This Charming Béarnaise Ensemble is situated in the Parc National des Pyrénées, on the edge of the Vallée d’Ossau, an area rich in culture and natural beauty. Benefitting from truly spectacular views of unspoiled countryside and the Pyrenees mountains; this property offers an idyllic peaceful retreat with the only sounds being of wildlife and cow bells. For someone searching total tranquillity and spectacular surrounding countryside, this is the perfect house …and yet it is just 5 minutes from its local village of Arudy and 20 minutes from the beautiful historic city of Pau.
The Ensemble includes the four bedroom farmhouse; a one bedroom adjoining gîte and a substantial four bedroom independent gîte. Originally built in1838 and renovated some 10 years ago to include double glazed windows; a new economical heating system; re-wiring and insulation. The Farmhouse beautifully epitomizes local architecture with its natural slate roof and its carved stonework surrounding the entrance door and windows. Inside, the current owners have cleverly married together the farmhouse’s original features with an imaginative flair to create a unique family home. This imaginative flair extends into the grounds where there are themed gardens, each displaying rare plants which offer an array of colours throughout the year. Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the location and presentation.
