The Old French Bakery


5 bed Character Property; 2 Bed Gite; Large Adjoining Barn; Plunge Pool; Countryside Views


PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Perched on the top on a hill next to its village church, this deceptively spacious property once served as the village bakery.  Its large bread oven now offers, not only a beautiful feature in the current dining room, but also a functional oven to cook bread or pizzas whilst entertaining. The Estate, offered for sale, includes the five bedroom former bakery and an independent two bedroom gîte or guest cottage. The house is situated in the heart of the Jurançon wine region with open views of the surrounding countryside from its dominant position and yet is only a 3 minute drive into its neighbouring town of Monein.

Accommodation is offered over two floors.  The main entrance opens into a large and recently fitted, dining kitchen; to the left is a corridor leading to a living room with a formal dining area in front of the bread oven. Upstairs there are five light and spacious bedrooms and a family bathroom. 

Furthermore, the Estate includes an independent two bedroom gîte of 57m2 ; an adjoining barn serving as a large workshop and 2,000m2 of private gardens with a plunge pool.

The area is a perfect tourist destination; the local market town is just 3 minutes away and the 14th century fortified town of Navarrenx, renowned for its art galleries and brocantes, is a 15 minutes drive.  The beautiful historic city of Pau is just 20 minutes away and the ski slopes of the Pyrénées, the Atlantic coast and the Spanish border can be reached in less than an hour. Nearby activities include golf (Pau being home to the first golf course built in Europe), white water rafting, skiing, kayaking, canoeing, hang-gliding, horse-riding and fishing.  Pau airport 30 minutes; Biarritz airport 1 hour; Bordeaux airport 2 hours.
