An Immaculately Presented Manor House On the Compostella Pilgrims Route

Hugely Successful B&B Business; Swimming Pool; 2 Barns


Secluded behind high walls and wrought iron gates, this impeccable 17th century Manor House is subtly screened from the gentle bustle of day to day life in this pretty village just 10 minutes from the market town of Orthez and 25 minutes from the beautiful historical city of Pau.  The ski slopes of the Pyrénées and the Atlantic Coast, around Biarritz can be reached within one hour, Pau airport 20 minutes; Biarritz airport one hour; Toulouse and Bordeaux airports 2 hours.

Steeped in a rich history, this grand house was constructed during the reign of Louis XIV and has been inhabited by nobles, merchants and traders throughout the centuries. At present, having been professionally refurbished in 2007 by its current owners, the property offers chambres d’hôtes for the discerning holidaymaker as well as providing a comfortable home for its’ owners. 

The Manor House has retained its period atmosphere and boasts a wealth of original features; oak carved internal doors and paneling, period fireplaces, exposed beamed ceilings and a wide oak staircase, whilst offering the comforts of modern life; mains gas central heating and seven large en-suite bedrooms, all with “power showers” (bedrooms 3 and 4 sharing an adjoining bathroom). The private grounds of 2 100m² include intimate courtyards, sunny terraces and a large terraced swimming pool.

Situated in the centre of a village (on the pilgrims’ route to Santiago) offering all the essential amenities, as well as cafés and restaurants within walking distance, the Manor House enjoys a privileged position, with uninterrupted views across the countryside and woods from the terrace, garden and swimming pool.
