A Deceptively Large Village House with River Frontage & Guest Cottage

A Delightful 17C Former Water Mill & Guest Cottage; 7 Beds; Village location ; Rental from Gite


A picturesque 17C former water mill situated in the heart of its village over-looking its neighbouring trout river.  The mill stream was diverted away from the Mill many years ago and the only evidence remaining are the arches beneath the building.  The property and its neighbouring gite have been artistically renovated to create a charming family home and an income source from the gîte. The property is well situated with easy access to the beautiful Valley d’Ossau and Gourette ski resort.

Accommodation is provided over three floors with the ground floor being open plan but still maintaining clearly defined sitting room / dining room / kitchen areas as well as providing additional quiet corners for reflection !  The ground floor leads through French doors to a raised terrace overlooking the garden and river.  The utility and separate cloakroom area are also on the ground floor.  The First Floor offers five double bedrooms (one of which serves as an upstairs salon) and a charming bathroom with victorian bath, corner shower and built-in cupboard.  The Second Floor (Attic) has been converted to provide two further double bedrooms and a large area offering additional family space. 

The guest cottage / gîte sits alongside the main property and offers an open plan living area with kitchen, a double bedroom and a private garden.  It offers an additional income source throughout the year. 

This attractive property has been realistically priced and has huge appeal.  It is well placed for all local amenities including a primary school, two grocery shops, a butchers, pharmacy, restaurant, pizza takeaway and has local buses that go directly into Pau and the mountains.   As the river contains trout, fishing licenses are available locally so you could even catch your own dinner from the comfort of your garden !  Pau and Lourdes Airport are 40 minutes and 1 hour away respectively.
