Authentic 6 Bedroom Family Home close to the Compostela Pilgrims Route

The first floor has four large en-suite bedrooms and a linen room. There are period fireplaces in two bedrooms, along with exposed floor boards. The third floor would benefit from finishing touches to two bedrooms and a shower room. The house has been double glazed to the South and South East side, and the bedrooms facing East and North, keeping in with the style of the property. A graveled terrace in front of the house presents that typical French style dining area.

An independent studio, or further accommodation could be created above the utility (~ 25m2) and the huge attic ( ~ 114m2) could also be transformed into further living space or a games room.

The market town of Saint Palais offers various restaurants, bars, supermarkets, tennis, swimming pool, horse riding, a museum, cinema, hospital and many local festivals.  Conveniently located for access under one hour to the Atlantic coast, the Pyrenees mountains and the international airport at Biarritz. The airport at Pau is just over one hour away, Bordeaux airport 2 hours and Toulouse 2.5 hours.
