A Stunning Water Mill in most Beautiful Tranquil Location

2HA; 4-5 Bedrooms; Close to Amenities; Idyllic Environment


An immaculately presented spacious (approx. 200m2) and light-filled former water mill, dating back to the 17th and 18th Century, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, offering a perfect family or holiday home, or the possibility to produce a rental income.  The mill is nicely nestled next to the river Aspe and approximately 10 minutes from the lively market town of Oloron-Sainte-Marie, close to the ski station La Pierre Saint Martin.

The property has been fully renovated, with more accommodation, matching the old style of the mill, added in 2012. Currently one part of the mill is rented out for holiday accommodation, providing a family bedroom (master and kids bedroom with shower room), a large salon with wood burner and a light-filled kitchen diner (27m2) on the ground floor. The salon offers access to the inner court yard. On the first floor is a third bedroom, with an en-suite offering a shower, bath, double wash basin and toilet. The new living area provides a kitchen, salon diner with wood burner, a bedroom and shower room on the ground floor, and the master bedroom with its en-suite is on the first floor.

The property has several balconies, an inner courtyard and sits in 20000m2 of private grounds, from where views to the river, rolling country side and forest can be enjoyed. The Roman stone bridge, which belongs and gives access to the property, and the cascades can be overlooked from the terraces and balconies. Swimming in the river is a “must” in the summer, as well as dining and picnicking on the meadow.

The mill is very close to ski stations, the Atlantic coast and several touristic towns and villages, as well as Spain. Distance to airports: Pau under 1 hour, Tarbes-Loures 1h20, Biarritz 1h30, Bordeaux and Toulouse 2h30.
