A delightful former convent, built in 1910 which has been fully renovated, set in an elevated position with 360 degrees views of the Pyrenees. The property offers two dwellings and sits at the entrance of a quiet village, yet not far from towns with all amenities. An over ground pool and two idyllic terraces offer the perfect summer break. For someone considering a move to France but requiring a local income, this property would be ideal, as it is currently divided into two separate homes, allowing one dwelling to earn a rental income ... or simply providing independent accommodation for visiting guests. The property was re-wired and a new micro-station replaced the old septic tank in 2015.
The Pay Basque area, rich in culture and history, is ideally situated approximately one hour from the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean and one hour from the ski slopes of the Pyrénées. Skiing, horse-riding, cycling and hiking are the hobbies easily executed in this area. The local town of Mauléon-Licharre offers restaurants, cafés, boutiques, butchers, an organic shop and three supermarkets. The Col d'Osquiche is only a short drive away and leads to either Spain or the coast in 40 minutes. Pau airport can be reached within 60 minutes, Biarritz airport 60-75 minutes; Toulouse and Bordeaux airports are a 2.5 hours drive.
