An Imposing Village Manor House

6 Beds; Vibrant and Well Supported Village; Ski Slopes 20 mins Drive


This Imposing Manor house beautifully epitomizes local architecture with its natural slate roof and its carved stonework surrounding the entrance door and windows.  It is situated on the edge of its vibrant village at the entrance to the Vallée d’Aspe, an area rich in tradition and natural beauty. Inside the property offers spacious accommodation over three floors with three reception rooms, the kitchen and a sunroom on the ground floor.  The property has been divided into two areas, accessed by separate staircases, to allow the current owners to run a small Bed & Breakfast business whilst maintaining a private area, for themselves.  

This village is young and vibrant throughout the year; it has a very good primary school and all necessary daily amenities. The village has a renowned and well-supported rugby team and is host to the National Junior Championships. The villagers also actively supports its ‘Fête de Berger’; a long weekend celebration of the sheep returning from the mountains after the long summer months.  The fête is well attended and includes sheep dog trials, local cheese, wine and craft stalls and festivities leading into the small hours. This ‘shepherds’ tradition’ is carried throughout the year with weekly village-run ‘shepherds meals’ of omelets, bacon and cheese and of course, the traditional weekly farmers’ market.  For someone searching proximity to the mountains with its out-door pursuits of cross country skiing, snow shoe walking, canoeing, bird watching, horse-riding etc., this property has the perfect location. The villagers also take advantage of the regular bus route up to the mountains so they can enjoy a few glasses of vin chaud at the end of a day’s skiing. Other local activities include an adventure park with suspended forest, and Grade A fishing in the local rivers.  

Located 45 minutes from the beautiful historic city of Pau; 20 minutes from the ski slopes of the Pyrenees and the Spanish border and just over one hour from the Atlantic coast beaches. Pau airport 50 minutes; Tarbes/Lourdes airport 1hour; Biarritz airport 90 mins and Toulouse airport 2 1/2 hours.
