€ 185,000*Property For Sale, Oloron Ste Marie, Pyrenées Atlantique, Aquitaine.FCH360

An Early 19C Béarnaise Village House, situated in the Foothills of the Pyrenees

6 Bed Béarnaise Village House; Close to Ski Station La Pierre St. Martin


This lovely village house is situated in a quiet neighbourhood, close to the ski station La Pierre St. Martin, surrounded by pine forests, in the Baretous valley.  Also closely situated next to Oloron-Sainte-Marie, with easy access to all amenities, like shops, doctors, schools, bars and restaurants, where nearby activities include skiing, hiking, cycling, canoeing, hang-gliding, horse riding and kayaking. 

Living accommodation is provided over two floors and includes six bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor, with beautiful views from the bedrooms. A large salon, kitchen, utility and a shower room are situated on the ground floor. The garage (30m2) provides plenty of storage space. The garden is easy to maintain and offers the possibility to install a swimming pool. Hot water is provided by solar panels (and electric as back up). There are two heating methods : a wood burner in the salon and radiators in the bedrooms heated by an oil fired boiler. The property is deceptively spacious but would benefit from some gentle upgrading.

Weekly markets are held in several local towns nearby and there are also plenty of annual festivals throughout the summer months.  This property makes it ideal for those requiring nature, with local amenities close by. The Baretous valley is between the Aspe valley to the East and the Soule to the West (one of the provinces of the French Basque Country). Located on the border of the Béarn, it is connected with the Basque Country and Spain.
