Property Overview


For Sale

This authentic farmhouse, with its adjoining guest cottage, benefits from both total tranquility and the convenience of being just 5 minutes from the well-served market town of Monein, and 30 minutes from the historic city of Pau, its airport and its international school. 

Dating back to circa 1650, this ensemble boasts an authentic family home of 250m2 consisting of a private south-facing courtyard leading into the entrance hallway.  To the right is a small scullery, the dining room with its original large working fireplace, and a small office; to the left a dining kitchen which leads into a large sitting room with a monumental stone fireplace with wood-burning stove.  Large arched glass doors open into the courtyard and ensure that the room is naturally light.

A period oak staircase rises to the first floor landing with its authentic Béarnaise balcony.  This floor  offers a master bedroom suite consisting of a large bedroom with a cathedral ceiling of 4.7m, an en-suite shower room, a dressing room and a small library.  A second large bedroom of 32m2 and a family bathroom completes the first floor.  
The second floor currently houses a large entertaining room with bar, and an undeveloped, but insulated, attic space.  This area could easily be transformed into three additional and comfortable bedrooms.  

The guest cottage (105m2) is situated on the east side of the property and offers a large open plan kitchen and living room with large glass openings into a private garden.  The first floor offers a master bedroom with en-suite shower room; a double bedroom and a family bathroom. The second floor offers two further bedrooms one of which has en-suite bathroom. 

The ensemble sits in over one hectare of land with open 360º views with both dwellings benefitting from mature and private gardens.  A large 12x6m pool, installed in 2007, is ideally situated between the two dwellings offering a communal area to relax and enjoy the poolside views. 

This exceptional property would appeal to someone looking for a family home with an independant cottage for either an additional revenue, or for visiting friends and family; a peaceful rural location yet close to a well served market town and easily reachable to a city with its wider choice of schools and its airport. 
Pau is the capital city of the Pyrenees Atlantic and has an excellent choice of schools as well as offering leisure & sporting facilities such as rugby, basketball, handball, kayaking. The city plays an important role in the equestrian world, as well as playing host to an annual ‘Monaco style” Grand Prix and the Tour de France.
Gourette, the closest ski station can be reached in just under an hours drive & Biarritz on the Atlantic Coast is slightly over an hours drive. 

Viewing is highly recommended!
