Property Overview

FCH290

This secluded Manor House, in a pretty hill-top village is just 10 minutes from the market town of Orthez with its major supermarkets and commercial shopping centres, as well as being just 25 minutes from the beautiful historical and cultural centre of Pau. The ski slopes of the Pyrénées and the Atlantic Coast, around Biarritz can be reached within one hour, Pau airport 20 minutes; Biarritz airport one hour; Toulouse and Bordeaux airports 2 hours.

Steeped in a rich history, this grand house was constructed during the reign of Louis XIV and has been inhabited by nobles, merchants and traders throughout the centuries.  It has been professionally renovated & regenerated by the present owners to fulfill the high standards of present day living. The property is skirted by the Compostella Pilgrims’ route & the owners have chosen to take advantage of this by running a hugely successful Chambres d’Hotes welcoming walkers from around the world into their home during the summer months.

The Manor House has retained its period atmosphere and boasts a wealth of original features; oak carved internal doors and paneling, period fireplaces, exposed beamed ceilings and a wide oak staircase, whilst offering the comforts of modern life; mains gas central heating and seven large en-suite bedrooms, all with “power showers”. The private grounds of 2 100m² include intimate courtyards, sunny terraces and a large terraced swimming pool.

All essential amenities, as well as cafés and restaurants are within walking distance, and the Manor House enjoys a privileged position, with uninterrupted views across the countryside and woods from the terrace, garden and swimming pool.
