An Exceptional 4 Bedroom Bearnaise Villa Close to the Market Town of Orthez

This exceptionally pretty, well proportioned, bearnaise villa, is conveniently situated close to the historic market town of Orthez, set within private gardens with views across the countryside and the Pyrenees mountains.


Property Overview


This exceptionally pretty, well proportioned, bearnaise villa, is conveniently situated close to the historic market town of Orthez, set within private gardens with views across country fields and the Pyrenees mountains.

The architect designed property was built in 1983 using reclaimed and hand-crafted materials; terracotta tiled floors, ceiling beams and a beautifully carved staircase with mezzanine gallery that blend seamlessly with the light and spacious design of modern day living. The ground floor plan flows around the staircase from the entrance hall through to a split-level salon with feature fireplace, following around to the dining room and modern fitted kitchen – each room benefitting from double french doors accessing the delightful gardens and terraces. A study, or fourth bedroom, can also be found on the ground floor, complete with a shower room and separate WC.

The first floor features the wood carved gallery, overlooking the entrance and salon, leading to three good size bedrooms and two shower rooms. Plumbing is in place for installing a third shower room, if desired. The entire property has undergone substantial renovations and a complete re-decoration in recent years and is now very beautifully presented.

Just a short drive from the town centre of Orthez, the property is accessed via electronic gates and a large entrance driveway leading through to a double garage. The villa sits in the middle of its half-acre gardens, which have been beautifully landscaped and maintained. The south elevation of the property, with shaded dining terraces, overlooks nearby fields with the town and Pyrenees mountains in the background.

Orthez boasts a wealth of cafés, shops and boutiques, a popular Tuesday morning market as well as access to the autoroute (at 5 minutes drive), for Pau, Biarritz and Toulouse. The TGV train line provides daily transport to Bordeaux and Paris. The nearest beaches at Biarritz and the ski slopes of the Pyrenees can all be reached within 1 hour,  Pau airport 40 minutes; Biarrtitz airport 50 minutes, St. Sébastian airport 90 minutes.
