This charming Farmhouse and Guest Cottage is set in 10 hectares of land and benefits from a discrete location on the edge of the Vallée d’Ossau, an area rich in culture and natural beauty.

The Estate includes the four bedroom Stone Farmhouse; a 3 /4 bedroom Converted Barn; a 6 x 11m swimming pool and 10 hectares of land bordering a small river.
Dating back to the ninetieth century, the property was bought and renovated by its current owners some fifteen years ago. The stone farmhouse offers accommodation over three levels with the main entrance opening into a large living room with its original stone fireplace and ‘evier’. The kitchen is located to the rear of the property and opens onto a large dining terrace, which overlooks the immediate lawns and the woods. Two bedrooms, a shower room, a dressing room and a separate wc are found on the first floor and a further two bedrooms with a shower room on the second floor.
The ground floor of the converted barn houses a large utility and a boiler room used by the main farmhouse. A separate entrance then leads into the Guest Cottage, the ground floor of which has a bedroom with en-suite shower room and a large open plan kitchen / living room with insert fireplace opening onto a private terrace. The first floor opens onto a large mezzanine and has two further bedrooms and a bathroom.
For someone searching total tranquility and a ‘protected’ retreat, this is the perfect house and yet it is just 5 minutes on foot from its local Auberge restaurant.
