This is the sort of property which ticks many of our customers’ boxes: comfortable family home, income-generating gites, heated pool, plenty of land, no visible neighbours, no work needed, views of the mountains … and within walking distance of a village with cafés, restaurants, chemist and doctor!
The main house is a renovated farmhouse with a wonderful farm kitchen/living area taking up most of the ground floor. Sophisticated wood-burners heat not just this space but also the rooms above. Upstairs there’s two double bedrooms and a family bathroom for guests and then on the top floor the master bedroom/loft with its own ensuite and balcony. The whole house has been renovated with taste and style: the roof and insulation is brand new.
The big gite is housed in an extension of the main farmhouse: they are separated by a laundry room and shower/toilet area. The gite is all open stonework and whitewash and ancient bread-oven; lots of charm hiding a functional and well-equipped kitchen/diner on the ground floor. Two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. Loft space as yet unconverted. There’s a private terrace which overlooks the forest.
The small(er) gite is set back from the other buildings on the edge of the forest. It is a bijou dwelling which has been hand-crafted to a high level of comfort. The lay-out is simple: downstairs lounge and kitchen, upstairs bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor … but the views from every window and from the balcony make this a very special place and favourite with guests.
But that’s not all! Other out-buildings on the 8 hectares of land include a woodstore, a gardening shed, a delightful Finnish Sauna and a spacious garage/workshop. And the heated, pool, of course, with its views of the Mont Valier Massif and the surrounding forest.
Yes, the forest is omnipresent: not your grim dark coniferous Alpine-style forest but a bright green deciduous mix of beech and ash. This vegetation allows one to appreciate the seasons as the colours change through spring, summer and autumn.
There are a lot of good things about this property which we have already pointed out. Buyers will also appreciate the 8 hectares (about 20 acres) of land which surrounds the dwellings. This could be used to place chalets or yurts if one wished to boost accommodation for retreats or ‘camping à la ferme’. There is a spring on the land which runs all year round and is channelled into fish ponds on the land. One could even open up a couple of guest rooms in the main house as part of a select B&B. Finally, it’s in the high Pyrenees a few minutes from a number of famous Tour de France climbs: it would make an excellent cycling centre. In short: it’s the sort of property one just has to visit to appreciate the multiple possibilities it offers.
