This is an exceptional property in an exceptional location. Set deep in the “Parc Naturel Régional des Pyrénées Ariègeoises” the hill-top estate has a dominant position facing the 3000 metre Mont Valier massif. A never-ending vista of forest-covered hills and valleys stretches away to the south before terminating in the high peaks of the Central Pyrénées.

The property takes the form of a large farmhouse with around 480m² of living space on 3 levels. This building has been developped into a luxury six-bedroomed house with quality fixtures and fittings. Another building – an older farmhouse – is adjacent to the main farmhouse and is awaiting renovation. Planning permission has been sought and accorded – not an easy feat in a National Park where no new buildings may be constructed. These two magnificent stone and brick-built houses stand on the top of the estate and face south towards the mountains. Gardens with fruit trees and lawns surround the buildings and include a beautiful pool with views of the high peaks.

The main house is exploited as a ‘very big gite’, that is to say, a holiday rental which can accommodate more than 15 guests. Thanks to its variety of bedrooms – ranging from ground-floor disabled-access rooms to a top floor dormitory – the premises can accommodate 22 guests in style. All year round. The excellent insulation and efficient oil-fired central-heating mean that the gite can be let out for Christmas, February holidays or summer without problem. Each of the six main bedrooms have their own en-suite bathrooms, some have views of the mountains and one has access to a generous balcony.

The key to this property probably lies in the ‘other’ building: an old farmhouse that needs a lot of work but which has a number of features typical of the region: wooden balcony, open loft and classic flooring. Planning permission and architect’s plans are included in the sale.

Our opinion

Currently run remotely (the owners live in the city) there are a number of options open to a buyer: run it as is and live elsewhere: turn it into a upmarket B&B and use 5 of the ensuite bedrooms as guest rooms … or, work on the adjacent farmhouse to create a marvellous three-bedroomed home while continuing to let out the big 22-person gite. For buyers who are looking to combine a total lifestyle-change with a successful business then this is surely the solution.

This is an excellent business for someone looking for a total lifestyle-change, a decent income and the opportunity to trenovate a beautiful old dwelling.
