Overlooking the village green, a short walk to all facilities, this charming 3-bedroom stone cottage needs restoration but has lots of potential. It has a pretty, shaded courtyard and small garden to the rear.
To the right of the entrance hall is a small sitting room with original fireplace and oak floor. Ahead is the living/dining room (approx 21.5m2) with part-glazed door opening onto the rear courtyard. It has original oak flooring and a stone fireplace with oak mantlepiece. The kitchen (approx 12.5m2) leads off this room, with rear larder/store room, also accessible from the hall. A part-glazed door opens from the kitchen onto the rear courtyard. There is a partly-enclosed area around the foot of the stairs which could easily be converted to a shower room.
Low rise original oak stairs lead to the spacious landing, off which are 3 double bedrooms - approx 16m2, 23.5m2 and 18.5m2. All have original oak floors and fireplaces. There is a small alcove, with original oak floor and "colombage" wall which could make a small shower room.
To the rear of the house is a pretty courtyard with a wisteria-covered pergola and original old stone well. Beyond the courtyard is a garden with a small office/studio (approx 10m2) and covered storage. There is gated access for a car from the end of the garden to the lane behind the house. The cottage is situated close to the centre of a popular spa town, with shops, school and other facilities within walking distance, and a large leisure lake and thermal spa just outside the town. Toulouse airport is approx 100km (1h), Pau airport is 120km (approx 1h45) and Bordeaux is 180km (approx 2h)

We live surrounded by breathtaking views of the Pyrénées Mountains and beautiful Gascony countryside with fields of sunflowers in the summer, where the culture is largely agricultural and renowned for its production of Armagnac. In the winter, skiing in this region is excellent with many bustling resorts including La Mongie/Bareges, Cauterets Peyragudes and St Lary. There are quality golf courses in the region and good areas for walking, climbing and mountaineering, it is a permanent fixture for the Tour de France, also wonderful opportunities to enjoy nature, wildlife, sunsets, stargazing and other relaxing pastimes. Tarbes can be found at the foothill of the mountains with places to visit such as Pic du Midi with its observatory, reached by cable car from the ski resort of La Mongie. In the impressive Cirque de Gavarnie, east of Gavarnie you can find the famous mountain climbs of the Tour de France, Col du Tourmalet, Col d’Aspin and Col de Peyresourde, just as breathtaking when travelled by car rather than a bicycle. The area comes alive in summer, with fêtes almost every weekend from May to September, the sounds of the bandas, “vide greniers” (car boot sales) where you can pick up some interesting old French knickknacks. Most villages host weekly markets where you can collect provisions of fresh bread, cheese, vegetables etc or sit at a local wine bar or cafe and just watch the world go by. The medieval town of Marciac hosts one of the world's finest jazz festivals- when the town is flooded with performers and aficionados of Jazz. Not to forget the annual Country and Western festival in Mirande and Latin American music in Vic Fezensac. For motor racing enthusiasts (cars/ bikes/lorries) the race track “Circuit Paul Armagnac” in Nogaro holds regular competitions during the year, and if you own a small plane or glider, there are small airports offering lessons. The town of Auch steeped in history with a statue of D'Artagnan, is very pretty as is the Spa town Bagneres De Bigorre, Lourdes and the chic city of Pau with its university and horse Racing. The Basque region of Biarritz, Saint Jean de Luz and San Sebastian is only one hour away on the Atlantic coast. The closeness to Spain is evident, a day trip to Spain is a 'popular outing for many or just a few hours drive to Barcelona. The area is well served with airports in Toulouse, Lourdes, Pau Biarritz and Bordeaux, by the TGV and by motorway.
