High ceilings, original features and spacious rooms give a feeling of grandeur when you enter this lovely renovated village home. Situated in a typical Pyrenean Village known as the ‘Key to France’ due to its proximity to the Val d’Aran in Spain with a lake, river, shops, services, snack bar and café.
Toulouse and Tarbes/Lourdes airport are within 1h 15 minutes and just 20 minutes to the train station at Montrejeau, motorway, St Bertrand de Commines, Bossost in Spain and Bagneres de Luchon making it an ideal location for a bed and breakfast.
• 16-minute drive to Le Mourtis Ski Resort (11 km)
• 22-minute drive to Superbagneres Ski Resort (20 km)
• 45-minute drive to Peyragudes Ski Resort (35 km
• 50-minute drive to Baqueira/Beret in Spain (48 km)
Located in the centre of an historic Pyrenean village, close to the border of Spain, you will find this renovated large village house with rooms on three floors and a beautiful sunny first floor terrace and courtyard below.
The property would make a lovely family and/or holiday home but would be a perfect B&B. The bed and breakfast in the village has closed recently due to bereavement leaving scope for a new establishment to cater for tourists visiting the region.
You enter the property via the double doors into a small vestibule (3.35 m2) with marble floor and a double-glazed door into the entrance hall (16.30 m2) again with a marble floor, radiator and a door opening into a cupboard housing the new electric boiler installed in 2014.
To the right of the hallway is a little WC independent (1.65 m2) with wash basin, wooden ceiling and extractor fan.
At the end of the hallway is a large double-glazed door leading into the courtyard with:
• Covered terrace (6.70 m2) and original ‘evier’ sink
• Relaxing sound of the river passing by
• Original bread oven – which could be used for bread and/or pizza!!
• Door leading into the living area from the covered terrace
• ‘Source’ with pump
• Wood store (4.35 m2) – it is possible to install a fosse septic in this area
• Metal spiral staircase leading up to the first-floor outdoor terrace
• Small store ideal for garden equipment (1 m2)
• Watertight metal door and wall with windows – preventing water from the river entering the property
• Outside tap for watering flowers
• Outside electric lighting
• Electric socket
This lovely courtyard could be very pretty with little flower pots, hanging baskets, seating and possibly decking.
The entrance hall opens into the ground floor accommodation:
LARGE LIVING ROOM (38 m2)
This is a beautiful spacious room currently used as a lounge and dining room.
The lounge has a lovely working fireplace – ideal for cosy Winter evenings and an external door leading out to the covered terrace. This area has a window looking out onto the courtyard with an electric shutter, a large vertical wall radiator and an archway through to the hallway.
The dining room has a closed fireplace with carved ornate features (one we think is a little portrait of a person who lived in the house), 2 original wall cupboards, 2 wooden double-glazed windows, a ceiling rose and an arch through to the hallway and entrance hall.
KITCHEN (10 M2)
This ground floor kitchen has plumbing for a dishwasher and washing machine and a double-glazed window looking out on the courtyard.
STORE ROOM OR PANTRY/LAUNDRY (10.05 m2)
An archway from the kitchen leads into another room which could be a store room or pantry/laundry room with a wooden double-glazed window, wooden ceiling, closed fireplace and lovely double doors into the hallway.
Should you wish to use this property as a B&B this floor would be an excellent area for guests with a lovely seating area, a large dining room, a kitchen where you can prepare breakfast and/or evening meals and a storeroom for outdoor equipment (skis, bicycles etc).
To the rear of the hallway a beautiful original wooden staircase and balustrade curls up to the first floor with a cupboard underneath currently used as a wine store.
As you climb the staircase to the first floor, you will see the floor to ceiling doors that open into the accommodation – ideal for retaining heat. The spacious landing/hallway (7.90 m2) has doors leading into each of the rooms on this floor.
To the right of the staircase is a dining room (13 m2) with:
• Door opening out onto the first-floor external terrace
• Double glazed window
• Closed fireplace
• Original wall cupboard
On the opposite side of the hallway is the fully equipped kitchen (9.30 m2) with:
• Induction hob
• Washing machine/tumble dryer
• Extractor fan and….
a door leading into the back-kitchen area (3.50 m2) which was originally a shower room and could very easily be changed back if required.
There is a large lounge area (19.65 m2) with a closed fireplace, cupboard and which also has a door into the back kitchen. This room could be made into a bedroom with the back kitchen as a shower room.
Lastly, a sizeable master bedroom (21.90 m2) with 2 double-glazed windows, fireplace and 2 original wall cupboards, again with ornate carvings and a large private shower room (4.35 m2) with big wash basin, WC, large shower (with 4 massage jets).
Again, if thinking of opening a B&B, this floor could provide two beautiful large en-suite bedrooms.
FIRST FLOOR TERRACE
One of the lovely touches with this property is the external first floor terrace with
• Wooden floor
• Spiral metal staircase down to the ground floor courtyard
• Metal balustrade
• Lovely views of the river and mountains over to Spain
• Electric socket
• Sound of the river
• Outdoor electric lights
This super terrace is completely private and on sunny days is a wonderful place to relax and eat with friends and family.
The beautiful staircase continues up to the next floor.
Once again, this floor has a large landing/hallway (8 m2) with doors into 2 bedrooms measuring 17 m2 and a very large bedroom measuring 20.55 m2.
It would be possible to reduce one room to make 2 shower rooms providing an en-suite to each bedroom. The third bedroom on this floor would have access to the separate bath room (6.15 m2) facing the river, with a large bath/shower, 2 wash basins, towel radiator and extractor fan.
There is an independent WC with wash basin (1.50 m2) on this floor and a cupboard that goes under the attic staircase (approx. 2 m2) providing storage for cleaning materials and equipment etc.
A door from the 2nd floor leads up to the attic space which could very easily be converted. If a B&B, this could provide private owner accommodation.
Due to the central village location, there are free parking bays and space right outside the property.
The village has the following shops and services:
• Little café/bar
• Snack bar
• Post Office
• Gift shop
and only 5 – 10 minutes from the Val d ’Aran in Spain with a massive choice of restaurants and bars, large supermarkets etc.
In the immediate vicinity, you have the following activities and amenities available to you:
• Downhill skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing
• Walking and hiking trails at all levels
• Mountains, lakes and village outdoor swimming pool (in Summer)
• Cycling (cross country and Tour de France mountain passes)
• Paragliding, rafting, canoeing, hunting, horse-riding and fishing
• Spas (Luchon, Balnea and Lès in Spain)
• Shops, restaurants and historical sites
The nearest large supermarket, Intermarche is 5km from the house but the little village has a small supermarket and bakers.
Toulouse, Tarbes/Lourdes and Pau airports are all within 1h 20 minutes and the train station at Montrejeau is 25 minutes by car but a coach takes you there from Marignac station several times a day which is just 5 minutes away.
