Set in beautiful gardens and grounds of 3 acres (12,440m²), the manor house can be used for B&B guests straight away - and the huge adjoining barn and smaller stone “porcherie” could be converted into several gîtes, a function room for weddings and events, a yoga/dance/art studio… Read more ...

Built in the late 1700s, this elegant manor house is ready to move into today! The main house has been very tastefully renovated and decorated and has three stylish reception rooms, a beautifully equipped kitchen, four/five spacious bedrooms and three bathrooms (with ample space in the loft for two or three further bedrooms), making it an ideal property for a boutique Bed and Breakfast business. Adjoining the manor house is a huge barn, which has more than enough space for creating three large gîtes. Set away from the house is a smaller stone “porcherie”, which could be used for hosting weddings and corporate events or as a summer kitchen and barbecue area…

Inside the manor house, many of the property’s original architectural features are visible, such as original floor tiles, wooden floorboards, exposed stone walls and traditional Béarnaise fireplaces. The front door of the house opens into a lovely entrance hall with access to a bedroom on one side of the hall and a formal dining room and sitting room on the other side. The open-plan kitchen is at the back of the house and has a door to an outdoor dining terrace. Adjacent to the kitchen is a cosy dining area with a fireplace, a wood-burning stove, along with a door to the sitting room and dining room. The kitchen and dining area benefit from underfloor heating. At the other end of the kitchen is a small annexe, which has been transformed into a relaxing garden room with a fireplace with a wood-burning stove. Doors at the front and the back of this room give access an outdoor dining terrace at the front and a courtyard at the back of the house.

Halfway up the staircase in the entrance hall is a charming study/office, which could be used as a fifth bedroom, if desired. On the first floor, there are three lovely bedrooms, two of which have en suite shower rooms, the other an en suite bathroom, which makes them ideal for B&B guests straight away. The staircase continues up from the first floor to a huge loft space, which has all services in place for converting it into more living space/bedrooms/bathrooms...

The manor house is close to several rivers for exciting watersports, numerous ski resorts in the French and Spanish Pyrénées, along with surfing and family beaches on the Atlantic coast. The Medieval market town of Orthez is just over 15 minutes away, where you will find numerous shops and other amenities – and just a few minutes away from the manor house is a lovely leisure park with a selection of animals roaming free, numerous picnic spots and a large lake where you can fish for trout. A great place for all the family!

THE OUTBUILDINGS

The manor house forms an L-shape with its adjoining stone barn. This barn is currently used as a garage, a laundry room, a summer kitchen, a workshop and for storing garden equipment. Split into three sections with three arched entrances (two of which have been bricked up), the barn could easily house three gîtes. One or more sections could also be transformed into a huge function room for weddings and corporate events, if preferred.

The stone “porcherie” is set away from the house and is much smaller, but it could also be used for hosting events, or as a summer kitchen, barbecue area or pool house, should you wish to install a swimming pool.


THE GARDENS & GROUNDS

The manor house is set in gardens and grounds of 3 acres (12,440m²), which are planted with mature trees and shrubs, many of which are specimen trees and exotic fruit trees. From the automatic entrance gates (which are also fitted with a videophone), a gravel drive sweeps up to the back of the house. The huge barn next to the manor house is currently used for parking.

There is more than enough flat land for installing a swimming pool in the grounds, along with terraces away from the house for dining and sunbathing, a summer kitchen, a barbecue area, a children’s play area… The terraces next to the house are perfect for outdoor dining and for entertaining holiday guests, as well as enjoying an evening apéro as the sun goes down!


THE POTENTIAL!

There are many wonderful features which make this manor house ideal for you! Currently used as a family home, the property is in absolutely excellent condition and can be moved into straight away. This makes it perfect for a family hoping to live within easy commuting distance of Pau or Orthez, for example. The schools in the Béarn are absolutely excellent and many have options in the lycée where you can specialise in theatre, various sports and horse-riding.

Should you be hoping to set up and run gîtes or a boutique Bed and Breakfast business in the Béarn, look no further. The ground-floor rooms and the outdoor dining terraces are perfect for welcoming guests and serving breakfasts afternoon tea and evening meals…

The barns can easily be converted into gîtes, function rooms/conference rooms for hosting weddings. The location of the manor house between Pau and Orthez and near several airports would ensure a steady stream of local people searching for a wonderful spot to celebrate weddings and other events - and corporate clients will be tempted by the rural location since it is not far from Pau. Offering activity holidays might also be a possibility, such as painting workshops, yoga retreats, cookery courses, wine-tasting…

There is currently a huge shortage of top-quality guest accommodation in the Béarn, so tourist offices are actively encouraging the creation of gîtes and B&B businesses throughout the area. This demand is year-round, both from tourists and from corporate clients, because of the proximity of the Pyrénées, the Atlantic coast, numerous ski resorts and Pau.

THE LOCAL AREA

The Béarn is close to the Spanish border, Pau, Lourdes, the picturesque Basque Country and the Atlantic coast. Toulouse, Bordeaux, San Sebastián and Bilbao are all within easy reach.

Popular with tourists all year round for hiking, mountain-biking, white-water rafting and fishing, the region also has numerous ski resorts offering a range of winter sports, including downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding and snow-shoeing. For those who prefer beach-based activities, the Atlantic coast is just 90 minutes away where you can swim and surf at Biarritz, St-Jean-de-Luz, Hendaye, Hossegor...

If your interests are gastronomic, visit the daily markets throughout the Béarn and Basque Country to sample local delicacies, such as tasty Bayonne ham or fabulous brebis, which is a cheese made using milk from sheep. The famous “Ossau-Iraty” brebis can be bought direct from farms in the nearby Vallée d’Ossau, or you’ll find it at any of the farmers’ markets in the local towns and villages.

Film buffs might be interested to know that the riverside town of Oloron-Ste-Marie and several of the picturesque villages of the Vallée d’Aspe have recently been chosen as film locations, most notably for two French films starring the Oscar winner, Jean Dujardin, and an English film, "Waiting for Anya" based on the Michael Morpurgo book set in France in the Second World War. Not only is the stunning, unspoilt countryside of the Béarn perfect for filmmakers, but enthusiastic locals are often encouraged to volunteer as extras to appear alongside the international film stars - next time, that could be you!
