Conveniently located between beach resorts on the Atlantic coast and ski resorts in the Pyrénées, this charming 18th-century property has massive potential as a wonderful family home, a holiday home or for a business. Whether you’re hoping to set up something tourism-related, a horse-riding school or a wedding and events venue, the fabulous countryside setting is bound to delight your guests all year round – and with six bedrooms in the farmhouse plus more than 500m² of additional space in the outbuildings, this versatile property will be absolutely perfect for you, whatever your plans! Read more ...

Built in the 18th century and recently renovated, this traditional farmhouse is located on the outskirts of a peaceful, rural village in the beautiful Béarn. Set around a courtyard, the main house is flanked by two two-storey barns which form an L-shape and a third two-storey barn close to the entrance gates. All the outbuildings are unconverted, making this property ideal for most projects, should you wish to set up a tourism-related business, a riding school, a wellness centre, a restaurant, a tearoom, a wedding and events venue…

From the courtyard, the front door of the farmhouse opens directly into a double-size sitting room with a staircase in the centre. To one side of the staircase is a cosy sitting area with a decorative Béarnais fireplace which has been fitted with a woodburning stove. The other half of the sitting room on the far side of the staircase could be used as an office, a music room or a playroom. Beyond this room is a bedroom which has an en suite shower room with an Italian-style shower and a WC.

Next to the sitting room is a formal dining room, which also has a woodburning stove, along with glazed double doors opening onto a small terrace overlooking the grounds. Next to the dining room is a spacious open-plan kitchen, which has room for a huge dining table. The kitchen has a door opening out to a paved area, which is ideal for outdoor dining and for a barbecue area.

On the first floor, there are five light and airy bedrooms, a family shower room and a WC. From this floor, it is possible to access unconverted loft space, which could be transformed into more living space, if desired.

Outside, the courtyard is the perfect spot to enjoy dining alfresco in the sunshine – and one of the two open-sided barns would be perfect for a covered terrace and summer kitchen. With 5,940m² of gardens and grounds, you could create more terraces for outdoor dining, one or more barbecue areas, a children’s play area - and there is plenty of room to install a swimming pool, if desired.

This delightful farmhouse is not far from the popular bastide town of Navarrenx which is known for its exciting watersports on the Gave (river). The property is also midway between ski resorts in the Pyrénées and surfing and family beaches on the Atlantic coast. The verdant Basque Country is a short drive away – and the Medieval market town of Oloron-Ste-Marie is just 25 minutes away, where you will find numerous shops, a theatre and a twice-weekly farmers’ market. If you have a family, there are lots of excellent schools in the area to choose from.

THE FARMHOUSE

Ground floor:
- a double-size sitting room with a woodburning stove
- a dining room with a woodburning stove
- an open-plan kitchen with a dining area
- a bedroom with an en suite shower room (Italian-style shower) and a WC

First floor:
- five bedrooms
- a shower room
- a WC
- access to unconverted attic space


THE OUTBUILDINGS

The property has five unconverted outbuildings: a single-storey barn (open at the front), three two-storey barns and an open-sided barn. The single-story barn measures 64m²; the three two-storey barns measure 2 x 87m², 2 x 77m² and 2 x 36m²; the open-sided barn measures 39m². Additional accommodation of up to 500m² could, therefore, be created by the new owners, making the property ideal for creating gîtes or B&B suites, setting up a riding school, running leisure activity holidays, hosting weddings and events…


THE GROUNDS

Nestling in lovely grounds of 5,940m² (1.5 acres) at the end of a country lane, the farmhouse and outbuildings are set around a central drive and courtyard. The property overlooks mature woodlands to the east and enjoys delightful panoramic views of the Béarnaise countryside! There is more than enough space in the grounds to install a swimming pool, a pool house, a summer kitchen, a children’s play area... and the land would be ideal for planting an orchard and extending the existing vegetable garden.


THE POTENTIAL!

This fantastic property has so much potential! The farmhouse and barns could become a stylish boutique hotel/B&B, with a total floor space of more than 600m²! The peaceful location would also make it ideal for a wellness centre or for running retreats. In addition, the Béarn is very popular with groups of walkers, cyclists and horse riders, so you could easily create ample accommodation for hosting larger groups.

The barns are perfect for creating a dance/yoga studio or conference rooms for corporate training events, celebrations and weddings. Other ideas might be to organise leisure activity holidays for guests, such as writing, painting, photography, yoga, gastronomy workshops and Jurançon wine-tasting courses! The installation of a swimming pool would make this property even more desirable to holidaymakers.

Should you be hoping to set up a riding school, the layout of the farmhouse and barns around the central courtyard is very convenient and the quiet country lanes would be great for pony trekking excursions.

THE LOCAL AREA

The Béarn is close to the picturesque Basque Country, the Spanish border, Pau, Lourdes 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, such as downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding and snow-shoeing. For those who prefer beach-based activities, the Atlantic coast is just 75 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.
