Situated in a fabulous mountainside location and with panoramic views of the Pyrénées, this excellent property has over 11 hectares (28 acres) of organic-certified land which is perfect for keeping goats, sheep, donkeys, horses... Formerly a farm for producing goats cheese and now a farm for producing donkey milk, the new owners have numerous possibilities for setting up their own agricultural enterprise. There is a huge milking parlour (250m²) with cheese-making facilities and various other outbuildings. In addition, if you would like to create one or two gîtes, there is a two-storey stone barn to convert near the farmhouse and a second stone barn further along the hillside. Most important of all, the farmhouse is ready to move into and requires only some finishing touches and no major works. Read more ...

Dating back to the 1700s, this splendid property in the Pyrénées comprises a farmhouse of 94m², which has been double glazed throughout, a two-storey stone barn ideal for a gîte, another stone barn to convert further along the hillside, a huge milking parlour of 250m² with facilities for making cheese and various outbuildings, including an open-sided hangar adjoining the farmhouse. The organic-certified land of 111,439m² (28 acres) extends up the hillside and is ideal for grazing.

Located at the end of a country lane yet just minutes away from a lively village in the valley with shops and a school, this cosy farmhouse of 94m² has a spacious main room with a sitting area, a dining area and a modern kitchen, a walk-in pantry, a study or small office, a large bedroom, a shower room and plumbing for a separate WC. On the first floor, there are two lovely bedrooms and a shower room with a WC; on the second floor, there is a loft-style room which could be used as a bedroom, a playroom or a large office. Although in need of a few finishing touches, the farmhouse has been completely modernised and double-glazed and is ready to move into.

Outside, the modern barns are conveniently close to the farmhouse and the donkeys currently grazing on the land have safe access to the milking parlour at the back of the barn. There is two-storey stone barn at the entrance to the property, which would be ideal for transforming into a gîte, as would the second stone barn, which is located further away from the farmhouse along the hillside.

Situated in the Basque Country, but close to the Béarn and its famous Jurançon vineyards, there are always things to see and do all year round. For mountain lovers, there are several ski resorts not far away in the Pyrénées. If you prefer watersports, there are numerous lakes and rivers throughout this wonderful region, along with beach resorts on the Atlantic coast, which are perfect for surfers and for family days out.

THE FARMHOUSE

Ground floor:
- a large open-plan sitting room/dining room/kitchen
- a walk-in pantry
- a small study/office/playroom
- a large bedroom
- a shower room with a WC

First floor:
- two bedrooms
- a shower room with a WC

Second floor:
- a loft-style room which could be used as a bedroom, playroom or office


THE GROUNDS AND OUTBUILDINGS

The property is set in land of 11.1439 hectares (28 acres). Most of the land slopes uphill from the farmhouse and there is some more land below the property. In addition, there are two springs.

The property has several outbuildings, which include:
- a barn with a milking parlour and facilities for making cheese
- two modern outbuildings
- an open-sided hangar adjoining the farmhouse
- a two-storey stone barn to convert
- a second stone barn to convert


THE POTENTIAL!

If you are hoping to find a small farm with modern milking and cheese-making facilities, this property is perfect for you. The land is ideal for goats, sheep, donkeys and horses – and the barn with the milking parlour could easily be transformed into stables, if preferred.

The area’s proximity to the Pyrénées and the Atlantic coast brings many visitors to the region, so if you prefer to set up a tourism-related business, the unconverted stone barns could be used to create gîtes or Bed and Breakfast accommodation for tourists during the summer months, the skiing season and at Christmas and New Year. The larger modern barns could be used for hosting leisure activities, such as painting, photography, wine-tasting and gastronomy workshops or even weddings and other celebrations. In addition, the totally rural location and the lack of any neighbours would guarantee complete peace and tranquillity for yoga retreats and wellness breaks. Guided cycling and walking could also be very popular...
