This delightful farmhouse has so much potential! Whether you're looking for a family home in a stunning countryside setting or searching for a property with large enough to create a tourism-based business, or looking for farmland for an agricultural or equestrian project, this property is ideal. With a little energy and imagination, this lovely property could be transformed into your perfect home! Read more ...

This 18th-century farmhouse is set in 13 hectares (32 acres) of picture-postcard meadows and woodland, with glorious views of the Pyrénées on the horizon. Although in need of some modernisation and refurbishment, this property would make a beautiful family home, with plenty of room for welcoming holiday guests should you wish to create gîtes or chambres d’hôtes.

Located on the border between the Basque Country and the Béarn, this beautiful property is five minutes away from the farming village of Barcus, where you'll find a bakery, a village shop and two bars, as well as the renowned restaurant Chez Chilo. The market town of Oloron Sainte Marie is about 20 minutes away.

The property comprises:
- a two-storey 18th-century farmhouse (234m²) with a sitting room (66m²) with an open fireplace, a second reception room, a kitchen (34m²), four bedrooms and a bathroom
- attic space which could be converted into more accommodation
- an adjacent barn (120m² floor area) converted into a double-height artist's studio/workshop
- a small detached stone barn of about 80m² on each of two levels
- a large modern agricultural open-sided barn
- riverside land of 12.9370 hectares (32 acres), two thirds meadow, one third woodland, with a source, a stream and fruit trees (apple, pear, cherry and fig trees)


This property has everything you could need for setting up a new business in France - a beautiful setting, flat land for a swimming pool, enough land for horses, outbuildings to convert into holiday accommodation, a huge barn currently used as an artist's studio/workshop which could be used for activity holidays or to host weddings, yoga retreats, business conferences, other large events and celebrations...

Esquiule is in Soule, one of the three provinces of the picturesque French Basque Country. It is close to the Spanish border, Pau, Lourdes and an easy drive from the famous beach resorts of the Atlantic coast, such as Biarritz and Saint-Jean-de-Luz. Toulouse, Bordeaux, San Sebastián and Bilbao are all within easy reach.

Popular with tourists all the year round for hiking, mountain-biking, white-water rafting and fishing, the region also offers a range of winter sports (downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing) with easy access to numerous ski stations. For those preferring beach-based activities (especially surfing) the famous resorts of the Atlantic coast are less than two hours away (Biarritz, Saint Jean de Luz, Hossegor...)

Although in the commune of Esquiule, the house is much closer to the farming village of Barcus, which has the most essential shops, a medical centre, bars and restaurants, including the truly excellent Chez Chilo. For more serious shopping and services, Oloron is just 15 minutes away.

Film buffs might be interested to know that the town of Oloron Sainte 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!
