Designed and built for the present owners in 1968, this delightful villa of 302m² is as good as new! Located at the far end of a very quiet road, the front of this beautifully maintained property overlooks a paved courtyard, with one garage set away from the house and a second, double, garage within the house.
The interior of the property is light and airy, with most of the rooms opening onto a south-facing terrace at the back of the villa, which overlooks the gardens, pool and tennis court. The impressive entrance hall has a central illuminated water feature. Designed to feel open-plan and spacious, the hall has openings into a huge sitting room with a wonderful fireplace and a chic dining room with an illuminated mural on one wall. Adjoining both the sitting room and dining room is a glazed winter garden planted with specimen plants and flowers. On the opposite side of the sitting room is a cosy television room. The sitting room and winter garden both open directly onto the south-facing terrace.
Next to the dining room is a lovely kitchen with a dining area. It is beautifully equipped with top-of-the-range appliances. There is also access to the garage. From the kitchen, a door leads into a pantry, along with access to a boiler room/utility room. There is a laundry room very conveniently located opposite the bedrooms on the ground floor, along with a guest WC.
The villa has three ground-floor bedrooms, all of which open onto the south-facing terrace. The master bedroom suite has a double dressing room and a generous en suite bathroom with a WC. Two smaller bedrooms share an interconnecting bathroom, also with a WC. The sunny fourth bedroom is on the first floor, along with an adjacent shower room and WC. This bedroom has a balcony, which overlooks the gardens, pool and tennis court.
From the south-facing terrace at the back of the villa, the delightfully planted gardens lead down to the swimming pool, pool house and tennis court. The pool house has a wonderful summer kitchen and bar area, along with a covered dining terrace to protect you from the midday sun. There is also a changing room. Beyond the pool is a full-size tennis court, which is fenced all the way round to ensure tennis balls don’t escape!
As well as being hugely convenient for people working in and around Pau, this wonderful property is in a perfect location for anyone who loves both skiing and watersports. Spain and several Pyrénées ski resorts are under an hour away to the south - and the many Atlantic beach resorts are about 90 minutes away to the west. There are also numerous swimming lakes in the surrounding area. Toulouse and Bordeaux are just over two hours away.

THE LOCAL AREA
Located to the east of Pau, the many shops and amenities of the city are easily accessible from the property, as is the newly renovated covered market. In addition, many of the local towns and villages have weekly farmers’ markets – and a great choice of lively bars and restaurants can be found everywhere!
This area is also well-known for its excellent schools. Nearby collège-lycées offer a range of studying options (some in English), along with the chance to specialise in theatre, dance, sports… and even horse riding! The International School in Pau (English) also has a very good reputation.
From Idron, the Vallée d’Ouzom is about 20 minutes away. It extends all the way up to the Spanish border in the Pyrénées, where you can ski at Val d’Azun and Gourette. You can also catch a small open train at Artouste to travel high up into the mountains. The GR10 is accessible at Gourette and it is possible to join the Chemin de St-Jacques-de-Compostelle at Arudy to follow the main route from the Medieval market town of Oloron-Ste-Marie
