The ground floor of the house comprises an entrance hall, an open-plan sitting room/dining room with a wood-burning stove, an adjacent kitchen and a utility room with a shower room and a WC.

THE LOCAL AREA
The property is located on the outskirts of La Bastide-Clairence, a village in the French Basque Country which is not far from Biarritz, Bayonne and St-Jean-de-Luz. Dating back to the 13th century, La Bastide-Clairence was built as a fortified village to protect the surrounding area. It is now listed as one of the "Plus Beaux Villages de France" and is famous for its colombage architecture, its gorgeous arcades, its numerous art galleries and its annual pottery fair, which is held every September.
This region of France is popular with tourists all year round. There are several ski resorts 1 - 2 hours away, as well as the famous beach resorts on the Atlantic coast, which are about 30 minutes away. The sandy beaches at Hendaye and St-Jean-de-Luz are great for the family; the exciting waves at Biarritz and Anglet are ideal for surfing!
