House Navarrenx (64)

EXQUISITE COUNTRY HOUSE + GUEST COTTAGE/GÎTE + GORGEOUS GARDENS OF 1.6 ACRES WITH STREAM + BEACH & SKI 70 MINS
Built in the 18th century and retaining many of its original features, this gorgeous country property comprises a main house of 170m² and a fully furnished guest cottage of 200m². Situated in a tranquil location in the heart of the beautiful Béarnaise countryside, this wonderful property is ideal for anyone searching for a luxurious family home or holiday home. You also have the option of generating an income by renting out the guest cottage to holidaymakers, either as a gîte or for B&B.
The main house and the guest cottage are set either side of a paved terrace, which overlooks delightful mature gardens of 6,650m². A little river on one side of the grounds is crossed by a romantic wooden bridge à la Monet - and there is an outbuilding of about 50m² at the far end of the land.
From the terrace, the front door of the main house opens into a huge open-plan main room with a sitting area, a dining room and a kitchen area. The room has a lovely open fireplace and a working bread oven!
From the main room, a corridor leads round to a bedroom, which has super views of the garden. A shower room with an Italian-style shower and a separate WC are also accessible from the corridor.
From the main room, a beautiful wooden staircase leads up to the first floor, which comprises a landing, a large bedroom, a family bathroom and a separate WC.
The second floor comprises a bedroom and a landing, which can be used as a small sitting room/library/study area.
A lovely arched front door opens into the main room of the guest cottage. The room has a sitting area, a dining room and a magnificent open fireplace. Behind this room is a separate kitchen with a dining area, a utility room, a bedroom and a bathroom with a WC.
A small staircase next to the ground-floor bathroom leads up to a bedroom with sleeping areas on two levels.
A larger wooden staircase in the main room leads up to a landing on the first floor. The first floor comprises three bedrooms, a shower room and a separate WC. Two of the bedrooms have doors out to a balcony. There is also access from the first floor to unconverted loft space, which could be transformed into more accommodation, if desired.
From the landing, a door opens out to an external wooden staircase, which leads down to the terrace and grounds.
The pretty bastide town of Navarrenx nearby is very popular with visitors all year round. There are exciting watersports on the "gave" (river), as well as numerous cultural and sporting activities for you to get involved in throughout the year. The town also has a great choice of lively bars and restaurants, shops and boutiques - and there is even a bilingual school (French/English). The "International School of Béarn" in Pau, which teaches the English curriculum, is just 40 minutes away from the property.
The Medieval market town of Oloron-Ste-Marie is also easily accessible, where you will find several hypermarkets, a hospital, a theatre and a twice-weekly farmers’ market. Pyrenean ski resorts are just over an hour away to the south - and the surfing and family beaches on the Atlantic coast are about an hour away to the west.
