An impressive property that offers quality, charm, elegance and picture-postcard views.
This beautiful 18th century property enjoys a wonderful location just 6.5km from the attractive town of Pau (airport, castle, good shopping and restaurants, daily covered market) and 4.5km from the wine-growing village of Jurançon (both dessert and dry wines are delicious and of high quality). There is a sought-after restaurant in Jurançon (1 Michelin star, booking essential), as well as all shops and services, and a supermarket. The pilgrimage site of Lourdes with its world-famous grotto and basilica is 59km away; in 2008 Lourdes celebrated the 150th anniversary of Ste-Bernadette's first vision.
There are tennis courts in Jurançon, bike hire in Pau, and an 18 hole golf course in Billère (7km), horse riding in Gelos (6km) and leisure lakes in Larouin (6.5km), Uzein (22km) and Castet (28km). Kayaking and rafting are possible in the spectacular Gave de Pau at St-Pé-de-Bigorre, Nay and Baudreix (all about 30 minutes' drive), and fishing in the fortified town of Navarrenx (54km). The Tour de France passes through Pau in the summer. The beautiful sandy beaches of the delightful towns of Biarritz and St-Jean-de-Luz on the Atlantic coast are about 120km away.
Skiing in the French and Spanish Pyrénées is possible within an hour of the property. Gourette (53km) has a village atmosphere and offers high-powered ski runs and breathtaking panoramas.
