Full description:

Superb Maison de Maître offering 362m² of constructed surface area, with additional Béarnaise farmhouse and barn, dating from the sixteenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Built on 5300m² of land and around a main courtyard, it is located just 2km from the medieval town of Orthez. In a dominant setting, it offers splendid panoramic views of the Pyrenees.

The main house was completely renovated in 2007 (electricity, plumbing, insulation, heating). On the ground floor, it is composed of a large entrance hall, living room, kitchen/dining room, utility room, guest cloakroom, and boiler room. The first floor offers three large "en suite" rooms, one with a dressing room and a single bedroom. The attic could easily be converted to increase the living space : water and electricity have already been installed.

Outside, there are two driveways to the property, several terraces and a beautiful park allowing you to take advantage of the warmer days.

There are numerous outbuildings : an old farmhouse (140 m² on two levels), barn (112m² on two levels) and a storeroom of 43 m². A dovecote from 1717 with porch, a pigpen and a henhouse complete the set.

This house, currently referenced for the quality of its guest rooms, offers the opportunity to develop a chambres d'hôtes/gite business. With it's historical background (once the actual residence of the Duke of Wellington during the last stages of the Peninsular Campaign) and its location (45 minutes from Biarritz, 60 minutes from French and Spanish ski resorts, 15 minutes from the golf course at Salies-de-Béarn), it represents an interesting investment.

About Sophie Folley Immobilier, Salies de Bearn

Sophie Folley Immobilier is an independently owned, fully registered and insured, estate agency in the south Aquitaine region of France. The founders, Sophie Folley and Matthew Burnett, both provide 10 years of valuable experience helping people to buy and sell property in the area. Their depth of knowledge of the local market, and of the buying process, means you can be assured of receiving the very best personalised service and professionalism.

Sophie Folley studied French with business studies at Humberside University. She moved to the Bearn in 2005, has a French husband with a roofing business, and a four year old daughter. She is, therefore, intimately involved in French community life and very well-placed to help with all aspects of settling in to the area, whether it be sourcing local craftsmen and tradesmen or registering children into the local schools.

Prior to his current work, Matthew Burnett worked for French companies, in the paper and packaging industry, for 25 years. He is very familiar with the area having lived here since 1997 and is passionate about local culture, history and rugby!

Working in conjunction with Sophie and Matthew are Stuart Lock and Emilie Marcq.

Stuart arrived in Bayonne in 2014 on a one yesr sabbatical from his teaching career in the UK. So taken was he by the quality of life that he recently decided to extend it indefinitely for him and his ever-growing family. The decision was certainly based on the high quality rugby, and dining options; but also the plethora of family friendly activites available including the easy access to the numerous stunning beaches on the Atlantic coast. Having bought two properties in Bayonne, Stuart is well placed to offer advice on searching for the right property and the buying process on the coast.

Emilie is the French member of the team. She comes from the North of France and moved to the Bearn during the summer of 2014 with her husband and their three children. Emilie has many feathers in her cap : she studied archeology and taught as a school teacher for 5 years. She's also passionate about horses : she graduated from the "Ecole Française des métiers du Cheval" (Fontainebleau). She can offer advice on any agrotourism project in the area.
