Full description:

Lectoure is one of the finest towns in Gascony, perched high on a hilltop, and dominating the surrounding countryside around, the view of its imposing cathedral is visible for miles around.

In a town which is rich in history, this old stone property is a carefully preserved example of some of our finest medieval architecture, with its grand stone walls of square blocks of stone, its old murder windows, and ancient doorways.

In the shadow of the cathedral and in the heart of the oldest part of town, the current owner has lovingly restored the property. Much of its architecture had been hidden over the years, by layers of plaster, but has now been reborn, under her loving care.

Located in a tranquil and walled location, the property benefits from the town’s many attractions, its weekly Friday market, bestoke shops, tea-rooms and restaurants, and yet it is set back, as if observing the life of the town, from a safe and secluded position.

With a quaint courtyard garden to the front, one cannot fail to notice the charm of the arched doorways on the front of the façade, which now house the picture window frames to the main reception/kitchen window.

The main door to the property opens onto the reception room, sunlight streaming in through its arched windows. In the corner there is a wood-burning fire, economical, and fired up by wood pellets.

On the ground floor, there is a laundry room (with washing machine, and dryer) the kitchen benefitting from a side door directly into town.

In the downstairs wing, overlooking the front courtyard garden, there is a large bedroom, with an en-suite bathroom, and fine exposed walls, with an ancient medieval niche, no doubt once an altar, housing a crucifix, and perhaps a statue of the virgin Mary.

Another downstairs bedroom benefits from en-suite bathrooms and is generous in size, with a wealth of period features.

The stairway to the first floor runs past an impressive Medieval wall, perhaps one of the most beautiful in Lectoure, which warranted the painstaking labour applied in its restoration.

Upstairs, the hallway opens out onto an elevated terrace area, with views over the enclosed courtyard and the ancient walls of the convent.
On this level there are two spacious bedrooms, each with private en-suite shower-rooms facilities, as well as a private "studio" appartment, comprising a private bedroom, bathroom and kitchen area.

The property offers views from each of its rooms either to the Cathedral on the street side, with its stunning architecture, or to the old walled gardens of the convent on the other side.

This property is ideal for aficionadas of Lectoure. Few properties are blessed with such a wealth of original features.

In immaculate, ready-to-move-into condition, it would make an idea town house, or perhaps, with its 5 en-suite bedrooms, its future owner could take advantage of Lectoure’s enormous appeal and offer luxury bedrooms to the many tourists who pass this way.

The front courtyard offers a shady retreat from the world, peppered with large-headed hydrangea bushes and roses, and a colourful contrast to the pale blonde stone walls.

To the rear of the courtyard, though not attached to the property, and accessed via a covered terrace-way, there is a small stretch of garden, ideal for a vegetable plot.

Under the house is a cool wine cellar, which the current owner tells me offers the perfect temperature for her wine collection.

Here at Bliss : We love the central location in Lectoure whose attractions are well documented. For some buyers Lectoure is their first and final port of call. For anyone wishing to be part of a community, Lectoure is often the town of choice.
Inside this historical gem, it is hard to stop oneself from running one’s hands over the walls. There is a peaceful sense of yesteryear, where it is easy to imagine the years of prayer have brought a sense of calm. There is little need to decorate the walls with pictures. Here simplicity rules, and the eye never tires, as it explores the intricacies of its architecture. There is little sound, bar the chiming of the Cathedral bells, and their call to Sunday mass. Stepping outside into the vibrancy of Friday’s market is disorientating, such is the calm of the house itself.
If you wish to be part of Lectoure, and somehow apart, whilst remaining at its very heart, this property surely warrants a visit.
