Twenty kilometres from Pau, nestled in the hills, this authentic 18th-century Bearn-style property offers a magnificent view of the verdant landscape stretching to the foot of the nearby Pyrenees. The house is surrounded by 13 hectares of farmland, including 6 hectares vineyard certified "protected designation of origin" Jurançon.

Typical example of the local architecture (the area of Jurançon, Monein, ...), the buildings of this farmhouse are set around a pentagonal courtyard of 100 m². After the porch, you will discover the outbuildings with a total area of over 400 m²: stable, barn, wine cellar, wine press, bread oven, chicken coop, ... This property was built between 1700 and 1823 and has withstood the years without damages, with thick pebble walls and solid oak roof frames. Structurally, no renovations are needed.

The house, with its east-facing ochre façade, has a living area of 223 m², consisting of a comfortable living room with a magnificent floor made of hexagonal terracotta tiles and a rustic fireplace; the ground floor also includes a small kitchen, a study and a bedroom. The first floor offers a shower room and several bedrooms. Some renovations would be needed to offer the modern comfort and to make of this former master house a prestigious residence.

The outbuildings offer a huge potential for various activities: tourist accommodation with table d'hôtes, event organization, agrotourism, an equestrian centre, agriculture, ...

The plot of 13 hectares of farmland, around the farmhouse, consists mostly of meadows, 3 hectares of forest and a vineyard. Six hectares are still certified "controlled Denomination of Origin Jurançon". Currently 1.75 hectares are planted with white grape varieties and 5 different plots with red grape varieties. It would be possible to use 4 additional hectares as a vineyard. The entire estate is considered organic, the land has been cultivated for several years without pesticides or other chemicals.

This property offers a great opportunity for an activity of organic agriculture: viticulture to produce wine with a Denomination of Origin Jurançon or of table grapes, fruit trees, vegetable production, beekeeping, breeding, educational farm or open-air museum.

This domain is very easy to reach, 25 minutes from downtown Pau, 15 minutes from Lescar, the shopping centre and the A64 and A65 motorways, 20 minutes from Pau-Uzein international airport, one hour from the Atlantic Ocean, from the nearest ski resorts or from Spain.
