The owner has retained the original marble sink. There is a tiled floor and a door leading out into the garden. At the rear of the kitchen a door leads into the pantry. This room would make a super laundry room and has space for the freezer, fridge etc. LIVING ROOM This is a lovely large room with double glazed patio doors leading out to the front terrace. Originally this room was home to farm animals and has been beautifully refurbished.
FIRST FLOOR The original wooden staircase and exposed stone wall are so charming. As you reach the first floor there is a spacious hallway with doors leading into the three large bedrooms, each with double glazed windows, wooden floors and a beamed ceiling. One bedroom has the fireplace – at the moment this has been sealed but, should you change the use of the room into eg an office – the chimney can be opened up and used once more. There is a large bathroom with a bath (shower over bath), a bidet and two wash basins with a fitted base unit. A separate WC completes the accommodation and rooms on this floor.
ATTIC The lovely wooden staircase continues up to the attic floor. This is a large space with high ceilings. The wood has all been treated and there is excellent insulation throughout this area. This space could very easily be converted into another large bedroom with a shower room and a dressing room.
GARDEN As you open the gates, you can see how pretty and charming this house is. To the right is a new covered wood store and a garden shed. In front of the house is a little terrace, an ideal sitting area in summer to avoid the hot sunshine. To the side of the house is a lovely garden with a barbecue. On a sunny day, the garden gets the sunshine all day long. There are wonderful views of the surrounding mountains from the garden.
The house has electric heating and the fireplace in the kitchen. If you are looking for a property that oozes charm and character, that is ready to move in, requires very little maintenance and is close to shops, restaurants and services yet within easy access to the beautiful mountains and countryside then this is your perfect home.
Pyrenees - Haute Garonne Ski Area
The department of Haute-Garonne borders onto Spain in the south and forms part of the French Midi-Pyrénées region and is surrounded by the departments of Hautes-Pyrénées, Gers, Tarn-et-Garonne, Tarn, Aude, Ariège and the Val d’Aran in Spain.
The Garonne river rises from across from the Spanish border, descending for some 500km down through the Pyrénées mountains, via Toulouse into the Atlantic ocean at Bordeaux, leaving in its wake, beautiful lakes, powerful rapid waters and challenging peaks to explore.
In the summer, the region offers an amazing choice of activities including rafting, potholing, paragliding , climbing, golf, fishing, horse-riding, gliding, adventure parks, fabulous hikes, mountain bike and of course many Tour de France climbs for cyclists and bikers. Visitors are always amazed at the choice of activities, tourist attractions and friendly welcome on offer here right in the centre of the Pyrenees.
The proximity to Spain is a lovely extra little touch with the opportunity to experience two different cultures and sample the local tapas, sangria and rioja wine.
Toulouse is the main, international airport for the region, with daily flights to the UK and other European and long-haul destinations and Tarbes/Lourdes airport offers access in under an hour.
Motorway access to the villages is easy with routes from Bordeaux, Paris, Lyon and Marseille and you can also cruise overnight via ferry to Santander and Bilbao in Spain.
There is a choice of excellent ski resorts in the area catering for all abilities, including; Luchon Superbagneres (the second ski resort to open in France after Chamonix) with its excellent après-ski facilities. Imagine relaxing after a day’s skiing in the thermal spa, having a massage before enjoying a lovely meal with friends or even an English film at the little cinema in the centre of town! In 1854 Luchon received the title of "Queen of the Pyrenees" and it is easy to see why with its beautiful boulevard and impressive villas, spa, casino and mansions.
The resort of Le Mourtis is really geared towards families, looking for the facilities and activities that ensure their children are happy and entertained. Situated just 10km from St Beat, an historical Pyrenean village famous for its marble an just 5 minutes to the border of Spain.

Bourg d’Oeuil is a charming small village nestling at the bottom of the Oueil valley and is the starting point for a variety of hiking trails. In Winter the village is a favourite for those looking to alpine ski and participate in snowshoeing.
And whilst here, why not sample skiing in Baqueira/Beret in Spain – a favourite with the Spanish Royal family.
