The properly is a lovely family home or holiday home but would also be a perfect B&B or gite (investment). The B&B in the village closed 7 years ago due to bereavement, leaving scope for a new establishment catering to tourists and skiers in the region.
The accommodation is as follows
ThIs light and airy level includes a large open-plan salon and kitchen, a laundry room/pantry, a cloakroom, and a WC. At the rear of the home are two double-glazed doors that lead to the outdoor courtyard. Two climitisation units have been installed for heating, cooling, and dehumidification.
Vestibule Entrance (3.2 m2)
You enter the home through double front doors that lead into an enclosed vestibule with Pyrenean marble floors. A second set of double-glazed doors serves as a climate barrier and entrance into the main home. It houses a centralized tableau for all electrical, satellite/cable television, and CAT-5 ethernet functions.
Large Open-Plan Salon and Kitchen (41.5 m2)
The ground floor offers a large open-plan salon and gourmet kitchen. New ceramic tile (2021) has been installed, but the original historic Pyrenean marble path has been retained. The salon has been fitted with an environmentally green pellet stove insert in the original fireplace. The room is accented by floor-to-ceiling original cabinetry with ornamental plaster reliefs and neoclassical details. Three ornamental plaster faces peer down from above the fireplace (we think the likenesses of the family who originally built the home!). The salon is lit by a large chandelier hung from a ceiling rose above.
The kitchen was designed in 2021 with an enormous French oak centre island housing a copper sink, dishwasher, microwave, and plenty of drawers fitted with custom storage. Above the centre island are two crystal and copper light fixtures that anchor the room.
The kitchen includes an ardoise gray 110cm Falcon Elise (made by Rangemaster) double oven with separate broiler and warming drawer with an induction cooktop (4,900 euros), a fitted exhaust system, and an American-style side-by-side refrigerator. The original working wood burning fireplace serves as a beautiful backdrop for the kitchen. The kitchen is wired for satellite/cable television, and CAT-5 ethernet (for television/internet).
Cloakroom (9.8 m2)
This room has new ceramic tile flooring that flows in from the salon to unify the space. It is the perfect place to store winter coats/boots, bicycles, and skis when coming in from the cold. It has a closed fireplace and a crystal chandelier.

Courtyard (43 m2)
The courtyard is a flexible space serving as a potted herb garden, three-season dining area, and hot tub. The tall privacy wall is fitted with windows that allow for views of the Garonne River. A watertight metal door provides access to the River.

The three principal rooms have been wired for satellite/cable television, and CAT-5 ethernet (for television/internet) and have climitisation for heating, cooling, and dehumidification. The landing and the three principal rooms have panelling and picture rails installed to house newly renovated electrical systems.

Master Dressing Area (2.7 m2)
Making the most of space, an old small bathroom has been renovated as a dressing area with fitted drawers, shelving, and hanging storage.
Master Bathroom (12.3 m2)
Once an old kitchen, the master bath is large and luxurious. It has a beautiful white clawfoot bathtub with chrome lion’s feet situated under ceiling-height, double-glazed windows overlooking the Garonne River, a toilet, a large walk-in rain shower, and double sinks housed in a salvaged antique sideboard that was selected to highlight the neoclassical details of the home. The bathroom is fitted with high-end chrome retro fixtures, ornate mirrors, beautiful light fixtures, and recessed ceiling lighting. A large retro ardoise gray wall heater completes the room and warm the space wonderfully.
Art Studio (13.4 m´2)
The art studio receives a lot of natural light through a large ceiling-height, double-glazed window and glass double-glazed door that leads onto an upper terrace. It has a closed fireplace with ornamental plaster details, an original cupboard, and panelling and picture rails. This room is lit by a crystal chandelier beneath a ceiling rose.

First Floor Terrace (15.4 m2)
The sunny first floor terrace overlooks the Garonne River and the beautiful Pyrenees Mountains.
The views are unparalleled. In spring and summer, the view is verdant and lush. In Autumn, the hills and mountains are a riotous combination of oranges, reds, and yellows. In winter, there are snow-covered landscapes and dramatic mountain peaks.
A barbecue is cleverly connected to the chimney below. New lighting and electrical outlets have been installed. The fitted spiral staircase accesses the courtyard below.
The second floor offers a landing, office, two guest rooms, a bathroom, a WC, and attic access. With the exception of the bathroom and WC, which has newly installed ceramic tile, the flooring is newly installed 13mm French ash planks milled locally and installed by an artisan.

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.

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.
