Overview

About the property

4 / 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms with plenty of outdoor space. Peaceful location.

The house stands in it's own grounds with immediate views of vines, fields and farms, yet it is within easy distance of a pretty village with good amenities including a boulangerie, a bar/restaurant, a well stocked general store / post office and a chemist. The views from the house really are incredible with the Pyrenees to the south and beautiful countryside to the east.

Upstairs are 4 bedrooms, 2 with ensuite shower rooms and a main bathroom with a bath, all are tastefully furnished. There are also 2 camp beds and a cot available increasing capacity upstairs to 10/11. Bath and pool towels are provided for your convenience.

Downstairs is a large comfortable TV lounge with a log fire and separate dining area. The 'snug' has a bed settee sleeping a further 2 adults if required. There is a downstairs toilet and shower room with a washing machine.

The kitchen has a huge fireplace with another log burner and a table to seat 6. The kitchen is well equipped with fridge / freezer, oven and microwave as well as cooking / eating utensils.

Off the kitchen there is another dining room / conservatory and a useful coat / boot room with a washbasin.

To the front of the house is an 8 X 4 pool with terrace. There is a BBQ area with picnic table and a hammock. On the other side of the house is a covered terrace (our salles de fetes!) with another dining area, comfy seating, a bar, a weights bench and a table tennis table. There is also a small sand pit for the little ones. This terrace is lovely and cool on hot days and perfect for providing some welcome shade as well as relaxing in the evening.

There are 1.4 hectares of grounds in total so plenty of room to roam around including a field, a paddock and an orchard with tyre swings for the children. There are apple trees, pear trees, cherry trees, and a lovely fig tree!

There is plenty to do here so you definitely wont get bored. Viella is in the heart of the Madiran wine region and there is wine tasting available on every corner. Visit the local market at nearby Aire sur l'Adour where you can buy the very best fresh and local produce.

The countryside is stunning and you can walk from the house, roaming to your hearts content exploring paths and vine yards. It is also a very popular area with cyclists, both on and off road.

The house is suitable for horses with a field, field shelter and a sand school and you are very welcome to bring your horse on holiday here too - the riding is wonderful!

A little further afield is the city of Pau in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Days out in the mountains are endless, whether is it sightseeing, walking, cycling in summer, or skiing, dog sleds and snow mobiles in winter, you will be spoilt for choice.

About Jill KIRBY

Hi, my name is Jill and I love France!

I first came to work in France in 2006 and I have been hooked ever since. I love all that france has to offer but particularly the food and wine!

I am from Derbyshire in the UK where I did a lot of walking so I love the countryside which is why the views from our house were very important.

I am a horse lover and the house is suitable for horses - you are very welcome to bring your horse with you on holiday, the riding is the best I have ever experienced!

Jill KIRBY purchased this house in 2011

Why Jill KIRBY chose Viella

I hope you enjoy our home as much as we do. One of the things we love is that it is so peaceful, it really is a little corner of paradise.

The Gers is the most unspoilt department in France, with the least industry and no motorway, making it the cleanest air in all of France. Sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine watching the sun go down and the stars come out is a perfect way to end the day.

The countryside is beautiful and because we are surrounded by vine yards everywhere is open with little fencing, just an abundance of tracks for you to explore and enjoy.

What makes this house unique

The best bit about this house are the views - they really are amazing. You can admire the chain of the Pyrenees to the south, with the snow capped peaks glistening in the sun against the deep blue sky and then across to the east the countryside stretches out for miles. Breathtaking!

Maps and tourist information are available at the house to help you find your way round and places to visit. There are 2 mountain bikes which you are welcome to use. There is plenty of entertainment for children, a Bird of Prey Centre just down the road at St Lanne and La Maison des Chameau near Plaisance where you can get up close to the camels, llamas and many other animals. There are 2 beautiful lakes nearby, one at Aignan where there is an acrobranch with zip wire over the lake. The other lake at Lupiac has a fabulous restaurant, this beautifull village is famous for d'Artagnan and the 3 Muskateers.

Viella is in the Gers but on the border with the Landes, Pyrenees Atlantique and Haute Pyrenees so every direction gives you something different to see and experience.
