About the property

Holiday Home in Mirande / Marciac, Midi Pyrenees, France - Located in Medieval Village in the Heart of the Gers

This delightful and beautiful 17th century 'Maison de Maitre' located on edge of charming medieval village close to Marciac and Mirande radiates charm with its stone walls, beamed ceilings and original features. Fabulous setting with lovely gardens, large pool and terrace, private woods and stunning views to the Pyrenees.

The interior space is on three floors and totals approx. 500 square metres. On the ground floor, in addition to the ground floor double bedroom and shower room there is a separate lounge and large, well equipped kitchen/dinner plus bathroom and laundry.

There is an additional salon on the first floor plus three large airy ensuite bedrooms with the fifth ensuite bedroom located on the second floor. All with double or king size beds and one with a single but all with enough space to easily accommodate an additional single bed or baby's cot. The downstairs lounge offers additional sleeping accommodation on the very comfortable sofa-bed.
