About the property

Watermill & Farmhouse in Bas-armagnac, Aquitaine, France - Private A-class River L'adour, Ideal For Fishing And Kayaking, Kayaks And Mountain Bikes Provided

This beautiful and private on-the-river estate in the heart of Gascoigne wine and Armagnac country consists of a 18th-century restored miller’s farmhouse and watermill, in 39 acres of private grounds, heated natural swimming pool, meadows and Woodland nestled among fruit trees and ancient oaks. The A-class River l'Adour is pebbled with crystal clear waters which flow from the Pyrenees Mountain ski resort of La Mongie, and is excellent for wild trout fishing, kayaking (complimentary kayaks are provided), bathing, swimming, painting, writing & bird watching. The estate is bordered by a protected nature reserve. The all year round natural swimming pool is situated on the front terrace, with views of the river, offering privacy to swim, read, eat, drink, relax or sunbathe. Marras is a magical expansive place, a private escape cloaked in serenity, where you can hear the breath of nature and believe in fairy tales. A unique place for those with a passion for authentic experiences.

About Tera Mare

Lycian Coast and Gascogne was the result of our love affair with the place and people; which we like to share with our special guests who share simillar passions in sailing, swimming, kayaking, horse riding, cycling, trekking, gastronomy, yoga and fishing.

You can visit our Facebook Tera Mare Club group page as well as TeraMare web site for more photos and information.

Tera Mare purchased this farmhouse in 2003

Why Tera Mare chose Landes

Gascogne in SW France is simply a passionate love affair - aside from the natural beauty and gastronomical delights, the people are a treasure to behold. If you want to experience utter peace, quiet, space and hear the breath of nature then you must visit Moulin de Marras, 39 acres of landscaped grounds, meadow and Woodland nestled among fruit trees and ancient oaks with 1km of A-class l'Adour River.

Facilities provide for natural and heated swimming pool, complimentary Kayaking on our river, fishing and cycling - equipment provided.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Space to roam free - Our facilities provide for a natural and heated swimming pool in a natural setting, complimentary Kayakking on our river, fishing and cycling - equipment provided. Views of the river and our water mill are breath taking. For would be chefs, try our summer kitchen and cooking in an original Gascognian Bread oven. The house itself is very large and filled with real and antique furniture as opposed to gite furniture.

Please visit our TeraMare web site to see more photos & video or simply contact us.

Guestbook comments from the manager

If you want to completely kick back, eat, drink, sleep well and recharge batteries, then Moulin de Marrast almost can't be beaten. Early morning walks along the river, late night drinks on the terrace, calm, quiet and totally ready for whatever partying you want to do - 5 days felt like a fortnight away, certainly leaving me ready to return and take up the ugliness of moving house!

But oh that pool!! spent hours just luxuriating in it, especially when others were away, just you, the river nearby, and no-one else anywhere near - great for skinny dipping and letting the sun fall where it doesn't usually manage to!

A heavenly hideaway yet near enough for meals and sight seeing and all those things we usually try to cram in...

Will definitely be returning soon. Mandy, Totnes, 05/2010

The property is really huge and situated advantageously as an island of silence and tranquility. open air heated pool is a dream. Highly recommended.
