About the property

Farmhouse in Athos Aspis, Sauveterre-de-Bearn, Pyrenees Atlantiques, Aquitaine, France - Peaceful Location Yet Only Minutes From Local Village

The property is situated at end of small lane on a hill just outside the small hamlet of Athos- said to be the birthplace of the fourth musketeer. There are stunning views of the Pyrenees. The house has been updated for modern living, retaining its original character. A 12x6 metre salt water pool has been recently installed. The property sits in a hectare of land and is surrounded by fields, providing privacy and wonderful views. This is complemented by the house's proximity to the fortified medieval town of Sauveterre de Bearn. Opportunities for activities are endless: river and white water rafting, walking, cycling, fishing, tennis and golf. Additionally numerous historical towns and villages of interest are nearby. The Atlantic coast and surf (Biarritz,Saint Jean de Luz) are less than an hour away. And just ninety minutes away are the gastronomic delights of San Sebastian in Spain.

About Elizabeth Kershaw

I'm Australian and my husband is English. We have lived in Brazil, South Africa, Australia, Germany and the UK and found that the Pyrenees Atlantiques with its magical countryside with mountains, rivers and the sea fulfilled all our expectations for places to live.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Merci, Merci, Merci!!! Quelle semaine paisible. Nous avons apprecéié le calme et la plénitude de Couteigt, et la beauté de la region. La piscine y est aussi pour beaucoup,car même si le tempps n’était pas forcément au RDV., nous avons pu en profiter (Presque) tous les jour.

Harold (Our sheepdog) a aussi apprécié l’endroit et les grandes balades sur les Chemins alentour.

La proximité avec la pays basque et ses plages nous a permis d’y faire qques escapades, et là aussi, c’était trés appreciable.

Thank you for everything!!! Seb, Marie & Harold
