Farmhouse With Pool Looking Onto The Pyrenees

Overview

Property

Updated: 16-Sep-2016
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.
