House in Madiran, Hautes Pyrenees, Midi-Pyrenees, France - Peaceful Rural Location, 1km From Village Of Madiran.
This most unusual house (‘Pigeonnier’), awarded in 1981 the Tarbes Prefect's prize for outstanding restoration, stands on the brow of vineyards belonging to the owners, and is at a distance of 1km from the village of Madiran - famous for its wine (it is said to produce the healthiest of red wines due to the high levels of procyanidins it contains). Madiran also offers all basic shops - butcher, baker, grocer, supermarket, restaurants and a bar. It is situated 12km north of Maubourguet, the local market town (weekly Tuesday market), and 58km from Lourdes. It is also within easy reach by car of the very fine Pyrénées mountains (unlimited scope for walking and climbing) - clearly visible from the house in clear weather. Accommodation includes 3 bedrooms (one with balcony), 1 bath, 1 shower, 2 WCs. The living/dining room opens to a patio overlooking an ornamental or farm pond and there is a separate small kitchen. Outside this house boasts a 10m x 5m pool (enclosed) and garden with plenty of shade, garden furniture and a barbecue. Located between the sea and the mountains, Madiran and the surrounding area generally enjoy a temperate and sunny climate - mild in winter and warm in summer – and within this setting the Pigeonnier provides an ideal base for a perfect family holiday.
