Situated in a beautiful, peaceful area of the Gascony countryside, this lovely 3-bed/3-bath family home has a stunning stone facade, and plenty of character features. Outside, there is a lovely swimming pool, large outbuilding and 12 acres of land. The property is quiet, but not isolated and the world-renowned Jazz hub of Marciac is a short drive away.
The property has been a much loved holiday house for many years, and if you’re looking for a place to get away from it all and enjoy some peace, quiet and privacy, this would tick all those boxes.

Entrance hall with tiled floor & exposed beams (10m2)

A short wander over the front lawn, the 5.5 x 10m swimming pool has an easy entry step and lovely terrace seating area with amazing views across the valley.
The land covers 53,651m2 and is a lovely mix of gardens, mature trees and pasture. It would be ideal for keeping animals and possibly horses if planning permission for stables were to be granted.
There is a large barn with potentially usable space of 108m2 over 2 levels.
The house is situated between the two market towns of Marciac and Plaisance. Marciac is a very pretty bastide town with a good selection of restaurants, cafés and shops and sees a regular through-fare of travellers on he Campino de Compostella pilgrimage trail. Once a year, the little town comes alive as it is the host of one of the very best jazz festivals on the circuit.
The riverside town of Plaisance is also close by - another very pretty Gascon town with a lovely square, lively cafés and restaurants and a weekly fresh produce market every Thursday.
