Full Description

"The Forge" is located close to Madiran village. The property is an extensively and tastefully renovated former blacksmith’s cottage, between 150 and 200 years old, situated in the old French region of Gascony, enjoying a quiet, elevated, south-facing situation with panoramic views across the attractive, green, rolling countryside to the Pyrenees mountains about 50 miles away

It is within easy reach of several small towns with good shopping facilities, while the larger cities of Tarbes and Pau are within 45 minutes (both with airports), and the major centres of Bordeaux and Toulouse are about 2 hours away, making the property well situated for those who need easy access to and from the UK and ideal for visiting friends and family. Santander with ferry crossings to the UK is just a 4 hour drive.
