Full Description


Nestled in the foothills of the Pyrenees, Maison Murcuillat has:

Four bedrooms
Large sitting room
Separate snug
Modern kitchen
Huge, double height artists studio
Plus a large modern barn, and a smaller stone barn detached

It is surrounded by small farms and woodland and is just 5kms from the pretty Basque village, Barcus.

The house is set in the gentle green pastures of the hiking paradise of the Soule valley. Barcus is a vibrant village with a medical centre, bakery, village shop, two pubs, a pretty church, pelota court and rugby field not to mention the award winning hotel and restaurant Chez Chilo.

Maison Murcuillat is a timeless, unique home shaded by apple, pear, plum and fig trees tucked away from the road it is sheltered by hills and covered in jasmine and vines. Set within its own lush grounds the property is an artist's haven but could conceivably be a boutique farm (as it originally was) / gite / or bike riding, hiking, fishing sporting centre. The property has its own spring water and borders a river.

Extensive renovation work has been carried out but the house could benefit from further modernisation. The house's attic has full height space and windows but has not yet been renovated. The property has enormous potential in an idyllic part of the world.

Beautiful and peaceful Maison Murcuillat's site bears resemblance to an 18th Century idyl and is on one of the sacred old pilgrim routes through France to Saint Jacques de Compostela in Spain. In contrast it is only one and a half hours from glitzy Biarritz on the Atlantic coast with great surfing in the Bay of Biscay. Just 35 Kms (22 Miles) from the border with Spain. And, in Winter, just one hour from skiing, nordic skiing, snowshoeing, and dog sledding, at the breathtaking ski resort La Pierre Saint Martin.
