Charming 17th century country cottage situated in a peaceful rural hamlet. The house has been fully restored and renovated over recent years. 5 bedrooms for a habitable surface area of 210m². The house is spacious, warm and welcoming. Period features abound and the half-timbering on the first floor is particularly stunning. We love the converted dining room with its doors leading onto the garden. There is a lovely swimming pool on the upper level of the garden overlooking the house. The garden is full of flowers and plants and is beautifully maintained. It is a very managabeable size at 1,708m².

In a dominant position, this property enjoys great views of the surrounding countryside and even of a lake and the Pyrenees on a fine day. The route up to the house is via a small lane ideal for walking. We are very close to an impeccable 18-hole international level golf course. We are also only 10 minutes from the town of Marciac, in the heart of the Gers and Gascony, a town which offers full amenities and is known throughout the worl for its Jazz festival. For ski lovers, we are only 90 minutes from the first resorts in the Pyrenees.
