Legal Informations & CGU
This property, in the Armagnac region with its wealth of vineyards and its heritage dating back to the Romans, stands in discreet, unspoilt countryside. It is near to Nogaro, a resource town, famous for its racing track and with an aerodrome. The nearest airports are in Pau (1 hour), Tarbes (1⅓ hours), Agen (1 hour), Toulouse (1½ hours), Bordeaux (1⅔ hours).
The Atlantic Ocean is but 1½ hours away and the Pyrenean ski resorts can be reached in 2 hours.
The main house
A basket-handle arched, brick porch way opens into an inner courtyard, closed on three sides by the farm buildings and by the house on the south side. The outside walls of the latter feature cement rendering, covering the old lime and sand rendering and awaiting restoration. A pavement runs alongside the facade. It stands on the heights on the garden side. A wide flight of stone steps go down to the entrance courtyard.
The outbuildings in the inner courtyard
The north facade of the house, raised above the inner courtyard, has a terrace with two wide stone stairways at each end leading down to it. Bordered by wings of outbuildings, it communicates with the entrance courtyard via a brick, basket-handle arched porch way. The bases of the walls are planted with hydrangeas and camellias, both flowering prolifically in the local acid earth. A well-sheltered olive tree can be found growing here. Whilst evergreen jasmine, with its fragrant flowers, is planted along the walls of the outbuildings.
The outbuildings form a sort of covered area on two sides. Stone and earth pillars support walls of half-timbering and cob under the overhanging roof. One wing was perhaps once used for storing barrels in this land of vineyards. It has a cement floor and walls of stone and cob. An old fireplace, with large stones forming the jambs, topped with a corbel, is set in the corner. The wing at right angles has a higher roof which has made it possible to install a little dwelling on the upper level, part of which protrudes above the ground floor. It is reached via a narrow flight of wooden steps. Converted in the 1970’s, it is now in need of some renovation works. A landing provides access to a central room, with a sloping ceiling and spanning approx. 26 m², as well as to a separate 10 m² bedroom. Next to it, a small bathroom, under the sloping roof, is illuminated via sections composed of bubble glass tiles set in the wall, and via a fanlight. Under this dwelling, a very old kitchen, spanning approx. 12 m², opens into the inner courtyard. This entire section is in need of full renovation works.
A large garage is set alongside the north wing of outbuildings. It can be reached from the entrance courtyard via a tall gate, made of vertical planks, mounted on a rail. The walls are made of stone and cob, whilst the upper section is half-timbered. It has a packed mud floor under an exposed roofing framework. Light comes in via a tall window.
The holiday accommodation rental unit and the wine storehouse
Lower down on the left-hand side, some old buildings have been rehabilitated for use as a holiday accommodation rental unit. The construction method, typical of the region using half-timbering and cob, was used. A deep, south-facing awning forms a terrace, spanning approx. 18 m², with the fully glazed end wall. Supporting the panelled ceiling, the wall is half-timbered. Recent terracotta tiles cover the floor. The door opens into a large living room which, spanning approx. 40 m², is flooded with light. A few steps go down to the kitchen section which opens on to the garden via a French window. All the kitchen units are laid out along one wall, under a high chimney breast with a plaster mantel and wooden lintel. At the end, a 13 m² bedroom has a sloping ceiling, panelled with strips of wood, strip pattern wooden flooring and plastered walls. A low partition separates the bedroom from a shower room. The latter has white tiles on the floor and turquoise wall tiles. A shower stands in a corner, behind a cupboard delimiting a division with the bedroom. There is a separate toilet.
The half-timbered walls have been left exposed in this holiday accommodation rental unit.
Further way in the meadow, an old wine storehouse also bears witness to typical local architecture, with its gable roof and ochre-coloured walls composed of half-timbering and cob. It features tall central double doors, made of jointed wooden planks, and a smaller entrance door on the side. Inside, the impressive truss of the roofing framework rests on half-timbered walls constructed on stone lower sections. The inter-beams are partially lined. It has a cement floor. Three skylights, two windows and a French window on the south side let copious amounts of light into this area which is undergoing works to become a study or a workshop.
On the slope, still on the same side, a little recent greenhouse is fully glazed.
This property is like a picture book for those seeking a place in which to recharge their batteries, a place without any visual or audible nuisances. Its natural surroundings are not only protective but also beautiful. The buildings are clearly authentic as houses in the Armagnac region are constructed from half-timbering and cob on stone lower sections. The courtyard that they enclose creates yet more privacy for this property. A large family would have more than enough space, a bed & breakfast activity the necessary floor surface area, and both the necessary autonomy.
