This is a big property in the foothills of the Pyrenees between the Col des Ares and the Col de Portet d'Aspet: Tour de France country. It is currently exploited as a "very large gite" remotely by its owners who live elsewhere. It has been renovated to a very high standard and is sold fully furnished and equipped.
The building (château?) is divided into three dwellings:
* The big gite is a duplex on the first and second floors with 4 bedrooms, kitchen, 3 bathrooms, tv room and loads of space. It can be combined with:
* The small gite with its 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and tv room. Both these gites are heated by a sophisticated heat-pump system and have double-glazing and excellent insulation.
* The third dwelling is the owners' flat on the ground floor. It is a simple one-bedroom (en-suite) affair with spacious kitchen and large living room.
The rest of the ground floor is given over to storage, a workshop, a library (collected works of J-Jacques Rousseau) and more space that could be used as something else: cycling centre, yoga school, art centre ... à vous de jouer!
The property is set in its own wooded grounds in a tiny village just off the Col des Ares climb in the Haute Garonne département. Skiing nearby in Le Mourtis or Luchon, hiking from the front door and cycling likewise. The extraordinary energy consumption and CO² emission figures speak for themselves: "B" and "A".
