OVERVIEW

Magnificent character property composed of one of the most ancient houses in the Bearn dating back to the XVIth century and of a second house of 1840, perfectly renovated on a plot of land of 4664 m2. A unique property for history lovers!
Rare vestige of the XVIth century, this house has come down through the centuries, representing a treasure of the local heritage. Reproduced by artists, visited by historians, it bears witness to an extraordinary genuine architectural beauty. Only 9 years ago, it was still inhabited by two old grannies who lived there like before their ancestors, with beaten earth floor, without any modern comfort until the current owner, a lover of old stones and history, glimpsed at a piece of half-timbering under the cracks of the coating and, like a passionate archeologist, renovated it with all the love and respect due to its old age.
It goes with a second house, much more recent, this youngster, since built in 1840. This one was the humble abode of a cobbler.
