Our property, maison Lahon, is now for sale in the Béarn region of south west France. It is a substantial property comprising a renovated farmhouse with five bedrooms, a one bedroomed apartment, a converted five bedroomed barn and several out-buildings all set in nearly five hectares of mainly flat land on the edge of a valley with views to the Pyrenees.
Lahon is set in about five hectares of garden, fields and wood. The land could be used for an organic farm as we have not put any chemicals on it (we purchased the property 11 years ago) – we plant organically in the potager.
Whoever buys Lahon will have the opportunity to become self-sufficient in food plus fuel for heating the apartment and the barn. You could also derive an income as well – for several years we have provided gite holidays and chambre d’hote and run full board painting and other creative courses, horse riding, and wine tasting tours – details available at: www.breakaway-to-bearn.com. It would also suit two families who want to share as the house and barn are completely self-contained and separated by the pool.
We are about 20kms north of Pau on the edge of a small hamlet, Mouhous, surrounded by farmland and 10 minutes from the nearest town of Garlin.
