The garage runs the full width of the house but could be divided to provide a separate garage for each property.

There are two entrances to the houses, on different little roads.
The main entrance is via the gardens in front of the house (one open and one enclosed). As you go through the door of the first property you are in the entrance hall with tiled floor with a door leading into a WC and another leading into an unfinished shower room – these rooms could be removed to make a larger and more usable hallway. To the side of the hallway a door opens into the garage with a small cupboard under the staircase. The garage runs the entire length of both houses but could easily be divided into two separate garages. Original wooden stairs with an iron banister lead up to the corridor on the first floor with the following rooms, all with original wooden floors:
• Dining room with a balcony that overlooks the little stream, a marble fireplace and a door into a cupboard
• Bedroom with a balcony and marble fireplace
• Shower room (shower and wash basin)
There is a door that connects the two properties on the first floor. The staircase then continues up to the attic floor with lots of storage and the following accommodation:
• Two bedrooms
• Large room that could be renovated
There is currently a dividing wall between the two houses which could be opened to reveal the room on the other side in the second property.
The front of property one leads to a terrace at the side with a door into the second house. The main entrance to the property however is on the little lane at the rear of the building which leads into the corridor with electricity meters for both houses on the wall. A door from the hallway leads into the garage where the water meter is located (via a trap in the floor).
On the ground floor you will find a:
• Small office
• Living room
• Kitchen with a door leading out on to the side terrace
• Shower room (shower, wash basin) and a separate WC.
A staircase leads up to the first-floor accommodation as follows:
• Large bedroom
• Second bedroom (currently a kitchen as this floor was previously an apartment)
• 3rd bedroom
• 4th bedroom with a door leading out onto the large south facing balcony at the side of the house • At the end of the balcony is a WC Stairs lead up to the attic with the dividing wall which could be opened to allow access into the first property. The electricity and water are available but currently not connected to either property. 7

The nearest large supermarket, Intermarche is 5km from the house but the little village has a small supermarket and bakers.

It is possible to split the building back into two properties relatively easily or to finish combining the two to make a large property with a lovely balcony, garden and garage.
Pyrenees - Haute Garonne Ski Area
The department of Haute-Garonne borders onto Spain in the south and forms part of the French Midi-Pyrénées region and is surrounded by the departments of Hautes-Pyrénées, Gers, Tarn-et-Garonne, Tarn, Aude, Ariège and the Val d’Aran in Spain.
The Garonne river rises from across from the Spanish border, descending for some 500km down through the Pyrénées mountains, via Toulouse into the Atlantic ocean at Bordeaux, leaving in its wake, beautiful lakes, powerful rapid waters and challenging peaks to explore.
In the summer, the region offers an amazing choice of activities including rafting, potholing, paragliding , climbing, golf, fishing, horse-riding, gliding, adventure parks, fabulous hikes, mountain bike and of course many Tour de France climbs for cyclists and bikers. Visitors are always amazed at the choice of activities, tourist attractions and friendly welcome on offer here right in the centre of the Pyrenees.
The proximity to Spain is a lovely extra little touch with the opportunity to experience two different cultures and sample the local tapas, sangria and rioja wine.
Toulouse is the main, international airport for the region, with daily flights to the UK and other European and long-haul destinations and Tarbes/Lourdes airport offers access in under an hour.
Motorway access to the villages is easy with routes from Bordeaux, Paris, Lyon and Marseille and you can also cruise overnight via ferry to Santander and Bilbao in Spain.
There is a choice of excellent ski resorts in the area catering for all abilities, including; Luchon Superbagneres (the second ski resort to open in France after Chamonix) with its excellent après-ski facilities. Imagine relaxing after a day’s skiing in the thermal spa, having a massage before enjoying a lovely meal with friends or even an English film at the little cinema in the centre of town! In 1854 Luchon received the title of "Queen of the Pyrenees" and it is easy to see why with its beautiful boulevard and impressive villas, spa, casino and mansions.
The resort of Le Mourtis is really geared towards families, looking for the facilities and activities that ensure their children are happy and entertained. Situated just 10km from St Beat, an historical Pyrenean village famous for its marble an just 5 minutes to the border of Spain.
If you’re a more advanced skier or snow-border, you will enjoy the resort of Peyragudes with its Vallee Blanche and fabulous snow record. You can drive to the resort or take advantage of the free bus from the centre of Luchon.
Bourg d’Oeuil is a charming small village nestling at the bottom of the Oueil valley and is the starting point for a variety of hiking trails. In Winter the village is a favourite for those looking to alpine ski and participate in snowshoeing.
And whilst here, why not sample skiing in Baqueira/Beret in Spain – a favourite with the Spanish Royal family.
