Located just a short distance away from a lively village, this very private estate offers three properties and 38ha of land. The main house also benefits from a large, heated, indoor swimming pool and jacquzi and beautiful mountain views. The properties provide endless possibilities for rental accommodation, or would simply make an ideal purchase for an extended family to share. There are numerous garages and workshops, as well as areas suitable for keeping horses and other livestock. There are many unique features - this property really must be viewed to be appreciated!
House 1 The main house a unique entrance with mezzanine level as you walk in the front door. To the right is a study (which could be used as an additional bedroom if preferred) and directly ahead is a wonderfully large living /dining room. The room has been separated into different areas with a lounge area, dining area, and games area. The kitchen also opens out onto this room. The kitchen is a a lovely bright and open room which is very well appointed. It also has the benefit of a large utility room. Along one wall of the lounge are large glass sliding doors which lead onto the indoor swimming pool. The pool is heated, has a cover, and there is also a separate jacuzzi. The pool area also has a shower, WC, and seating area, and glass doors which open out onto a terrace. On the first floor of the property there are two, large, double ensuite bedrooms. The bedrooms have sliding doors which lead out onto the roof of the pool below. This is perfectly safe for walking on and could be fenced to create a large terrace. One of the bedrooms provides access to the attic. If desired, it would be possible to put proper stairs in and create additional accommodation in the attic space. The house has a very large garage/basement area. There is ample space to store several cars and gardening equipment etc. The garage also provides access to the under side of the pool and hot tub, making maintenance easy. Below the garage is a very large wine cellar. The house also benefits from double glazing and underfloor heating.
House 2 Located next to the main house, this guest house also comprises two double bedrooms and an open plan kitchen/dining/living area. In addition, the house has three very large garages as well as an attic which can be accessed both from inside and outside the house. These could be further developed if desired.
House 3 The third house requires work to finish it off, but currently provides one double bedroom with an open plan kitchen living area, and shower room with separate WC. Attached to the house are a number of enclosed spaces which are not yet complete. These could easily be incorporated into the house and the accommodation extended, or they could be used for stabling/garages etc. Due to the size of this building it would be entirely possible to create a number of apartments/gites for rental if desired. This house benefits from beautiful views across the surrounding mountains.
The land which comes with this property covers an extensive 38 ha, of which 14 ha has been enclosed by the current owners. The land is made up of a mix of forest, garden, and fields and approximately 4 ha are flat prairie land which would be ideal for horses or livestock. The immediately surrounding garden area has ample space for a vegetable garden, and there are already a number of fruit trees in place.
The property is located in an enviable position, just a few minutes drive from the pretty and popular village of Aspet. Here there are a number of restaurants and bars, shops, and a twice weekly market. The village also provides a post office, bakery, school, doctors, and an outdoor swimming pool in the summer. The larger town of Saint Gaudens is only a 20 minute drive, providing access to hospitals, senior schools, banks etc. Le Mourtis ski resort is within a half hour drive, and the area is popular with cyclists and walkers alike.

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.

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.
