Magnificent five bedroom 1830's spacious family home in Gascony (Landes) with private swimming pool. L'Airial is a charming remote house in peaceful Gascon countryside. This lovely "maison de maître" is a real get-away-from-it-all location, yet only 3kms to the pretty village of Moustey. 5 good-sized bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, modern kitchen, dining room with open fireplace, and a large living room with woodburner. Private and securely fenced gardens. 5x11m swimming pool catches the sun all day.
L'Airial; a charming remote house in peaceful Gascon countryside. 3kms to the pretty village of Moustey with its 2 churches, 4 restaurants, small grocery shop, post office, and of course the obligatory boulangerie.
The upstairs of house comprises three good-sized bedrooms (over 20m² each) a spacious 40m² hallway (with sofabed) and a bathroom (shower, toilet, and double sinks). Downstairs there are a further two double bedrooms, a bathroom (with separate WC), a well equipped modern kitchen with Smeg applicances, a welcoming dining room with open working fireplace (the real heart of the house), and a large living room with woodburner.
Pets, especially dogs, are very welcome and my house and garden are doggie heaven (as my past guests have described it).
Outside the 1 acre mature gardens are very private and securely fenced with grand old oak trees and tall pine trees. The 5x11m private swimming pool catches the sun all day and has comfortable pool loungers. The pool's electric hard cover for use at night keeps the water warm and is also essential for safety.
Immediately on the boundary of the property is the forest which ideal for hikes and all manner of outdoor activities. The property is located between the Grande Leyre and the Petite Leyre rivers. These small calm rivers are great for kayaking (kayaks available for rent locally) or a bracing dip.
Plenty of local activities for groups of friends or families. Swimming (pool, rivers, lakes, and sea), kayaking (local rental), biking/hiking/jogging on forest trails, dog walking, horse riding (local stables very close at end of forest track), badminton (net and rackets provided at house). This location is great for yoga, painting, meditation, or just relaxing and reading.
Just 45 mins from Bordeaux airport it is easily accessible by plane, train and automobile.
You will have the entire property, swimming pool and gardens all to yourself!
Sorry - I am out of country. A friendly neighbour has keys for the property and is available in case of any issues with the house (and is also a wealth of local knowledge and can help with local excursion arrangements on request). The neighbour can also arrange bicycle rentals for your stay (adult and children).
