                  Do not miss the village's Roman Church in Lucq Center, Oloron's cathedral Ste Marie, Oloron's pure Roman Church Ste Croix, the famous Hospital Saint Blaise on the road to Compostelle.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1800

                  About the owner: This property is my family's ancestral home. It is very dear to us, and we have tried to maintain and update it with all respect due to its age and inherent character.

                  Why the Owner Chose Pau:
                  If you're looking for a secluded retreat, yet with easy access to some of Roman Christianity's architectural jewels, the renowned town of PAU (Henri IV) and its fancy shopping and pedestrian area, easy and moderate hiking opportunities, and maybe the best food ever, this is for you!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  A genuine countryside property -with all modern life amenities (yes, you can still keep up with emails!)-, you will soon fall into the pleasure of taking a nap by the pool after lunch!
