Cultural Sites: For centuries, the Pyrenees have been a natural and cultural watershed, and the history of the region is every bit as complex and intricate as its to topography. While great empires and cultural movements lapped at the base of the mountains, small pockets could remain unaffected. Individual kingdoms constantly altered shape and influence through local alliances.
The border as we see it today did not become fixed until 1659, with the signing of the Treaty of the Pyrenees. The historical overview aims only to give an outline of important events in France and Spain which had their inevitable effect on the kingdoms of the Pyrenees.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: In 2006 our family purchased the property after falling in love with the stunning Haute Pyrenees and this amazing property. We continued the work of renovations to the property reinstating it to its original glory. The property has been decorated with sympathy to ensure the originality of the property is preserved but with a modern twist.

Why the Owner Chose Sère-en-Lavedan, France:
Le Belvedere, a Maison D’Maitre (Mansion House), was built between the 1700 and 1800, the exact date is unknown, by a wealthy farming family from the area. The property at that time was quite substantial and included some of the outlying area and buildings, one of which is still part of the property. During the second World War the property was used as a school and Mairie (council offices) and after that was sold to a family of 10. Subsequently there was another purchaser and then in the 1970s until the 1990s the house was left unoccupied. In 1994 the property was purchased by a local couple and they ran a bed and breakfast business and commenced extensive renovations internally as the house was is disrepair and required a large amount of renovation work which also included the small Grange attached to the property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Le Belvedere is one of the most outstanding properties of its type in the area with outstanding views of the valley of Argeles and has unique access to some of the last wilderness areas of France and Spain.
