Domaine de Pignoulet is a very handsome, well-proportioned late C18th Maison de Maitre - or 'principal house' of the area. Built two hundred years ago as part of what was once a prosperous farm, the house has been sympathetically and elegantly restored by the present owners. The property lies just off a quiet lane running through a small, peaceful village, and is well-protected by its outbuildings and a walled garden. You will enter through a pair of lion-topped old stone pillars with fine wrought-iron gates, into a private walled garden at the front of the house, filled with roses and many other well established shrubs; there is a good range of open barns and old farm buildings to the left of the drive and to the right of the house is the unusual brick 'poulailler' (chicken house). Facing Southwest, the house sits high up in a valley and on a clear day there are long views to the Pyrenees from the upstairs balcony.

Beautifully carved oak double front doors open into the Hall with terracotta tiles and a lovely original wooden staircase leading to the main landing and bedrooms. From the Hall, there are two reception rooms approached through original double doors - a South and East facing Salon with fireplace, good polished oak furniture and big comfortable sofas and a South facing Family Room, with fireplace, TV and Video/DVD players, a huge sofa, chairs and mainly old pine furniture. This room leads to the fully-equipped 'farmhouse' Kitchen, through which you reach the Washroom, Downstairs Shower Room and WC (useful for the pool) and on to the back stairs. The Kitchen is very large, attractive room with a wood-burning stove and a dining table that seats 12.

Upstairs, the large landing has French Doors out onto the fine South-facing balcony with views to the Pyrenees. On one side is the large master bedroom suite with double bed and ensuite bathroom. On the other side of the landing is the second double bedroom and through this, the third. At the top of the back stairs, there is a twin bedroom and an a children's bedroom with twin single beds and a bunk bed; bedroom six is another twin. There is plenty of room for a party of up to 10 adults and 4 children, with six spacious double bedrooms, four bath/shower rooms and two extra bunk beds in the large children's room. The 'family' bathrooms especially are huge!

There is an open covered dining area immediately outside the kitchen which leads through a lockable door to the securely fenced orchard garden where there's a large swimming pool with beside it a well-designed 'Abri' or sun-shelter set among the fruit trees. The large, well-kept gardens (2.5 acres) contain a range of interesting outbuildings which include a large, South-facing open-fronted barn beside the house which is ideal for ping-pong.

Domaine de Pignoulet has the charm and original features of an old house now combined with modern comfort, facilities and equipment. With its enclosed, secure gardens, barns and swimming pool, this is a perfect family holiday home - and it's ideally located to enjoy the famous International Jazz Festival held every year in August in nearby Marciac.
