Maison Manechal 5 etoiles
Perfectly situated for touring the Great Tourist Sites in Midi-Pyrénées, from Marciac with its International Jazz Festival and Lourdes to the Cirque de Gavarnie and the Pic du Midi.
Maison Manechal is much more than just a traditional French retreat. Set up as an artist residency, art and culture are the heart of the project. A creatively inspiring and serene place both for individuals and families.
On the edge of a small village in open countryside but not isolated. 10" to market towns with restaurants shops and bars. 45" from Lourdes-Tarbes airport and 1hr 55" from Toulouse ou Bordeaux airports. 20" from the International Jazz Festival in Marciac.
The main house has been completely renovated to provide an elegant and spacious home, whilst retaining many period features including 5 working fireplaces.
Double oak front doors lead into the entrance hall 15.2m2 with sweeping oak staircase. To the left is the library 26m2 with large open fireplace. To the right is the elegant dining room 28.9m2 with fire place. To the rear of the hall a door opens onto an inner hall, off which is the imposing entertaining room to the left and the farmhouse kitchen to the right.
The huge entertaining room 93m2 has a large stone fireplace and is well lit by french doors to 2 sides and several windows with magnificent views across the garden and beyond.
The kitchen is divided into two parts with the "preparation area" being separate from the cooking/ dining area. The combined space is 36m2. The Kitchen opens onto an outdoor dining terrace with the swimming pool beyond. There is also a large cloak room on the ground floor with WC and wash basin.
On the upper floor , which has been newly laid with poplar floorboards throughout, is the master bedroom suite 46m2 with an ensuite bathroom of 7m2. This room has french doors opening onto a very large covered balcony of 47.8m2.
Bedroom 2 is 27.7m2 with an ensuite bathroom of 9.6m2, which is shared with a smaller bedroom of 11.5m2

Bedroom 5 is 24m2 with an ensuite bathroom of 5m2
Although the house is traditionally finished it has all the comforts of modern living. The restoration work has been done in such a way that the atmosphere and patina of age have been wonderfully preserved. The traditional tomettes, which cover the floors disguise the damp proof membranes and underfloor heating – provided by air-source heat pumps. Upstairs another air-source pump works the reversible units which provide heat in winter and cool air in summer.
The wonderful exposed beams in the vast roof hide the thick insulation which helps trap the warm air within the house in winter and repel the heat of the sun in summer.
