Welcome to Lasserre.
Property overview: A most beautifully presented farmhouse with a separate guest house to renovate, a pigeonnier and attached barn.It is surrounded by its own land and comes with a swimming pool. It is set atop a hill amidst peaceful countryside only 5 minutes from a historic bastide village. Perfect!
Peace, tranquility, lazy lunches by the pool, sharing time with family and friends, long summer evenings, views over fields of sunflowers and grapes -- that is life at Lasserre.
Approached by a long avenue, this beautiful stone farmhouse sits in total seclusion on five acres of lawn, garden and wooded hillside. Spread out before it lies a panorama of rolling countryside, woodland, farmland and, on clear days the distant peaks of the Pyrenees.
A lovely old pigeonnier forms one side of the courtyard in front of the house. A large stable attached to the side of the house provides storage for the barbeque, bicycles, boules, and table tennis. In the sunny courtyard in front of the house, a large table and umbrella provide a relaxing spot for meals.
The house itself is charming. While retaining the beauty and simplicity of an 18th century farm house, Lasserre is a very comfortable family home. The rooms are graced with ancient hand hewn beams, heavy oak doors and lovely old terracotta floors.
Lasserre is our home for a portion of the year and consequently has been furnished to a very high standard with favorite pictures and books, family furniture, and top quality appliances. .
