About this property

Luxury Farmhouse With Heated Pool And Amazing Views. This villa is in a rural setting.

A Puntos is an absolutely fantastic traditional 4 bedroom Gascon farmhouse with amazing mountain views, private heated pool and wood fired pizza oven all set within beautifully landscaped gardens.

Set on the edge of the sleepy hamlet of Mont de Marrast in the Gers, A Puntos is a traditional French farmhouse which retains many of it's original features including oak beams and floorboards, floor tiles and fireplaces.

The property is accessed by a long, private driveway and set in 2.5 acres of gardens. Facing due south and set high on a ridge, both the house and the swimming pool bask in daylong sunshine and command fabulous, uninterrupted views to the Pyrenees.

There is exclusive use of swimming pool which is surrounded by a paved area with 8 sun loungers and there is also a shaded pergola with rattan seating and a table to cool off or have a drink. Pool heating has been installed, as with a pool alarm and there is a thermal blanket to keep the pool warm at night.

Come and enjoy the local food, wine and relaxing atmosphere of A Puntos where you can enjoy lazy days and nights with friends and family either on the terrace, around the pool or just anywhere in the large and beautiful landscaped gardens.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Graeme Fletcher

We both live in Scotland, work in the UK and try to get over to France as much as we can.

Year property purchased 2013
Why this location? We fell in love with the property as soon as we saw it. We love the house itself, the big gardens, the pool, which we have now heated, and the amazing views over the mountains. It really is a getaway from all the hustle and bustle of our busy city life.
Unique benefits of property What is special about A Puntos...I would say everything but then, I suppose, I am biased. If I had to pick one thing, it would be sitting on the terrace, with a warm breeze in my face looking at the mountains and enjoying the peace and tranquility. Obviously, with a glass of wine!!!
