During our search for real estate to realize my professional project, the whole family fell under the charm of this house. It met all our criteria, a real “coup de coeur”.
The building was the farmhouse of the first house in the Couty district, hence the name: La ferme de Couty.
It is an old bigourdane farm from the 1800’s, renovated by the former owner in 1990, into two apartments and a business premises. It is made of exposed stone and pebbles, with door and window surrounds of Pyrenean marble. The roof is in slate with dormers.
We have kept the downstairs apartment for our personal use. Except for one bedroom on the ground floor with an attached bathroom facilitating access for people disabled persons.
The upstairs apartment is divided into four large bedrooms each with its own bathroom and toilet.
The top of the business premises has enabled us to create a large living room where you can relax in peace and quiet to read or play board games. It is accompanied by a dining room to share breakfast and dinner, on an old traditional studded wooden door transformed into a table. Enjoy this warm atmosphere, made of wooden beams with strut, moise crossbowman and punch.
The large room is now equipped with a water point, hob, dishwasher and refrigerator. The upper part of the house can be rented as a gîte.
A private car park is at your disposal in front of the house, you can park your bikes and motorbikes in a sheltered area.
We have chosen to give each room the name of a town or village that tells the story of our life: Aime, Saint Pé de Bigorre, Toulouse, Sarreguemines and Lyon.
Key chains of the rooms realized in collaboration with Rue Labilu artisan in Tarbes (leather goods and concrete jewellery).
In each bathroom, you will find bath linen, ecocup tooth glasses with the logo of la ferme de Couty that you can take as a souvenir, a hairdryer and soaps made in Adé next to Lourdes by Absolue&sens. The soaps are handmade, cold saponified. In their range of products, I have chosen Rêve d’Athéna or Calinou both without perfume or essential oils.
