Summit Location: Unique Property of 120 green acres
Just outside Simorre in the Gascogne region, 50 ha of varied nature with forests,
meadows, and fields - traversed by a miles-long network of private pathways; varied
topography with hills and valleys; river, dam lake, ponds, fountains; beautiful old trees
and thousands of new plantings; several orchards - combines beauty and fertility. All
designed with respect for the style of the region, for the landscape, and for nature.
Organic farming done by contractors.
In the center of the property is a hill with great views of the Pyrenean peaks (Photos 1,
2); an extensively renovated old farmhouse in a very private location (Photos 3, 4, 5),
comfortable and practical, consequently unpretentious. In the additional wing there is a
spacious outdoor living hall, lots of storage space, a workshop and a garage; large
separate barn - everything discreetly embedded in the dense vegetation of the hilltop.
With a view down to Simorre (Photo 6), a pretty village
with a significant fortified church, shops, a doctor's office and diverse community life.
A perfect place for a classically beautiful life in the countryside (Photo 7). The vast view
from the top of the hill across the sky and landscape is seldom matched in quality
(Photos 8, 9).
The property is a little paradise for creative people with a love of nature (Photos 10-19).
Here grows scenic beauty that you can give your personal touch. The prospective evergreen giants were planted 20 years ago, and they earn every year in stature. The owners have to tear theirselves away for reasons of age - you
may take over the project, realize your ideas, and enjoy finishing the accomplishment.
