About Heather Ross

Pretty French Farmhouse was purchased in 2006 after our family fell in love with this region of France. A vast amount of energy and time was spent renovating it to provide comfortable accommodation.

Heather Ross purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why Heather Ross chose Barcus

The property is secluded and set in lovely peaceful countryside. Although tucked away it is only a short drive to some great restaurants (approx. 5 kms) and there are 3 towns within a 15 minute drive, i.e. Navarrenx, Oloron St Marie and Mauleon.

It is a great base to explore this beautiful region set between the Atlantic ocean and the Pyrenees mountains.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The peaceful views and the calmness of the setting which is not overlooked.
