About Lynne Wigmore
Professional couple living in Edinburgh
Lynne Wigmore purchased this Farmhouse in 2015
Why Lynne Wigmore chose Hères
We bought this property in 2015 after an extensive search. We had holidayed in the area before and loved the terroir, the food, wine and the beautiful countryside. The proximity to the Pyrennees was a draw too offering walking and climbing in the summer and skiing in the winter. The area offers an experience of authentic French cuisine and culture. We fell in love with the house which has many period features and is excellently appointed with lovely outdoor areas and of course a fantastic pool!
What makes this Farmhouse unique
This enchanting 18th century traditional french house offers a tranquil environment in the heart of Gascony. It offers a very private space with extensive garden and well positioned pool and terraces. Enjoy the birdsong in the morning and beautiful views to Castelnau Rivierre en Basse as you enjoy a sundowner in the garden.

A magnificent French retreat
Le Pont Perdu is elegant, stately and beautifully appointed. We spent a wonderful week in this handsome farmhouse as a group of three couples with two small children.
We visited in late September when the days were still warm enough to enjoy the beautiful pool, eat figs fresh off the tree and lunch under the barn roof. Nights were cool enough to justify a fire in the huge cast iron grate in the enormous living room or to sit out in a jumper and watch the bats against the milky way.
We bought delicious wonky tomatoes and purple peppers in the local market and washed them down with gold-medal winning 4 Euro Madiran wines. We got our share of culture in the Auch cathedral and were clambered all over by enthusiastic marmots at the Parc Animalier des Pyrénées.
The house had everything we needed and provided a beautiful, grand backdrop to each day.
I’m not entirely sure why we came home …
A refined property of vast proportion with pool, set in rural Gascony. Nothing is lacking.
From the moment you enter the drive and glimpse the house with pool set in front, the wow factor kicks in. This only increases entering the house and exploring the massive rooms, both up stairs and down.
Everything is tastefully done, clean, and obviously has been thought about.
It's just wow!
The kitchen is very well appointed and you guessed it. Big.
Two reception rooms give more than ample space for two families, although we used only one, still having plenty of room.
Bathrooms are good, fridge and freezer huge.
Two master bedrooms are lovely, although one has a rather attractive but short old bed that proved somewhat of a grumble to the couple in that room.
Plenty of other rooms for the children and teens. All good.
The pool was brilliant, pool furniture and inflatables an excellent addition.
Table tennis, Badminton and Boules all good ideas.
An extra eating area under a barn roof near the kitchen proved popular.
Communications by the owner were excellent.
All in all, superb.
Havre de paix
Magnifique maison de maître. Décorée avec goût. Calme et tranquillité assurés.
Il n’y manque rien. Piscine de belle taille, parfaitement entretenue, table de ping-pong, cuisine immense et totalement équipée, terrain vaste...etc.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour. La région est magnifique.
Nous envisageons déjà d’y retourner.
