A converted barn into a superb, comfortable gite. Made of stone and chestnut construction, many of the features have been left in place and worked around to leave a wonderful character to your surroundings, for when you relax at the end of the day; whether you've been sightseeing or playing in the Pyrenees

The bedroom windows all look out straight onto the mountains, spectacular!! The location is excellent for most outdoor activities, nearest ski resort is only 25 minutes away, and Spain (for cheap booze and petrol) is a mere 20 minute drive from us.

Further details outdoors

Set in the idyllic little village of Ore, surrounded by mountains, it really is a beautiful place to be. The steps to our house are the hottest steps in the world during the summer, and a great place to sit with a cold beer, whilst soaking up the scenery.

The Pyrenees are a big adventure playground for everyone, come and play in them!!

We strongly advise you contact us if you have a smaller party to discuss prices, as we have a smaller gite at this location.

Further details

For those that want to learn to ski, although I'm not an instructor, my background in skiing is very good (ex-RAF champion and British team), so for those starting out I can point you in the right direction,or, escort the more advanced of you about the slopes.

The Midi-Pyrenees region

Right in the heart of the Pyrenees mountains. The weather is very moderate considering the altitude, but the southerly location makes for very warm/hot summers, that seems to last forever. Of course there's snow in the winter for all that lovely skiing.

The Pyrenees are older than the Alps and have some interesting prehistoric caves to visit with some of the oldest hand paintings in Europe. St.Bertrand de Comminges is just down the road, a wonderful walled village with a magnificent cathedral dating back to 1300's. Luchon is a 20 minute drive, the capital of the Spa towns of the Pyrenees; for spas and thermal dips, massage and treatments. 5 ski resorts all reachable within 1 hour. This is of course, Tour de France country, and once again it passes the top of our village as they descend the Col des Ares. Every year it comes through the Pyrenees and we're never more than a few minutes from it here.

The river Garonne is a 5 minute drive for fishing and white water rafting.

Troubat a 10 minute drive away is excellent for climbing and has in the past hosted the World Championships. In Ore itself there is an excellent crag for the more experienced among you.

Bagneres de Luchon

Luchon is a lovely town with some good cafes and restaurants. Market day is a Saturday, to pick up some bargains. There is a choice of supermarkets here for all your groceries.

Ore itself doesn't have any facilities, it's just beautiful here. You can set off from here by foot for some excellent walking. The cycling around here is a dream for the enthusiast, and can be easy going for the rest of us.

Most outdoor activities are almost on our doorstep and certainly not far away; we're on hand to point you the right way and answer most questions.
