Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
The house offers an ideal escape from the madding crowd. It is a great place to chill with friends or family and destress. The house is within 45 minutes of the mountains just over an hour from Toulouse and Pau and close to Lourdes, Tarbes, St Gauden and Auch. There is a good golf course in neighbouring town, Lombez and the village of Boulogne has its own lake with water sports and flumes. There is also a climbing wall close to the lake.
It is equally wonderful for relaxing and for getting fit. If you like mountain trekking some of the best walks in the world are within an hour's drive in the Pyrenees. There are some great cycling routes and we have some bikes for our guests to use.
If you are interested in a Bootcamp holiday please get in touch as we have plans to develop training facilities on site in the very near future.
