House | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 12
A wonderful place to relax and unwind yet very close to a range of outdoor activities to suit every taste.
The house has under floor heating both upstairs and down as well as a wood burning stove which is situated between the lounge and dining area. We find this to be very warm in winter yet cool and airy in summer.
The pool area at the house which is decked has sunbeds and chairs and is very private and secure due to a fence all around it and an alarm.
Gardens and greenery surround the house and there are open fields beyond.

The Midi-Pyrenees region
This is the authentic place to be! With its pure air and peaceful atmosphere, where else can you feel so free while on holiday? Explore this wild preserved nature on foot, by bicycle, in a canoe or from the air for a sense of true freedom...
Nature parks: fauna, flora and people in harmony
Explore nature in all its beauty and diversity in the Parc national des Pyrénées and in the three Regional Nature Parks. These places preserve a delicate balance between natural heritage and sustainable human activities.
Gorges and valleys - for exciting water sports, they have no equal.
Parks and gardens - the parks and gardens of Midi-Pyrénées simply cannot be ignored.
The setting is pure tranquility but with a bustling town not 5km away, you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
There are plenty of restaurants and bars in Lannemezan/La Barthe De Neste.
The Chateau Barbe is particulaly good as is The Casino and The Golf Club.
There is a street market in Lannemezan every Wednesday morning where stalls are plentiful and very varied.
There are numerous festivals in the area including a number of major music festivals.
There is the international jazz festival at Marciac, reportedly the most important outside of America. For Country and Western fans, nearby Mirande offers a yearly festival attended by many stars of country music.
There is also the nearby film festival in Aneres. A search on Google will give details and dates for each of these and other festivals in the area.
Biarritz with its excellent beaches, restaurants and bars is approximately 120km from the house. This equates to about one and a half hours by car.
It is a surfers paradise and has always been one of France’s most welcoming towns.
Cap Breton about the same distance also has beautiful beaches and restaurants a plenty.
Golf at Lannemezan - 18 hole golf course is recognised as the best in the Midi Pyrénées. At 5808 metres in length and par 70, this course in no pushover!

La Barthe De Neste
A bustling village with a brand new tourist information centre where you can find information on the whole region. The village also has a number of small shops, a bakery, bar, cafe, pharmacy, restaurant, hairdressers and (importantly) a fantastic artisan chocolatery. There is an excellent sports centre with gymnasium and superb tennis facilities, including both indoors and outdoor clay courts.
La Barthe De Neste also has a very popular local market every Sunday.
The Haute Pyrenees provides some of the best walking terrain in Europe, with routes and trails to suit all abilities.
The GR10 or Sentier Pyreneenne as it is sometimes called is a classic long distance walk across the Pyrenees from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean that takes a lower route than the more arduous Pyrenean High Route. It passes through striking mountain country and fantastic scenery.
A substantial part of the trek traverses the nearby Neouvielle Nature Reserve as the path weaves its way up through the Aygues Cluses valley and over the Col de Madamette. The valleys in the Neouvielle are marked with lots of little rivers and lakes as well as diverse wildlife and beautiful flowers
There is skiing at St Lary (30 minutes) the biggest ski area in the Pyrenees. It is becoming more and more popular with a huge new amount of investment in snow canons and lifts.
It is here that you will find access to every possible outdoor pursuit too, including walking, hiking, cycling, horseriding, fishing, (permits must be obtained), bird & wildlife watching, canoeing, hot-air ballooning, canyoning, white-water rafting, parapenting, motorcycling, swimming in mountain lakes and rivers, exploring the numerous caves in the area, or if you prefer sightseeing.
We are also less than 45 minutes from the resort of Peyregude and approximately one hour from la Mongie.
The Tour De France travels through Lannemezan every year.
The Aquensis thermal spa in Bagnères-de-Bigorre is considered by many to be one of the best spas in europe and is certainly worth a visit.
"In an exceptional decor, Aquensis, thermal spa offers a beautiful place of relaxation where the hot and beneficial thermal waters and its personalized care shall give you a sense of wellbeing and pleasure.
This thermal spa welcomes you into a magnificent architectural and ecologically designed space, a harmonious blend of wood, glass and light."
There are some lovely walks and restaurants in Bagnères and combined with the spa can make a great day out.
Lourdes is less than an hours drive away the small town of Lourdes centres around the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes, the largest Catholic pilgrimage destination in France and perhaps the most popular Catholic sacred site in the world. The town of only 17,000 inhabitants receives more than 5 million pilgrims and tourists each year.
