About the home
The farmhouse benefits from the luxury of an outdoor 6-seater hot-tub situated in the privacy of the main garden with fantastic panoramic views across to the snow-capped mountains. The perfect way to start the day - laying back in the tub, watching the sun come up over the mountains or to end an active day of cycling, walking or skiing - laying back and looking up at the stars. The heated pool in the main garden has great views of Pic Du Midi.
The property can comfortably accommodate 16+ people with 8 bedrooms. 2 living areas and 5 new bathrooms. Ideally placed to explore the mountains. Great golf nearby. The farmhouse and gardens have a number of private living areas.
Absolutely perfect choice for groups of all sizes and family gatherings.

Total guests now can be 20 plus.
Please enquire for details.

House was just what we were looking for. Perfect for our families with 6 under 13s. Hot tub and TV (virtually a cinema!) were hugely popular with them. The coffee machine was quite an amusing novelty for the grown ups! Kitchen was just right for evening meals and morning breakfasts for 12 and we were even visited by two friends from Northern Spain who took numbers up to 14 and slept in the apartment. With all the bathrooms the house still did not feel overfull. So a terrific week all round, thank you. Regards - David
What a fantastic place! We had a great time. Really relaxing. Loved the pool & the hot-tub, the stars and the mountains, awesome - Stu & Miriam
This is a beautiful setting and a very restful place to be in - Agnes.
Wish I could capture and take home the beauty and peace of the evenings we enjoyed, dining under the stars. A truly wonderful time to remember. Hope to come back one day - Richard & Maria
The holiday was GREAT we Love your Place - John
Thanks for a wonderful holiday. I've had nothing but glowing reports from all of the rest of the party. Thanks again for a marvellous time - Frank
We had a fantastic stay. What a beautiful setting. Some of our best days were spent just enjoying the garden and the immediate surrounds. Our daughter loved next door's tractors. We loved the birdlife, the hot tub, shooting stars and an amazing thuderstorm (as you predicted) on the middle Sunday- so spectacular! We had a really unforgettable and life-changing holiday! - Anna
Superb property in a fantastic location.
We stayed in this property with a large group of friends in February. There was plenty of room for everyone with a separate lounge area for the children. Each family was able to have their own bathroom - a definite bonus.
The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The hotel style coffee machine was particularly impressive!
The property was very clean when we arrived.
The well stocked supermarket was just a few minutes drive away.
The ski area took about 35 minutes to reach and was an easy drive on good roads.
The views from the property were amazing and it was good to be a little away from the ski area as there was plenty to do for the non-skiers in our group. The hot tub proved very popular with adults and children alike.
We would definitely like to visit the property again. - David
Fantastic week, great skiing up at St Lary. We are already talking about coming back next year. Stewart loved the kitchen and all the facilities and all the boys enjoyed the movies and the coffee machine.
Difficult to put into words how good the hot-tub felt after a days skiing - Steve
Further details outdoors:
Beautiful gardens with oak, chestnut, beach, fig, peach, plum, apple, pear and other trees. Main courtyard is surrounded by laurel, bay and lilac bushes. Separate private shaded areas to go and relax with a book.
The farmhouse and gardens have a number of private living areas. Small groups can gather in different places without distubing others. Importantly it is possible to sit everyone inside or outside for meals.
Perfect choice for larger groups and family gatherings.
The farmhouse benefits from the luxury of an outdoor six-seater hot-tub situated in the privacy of the main courtyard with fantastic panoramic views. The perfect way to start the day - watching the sun come up over the mountains or relax at the end of a days walking, cycling, skiing or rafting - laying back and looking up at the stars.
A selection of bicycles are available and free to use.
We've now got 8 brand new Giant Defy 5 2012 cycles available for hire at a small weekly rate - please enquire for details.

No matter where you choose to relax outdoors you will have fantastic views of the mountains.

"Got back today and I can speak on behalf of the whole party to say that we loved the house.
The children loved the hot tub and we were in it day and night (including the adults)
We went to visit the local Le Gouffre D'Esparros which the kids loved. The information that everyone left was fantastic. I hope that we can visit again as my family I'm sure would like to visit the place we have all been raving about..
The heating was fine, loved the fire! Also, left a saw which we bought at DIY store.
Thanks again for having us in your house and look forward to visiting again, this has got to be one of the best New years we have all had.
Kind Regards - Zoe & family

The Midi-Pyrenees / Hautes-Pyrenees region
The Pyrenees mountains form the border between France and Spain. The Pyrenees are one of the last wilderness areas of Western Europe. An extensive network of paths enable walkers to quickly find themselves miles from civilisation and surrounded by the spectacular beauty of the mountains.
Ideally situated for exploring the mountain landscapes of the Hautes Pyrenees, our farmhouse provides the perfect base from where you can discover something that appeals to your sense of adventure or if your idea of the perfect holiday involves less energetic pursuits, our farmhouse would make an entirely great choice for someone who is planning on doing nothing more than relaxing in a situation of serene rustic seclusion while appreciating good food, fine wine and spectacular views from beside the pool or in the hot-tub.
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 or I can provide links on request.
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.
Tour De France
Every year the tour de France passes very close. In 2007 it was literally at the bottom of the road less than a mile away. This year the July 12th stage is from Saint-Gaudens to Tarbes and so again it will be passing nearby.
Plenty to do and see in this typical Pyrenean resort. It is situated just up the road in the Aure Valley, with mountain peaks reaching 3092 metres.
It is here that you will find access to every possible outdoor pursuit 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.
There is also the fantastic Sensora Fitness Centre in the centre of the village which has landscaped pools, jacuzzis and saunas and a selection of spa treatments.
The Aragnouet-Bielsa Tunnel is 20km away and links the resort to Spain.
Nearby activities for children include the Maison d'Ours (House of Bears), Musée de la Vallée d'Aure and Les Aigles d'Aure (Aure Eagles) which is open from April until mid September.
The Aquensis thermal spa in Bagnères-de-Bigorre.
This 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.
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.
The beaches of Biarritz are 2 hours away on the Atlantic coast and can make an interesting, contrasting day out or even the incredibly pretty seaside town of Collioure a 3 hour drive in the opposite direction on the Mediterranean.
The Lannemezan area
Nearest Village - La Barthe De Neste (1 minute drive or a 20 minute walk)
La Barthe De Nest is 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.
Nearest Town - Lannemezan (5 Minute drive)
Lannemezan is principally a small market town, but its situation guarantees the vistor some beautfiul scenery and walking routes including 400 hecatres of woodland. There are a dozen restaurants and lots of amenties (supermarkets, banks, post office, hospital, doctor, chemist etc). There are many streams & rivers for fishing. The River Save and River Baise both have their source in the Plateau de Lannemezan. There are 2 lakes, La Plantade where fishing is possible, and the leisure lake Le Lac de la Demi-Lune where there are pedaloes, ducks and swans to keep the children amused.
Lannemezan has a great market every Wednesday and is a great place to meet people and stock up on local wine, cheeses and other produce. You can find local red or rose wine for about a euro a litre and it is the same wine that is used by many local restaurants - take your own containers and join the queue. The local Brebis cheese can normally be found nearby and you can always try before you buy.
Golf at Lannemezan
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!! Set in 40 hectares, level terrain, all the fairways are lined with magnificent mature trees and from the southern end of the course there are stunning views of the Pyrenees. The course is open all the year and visitors are welcome.
Attached to the Club House is the “Pre Vert” restaurant with indoor and outdoor facilities for dining, snacks and drinks. The “Pre Vert” is open throughout the year with a menu that covers everything from omelettes to regional specialities. It is a big favourite with the locals because of its cuisine and the delightful view from the terrace.
South facing driving range : Play from grass or mats (6 covered, 12 exterior).
Putting green and grass bunker in front of the club house.
There are also excellent golf courses in Tarbes and Bagneres - about a 30 minute drive.

18 Mar 2013
We stayed here in February with friends and our respective teenage children. The trip was for skiing in St Lary, which is quite close, and we have stayed before, in the summer, for cycling, walking and relaxing with wine!
Great place to stay with a lovely big kitchen (great to have meals together around the big table), large lounge with log burner for board games after and lots of rooms to sleep everyone. Beware - you will need an alarm clock! I have rarely slept as soundly.
We really love the house and the area so will definitely be back!
14 Mar 2013
Stayed as part of a lads trip to ski in the Pyrenees. about 35 to 40 minutes away from the slopes, but a really scenic road in, and lots of potential stops on the way back to enjoy some apres ski! I particularly liked Arreau, a typically Southern French village great for a coffee and croissant, and maybe a beer after a hard day on the slopes! One of the party complained about the facilities, I don't know why unless he was expecting 5 star luxury. Yes it is rustic, but its a farmhouse, and I found it a comfortable and relaxing after the skiing with the added bonus of the hot tub, which I think was overused! I shall definitely return next year, and maybe in the Summer too! Be nice to see it with its summer hat on!

beautiful location, well appointed house, great views, nice pool, very helpful owner- would happily return.
