"Relaxing envirenment with a touch of class"
We were not dissapointed at all with our stay, you have the choice of either relaxing by the pool and surrounding gardens, wonderful walks soaking up the beautiful scenery or to taste the local wine (highly reccomended), short drive to shops and restaurants fab views of the Pyrenees .Great place to stay and ran by great people. Kids loved it .

"Great accomodation rural style and great hosts!"
We arrived at our Gites at Le Prielle following a very cold few days in Paris and were delighted to find December day time temperatures at 15 degrees. We were expecting a rather cold experience, holid… More

"Relaxing home from home."
Staying at Le Prielle was a great tonic for us all. We have two teenage boys and two smaller girls and we were all catered for with so much to see and do.
Simon and Paulette made us feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble.
The girls thoroughly enjoyed collecting eggs from the chickens and helping Paulette in the veggie garden as well as swimming in the pool, which has magnificent views over looking the French countryside, a perfect place for an appretif before heading off into Madiran for dinner.
There is plenty to see and do in this region of France, from crazy golf to local village fetes.
Le Prielle caters for all, families with young children, there's swings and sandpits and the pool. For teenagers there are many local activities to partake in and for the adults Simon will take you wine tasting and recommend the best local markets to go to!
We are returning guests as Le Prielle gives us the opportunity to relax, chill out and spend time together as a family.
As a family we would highly recommend Le Prielle.

"Plenty for the kids to do and plenty of space"
Le Prielle gave our children plenty of space to burn off their energy in the pool, on the football/rugby pitch and vineyards. This allowed my wife and I to relax, get into some good books and plan some excursions. Simon and Paulette gave us excellent recommendations for local vineyards all within 10 miles.
It was also a good base for visiting Lourdes, the ancient city of Pau and the Pyrenees.
Hope to go back for the wine festival in the near future and the local Marciac Jazz festival
