Le Padouen is a 17th century farmhouse situated next to the church square in a village between Castelnau-Magnoac and the Pyrénées with a beautiful pool.

The house is arranged around a grass courtyard with vines growing around the windows and views over the surrounding hillside. A large grassed rear garden sets off a private swimming pool . There is also a children's area with a trampoline. 60 acres of communal woodland can also be found to the rear of the property, where you can enjoy stunning walks following public paths along the canal with fantastic views of the Pyrenees.

And there is plenty to do once you've recharged your batteries… riding, cycling, walking in the mountains, a great children's park to enjoy a poney, toboggan or pedalo ride, with a bouncy castle and merry-go-round, crazy golf, ice-cream stand and cafe. There is also skiing in winter, visiting local caves or the shrine at Lourdes.

The Midi-Pyrénées region

The nearest town is Castelnau-Magnoac, about five miles away, with its market square – and very good Saturday market with local produce – stone and colombage architecture, bank, supermarket market, boulangeries and patisseries, boucherie and two bars. A little further in the other direction is the much larger town of Lannemezan.

For skiers (November-March), and from this year snow scooters, the Val de Louron resorts such as Saint Lary-Soulan are easily accessible in around 50 minutes. If you would like a day out to the coast, the Atlantic and the Mediterranean coasts are a two-hour drive away.

There are many restaurants and auberges in the local area serving fresh produce using only ingredients produced on the farm – especially 'confit' and 'magret de canard', foie gras and cassoulet – at prices from the past in the UK. The food and fresh produce is wonderful.

"wonderful house and hosts"

Lucy and her family were very welcoming and helpful. We had a delightful time at their house. We loved the old charm of it as well as the quiet location and of course, access to the pool. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

"Nice farmhouse to spend your holiday in quiet setting."

property is well located to plan a bike holiday or just a relaxing week away; the owner was living next door and was always available for any questions; upfront we did not realize that we had to enter the garden of the owner to have access to the pool; in the end this was no problem, but first few days we felt a bit like intruders; one minus was the absence of a dish washer; another minus was the view (or lack of view) when sitting in the garden; but overall nice property for a quiet family holiday
