Location description from owner

The Midi-Pyrénées 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.

Festivals
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.

Walking
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.

St Lary-Soulan
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), Muse de la Valle d'Aure and Les Aigles d'Aure (Aure Eagles) which is open from April until mid September.

The Aquensis thermal spa in Bagnres-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 Bagnres and combined with the spa can make a great day out.

Lourdes
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.

Lannemezan

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.

Try some wine tasting at some of the region's vineyards including Jurancon, Madiran, Pacherenc, Cotes de St Mont and Tursan.

“Good for larger groups and families - in a great area”

Reviewed 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!

“Fabulous location, superb views and great facilities”

Reviewed 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!

“lovely spot”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2012

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

“Perfect Relaxing Stay”

Reviewed 4 Sep 2012

We travelled in a group of 14, comprising 4 children under 4 years old and 10 adults, a fairly large group of friends, and had a fabulous relaxing time at Graham's farmhouse. We got exactly what we wanted, which was some peace and quiet and a big enough plot for us to just lie down and get away from it all, which we achieved perfectly. This is not a place to visit for nightlife or partying, but you probably guessed that from the advert, but for a rustic farmhouse in the country, with great views, a pool and a hot tub to chill in and big enough tables both inside and out to break bread at this was just right. Top tip? The market on a Wednesday has a man who will fill your water bottles with wine for about €1 per litre - and it is decent! Otherwise just have a barbecue, relax in the tub and enjoy. Nice place, we'd go back.

“Stunning location, great views, many modcons and adequate comfort”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2011

A quiet farmhouse with stunning views. Househas plenty of space and many "boys toys". Kitchen is perfectly acceptable with the ability to cook well. Local area pleasent and unspoilt with little feeling of being too touristy. Good restaurants locally but beware of Monday closing. I believe Graham is upgrading the basics at present and these should increase the comfort considerably. Lots of beds, bathrooms and towels. We were too early to use the pool but the setting is peacefula dn provides a good base for may types of holiday.

“Excellent location for walking in Pyrennees (with a car)”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2011

There were 12 of us, on a week's walking trip, so we needed a large house with 12 separate beds. There were not quite enough beds when we arrived (lots of double beds) but Graham had them in place well before bed-time. We cooked quite a bit and the large kitchen / diner was great for this - also lots of space to eat outside. Decent sized pool and hot tub (stopped working but again quickly fixed) We would come back except we never do (come back) - off to Italian Alps this year

“Marvellous rambling place with stunning views”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2011

Stayed here with a load of biker mates and wives. Had a marvellous stay with a friendly and welcoming host. Excellent base to come back to after a good days ride out to relax in the jacuzzi or have a swim in the pool and then chill out with a BBQ looking out at the Pyrenees. Everyone said they had a whale of a time with some mentioning a return visit.

“Amazing views - great holiday”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2011

The location was great. No info on how to get in. Had to phone to find out where key was- but did get in eventually. With previous holiday houses there was always someone there to meet and greet. Sitting on the patio looking over to the mountains was unforgettable. A bit confusing as to what to do when things didn't work eg internet and hot tub - but got there eventually and when help arrived they were very pleasant. I hear there is a new kitchen but we found the old one fine.

Meet and greet is now available upon request. We now have a detailed information book with details on how to operate all facilities, including hot-tub, heated swimming pool, all kitchen equipment including the Rangemaster cooker, the commercial coffee machine, the log-burners, the two stereos, TV, Satellite receiver and DVD player. Rulebooks and instructions are also there for a range of board games and we have laminated rules and instructions for petanque - 6 sets available for use. If you do need to phone us or our local management company then we are happy for you to use the house phone. Its free to call all local French and UK landlines.
