“Could have stayed for a week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

An amazing place in the heart of French country side. I stayed here with my girlfriend and parents. We had a room with a balcony that overlooked the mountains. The area was so quiet and if you are looking for a nice area to relax for a day or two this is it for the area.

I would recommend a GPS sat nav as it can be challenging to find the place.

Jean Louis was very kind and helpful and even booked a table for us at the most beautiful restaurant, with local made food including Foie Gras!!! Le Grillou. His English is excellent.

He also supplied fresh bread, cereal, milk, eggs (on request), local preserves and juice for breakfast. This is amazing considering most French B&B provide just croissants and tea/coffee.

You have to share the kitchen, bathrooms and lounge area with the other guests, but as there were 4 of us we never saw the other 2 sharing.

Will come back again.

Room Tip: Eat at Le Grillou for an amazing dinner experience serving local cuisine and affordable prices

We decided to stay at this hotel on a trip from Collioure in Saint-Jean-de-Luz to break up a trip for two stages, making it less tiring for our baby. We arrived late in the evening and the owner was leaving early in the morning with a group of tourists on horseback to hiking in the Pyrenees. We met a neighbor and showed the house. Since there were no other guests, we have at our disposal was the whole cottage - a cozy living room with fireplace and kitchen with a long table. Despite the fact that the place is far away from civilization, in the house of a great modern plumbing in the shower and toilets, fresh towels, linen and very clean.
The atmosphere in the room and the living room is very cozy, with a soul. Before booking, I watched the video and photos of the hotel, but in reality it looks even better. Our room had a balcony and a view of the field, where they fed the remaining horses, and in the distance we could see the mountains.
The owner, Jean-Louis, came to us late last night, we talked nicely - he told me that he would return around 12 am and tell you more about horses. Unfortunately, we did not have time to wait for his return, as our little boy started to fall asleep and we decided to go, so he slept on the road.
We would love to stay in this hotel for a few days in nature - to take a break from the hustle and bustle of big cities.

Отличное место, чтобы пожить уединенно и при этом в комфорте. Один из лучших и душевных B&B, которые я видел. Наличие лошадей (а также кроликов или зайцев - которых мы видели утром на поле) делает место привлекательным для маленьких детей. Есть масса развлечений -вроде похода на лошадях с треккингом в горах, которыми мы не воспользовались только по причине нехватки времени.

We spent two nights B and B staying in the Bamboo suite which was tasteful and comfortable. Christine and Jean Louis are most charming and interesting hosts and their love of their horses and the area is very obvious. Breakfast was outstanding with lovely home made produce. This is an extremely tranquil place surrounded by lovely gentle countryside and although we did not get round to this it would make an excellent base for gentle walks from the door - which are mapped out in the info pack.
The World Heritage site of ST Lizier is a short drive away and the country to the south is very beautiful. The views of the Pyrennees from the Farm when the weather is clear are stunning. A lovely and unusual place to stay.

We spent three nights in the gite at Haras Picarddu Sant. The gite was really well done with everything that you could want for a short stay. With it being October we made use of the log burning fire in the corner which made the whole thing a very cosy experience. The water bed was novel and very comfortable and the decor was extremely well done with power showers etc. The view from the bedroom was of a field with the Merens horses covered by a backdrop of snow covered mountains. Fantastic.

Breakfast was simple but very nice - filter coffee, country bread and locally made apricot jam. There was also milk and cereal provided if you didn't want the bread. Jean-Louis was a charming host and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone who is thinking of a visit to this beautiful area. The auberge at Tortouse is excellent with enormous portions - make sure you go hungry!

My husband and I were travelling through the Pyrenees and Haras Picard du Sant was our third stop. The Bamboo room was delightful, with great attention to detail and comfort. A highlight was going to meet some of the horses, and I thought I didn't like horses! Would not hesitate to recommend.

My husband and I loved every minute of our stay at Haras Picard and we wish we had stayed longer! Christine and Jean Louis were wonderful, personable hosts who went out of their way to make our stay an experience to remember. We stayed in the "Bamboo Room" which was very comfortable and had great views of their estate. We took the short drive into St Girons for dinner (which Jean Louis reserved for us) at L'Auberge d'Antan and had a fabulous French multi-course dinner. Christine made breakfast in the morning which was simple and perfect and then we got to spend a little quality time with their extremely friendly horses. An experience we will always treasure!!!
