    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    Situated on the route de Saint Jacques de Compostelle ('Way of Saint James' the famous pilgrims walking route to Lourdes and on into Spain) our home is a beautiful stone farmhouse with outbuildings including a stone pigeonnier full of character, which was converted into a two bedroom/bathroom gite/cottage in 2010.

    The large 6mx12m salt water pool is surrounded by a lovely stone wall sheltering it from any wind and it is also gated for security and the safety of young children.

    For those who want to burn off some excess energy or escape from the midday heat we have added a games room converted from an old stone barn. It has a full size table tennis table, professional table football, large air hockey table and dartboard, as well as a fridge, stepping machine and a seating area....

This is a fabulous location with two Gites and a B&B on site. We took both Le Farat Gites for our extended family of 9. All the accommodation is beautifully presented and all the fixtures are of quality. Each of the four bedrooms had its own en suite. The hosts Allison and Nick could not have been more helpful. Although... more

Looking forward to seeing you all again in 2015. Thank you for your review, it is much appreciated. more

Returned to Le Farat for a second time and stayed in the newly converted gite. The refurbishment has been skillfully and imaginatively completed. The games room and the cycles are also a great addition. Excellent facilities and hosts in a lovely location we have booked again for next year. more

Management response:

We are glad you appreciate our hard work and feel very pleased we have hit the right mark for you. Hope to see you again soon. more
