    Rental Home – 
    7 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12
    Eco-restored farmhouse with swimming pool and view to Pyrenees; sleeps 12
    With beautiful views south to the Pyrenees, this 3-storey, traditional, large farmhouse is ideal for an extended family, a group of friends or for two or three couples with children.
    It has been ecologically restored by the owner-architect, combining traditional methods and materials with modern science. Colombage, the old French half-timbered construction, has been adapted for external cladding and internally the walls have been lined with straw, clay and lime, which provide breathability and good insulation, keeping the house agreeably cool in summer and warm in winter. Hot water and heating are partially provided by solar panels situated near the swimming pool.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014 for a stay in June 2013

We had a fantastic holiday with a large group of friends and family. There is loads of space inside and outside for extended groups to gather - and for everyone to have their own space too. The pool is clean, big and kid-secure. The pool changing room and hot shower are a bonus in terms of keeping the house free from wet kids, towels, etc.

The kitchen is massive and exceptionally well equipped - and we enjoyed having lunch and evening meals under the grapevines in front of the house. While recently developed from old farm buildings, the house draws heavily on local traditional architecture and building techniques.

The village of Ponlat is very quite and the nearby local towns and markets are charming - with very few tourists in sight. There is great walking / biking straight out of the house or a short drive into the Pyrenees. Its an easy drive from Toulouse airport, mainly on the motorway (just over an hour).

Nous avons passés deux agréables semaines en famille. La grande maison est bien équipée (4 salles de bain et 4 wc), deux salons en plus du salon télé au rez de chaussée. Malgré ces facilités, le beau temps nous a permis de profiter de la grande table sous les feuilles de vigne devant la maison.
Ponlat est situé aux pieds des Pyrénées, dans le Comminge. Saint Gaudens, à 4 km, dispose de tous les commerces et grandes surfaces pour les courses.
C'est notre 2ème séjour dans ce gite et nous espérons pouvoir revenir en 2015.
Encore merci à M. et Mme Smoor pour leur gentillesse.
