    Nestled among ancient oak and chestnut trees at the end of a picturesque valley with a beautiful view of the Pyrennees, the morning birdsong or calls of owls and crickets in the evenings is all that disturbs the peace. The gite is part of what was once the wine 'chai' for this rural property and still retains it's old beams and stone masonry whilst offering all modern conveniences and comforts. Guests often comment that this gite is a 'great find' and feels more like a home than a rental property.

    And of course there is the sparkling pool surrounded by parasols and comfortable loungers with the 'summer kitchen' and pool BBQ at the disposal of gite guests who normally have the pool all t...

    Additional amenities & feature info
    On one floor and suitable for handicapped access throughout. A large sitting/dining with cool tile flooring throughout is complemented by a brand new, well equipped kitchen, a bedroom with a superking and a spacious bathroom with separate WC and 'Italian' walk in shower. The 'sofabed' in the sitting room may also accomodate 2 more guests or children if required but in all honesty this is more of a retreat for a couple seeking tranquility in a stunning and central location.

    Towels and linens are changed weekly. If additional linen is required more frequently, a fee of €10 per set will apply. We ask that guests please bring their own beach towels.

This was our second visit and will not be our last. We are seasoned cottage and gite holidaymakers and without doubt this is one of the best. Quality of refurbishment, retention of character, beautiful furnishings, thoughtful homely touches, beautiful spacious grounds, stunning scented garden pool area and the most relaxing outdoor covered patio area with distant views of the majestic... more

What a gorgeous place! Beautifully furnished, with great attention to detail. A real home from home, and we're pretty fussy! Pamela was so welcoming and helpful, and we would like to highly recommend this beautiful little retreat to anyone who wants to put their feet up in terrific surroundings and just enjoy the peace. Thank you Pamela! more

The Gite is set in a lovely location with a stunning view of the mountains on clear days. Easy to find following owners directions from Toulouse airport. Car is essential though as it is in a very rural location. The gite had everything you need for your stay, and the owner was very helpful and friendly without being intrusive, and... more

Management response:

The gite now has its own livebox installed, which will solve the problem of WiFi access. more
