    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5
    This secluded, self-catering Gascon cottage overlooks the central Pyrenees. Dating from around 1800, it's attractively furnished and well equipped. It has many original (and modern) features, beamed ceilings, antique furniture and comfortable fireside seating. The attached latticed barn adds to the traditional feel.

We picked up the key at a neighbor and it was an adventure from then on. The house is 200 years old but fully equipped. There were a lots of written instructions and tons of local maps and guides at the house. We used it as a hub for many local trips to the area's hilltop villages. We will miss... more

We've stayed at this lovely house several times over the last ten years, and it's been a real pleasure each time. Set in stunning rural French countryside, it's like stepping into a calmer, slower world. The house is comfortable and homely, and the gardens make the perfect place to while away lazy afternoons with a book. If you feel more... more
