    Additional amenities & feature info
    The property is newly converted, so virtually everything is brand new in 2011.
    The gite is very spacious and would be better described as a holiday house rather than a gite. There is a beautiful large fitted kitchen with a large granite central island, Bosch range cooker, built in Neff dishwasher, washing machine, Belfast sink and solid oak worktops.
    Two large double bedrooms and a smaller room with bunk beds - in the white bedroom a cot and/or additional single bed could easily be accommodated if requested. The white bedroom has a brand new en-suite shower room. There is a second large bathroom with large shower and roll top bath - again all brand new. There is a separate dining room with a double height ceiling, table and chairs for six. The first floor lounge is accessed via a...

    How to get there
    Airport: Tarbes/Lourdes and Pau: 21.7 mi
    Railway: Tarbes: 18.6 mi
    Ferry: Santander and Bilbao (also St Malo and Caen): 155.3 mi
    To drive from Calais to our house in Gascony takes between 10-12 hours, virtually all by autoroute - approx 650 miles. St Malo, Caen and Bilbao/Santander (Brittany Ferries) are all closer but entail a longer sea crossing. Our nearest airports are Pau Pyrenees and Tarbes/Lourdes (both about 1 hours drive to the house) but alternatives are Toulouse, Biarritz and Bourdeaux all of which are about 2 hours drive from the house. It is essential to have a car.

    Ryanair, BMI Baby and Easyjet have very reasonable flights from the UK to this part of SW France.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Our extended family, including young people, stayed here for one week as a base for the Marciac Jazz Festival, only about a 20 minute drive away. Communication with the owner was great, and keys were waiting for us when we arrived. Really well converted and tastefully decorated house with everything you would expect (and probably need!), including a large collection... more

A wonderfully relaxing holiday in a beautifully decorated holiday barn. The kitchen was brilliant, so much so that we rarely ate out. The gas BBQ was put to good use! The pool and garden was where we spent the majority of the time although the upstairs lounge was very comfortable. The large trees gave lots of shade from the hot... more

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This is a well appointed holiday home in an interesting area of France. The house includes lots of thoughtful extras eg hair dryer, first aid kit, torches which we haven't found in many of the gites we have stayed in over the years. It has been decorated and accessorised to a high standard and is well maintained. The pool is... more
