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.

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.<BR><BR>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.
