Situated in the quiet rural village of Arguenos in the Pyrenean foothills close to the Spanish border and 30mins from the ski slopes. The property has been recently and extensively renovated to a very high standard including lime render, oak staircase and flooring, fully fitted farmhouse kitchen with granite worktops, an AGA as well as an additional fan oven and induction hob. The luxurious bedrooms on the first floor include a large king size room with twin aspect overlooking the stream, log burner and ensuite bathroom with separate large monsoon shower and a large double bedroom with ensuite bathroom and monsoon shower. There is also the option of a travel cot and baby changing. On the 2nd floor there is a large twin room with sofa and desk (limited head room and low beams - ideally suited to children, please see pictures). There is a further shower room with large monsoon shower on the ground floor. In the snug lounge there is a large log burner and seating for 6. This room boasts a Denon surround sound cinema system, large flat screen TV, Apple TV and DVD player. A separate utility room with washing machine is also situated on the ground floor. There are thermostatically controlled radiators in every room and heated towel rails in the 3 bathrooms. A stable door in the kitchen leads to a large decked terrace area overlooking the stream. The garden extends beyond the stream and is laid to grass with a selection of young fruit trees, large mountain pines and walnut trees. To the front of the property is a large gravelled driveway with parking for three cars and undercover parking under the barn. A bistro table sits under the mature grapevine and there is a further small lawned garden to the front overlooking the stream and with a washing line. The house lies at the centre of mountain biking and hiking territory with the 2017 Tour de France route virtually circling the village! Col des Ares is a short drive/cycle away and for the more adventurous hikers the Cagire mountain route leads from a neighbouring village. The local area is mostly for the pastoral farming of cattle, goats and horses as well as large areas of forest. Wildlife in the area is in abundance with an array of butterflies, birds of prey and deer. You may also spot glow worms, mink, boar, and even the occasional bear! If you are looking for a quiet rural mountain location you will not be disappointed. Freshly baked croissants and baguettes can be purchased in nearby Juzet d'lzaut (6 mins away) which also has a boucherie. The beautiful market town of Aspet (13 mins away) boasts a number of bars, restaurants and stores as well as a pharmacy, doctors surgery and well stocked Carrefour market. This property is a rare gem in a mountain paradise. Please note small children would need to be supervised at all times due to the close proximity of the stream. For this reason, whilst the property is well equipped for babies (cot, changing mat, fireguard and highchair) it may not be suitable for toddlers due to the stream in the garden. Guests are responsible for supervising their children's safety at all times.More

This cottage is located in a small hamlet of complete tranquility. The scenery is breathtaking, and other than the lowing of cattle, the gentle ringing of the goat-bells and the occasional bark of a dog, the only sound is of the stream that runs through...More

About the neighborhood
The area is popular with hikers, skiers and cyclists and has many cycle trails, ski resorts and footpaths to suit all abilities. The village is often on the Tour de France route and in 2017 was virtually circled by the popular race! Col des Ares is a short drive/cycle away and for the more adventurous hikers the Cagire mountain route starts in the neighbouring village. Le Mourtis ski resort is 30mins up the mountain and Luchon, St Lary, Piau Engaly, Peyregaudes (France) and Baqueira (Spain) ski resorts are also within easy reach. The property is close to the Spanish border and so guests can enjoy Paella by the river in Bossost and Viella whist also stocking up on cheaper fuel and alcohol.
Getting around
The property is in the rural village of Arguenos and so a car will be necessary. Freshly baked croissants and baguettes can be purchased in the neighbouring village Juzet d'lzaut (6 mins away) where there is also a boucherie. For a larger shop guests will want to drive into the market town of Aspet (13mins) where there is a well stocked Carrefour market as well as many other stores, a pharmacy, doctors surgery, restaurants, bars and craft shops. Aspet market is held on Wednesday and Saturday mornings and is well worth a visit. Large out of town stores such as L'eclerc and Lidl can be found in St Gaudens (30mins).
