Steeped in character, our French hilltop farmhouse gite offers beauty, history and charm with stunning countryside scenery, combined with all modern conveniences to ensure a comfortable and memorable stay and is sure to enchant you. Nestling in wooded foothills this beautiful gite tantalises you towards the awesome mountains in one direction and affords a long-range valley vista in the other. Stroll along peaceful lanes looking out for deer or wild boar and enjoy the famed sunsets and astonishing bird-swept skies from the tranquil garden.
But we don't just offer a rural idyll, as we are ideally placed within easy reach of ski slopes, mountain walking, fishing, the Atlantic coast, prehistoric caves, lakes, markets just to mention a few activities - not forgetting the bustling towns of Toulouse, Pau, Tarbes, Lourdes with all their cultu...

Interaction with guests
I am always here to greet my guests, welcome them & show them round the gite. The day after arrival you are invited for an aperitif in the main house if you would like to come. I am here to answer any questions you may have about the gite or area, but otherwise leave you in peace! The gite is separate from the main farmhouse & so you can be as independent as you wish.

We booked this with my wife's brother and his wife - all of us celebrating our Golden Wedding anniversary. We were there for three weeks and it wasn't enough. The Gite was all we wanted and more. The weather was perfect ( always a bonus). The scenery was stunning and the locals extremely friendly. We aren't ones for lazing about...

We know this area of France having had our own holiday home for 22 years, recently sold. We stayed at Gite du Paradis for a week and were very, very impressed with everything it had to offer. The gite itself is like a home from home with all you could possibly want already there. The house and the style are...

Being on the Gers border, this area is famous for it's foie gras, confit de canard (duck), noire de Bigorre (free-range pork) and various farmers markets and bric a brac sales.
In the next village, 3 mins' drive, there is an excellent pizzeria & in Castelnau Magnoac, 12 mins' drive, a great restaurant serving a range of fine food.
There are riding stables in Castelnau, tennis courts in Monleon Magnoac, 10 mins' drive & an excellent golf course in Lannemezan, 20 mins' drive, where you'll also find a huge market on Wednesdays.
Getting around
The area is very rural and so you will need your own car. If you wish to sightsee in Toulouse you can park your car at Lannemezan station & take a train from there into the centre of the city. If you are not driving from home you can hire a car from any of the airports or from the station at Tarbes.
