to retreat, to think, to breath to relax
Our independent, recently renovated and fully equipped gite sleeps 4 people, twin beds can be provided if preferred.
Kitchen and Dining
For your comfort you will find a fully equipped modern ‘retro’ kitchen with Smeg fridge, large gas/electric range cooker, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher etc.etc. We provide a starter pack for your arrival, including freshly baked bread, so whenever you arrive there are some supplies waiting for you.
The ground floor lounge is behind the thick stone walls of this old house making it a cool place on hot days and cosy for the winter months, a lovely place curl up on the sofa to watch TV or read a book. There is also a log burner, logs provided.
Bedrooms and Bathroom
2 double bedrooms, one can be made into a twin bedded room, centrally heated, double glazed and fitted with mosquito netting. Simple, modern and relaxing, both with fabulous views to the foothills of the Pyrenees, who wouldn’t want to wake up those views every morning?
There is a separate bathroom with shower and toilet on this floor.
Wi-fi is available throughout the house, please bear in mind that we are at the very bottom of France and our signal will not support downloading large files – films etc.
The gite entry is level with the garden and downstairs is pretty much on a level but our rooms are on the first floor, whilst the staircase is straight and has a good hand rail we cannot provide accommodation for people who cannot manage stairs, ( Yves-Marie’s mother at 93 could still manage our stairs!)
Dogs are accepted but only small to medium size, please request conditions if you would like to bring your dog.
We have ample off road parking and the front of the house is reserved for Gite Guests, we have alternative parking at the rear of the house should you prefer to have your car ‘out of sight’. If you arrive by motorbike, or if you bring bikes we have a barn for parking these.
No Smoking Policy
We have a strict no smoking policy in the house, electronic cigarettes included, it is allowed in the garden.
The Pool & Garden
The saltwater pool is heated to around 28 degrees and we can provide swimming towels on request. The pool is open every day, all day, if you come with children it is up to you to supervise them, it is not fenced, please bear that in mind when making a booking with children. The pool is closed overnight with a security cover.
Our Beautiful Garden
Our beautiful garden also doubles as Yves-Marie’s ‘sculpture garden’ with exhibits constantly changing. It is big enough to accommodate both us and our guests. The garden has sun loungers, chairs, parasols and tables dotted all over the place, they are for you to enjoy as you please so whether it’s to eat, relax, sunbathe or enjoy a glass of wine outdoors, the choice is yours.
We also grow our own vegetables and there may just be a surplus at the time of your visit which we are happy to share with you.
