Perfect for families and couples, the house is set as part of a large French farmhouse. With large rooms, stunning views of the Midi-Pyrenees and a huge garden it is a wonderful rustic French retreat. In the summer - pool, large terrace and BBQ for relaxing sun-drenched evenings. In the winter - massive fireplace and kitchen ideal for creating warming dishes and snuggling on the sofas. There is no TV and basic Wifi, meaning you can really cut off from the world and relax.
The house is ancient - 17th Century - it's a beautiful rustic space with many original features - from the cedar in the garden to the uneven steps! It's our home as well as a holiday rental, and we hope you will feel at home and love it as we do.
Inside, big spacious rooms, with high ceilings and big shuttered windows - perfect for keeping cool in the summer and warm in winter. Our shelves are stocked with books and board games, our kitchen has all the equipment you need for your holiday. Simple bedrooms are comfortable and the complete peace you can find in them should give you some wonderful sleep. The main bathroom is designed for total relaxation with a bath ample in size for two. An additional two bathroom and a shower room mean nobody needs to disturb you as you soak. The terrace runs the whole length of the house, with wonderful sunset views and excellent for quiet breakfasts al fresco.
Outside, we have a big private garden for guests' exclusive use. There is a shared courtyard to the front, where we share evening drinks, games of boules and barbecues. There's a shared pool and plenty of other shared green space for kids and adults alike.
You get two self contained floors of the house for your full use. This includes the bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchen, terrace, garden and living space. You have your own entrance. Guests can access all the shared facilities, too (pool and grounds).
NOTE: POOL IS CLOSED OUTSIDE OF SUMMER MONTHS
We also rent the rooms separately if you're a smaller group - you can do this through our separate listings on airbnb.
Interaction with guests
We live in a self contained apartment on the ground floor of the house, so we're there to help you get settled and can be available as much or as little as you like. We've spent a lot of time in this part of the world and can give you loads of advice and ideas of places to visit and eat.
If you have specific activities in mind, we can help you arrange them - for example we can help hikers get to and from their walk start and end points, make packed lunches etc.
Other things to note
We're very baby and family friendly - we have a travel cot, highchair and various other baby equipment that guests can use.
There's a friendly farm next door, with cows, chickens, dogs and more.
