Ground floor studio in a south-facing ecohouse. A spacious and charming room with en-suite shower, private compost loo. Basic cooking facilities. Designed for retreats, a place to relax, paint, write and be. The property is 10 minutes drive from a vibrant village with all amenities. The amazing panoramic view at 830m altitude is breathtaking. Fresh mountain air, spring water, a haven for walkers in a national park. A chance detox from the internet and reconnect to nature.

The space

The studio is a converted ground floor barn, restored to a very high standard (2005) into a wood-and-stone ecohouse. It has its own entrance. There's a small kitchen with a fridge, a mini oven, electric rings and a kettle. The bedroom is very spacious with a shower room. There is a very neat and clean composting toilet in the entrance hall.
When it isn't booked, the room is used for yoga and meditation, it has a wooden floor and hemp-and-lime walls and a very special quiet quality. Plenty of room to do your workout. There's an outside kitchen for cooking meat/fish or eating al fresco, and aromatherapy outside bathtub nest. Reflexology and head massage by appointments.

Judith was a great, helpful and caring host. The studio is relaxing and well organised. The outdoor of the house is properly amazing, the outdoor kitchen is also a great spot. We loved the outdoor bath with candles. Definitely a place that I would recommend.

Judith is a most welcoming host! She made us feel very much at home and gave excellent advice on the area and such. The house is situated in the most beautiful spot and the views are spectacular. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back.

Judith looked after us really well, and I recommend this place to anyone who is looking to escape to somewhere beautiful. The eco house is a nice place to read and escape the heat, and there are loads of walks with amazing views and lakes only a short drive away. We felt really looked after by Judith: she had great advice about the area and made a tasty breakfast.

We had a wonderful time in Judith's beautiful eco-house. It truly has magnificent views.! Eating breakfast in the morning sun while enjoying the views was a bliss! The bedroom is very large and bright. It is furnished and decorated simply but with taste. It boasts a basic kitchen with everything you need should you want to prepare a meal - we enjoyed all ours on the terrasse. Judith welcomed us kindly and attended to our special needs. If you enjoy hiking, there are several options within a short driving distance (Col de Port is only 10 min away). We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet stay in the mountains. Thomas and Margot

A stunning area and a lovely accommodation with a very warm and generous host. It very much fit the bill for me and for someone looking to find a place of quiet in the Pyrenees area it is ideal. I had a lovely time here.

I am an Englishwoman living in France for the past 16 years. I speak French and English.I love living here in the mountains in my beautiful ecological house .I am very practical and love gardening , singing and cooking. I also practice reflexology and head massage.

For years I have wanted to find a property that can offer a unique retreat space , not just for holidays. We all face times when we need to be alone but in secure , comfortable and peaceful surroundings.( La roulotte is for one and the studio for two.) I feel very fortunate to be able to share my wonderful home, and meet so many new and interesting people, from all over the world.

My life motto would be.... don't wait, do it now !
