A stunning location for basing your French holiday, complete with 14m luxury pool, beautiful rose garden, two kitchens, a large lounge and outdoor terrace for relaxing together at the end of the day after exploring the region.

The space

Our stunning farmhouse was completely renovated by the resident architect in 2008. With clean, contemporary lines, the open plan farmhouse boasts two state of the art kitchens, a large lounge with chimney, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms equipped with rainforest shower and corner bathtubs . To complete the stunning arena, the farmhouse has a 14 metre swimming pool with breathtaking views of the Pyrenees.

There are two gites on the property that are rented separately, so if your group is large, we can build them into the price.

Guest access

Guests can enjoy the 14m swimming pool, landscaped gardens and surrounding land with hiking trails.

Interaction with guests

We open up the house for you on arrival and are there on checking out. An info pack is left for guests to get to know the house and discover excursions in the region.

Other things to note

There are two gites on the property that are rented separately and have access to the pool and gardens but are positioned discreetly so that each property has privacy from the other.

If you would like not to share with other guests, please inform us at the time of booking. We will block them to prevent date clash and they will be locked from use. If you would like to use them, we will offer a discounted price to your booking.

These rules have been updated to this level as we have had some unfortunate guests who have abused the house. If you are nervous about renting it, perhaps its not for you. It is a wonderful home and should be enjoyed for its beauty and tranquility.

Being a luxury farmhouse with two high end kitchens and Indonesian furniture throughout and on the multiple garden terraces, and not a rustic country home with decrepit flat pack furniture, guests are expected to treat the house with the utmost care.

A cleaner will be provided throughout your stay to help with the basics - changing linen and towels, cleaning the kitchens and straightening up the house. She is NOT to do your dishes and pick up your rubbish.

If you feel you can keep the house in shape during your stay, then talk to us about whether you need the cleaner or not.

Check out is 10am unless agreed with the owner in advance.

On check out day, you must strip the beds, put used towels in the laundry room, clean all plates and glasses used. The check out clean is not to tidy up your mess but to change the beds and towels for the next guests checking in after you.

The house must be left in the same condition as it was presented to you. If not, the deposit will not be refunded.

Strictly no smoking in the house, keep muddy shoes by the doors, and feel free to fill the vases with roses to make yourselves at home.

No pets.

We were a party of 8, three couples and two individuals; all homeowners and seasoned travelers. There is complete consensus this home met our high expectations, and our one-week stay was most enjoyable. Especially valued were the thoughtfully equipped kitchen, spacious enough to accommodate several cooks and observers, the covered terrace where every meal was shared, the pool and the privacy of the sleeping areas. This home offers indoor and outdoor places to share and quiet spaces to retreat. The grounds are stunning and freshly trimmed before our arrival. The local staff are helpful and not intrusive. All in all a very professional arrangement. Communications at every stage were prompt and helpful. It is doubtful one can find a more pleasant experience.

This really is a luxury holiday property. The farmhouse is beautiful, extremely well equipped and in a fabulous setting - although sadly we had an unusually wet week so could only enjoy the wonderful view of the Pyrenees for part of the week . The pool and grounds are gorgeous and the various sculptures and pieces of artwork really enhance both the internal and external environment. The living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms are very spacious and the house was a cool refuge in the heat of the sun. It was great to be able to rely on the window netting to protect us from insects at night. We really enjoyed being able to eat outside in the various dining areas, with different vistas and degrees of sunshine throughout the day. Both the main and summer kitchen are fantastic with every piece of equipment and utensils one could imagine needing - including ice on tap! Having access to good WIFI, Bose music systems and a comprehensive DVD collection was useful on the wet days. Ellie was extremely helpful and accommodating from the outset, providing plenty of helpful information including during our stay when she emailed to check how we were and was able to deal quickly with our minor queries. Helen, our local contact was also very accommodating and our welcome pack - particularly the champagne was most appreciated! It was easy to get into nearby Boulogne to get provisions and the town has good shops and supermarkets. As the facilities in the farmhouse were so good, we were not tempted to go out in the evening for a meal. We didn't really explore the surrounding country side very much either, (except for a trip to Auch on a very wet day) and preferred to enjoy our luxurious surroundings The only drawback to our stay was sharing the lovely pool. On closer review of the website it is clear that there is another rental property on the site with access to the grounds and pool. Given the price band and the fact that the farmhouse is advertised as an entire property on the airbnb website , we had not realised this in advance. We found it rather awkward knowing how to 'fairly' share the outside space especially the pool, and felt conscious of not disturbing the family renting the gite, although they were very pleasant. We would, however, love to come back to the farmhouse, although perhaps in future would join up with a family we know and rent the entire property
