We chose this gite for its proximity to the mountains, and for the numerous foot-paths that are immediately accessible, including easy walking around the lac de Lourdes. The gite has been carefully restored and has a magical, uninterrupted, southerly-facing panoramic view of the High Pyrénées. Our 3 dogs were welcomed by the friendly proprietor. Amenities were only 10 minutes away in Lourdes and in St Pé - despite the absolute calm of the gite, whose only neighbours are sheep. Thank you Cécile and Christian for creating such a wonderful place to escape the noise and distractions of modern life.
