Our extended family, including young people, stayed here for one week as a base for the Marciac Jazz Festival, only about a 20 minute drive away. Communication with the owner was great, and keys were waiting for us when we arrived. Really well converted and tastefully decorated house with everything you would expect (and probably need!), including a large collection... more

A wonderfully relaxing holiday in a beautifully decorated holiday barn. The kitchen was brilliant, so much so that we rarely ate out. The gas BBQ was put to good use! The pool and garden was where we spent the majority of the time although the upstairs lounge was very comfortable. The large trees gave lots of shade from the hot... more

It has been decorated and accessorised to a high standard and is well maintained. The pool is... more

How to get there
Airport: Tarbes/Lourdes and Pau: 35.0 km
Railway: Tarbes: 30.0 km
Ferry: Santander and Bilbao (also St Malo and Caen): 250.0 km
To drive from Calais to our house in Gascony takes between 10-12 hours, virtually all by autoroute - approx 650 miles. St Malo, Caen and Bilbao/Santander (Brittany Ferries) are all closer but entail a longer sea crossing. Our nearest airports are Pau Pyrenees and Tarbes/Lourdes (both about 1 hours drive to the house) but alternatives are Toulouse, Biarritz and Bourdeaux all of which are about 2 hours drive from the house. It is essential to have a car.

Ryanair, BMI Baby and Easyjet have very reasonable flights from the UK to this part of SW France.
