FARMHOUSE GITE IN BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN LOCATION WITH ALL YEAR ROUND ACTIVITIES

Campan Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 2-5 persons, peaceful location, 10 mins drive from 100km of skiing

Nestling in the beautiful Campan valley we are surrounded by spectacular views, walks and cycle routes. The spring flowers and autumn colours are wonderful here.

Our accommodation offers a large family bedroom with double bed, full size bunk beds and two seater sofa. Double doors open onto a Juliet balcony. We can provide a cot if required.

The ground floor comprises of a small and cosy living/dining room, a separate fully equipped kitchen and shower with WC. Double doors lead from the living room onto the terrace where you will find patio furniture, a BBQ, sun loungers and parasol.

A six person hot tub is available to use next to your terrace – lovely after a day of skiing or just for relaxing under the stars.

The kitchen has a five ring gas hob, full size electric oven, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, microwave, toaster and washing machine. In the lounge there is a TV and DVD player with an additional DVD player in the family bedroom. You will also find a selection of DVDs, books, games, local maps and information. The gite has free wifi and we can provide a buggy and high chair if required.

The Campan Valley is an area of outstanding beauty and a paradise for walkers and cyclists. There are many lovely walks straight from the gite or a short car ride will away will take you to many more. Each change in season brings a different beauty to the valley and in winter you can hire raquettes (snow shoes) to enjoy the wonderful winter trails in the area.

For the keen cyclist we have the famous Tour de France routes right on our doorstep including the cols of Tourmalet and Aspin. In fact the Tour passes our drive most years – a spectacle well worth seeing. For those wishing to cycle some of the superb mountain routes we have a dry barn to store your cycles.

We are a ten minute drive from La Mongie which is part of the largest ski resort in the French Pyrenees with over 100km of skiing and the cable car to the magnificent Pic du Midi Observatory. This area encompasses the lovely tree lined resort of Bareges. There is free and ample parking at La Mongie as well as a regular bus service up and down from the resort. The bus stop is located about 500m from our drive. There are plenty of restaurants and bars and if you want a break from skiing why not try a husky ride or take a scenic trip by horse drawn sledge. Ski hire and ski schools can be found at both resorts and we are happy to help with booking these for you.

The stunning resort of Payolle is only a ten minute drive away from the gite. Here you will find 50km of cross country skiing passing through forests and around it’s beautiful lake. This is a wonderful area for raquettes (snow show walking) with well marked trails. There is also a small ski slope, ideal for beginners or small children.

There are plenty of activities to keep you busy, including paragliding, horse riding, rock climbing, fishing, VTT, canyoning, white water rafting and much more.

We are 2km from the village of Sainte Marie de Campan with its small but well stocked supermarket, café, pizzeria, boulangerie, bar and restaurant . A 15 minute car ride will take you to the lovely town of Bagneres de Bigorre which has lost of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. The traditional Saturday market is excellent and. Why not pamper yourself at the Aquensis spa or spend an evening at the Casino.

If you’re looking for an active holiday or just want to relax and unwind the Campan Valley is the perfect location.

We are Tim and Jane and we realised a 10 year dream when we moved to Sainte Marie de Campan in December 2013. In 2012, after 30 years with the Metropolitan Police Tim retired and we started our house hunt in France. We had holidayed all over France and enjoyed all the different regions but the Hautes Pyrenees has always been our favourite area. We wanted to find a traditional Pyrenean stone house in a tranquil setting, near the ski resorts and surrounded by beautiful walks and were so lucky to find a home that ticked all the boxes. Our sons are currently at university in the UK and we're looking forward to their visits in the holidays. Now that we've settled in we're busy discovering the wonderful surrounding walks with our two Border Terriers Eddy and Charlie.

Tim & Jane Yates purchased this farmhouse in 2013

We have been coming to the Pyrenees for holidays for many years and wanted to find a house full of character. We've certainly got that, with lovely gardens and stunning views. We have a lovely tranquil setting here but we're not too far away from 'civilisation' with the village of Sainte Marie de Campan only 2km down the road and the lovely town of Bagneres de Bigorre 15 mins away with its lovely shops, spa, casino and superb Saturday market. We are surrounded by beautiful walks and activities so there's always plenty to do both winter and summer. We were lucky enough to find a house with a swimming pool and hot tub which we hope our guests will enjoy.

You can do as much or as little as you like in the Campan Valley - just sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery and wildlife (you may be lucky enough to see deer in the garden, they come down and nibble on our pine trees). We love walking and the area is packed with walks for all levels. We have walks we can access straight from the house or a short car ride will take you to many more. Jane loves horse riding and there's plenty of that here. Tim is a rugby fan which was another of the reasons for choosing this area. Tim is planning to cycle the Col du Tourmalet in 2014 so training is underway. Jane is planning something a little less arduous. We are a ten minute drive from the famous Pic du Midi where you can take a cable car to the famous observatory and enjoy the spectacular views across the Pyrenees. There are plenty of activities in the surrounding area to keep you busy including cannoning, white water rafting, climbing, parcours adventure, birds of prey displays, relaxing spas, husky rides, skiing, cross country skiing, snow shoe walking and many more. Visit our website www.gite-du-midi-pryenees.com where you will find links to many of the activities.

The area is steeped in history, with quaint villages, castles and churches to visit. We are not far from the religious sites of Lourdes and Saint Bertrand de Comminges. Campan is famous for its mounaques, life size puppets which are displayed throughout the village during the summer.

Cosy gite in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to the Haut Pyrenees and we wanted somewhere as a base for exploring the area. The location is excellent with the gite offering very comfortable and cosy accommodation. After a days walking the terrace hot tub is a godsend! Charming hosts, well equipped and an excellent welcome pack this place has it all. Will come again.

relaxing break

Good location, nice property and facilities. Tour-de-France passes right by the gate. Not being skiers ourselves but 15-20 minute car ride away to ski slopes. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definately recommend it to friends.

Absolutely Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a really fantastic holiday here in the idyllic setting of the Pyrinean mountains. The Gite was very well equipped, spacious, clean and very comfortable. The owners were very welcoming and hospitable, they couldnt do enough to ensure that we were happy with everything. We enjoyed all the facilities like the pool and the hot tub and we made full use of the bar b cue out on the terrace in the evenings. The area was both beautiful and secluded but very near to all amenities, shops, restaurants, and attractions. We will definately return and reccommend it to others.
Thank you for a wonderful experience Mr & Mrs Geoff Bignell

Nice and quiet

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children, ages 5, 7 and 8).
We stayed here for a week at the end of July.

The house was clean and well equiped. We had everything we needed. The owners who live nextdoor are very kind and helpful.

The bedroom is very large. The bathroom and kitchen are good. The living room is a bit smaller, but we spent more time on the large terrace while the kids played in the garden and the swimming pool.

The town (Sainte Marie de Campan) is very quiet, but is a good starting point for excursions like walking and cycling. The house is located at the bottom of the famous col du Tourmalet.

The kids also liked the adventure parc of "Lou Farfadet" at Payolle, only a few kilometers away.
