We live in the Welsh borders, but have been walking in The Pyrenees on vacations for the last 25-or-so years, enjoying the wonderful unspoilt scenery....so 11 years ago we decided to buy a holiday home in the French pyrenees...& we have spent many, many wonderful days in the Vallee de Lesponne ever since...& we let our house to holiday-makers who also love this region of France.

Martin or Lorraine Wibberley purchased this cottage in 2003

This is a charming renovated barn or 'grange' in a very beautiful valley in the central Pyrenees...the scenery is stunning & the opportunities for walking, cycling, skiing, bird-watching, studying the wild-flowers must be amongst the best in Europe!

If you like the natural scenery of what is often described as 'the last wilderness in western Europe' as much as we do, then you are sure to love this valley.

We found in this house a beautifully renovated old barn with all the comforts & mod cons...it stands on the valley floor, close to the villages of Lesponne & Beaudean, with restaurants, bars & shops nearby, & with the calm of an ubspoilt valley all around...definitely the place to chill out & relax, leaving the hustle-bustle of the modern world behind for a while.

We had a great stay and very much enjoyed the atmosphere, facilities and location of this cottage. The listing was 100% accurate and the property was very clean and well maintained. We received all the information needed about the property and also valuable information concerning the attractions and walks around. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and peaceful vacation, with all the comfort of a real home.

Notes:
While the interior, furnishing & fixtures have all been completed to a very high standard, giving you all mod cons and a luxurious accommodation experience, we have been at pains to preserve the vernacular architecture of the house and the natural style of the garden in order that the property respects the traditional look of the valley and is sympathetic to the rural charm of the location & the surrounding wildlife. This is a great location for a chill-out holiday...lying amongst the wild flowers in one of the surrounding meadows with a glass of red wine & some local cheese, while listening to the sound of the nearby cowbells & watching the Kites & Eagles soaring above is a sensory thrill not to be missed! Because Pyreneean winters can be snowy, if you are coming in the winter you might need to consider the use of snow chains, winter tyres or a 4X4 if you want to get up to the ski slopes at La Mongie or explore small lanes & high-level roads.
