Our house is set in the picturesque Midi-Pyrenees countryside, which is the perfect setting for many outdoor activities, walking, cycling, and fishing. The market towns of Lembeye and Maubourguet are close by and the pilgrimage centre of Lourdes is half an hour away. The holiday and skiing centres of the Pyrenees, with all they have to offer, are an hour's drive. There are plenty of nearby Golf Courses and during the summer there are the festivals in all the major towns, Historic Cars in Pau, Country Music at Mirande, and Marciac hosts the world famous Jazz festival. The Tour de France always has a stage or two nearby and is a terrific sight with its cavalcade of sponsors vehicles as well as the riders themselves.
Gascony is one of France’s best-kept secrets. (In fact you will not find it as an area on maps). This rural area stretches from Toulouse in the east, south of the Garonne River to the foothills of the Pyrenees. This southerly position allows for a sunny warm climate without the bustle and crowds of the Mediterranean coast.
Our house is set in unspoilt countryside but, within an hour of Lourdes, the Pyrenees and Pau. Our local town, Lembeye, is 3 miles away. The annual festivals of Jazz and Country Music take place close by in Marciac and Mirande and there are plenty of nearby Golf Courses for all abilities.
The Pyrenees and surrounding Countryside are a walker's paradise and the local lakes and rivers provide plenty of fishing.
