Amazing house and pool for a relaxing holiday
What a brilliant property for a large family group. We were 7 children under 9yrs and 6 adults and everyone had a great time. The pool made the holiday with everyone from 1yrs - 70+yrs.
The garden and surrounding area where also ideal with using the bikes available to explore the gorge.
The local large swimming lake and inflatable obstacle course was another favourite. Even drove for under an hour for white water rafting. One keen person even cycled over Tourmalet (on own bike).
The bedroom layout and kitchen / sitting room have all you need for a relaxing stay with the kids enjoying movie nights with the DVDs available.
A wonderful place to enjoy a family holiday
This property has everything a family would want for a memorable holiday. My family went there to celebrate my 70th birthday. That's 14 of us including the grandchildren. The property is big enough if you want a quiet moment and areas where the family can get together to celebrate. The village is quiet and is set in magnificent country. A walk along the local gorge and through the woods plus day trips to The Pyrenees are recommended as is a visit to the market at Bolougne sur Gesse. It was simply a memorable place to stay for a memorable holiday
A great family holiday
We were a big family group of 13 and the accommodation suited us well. The older children enjoyed staying in the barn. The swimming pool was great. The area is rural and we enjoyed a visit to the nearby castle and the Roman villa. The local gorge unfortunately cannot be accessed at the moment. We had a visit to the Pyrenees one day which is just over an hour away and also visited the caves at Garges. The nearest supermarkets were in Boulogne-sur-Gesse and the shop in Blajan only does bread orders. We ate a wonderful meal at the nearby Au Bois D’Escoumos. We would highly recommend the house for a family holiday.
Great week in Lespugue
19 of us (adults, children and babies) spent a lovely week here on a family holiday. Plenty of space. Swimming pool excellent especially in the very hot weather we experienced.
Need your own car as supermarket and boulangerie definitely a drive away (boulangerie in Blajan is now closed so need to go to Boulogne sur Gesse)
We experienced a lot of flies, especially in the kitchen and lounge area. Fly sticks seemed to prevent them in the bedrooms and definitely minimised in the open areas.
Outdoor BBQ fantastic, shaded seating for meals brilliant, covered barn area huge and great space to play in during hottest part of day, or to avoid rain.
Really had everything needed, from seating to sunloungers, kitchen equipment to bathroom towels.
Ben quick to respond and really helpful.
Perfect for a cycling holiday
A group of us stayed here as a base for cycling in the Pyrenees. Really good access to some of the classic Tour de France cols and amazing traffic free cycling all around the house
Really well managed and set up for large groups
Five Stars are not enough!
This is not my first stay here, and will go back for as long as I can, it is perfect. However, I took my partner for the first time and he was blown away by the property itself, the facilities and the beauty that surrounds it. The rooms were all made up and extremely clean, the living area has a range of books, games and DVD's should you be unlucky enough to have rain. There is sufficient seating space inside for a large family if needed; we needed this as there was 9 of us! The barn is a great breakout area with darts and ping pong, along with a comfortable reading space.
The pool area is a real bonus, with cover if needed on those hot days when you need a lovely dip. Really relaxing to sit around the pool away from the hustle and bustle and noise of daily life. The house is close enough to everything you need, a perfect get away spot.
Thanks to Alan and Ben for an amazing stay and look forward to being back next year.
The house is in the village of Lespugue, a small village near Bolougne Sur Gesse, about 80km from Toulouse airport. It is a farming village and very rural. This is a real community where you will be made to feel very welcome, especially if you have children. There are around 20 houses in the village. There is almost no traffic through the village. Driving around the whole region is a pleasure. There are endless possibilities for traffic free and varied cycling directly from the village.
There is a small church, a little museum dedicated to the statue of venus found in the village and now in the Louvre. The museum serves drinks outside in the summer on a typically ah hoc basis. The scenery around the village is simply stunning, rolling farmland giving way to views of the Pyrenees.
There are ruins of the old chateau on the edge of the village and one of Europe's best preserved Roman Villa's a few kilometres away.
The nearest shops are in Blajan about 4km away where you will find a lovely bakers and a cafe/post office/shop.
About 9km away is Bolougne Sur Gesse which has a range of supermarkets, a fabulously local Wednesday market and a couple of swimming lakes.
The Pyrenees are around 45 minutes away and offer unlimited possibilities for hiking, cycling and outdoor sports and adventure sports.
