Saint Lary Boujean:-

A beautiful hamlet located on a peaceful hilltop within the foothills of the Pyrénées.

As well as stunning views of the surrounding countryside and the mountains, it is just a 10-15 minute drive to Aurignac, Saint Gaudens or Boulogne-sur-Gesse with supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and local attractions.

Its proximity to the Pyrenees offers easy access to ski resorts which offer all year round walking, climbing, and water sports. There are also a number of thermal spas within an hour’s drive.

There is a fantastic boulongerie with the original mill within five minutes drive. The boulongerie’s van also visits the village twice a week if you are unable to make the short journey.

The local area is steeped in ancient history, with many Roman ruins easily accessible to the public. These are clearly signposted in the area.

Aurignac (10mins):-

The nearby picturesque mediaeval town of Aurignac provides excellent butchers, green grocers, a wine cave, bakers, restaurants, cafés, banks, a small cinema, a post office plus a doctor’s surgery and a pharmacy. There is also a lovely playground for children aged 2-10. There is a small market in the town on Tuesdays and Saturdays. During summer regular concerts and events take place, including an open air cinema, a night market, street theatre and world music. Classical concerts and further cultural events are also held in the Bishops Palace at Alan a further 5 minute drive from Aurignac.

Saint Gaudens (15mins):-

Lies right at the base of the Pyrenean Mountains, which gives it a truly spectacular setting. It is an ancient fortified town, whose mediaeval walls impart a sense of history to all who look on them. Built in the 11th century, and extended in the 14th century, the fortifications were modified when the internal walls were demolished in the 16th century.

Saint Gaudens has many lovely old cobbled streets and fascinating corners to explore. It also has a useful modern side to it, and as a sizeable town it can offer pretty much everything you may need. There are a number of shops and large supermarkets, doctors, dentists, schools and banks. There are plenty of good restaurants in which you can soak up the atmosphere of the town, enjoy a glass or two of wine and try the local gastronomic specialities. All tastes and pockets are catered for.

Boulogne Sur Gesse (10 mins):-

Pretty small town with several supermarkets that are open on Sunday morning. In addition there are a few cafes and restaurants, lovely lake with Municipal pool.

The Municipal Pool overlooks the lake and is composed of 3 heated pools:

- 25-meter pool with diving board,

- Children’s Pool

- Paddling pool with mushroom (for babies and younger children)

- Fantastic Water slide.

It is open from the beginning of July and costs €3 for Adults and €2 for children.

Opening time:

♦ From Monday to Saturday from 10:30 to 12:30 and from 14h to 19h

♦ Sunday from 10:30 to 19h.

Next to the pool there is a snack bar and fantastic restaurant overlooking the lake.

Lac De Gimone (10 km from Boulogne Sur Gesse)

Saint-Blancard on Lake Gimone (280 hectares) is a beautiful bathing lake with a sandy beech overlooking the Pyrenees. From May to September you can also hire pedalos and canoes. The lake also has a picnic area, landscaped area for children, swings and a zip wire.

Saint-Bertrand-de-Comminges (36 km):-

Is one of the 'most beautiful villages of France’ and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The village is in a lovely sleepy location, surrounded by the lush green valleys of the region and overlooked by the Pyrenean foothills. In addition there is a lovely golf course overlooking a lake - Golf Du Comminges.

Built on the site of a Roman city, it was once a large town called Lugdunum Convenarum, where Pompeii ruled over 10,000 inhabitants. Things have changed slightly and the village now has about 250 inhabitants!

Further afield:-

Carcassonne (1hr 30 mins) with its famous walled mediaeval castle town and Albi (1hr 30 mins) with its spectacular red brick Cathedral. In addition you are equidistant from the beaches of Biarritz on the Atlantic and Narbonne Plage on the Mediterranean Coastline (240km).

Airports:-

Toulouse Airport is about 90 km away or about 1 hours drive and is our closest airport. It is very well served with up to 12 flights a day (in peak season) from Gatwick (Easy Jet), Luton (Easy Jet)London Heathrow (British Airways) and Stansted (Ryanair). In addition there are flights from Birmingham (Flybe) Manchester (Fly be and Jet 2), Bristol (Easyjet) as well as many destinations throughout europe.

peaceful position, great accommodation lovely

  • 5 of 5

This house is so perfect for a large family! Every room is very comfortable, and the kitchen is a great place to congregate since we were all able to sit together.In good weather we were able to dine outside as a family, and there are plenty of loungers etc available.

The facilities were excellent and we were really comfortable.There is UK television available as well as internet, keeping teenagers happy!

Whilst the weather wasn’t particularly kind to us whist we were there the swimming pool was well used by the children and I was able to relax in the sunshine on a couple of days! Recommendations for dining were also well received and we much enjoyed the Auberge Champetre ( an au few du bois restaurant) even our grandson who is a vegetarian !

Our trips from the house were also made even better when we returned to the peaceful ambience and position. We went to the local towns and also Lourdes for the day, well worth a visit.

There is a large swimming pool in Aurignac, which we enjoyed as well. Great house, great position, although quiet and nearest nightlife bars etc were a few miles away so not for everyone but we loved it.

A fantastic french holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved everything about this house. The traditional french style made us feel we were really experiencing a slice of history. The house was very clean and great for families with a fantastic decent sized swimming pool, very spacious rooms and great outdoor space for family bbq's. We absolutely loved the games room too where we taught the kids how to play table tennis and pool. We decided to leave the darts though! I cannot recommend this house enough for families who want to experience real france and spend some time together. The area is also great with lovely countryside. We particularly enjoyed the lake which the kids loved and there is a big open air swimming pool with slides not too far away.

We would definately being going back, cant wait till the next time!

Beautiful holiday home in a peaceful, rural setting - perfect for two families

  • 4 of 5

The house has been beautifully restored and is located in a peaceful hamlet with distant views of the Pyrenees. It was perfect for 2 families sharing and the games room was a real hit with the teenagers. The heated pool was fantastic and we loved the various seating places around the garden.

We visited the local pool at the lake with the diving board, slide and great restaurant a few times. A trip to Le Pic du Midi is an absolute must - stunning views and a great day out.

If you arrive on a Sunday be prepared that all the shops are shut from lunchtime and it's a bit of a drive to get bread and patisseries if the local bakery is closed.

Overall we highly recommend this house for a relaxing holiday and Alistair was very helpful with any queries we had.

Traditional france at its best

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated in the centre of a small immaculately maintained hamlet. There are no shops and it is very quiet apart from the odd tractor and car! It has been beautifully and sympathetically restored and is perfect for two families with children. The pool is a lovely size and is maintained twice a week so we could simply put our feet up and enjoy the garden and the views towards the Pyrenees! It was also heated to a constant 27c which was perfect for the children. There is wifi throughout the house which is unlimited which is important if you want to watch Netflix's etc. Most of the main shops and supermarkets are no more than 10-15 minute drive along beautifully tree lined roads and again views of the Pyrenees. The owner was helpful before our visit and refunded our deposit without asking and within a few days of departure! All in all we had a great time and would highly recommend the house and the area.
