Upstairs you will find a mezzanine area with 2 single beds (90 x 190cm) and a reading corner for children (books in French and English provided). The double bedroom has a king size bed (180cm * 200cm) . Beds have continental quilts and blankets, and two pillows per bed. Sheets are provided at an extra cost.

In front of the house you'll find a wooden patio area with chairs and table, a barbecue, and loungers. The house is opposite the pool with loungers and parasols. The large garden is surrounded by high hedges.

Nous avons vraiment apprécié nos vacances dans les Pyrénées grâce à cette location tout confort et arrangée avec goût .Les propriétaires sont très accueillant et discrets et nous les remercions d'avoir un terrain et une piscine si agréable et disponible tout au long de la journée, idéal pour une famille et un prix très raisonnable. Nous souhaitions réserver de nouveau cette année malheureusement tous le mois d'aout a été pris d'assaut des la fin de l 'année. Vivement l'été prochain ...

We have stayed for two weeks. The gite is an independent building. Upstairs are the bedrooms. Downstairs are the bathroom (sink/shower/toilet/washing machine), the large dining/living area, the library (with books and guides of the region) and the fully functional kitchen (electric knobs, oven, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave). The TV had many channels. The WiFi broad-band connection worked. Additionally, we used the free telephone for USA and France. Parking was available on the street. The swimming pool was excellent. Everything was as described on the internet site. The owners made significant efforts to accommodate us. We intend to come back.

Nous avons séjourné pendant deux semaines. Le gîte est un bâtiment indépendant. À l’étage sont les chambres à coucher. En bas sont la salle de bain (lavabo/douche/WC/machine à laver), la grand salle à manger/salon, la bibliothèque (avec livres et guides de la région) et la cuisine entièrement fonctionnelle (boutons électriques, four, réfrigérateur/congélateur, lave-vaisselle, micro-ondes). La télévision avait beaucoup de chaînes. La connexion WiFi très haut débit a foctionné. En outre, nous avons utilisé le téléphone gratuit pour les USA et la France. Un parking est disponible dans la rue. La piscine était excellente. Tout était tel que décrit sur le site internet. Les propriétaires ont fait des efforts considérables pour nous accueillir. Nous avons l’intention d’y revenir.

D'un point de vue général, le logement est sympa, par contre, pas adapté pour un couple avec des enfants car manque de sécurité au niveau de la piscine et portail qui ne ferme jamais. Le manque de confiance de la propriétaire m'a beaucoup peiné, il faut croire qu'elle avait eu des déboires avec de précédents locataires. Sinon bonne tranquillité et endroit accessible, bien situé.

Owner's Response: Bonjour, votre appréciation selon ma méfiance m'étonne, car nous n'avons jamais eu de soucis particuliers avec nos locataires et je ne suis pas sure de savoir à quoi vous faites référence. J'ai bien senti lorsque je vous ai demandé le chèque de caution que cela vous a étonné. Sachez que cela se fait pour tout le monde. Nous louons nous aussi des locations saisonnières et on nous demande toujours un chèque de caution. En ce qui concerne le portail, effectivement nous avions eu un souci de fermeture et un problème de garantie qu'on n'a pas pu régler de suite. Nous entamons de gros travaux dans la propriété cette année qui régleront définitivement le ce problème d'accès et de fermeture. En ce qui concerne la piscine, nous sommes en règle avec une couverture sécurisée que nous laissons fermée lorsqu'il y a des enfants en bas age, et que nous ouvrons qu'à la demande des locataires, ou lorsqu'ils sont absents.
