About Jan Nash
We are Jan and Steve and after many relaxing holidays here in the south west of France we decided to sell up in the UK and live our dream here in the magnificent Hautes Pyrenees. After renting for a year we finally found our dream forever home with amazing views of the Pyrenees which has always been a draw to us. We wanted to share our love of this area with like minded people and decided to convert a former dairy into a totally independent, light, airy and extremely comfortable one bedroomed holiday home just for two. A comfortable mix of modern and traditional French antiques the gite is the perfect place to relax and unwind. We love our life here and would like to help you enjoy it also.

Amazing property in an equally amazing location
WOW ! Perfect in every way. Hosts could not have been more friendly and helpful, whilst respecting our privacy at the same time. Fabulously well equipped Gite with everything that could possibly be needed for an enjoyable stay. The welcome pack had so much more than the ‘standard’ version you would expect. The peace and tranquillity was exactly what we had hoped it would be. The description of the Gite proved to be accurate in every single way, and more besides. So thoughtfully furnished and equipped, with both the inside and outside providing everything we needed for a relaxing and enjoyable two week stay. The Pool saved us from completely melting in the High 30’s temperatures that we were fortunate enough to have during our stay. Breakfast on the decking whilst gazing across to the Pyrenees is not something you get to experience every day, but at least we got to do it 12 times ! If you are looking for a blissful retreat, in a stunning location, with a property fitting the advertised description perfectly.....look no further. So much more that we could say.....but just go and see for yourself, you won’t be disappointed.
Thank you so much for taking the time to post this amazing review, it is so very much appreciated. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time here and were able to completely relax and unwind and enjoy our little piece of paradise in the South West of France, and bravo to you for cycling the mountains in the high temperatures. It was a pleasure having you stay here. A bientot Jan and Steve
Very thoughtfully and thoroughly stocked -home from home with absolutely stunning views.
The gite has been very tastefully and thoughtfully created with a very well stocked kitchen and a wonderful welcome pack.
Jan and Steve are always friendly; attentive and supportive hosts who go above and beyond to ensure you have the best possible holiday but are never intrusive. They gave us handwritten details of vide greniers we could visit. Thank you both.
Above and beyond all expectations
Immaculately presented and very well equipped, with exceptional hosts. One of the best and most extensive welcome packs we have ever encountered. Very rural location for quiet lazy days but within comfortable travelling distance to sightseeing destinations such as Carcasonne, Lourdes or a hop over the Pic du Midi, Pyrenees and a day out in Spain. Local services and markets are a short drive away in Lannemezan. Mountain bikes available to explore the myriad of small lanes weaving through the rolling countryside. Great for wildlife watching.
Thank you so much for taking the time to post this lovely review, it is very much appreciated. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time here and were able to explore the many delights that the area has to offer. We also thoroughly enjoyed our many chats over a glass or two. A bientot Jan and Steve
The 1st impression is as you drive up the 100m drive lined with fruit trees. Then through the gates to be greeted by a very welcoming Steve & Jan.
Yes, it was the 'wow factor!' and it continued as they showed us around the gite. Every smallest detail had been thought about - including not only an extensive welcome pack but also forewarning us that our 1st day was a bank holiday & then getting us some shopping in (thoroughly outstanding)
Jan & Steve are exceptional hosts (& now good friends of ours). They kept themselves to themselves but we're always available whenever we wanted to ask questions etc. We spent three exceptional evenings chatting the night away with them.
In summary: an exceptional gite, with outstanding hosts in the most perfect of settings.
Please don't go there as we'd like to keep it a secret so we can keep going back!
Thank you so much for taking the time to post this lovely review, it is very much appreciated. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time here and we certainly enjoyed our many chats late into the night. A bientot Jan and Steve
Absolutely wonderful!!! A perfect getaway for two.
We were lucky enough to come across Gite Trejeau and book it for the final week in July 2016. We are so happy we did - it was an amazing place to stay.
The gite itself was finished to an impeccable standard. The feeling of luxury ran throughout and everything that you could possibly want was provided, even robes and slippers. It gave the impression of staying in a boutique hotel rather than a holiday rental. All possible kitchen equipment and utensils were provided...the gardens were kept beautifully...the swimming pool overlooked the mountains...and some gorgeous local produce (cheese, meat, wine, croissants, pan au chocolat & more...) was put in to the gite for us for our arrival, which was an unexpected but very welcome surprise after our 12 hour drive down.
Jan & Steve were fantastic hosts and we can't thank you both enough for the work you put in to making the gite as beautiful as it is and for making us feel very welcome in your little piece of paradise in southern France. You really do go above and beyond for your guests.
Top tips: If you can tear yourself away from the gite for a day, take the cable car from La Mongie to the Pic Du Midi - a fabulous day out to really see the full beauty of the Pyrenees.
We absolutely loved Gite Trejeau and would highly recommend a stay for those who enjoy the peace and quiet, beautiful landscape and scenery and luxury accommodation.

Oase van rust, prachtig verblijf, super uitzicht, mooi huisje , alles wat je nodig hebt aanwezig, heerlijk zwembad , prettige gastvrije eigenaren, mooi gebied dus top verblijf. Wij hebben vanuit dit verblijf prachtige motortochten door de Pyreneeën gemaakt.
Heel erg bedankt dat je de tijd hebt genomen om deze mooie recensie te plaatsen, het wordt zeer op prijs gesteld. We zijn zo blij dat je genoten hebt van je tijd hier en in staat was om de vele geneugten die de omgeving te bieden heeft te verkennen. Een bientot Jan en Steve
Bazordan is a quiet little village about 10 minutes drive from Castelnau-Magnoac, Boulogne sur Gesse and Lannemezan where you will find weekly markets, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and shops.
For the bird watchers we have such a wide variety to watch from the house: Red Kites, Honey Buzzards, Black Kites, Hobbys, Hoopoo's, Black Woodpeckers to name a few. Also Lac Puydarrieux is about a 15 minute drive away and is renown for bird watching especially in the Autumn when the birds including Cranes, migrate and winter here.
For the history lovers a few of the attractions near us are: St Bertrand de Comminges with its Roman ruins and historic cathedral and village; Montmaurin the remains of a Gallo-Roman village and one of the largest known villas in France; Château de Mauvezin built by Gaston Fébus around 1380; Gouffre d’Esparros discovered in 1938 and described as a 'vast cavern of indescriable magnificence'. And just 5 minutes away we have the beautiful Notre Dame de Garaison at Monleon-Magnoac - a major pilgrimage site in the 16th century up until the French Revolution. This site pre-dates the more famous Lourdes but is less commercialised and but just as important.
The Gorges de la Save, which is about 15 minutes away, a perfect place for a picnic and a gentle walk which stays cool even in hot weather, with the ruins of Chateau de Lespugue nearby.
The spectacular Hautes Pyrenees is situated in the south west of France, half way between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic coasts and has Spain (only 1 hour away from the gite) as its neighbour. The area is dominated by the magnificent Pyrenees where during the summer or winter there is always plenty to do whether that’s cycling, walking, climbing, skiing, canoeing or rafting!
With World Hertitage sites including Lourdes, Pic du Midi, Cauterets and Pont d'Espagne to visit , spas centres to enjoy, the area is a perfect opportunity to relax as well as explore the stunning scenery.
The Tour de France visits this area every year and regularly goes up the Col du Tourmalet the highest paved mountain pass in the Pyrenees.
