We enjoyed our stay in this lovely french home. It had every thing we could have hoped for in abundance. Very nicely decorated and very roomy for 10 of us.

What a wonderful holiday gite

  • 5 of 5

This property is really great value. We spent a lovely week enjoying the area. There's plenty to do for all ages. We went canooing, visited the Pic de Midi and Carcassonne and the rest of the time we just enjoyed lazing in the lovely garden. It was great for the kids who really enjoyed the pool.

The house is massive and tastefully furnished. Not at all basic, with every convenience.

A lovely week in the Midi Pyrenees

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent a wonderful week relaxing in the pretty village of Castelnau-Magnoac and exploring the surrounding countryside both on foot and on the bicycles thoughtfully provided by the owners. The farmhouse provided spacious traditional accommodation and was very comfortable offering every amenity. Conveniently located between the airports at Pau and Toulouse, the journey from Pau took us less than an hour. The property was conveniently situated for short excursions into the Pyrenees, Tarbes and Lourdes. We also travelled slightly further afield, visiting the enchanting fortified city of Carcasonne in the region of Languedoc-Roussillon.Local produce was in abundance at the Saturday market in the village square and the local supermarket catered for all our other provisions. We would certainly recommend L’Iceni Court.
