About Graeme Fletcher

We both live in Scotland, work in the UK and try to get over to France as much as we can.

Graeme Fletcher purchased this farmhouse in 2013

Why Graeme Fletcher chose Gers

We fell in love with the property as soon as we saw it. We love the property itself, the big gardens, the pool, which we have now heated, and the amazing views over the mountains. It really is a getaway from all the hustle and bustle of our busy city life's.

What makes this farmhouse unique

What is special about A Puntos.....I would say everything but then, I suppose, I am biased. If I had to pick one thing, it would be sitting on the terrace, with a warm breeze in my face looking at the mountains and enjoying the peace and tranquility. Obviously, with a glass of wine!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was one of our most favourite holidays! The place is amazing- beautiful big house, lovely pool and pizza oven. It really has everything. We were hosted superbly throughout and Graeme even helped us with the pizza oven. We can't recommend this place enough! Hopefully we will be back soon

The most beautiful property. A heated pool too!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful property with an amazing heated pool. Perfect for midnight star gazing. The property has every facility you would need for hot or cold weather. The stunning scenery and area make it impossible not to relax! The property is maintained to a high quality and the owners were a pleasure to deal with in every way. We loved it so much we are booked for next year - can't wait!

Fantastic property in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant two weeks here in September. The farmhouse is in such a beautiful and tranquil location and the view of the Pyrenees is just the icing on the cake. Although the weather was very changeable, the heated swimming pool meant that we could still go swimming nearly every day. Our toddler loved exploring the garden and going for walks around the village. The farmhouse is very well equipped and it really did feel like a home from home. Graeme was really helpful and accommodating (before, during and after our stay) and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend A Puntos to friends. We'd love to return one day too - we found it very hard to tear ourselves away at the end of our stay!

tout est top !

  • 5 of 5

l'annonce est 100% conforme à la réalité ; l'endroit est magnifique, au calme sur une colline avec une vue sur les Pyrénées et le pic du Midi

la maison est parfaitement équipée (internet, écran plat,...)

la piscine chauffée est un régal (eau jamais en dessous de 27°)

mais le vrai plus est la qualité du service : Graeme le propriétaire est très à l'écoute, toujours aux petits soins, et connait les bonnes adresses pour le vin et le foie gras

A recommander !!!

The most amazing family holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

We are not long home from the most amazing week in this beautiful farmhouse. We are a family of 6 and this was our first holiday abroad, and were quite nervous. However, Graeme couldn't have been more helpful. He would always quickly reply to my many email enquiries! And, on arrival Graeme and his wife Kirsty were there to welcome us and help settle us in quickly.

Our children couldn't wait to jump in the beautiful heated pool and most of our first day and evening was spent there. The local supermarket is a short drive away, and has everything you could possibly need. The house is wonderfully equipped, a real home from home, and we ate every meal on the beautiful terrace. Graeme even helped us set up the pizza oven one night and our children enjoyed preparing and cooking pizzas. Thanks Graeme! I'd love to say more about the surrounding area and facilities, however we only left the house to buy food! We enjoyed relaxing at the pool and our children had a fantastic time splashing and playing with their inflatable toys! The pool itself is beautifully maintained and has a number of loungers and parasols. The extensive gardens looked magnificent when we were there, and the lawns were great for the children to play on.

Thank you for a fantastic family holiday. We really cannot speak more highly of this place and would thoroughly recommend to anyone. We certainly cannot wait to return!

Warmest regards, Damien and Lorna Kilgallon

Fantastic property for a peaceful relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Four adults (two couples) stayed at this beautiful farmhouse for two weeks and we all loved it. It is well-maintained and the owner was very helpful indeed. The outside terrace is ideal for most meals in the summer, and is sheltered enough to allow you to stay outside until late in the evening. The kitchen is well-appointed, as is the lounge, with UK TV channels - essential for Wimbledon! The beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms clean and functional. The downstairs shower is amazing.

The pool is also well maintained, and is great to relax in. It is set in a large plot which is very well looked after.

We would thoroughly recommend this property.

Even better than we remembered- definitely be back

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd visit to A Puntos and we love coming back here. Our hosts were extremely helpful throughout the booking process and treated us like old friends. They were so welcoming during our stay - we felt comfortable asking their advice on where to go, how to entertain our wee boy and even enjoyed a glass of wine with us.

We particularly enjoyed the heated pool and of course the pizza oven. The weather wasn't sunny all the time but this didn't stop us from using the pool at every opportunity - especially as it is now heated.

We enjoyed making our own pizzas in the pizza oven an

d my husband even tried his hand at a bit of dough making.

The house itself is really comfortable and beautifully decorated. We were also lucky enough to have a couple of amazing thunder and lightening storms. Definitely be back - one of our favourite places.
