Located at the end of our 200 year old renovated farmhouse it offers accommodation for 2-4 people (2 adults and 2 children. In addition a cot can be provided for a third child).

The area offers a wealth of summer and winter mountain activities - downhill and cross country skiing, cycling the famous Tour de France cols including Tourmalet and Aspin, spectacular walks, VTT, horse riding, fishing, paragliding, golfing, rock climbing and much more.

About Jane Yates
We (Tim and Jane) realised a 10 year dream when we moved to Sainte Marie de Campan in December 2013. After 30 years with the Metropolitan Police Tim retired in 2012 and we started our house hunt in France. We had holidayed all over France and enjoyed all the different regions but the Hautes Pyrenees has always been our favourite area. We wanted a to find a house with lots of character, in a tranquil setting, near the ski resorts and surrounded by beautiful walks and were so lucky to find a home that ticked all the boxes. Our sons are currently at university in the UK and we're looking forward to their visits in the holidays. Now that we've settled in we're busy discovering the wonderful surrounding walks with our two Border Terriers Eddy and Charlie.
Jane Yates purchased this Cottage in 2013

I would definitely recommend this gite
Thank you very much for your lovely review. We really enjoyed your company and are so glad you enjoyed your holiday here. Hopefully see you again soon.
What a view!
The warmest of welcomes awaits from Jane and Tim when you arrive at their charming and comfortable little gite, surrounded by the most wonderful views of the Pyrenees. On the road to the Col du Tourmalet, of Tour de France fame, the gite is ideally situated for walkers, cyclists and sightseers of every age group, and Jane and Tim will go out of their way to ensure that you have everything you need to make your stay enjoyable.
A Pyranneen Delight
My wife and I spent a fortnight in the Gite de Midi and have no hesitation in recommending it to others. Tim and Jane Yates made us very welcome and throughout our stay were most helpful without being intrusive. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Situated a kilometre or thereabouts up the road to the Col de Tourmalet from the village of Ste Marie de Campan (boulangerie, general store and 2 modestly priced restaurants) with the market town of Bagnere de Bigorre with its supermarches and a wide variety of shops only some 20 minutes away by car it was an excellent base for exploring the higher lands of the Pyrannees in that area: plenty of varied walks through high pasture land or serious cyling on the routes of the Tour de France Alernatively for the less active, picnic by Le Lac de Payolle en route to Col d'Aspin and the attractive village of Arreau. At the same time it was an easy drive to Lourdes, Lannemezan and the contrasting villages, hills and valleys of Les Baroonnies
Très bonne escapade à Campan
Nous sommes venus pour aller skier à la Mongie et le gîte est à 15min en voiture des pistes. Très facile d'accès !
Jane et son mari sont très sympathique et nous avons pu utiliser le jacuzzi. C'est vraiment super :)
Nous recommandons !
Très bon séjour
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour chez Tim et Jane, qui se sont montrés accueillants et disponibles.
Le gîte est très bien situé, à mi chemin entre La Mongie et Bagnère de Bigorre.
Nous le conseillons !

You will find many more cafes, restaurants and shops in the beautiful spa town of Bagneres de Bigorre which is only 15 minutes drive from the gite. Why not visit its excellent traditional market which is held every Saturday morning, relax and pamper yourself in the Aquensis spa or try your luck in the casino.
The Tour de France passes our drive most years and is definitely something not to missed. For the keen cyclists the famous cols of Tourmalet and Aspin are right on our doorstep.
Take a scenic drive over the cols and explore the neighbouring valleys where you will find the 'Grands Sites Pyrenees' including the famous Cirque Gavarnie and the beautiful Pont D'Espagne. The religious sites of Lourdes and Saint Bertrand de Comminges are just a short drive away.
