Overview

Bernadets-Debat House Rental Photos and Description

Luxury accommodation in secluded village location. All bedrooms en-suite.

The Gite has been created from the barns of an 1850s Maison de Maitre. It has been renovated to the highest standard, with modern fittings but preserving original features.

The three bedrooms (2 double, one twin) accommodate 6 as standard (8 if the optional futons are used). They are all spacious and all have en-suite bath/shower rooms.

The living accommodation comprises a large open-plan space with sitting area, dining area and modern kitchen. There is a separate laundry room. A covered terrace provides a shady dining space.

Out of season, double-glazing, a wood-burning stove (logs provided) and electric heating in all rooms ensure year-round warmth.

The property is set in large grounds (over 2 hectares, 5 acres) featuring a heated swimming pool (open from May to September) with plenty of sun-bathing space, and a full-size all-weather tennis court. Other facilities include a BBQ, table tennis, basketball hoop, satellite TV (English and French channels), DVD player, games console, and WiFi.

The property is in a quiet and secluded location and provides complete privacy. The owners' property is adjacent but would not normally be occupied during lets of 7 nights or more (for lets of 2-6 nights the owners may be in residence but guests privacy will be respected and they will have exclusive use of all facilities).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Deep comfort combined with such an extraordinary level of rural peace meant we were rested and energised in equal doses. The owner has organised excellent care from an English speaking representative and nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommended'. M Steel, Bath, UK.

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this superb gite and were sad to leave! The gite is beautiful and excellently equipped- we had everything we needed and more. The pool, tennis court and grounds are absolutely stunning and we enjoyed the majority of our stay simply relaxing in such wonderful surroundings . We had all our meals outside and we really enjoyed the upper terrace for dinner in the evening sun. It is without doubt the loveliest gite that we have stayed in. We would love to return!

Super Family Gite

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We nearly didn't write a review, we wanted to keep this place to ourselves. If anything, the description of the property and the pictures do not do it justice. The gite was extremely clean and well furnished, loads of space, even for a family of 6. Amazing service by the owners - they were extremely quick to respond to any concerns even though they were not in residence during our stay. The tennis courts and table tennis table ensured that energetic boys were kept busy. The heated pool enabled a number of late night swims accompanied by a glass of local Rosé, made a perfect end to the day...

Great local, new supermarket and plenty of places to eat made this the perfect place to spend a week 'getting away from it all'

Just over an hour and you're in Spain..

Will return

A luxury home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful gite a week in June 2014. The gite was ideally located with a supermarket about 5 minutes away and within easy driving distance from the major cities of Albi (120 min), Toulouse (90min) and Lourdes (60min). The property description was more than accurate and looked even better in person that in the pictures posted.

The relatively newly renovated (4-year old) farmhouse and beautiful grounds including an orchard, gardens, tennis court and heated pool were immaculately maintained. The open concept living room, dining room and full-equipped kitchen as well as laundry facilities were ideally suited to our needs. All the equipment was in perfect working order. The outdoor dining area and heated pool were perfect for family fun and relaxation under the warm sunny June skies. The second floor of the gite contained the three spacious bedrooms (as described), each with its own adjoining full bathroom. The satellite TV was a bonus for us to watch the World Cup.

The owners were very prompt with their responses to our email inquiries and were able to provide a baby cot and highchair for our infant son. The proud and hands-on owners were extremely professional in their customer service and afforded our family complete privacy during our stay. They also provided information about the attractions and events in the local area. The owners also provided a quick refund of our deposit following our departure.

I would highly recommend this property to my friends and relatives looking for a comfortable and stress-free vacation in the Haute Pryrenees and Haute Garrone. We were attending a wedding in the area and this property was a fortunate discovery for us. Our stay at his property was a truly pleasurable experience.

Luxury in an idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

Away from the hustle and bustle of life, we could truly unwind during our holiday in this luxurious gite in August. The owners have only recently created the gite from an old barn attached to their house, the former Maison de Maitre. They have been careful to preserve some of the original features, such as the old beams, which add charm and history to their fine, spacious and comfortable accommodation. Each room, whether it be the living area, a bedroom or an en-suite bathroom has been designed with the greatest attention to detail, elegant and stylish. Wi-fi was an additional plus.

Tempting as it was to spend our entire holiday swimming in the pool or playing tennis in such a tranquil environment, the natural beauty of the surrounding area and the proximity of Lourdes and other interesting towns and villages such as Castelnau-Magnoac with its little antiquarian bookshop (French), Resistance Museum and café, enticed us away for very pleasurable trips.

We just did not want to leave!

Located in the Midi-Pyrenees, on the border of Gers and Hautes-Pyrenees, this area of France features bastide villages set among rolling countryside, fields of sunflowers and woodlands.

The property is located in a small hamlet, 5 minutes by car from the local market town of Trie sur Baise where there is a supermarket, a number of butchers, bakers and greengrocers, as well as a chemist, hairdressers, 3 cafes, one of the best pizza parlours in France (they have medals to prove it), a tourist office and banks.

The immediate area is quiet and rural. The property itself is set in large landscaped grounds, affording privacy for swimming in the private heated swimming pool (in season) and playing tennis on the private all-weather tennis court, as well as generally relaxing.

However, this is also an exciting year-round holiday location as it is only 55 minutes by car from the Pyrenees National Park, providing excellent skiing in the winter and rafting, climbing and mountain walking the rest of the year; while locally there is a golf club and lakes with sailing and canoeing.

In the summer each village takes it in turn to be 'en-fete', with the world-famous Marciac Jazz Festival and the Mirande Country Music Festival only 30 minutes away.
