Wonderful family villa - beautiful country

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this villa. Our two families consist of 6 kids and they couldn't have been happier with everything. The weather was nice and the kids enjoyed the heated pool, playground and my son's favorite was driving the "tractor" around the spacious lawn. The house had plenty of room and a well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed playing games in the barn and family meals in the evening at the outdoor seating area. We ventured out a few times to nearby towns but mostly just enjoyed family and the scenery at the villa. There is also ruins for an old fortress within walking distance that made for a nice walk. We would definitely return to this house.

Everything you needed from a great holiday

  • 5 out of 5
A beautiful and comfortable house set in an friendly village, it is the most relaxing break that anybodycould wish for. This is a big property that easily accommodated our party of five. he layout worked well for us, the kitchen/dinner was spacious enough for all the family to help with the cooking and eat inside, although the majority of nights were spent at a large table situatued outside as our focal point for gathering to eat and socialise. The house benefits from fabulous, uninterpreted views of the rural surroundings from the garden area and the pool is an excellent size to laze around if you are so inclined whilst the children play. The upstairs of the accompanying barn has comfortable sofa's to spend quiet nights reading or listening to music but also for games such as table tennis or playing cards to entertain all. Alot of thought and care has been put into the presentation of the house and the facilities that it offers families with children of all ages, aswell as couples that may want a spacious break with friends is excellent. I would definitely recommend it as a relaxing place to stay and plan a return trip. A car is essential as Boulogne-Sur-Gesse is about a 10 minute drive away where you will find the market, shops and supermarkets. The house is in a good location for either a quiet holiday or visiting the surrounding sights of the area, and the hous hosts maps and brochures of near attractions. The size of the house meant everybody could do their own thing, meeting up again for a lazy lunch or dinner in the evening. The house is comfortable and furnished to match the style of the property. All mod cons as is a good collection of consol games and English DVD's and books, washing machine and a lovely cooking range. The house is surrounded by its own gardens and grounds ensuring peace and privacy as well as fun. The owners are friendly and know the area extremely well, sharing their recommendations for trips, restaurants and activities for all ages. I will certainly be going back and recommending this property and area to my friends and family.

Farmhouse rental

  • 4 out of 5
Easy to get to from Toulouse airport. The location is lovely with great scenery all round. There is a septic tank which is common in france so care has to be taken as to what cleaning products should be used and care taken that nothing goes down the kitchen sink apart from water, the owner provided cleaning products so this was not a problem. The outside eating area was great for relaxing in the evening, the BBQ perfect for the weather we had which was great. The pool temperature was perfect, we enjoyed every minute of it!! The owner was very helpful and easily contacted when the children used up the internet allowance far too quickly, and sorted the problem out straight away. All in all we had a great holiday!

Perfect for a group of families

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fantastic time, the house is perfect for families. There were 12 of us in three families.

The house is full of character but everything works and is pretty new. There is a well equipped kitchen, with tons of cutlery etc for large numbers of people The oven is electric which is a big bonus and its a five ring stove. We barbequed a lot and there is a decent bbq.

All the bathrooms are modern with good shower, one has a small bath for kids. It was great not having to share bathrooms.

The bedrooms all have good storage and there are lots of towels. Our teenage sons loved the big room in the barn annex which gave them some private space, and opened had its own decking overlooking the pool.

The living room is nice, couple of sofas and british telly. Meant we didnt miss the olympics !

You will eat all your meals on the large covered terrace outside. It is great in the hot weather.

The barn is beautiful. Upstairs is a massive open space with massive sofas, table tennis, darts and bar football. Perfect to sit in until the small hours when the kids are in bed !! It was a godsend when the temperatures hit the mid 30's. The internet is up in the barn too. Downstairs is stuffed with bikes, scooters and toys.

Now for the best bit ! The pool is heated !!!!! Couldnt keep the kids away from it. Tons of loungers and umbrellas, someone comes once a week to clean it.

The house is in a tiny farming village, there is virtually no traffic. The nearest supermarket is 10 minutes away, the local town has a lake with a beach and a big public pool with a waterslide. There are tons of adventure activities locally for the kids and the pyrenees are stunning

Thanks for a great holiday

Vacances en famille

  • 5 out of 5
Notre famille de 15 personnes agés de 5 ans et 75 ans ( dont une personne à mobilité très réduite) s'est régalé durant toute une semaine à Lespugues.
Chacun de nous y a trouvé ses petits moments de bien être. Il y a de petits espaces pour chacun afin d'être au calme et indépendant et de grandes pièces communes pour être ensemble.
La cuisine est aménagée pour "cuisiner en grand".
Le salon peut être un lieu confortable de lecture ou un lieu pour les adolescents qui se sont émerveillés de trouver toute une panoplie de jeux d'écran ou de jeux de société.
Les plus petits se sont fait des cabanes dans les multiples recoins à l'étage en s'inventant plein d'histoires.
En ce qui concernent les adultes, certains ont fait de bonnes sorties cyclistes, d'autres des visites de lieux historiques, des balades à pieds où l'on a découvert une merveilleuse faune, de la pêche.
Et tous, nous avons profité des deux terrasses, l'une en rez de chaussée pour les bonnes tablées, l'autre à l'étage immense avec de grands canapés idéales pour "coincer la bulle".
La piscine ....chauffée!!! un délice avec tout à disposition et en grande quantité, transats, matelas, parasols.
Le jardin est grand, bien entretenue et très joli. Il a été témoin de longues parties de "cache cache" et de jolies scènes de vie en famille.
Ces vacances à Lespugues nous ont permis de nous réunir en famille alors que nous sommes tous très différents.
Il y avait :
-une personne agée handicapée qui grâce à l'aménagement de la maison être dans le quotidien avec le reste de la famille;
-6 enfants entre 5 ans et 14 ans;
-4 couples dont les activités étaient très différentes: farniente, sports intensifs, ballades relaxes...
Bref, la maison permet de réunir une famille nombreuse et très diversifiée en son sein tout en permettant de contenter les uns et les autres.
Nous étions très très bien.

The house is in the village of Lespugue, a small village near Bolougne Sur Gesse, about 80km from Toulouse airport. It is a farming village and very rural. This is a real community where you will be made to feel very welcome, especially if you have children. There are around 20 houses in the village. There is almost no traffic through the village. Driving around the whole region is a pleasure. There are endless possibilities for traffic free and varied cycling directly from the village.

There is a small church, a little museum dedicated to the statue of venus found in the village and now in the Louvre. The museum serves drinks outside in the summer on a typically ah hoc basis. The scenery around the village is simply stunning, rolling farmland giving way to views of the Pyrenees.

There are ruins of the old chateau on the edge of the village and one of Europe's best preserved Roman Villa's a few kilometres away.

The nearest shops are in Blajan about 4km away where you will find a lovely bakers and a cafe/post office/shop.

About 9km away is Bolougne Sur Gesse which has a range of supermarkets, a fabulously local Wednesday market and a couple of swimming lakes.

The Pyrenees are around 45 minutes away and offer unlimited possibilities for hiking, cycling and outdoor sports and adventure sports.
