Beautiful, peaceful, perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

This is a most beautifully renovated property, in a tranquil setting. The house is perfect for families, with large comfortable rooms, stunning decor, with several areas inside and out for seating, drinking and dining to capture different moments in the day and evening. The outdoor area is excellent for children, with a wonderful pool and children's play area, all securely gated. The entire property feels calm, spacious and peaceful with room for privacy or socialising alike. The owners have done an incredible job at making this feel homely, welcoming, and well maintained and have thought of every small detail you may need to have an enjoyable holiday. The local area is beautiful and is perfect for a peaceful holiday in the stunning countryside.

Charming Setting

  • 5 of 5

Arriving with 3 demanding children, I was not disappointed by what was on offer. The pool was in constant use despite constantly changing weather. The trampoline was also in demand. The lack of wifi was soon forgotten and table tennis, pool and darts made up the rest of the pentathlon. If the adults wanted to download the newspapers the friendly café in Aurignac provided the wifi access. The house is lovely with large rooms especially the main bedroom with en suite which looks out over the countryside. All tastefully decorated and very homely. The kitchen is well equipped and the gas barbecue was in almost daily use. Unfortunately, the renowned boulangerie down the road was closed for holidays, but good excuse to drive to the nearby town/villages through the rolling hills and tree-lined roads to get the children's daily requirement of pain au chocolate and flan. The enormous hyper-market at St Gaudens has everything else you might need, but market day in St Gaudens was worth a visit. I look forward to returning soon.

Perfect holiday get away

  • 5 of 5

Reminded me of the friendliness and peace you find in Cornwall except for the view of the Pyreneese from the bedroom window!

15 mins from the very friendly restaurants and shops of St Gaudens, five mins from Aurignac and three mins from the local Boulangerie, this house was a real find. The sat nav will get you to Aurignac and follow owners (very good directions) from there

You could easily get your provisions from Le Clerk and bolt the gate for a week.

The Boulangerie for fresh daily bread, and pastries (that are not weightwatchers friendly) is a three min drive. The baker is lovely

We arrived on bank holiday May 1st and the supermarket (Le Clerk massive supermarket) was closed but the baker sold us cheese, eggs and bread and the owners had left us a bottle of wine so we just sat in the sunshine and drank wine and ate bread and cheese and took in the view. I would recommend the house as a get away from it all; for couples, a girls weekend or a family holiday. Easily room for two families and there's a down stairs en suite bedroom if you decide to bring granny to babysit

The garden has a lovely pool, play area, swings seesaw etc for little ones, a nice sized garden to run around or sunbathe and if its too hot outside, there's an indoor games room (books, videos, pool table) and a shaded gated patio, ideal for lo's. We had breakfast in the morning on the raised sun patio beside the play area and the view is fab.

We spent most of our time in the garden, and out and about locally. St Gaudens is 15 mins away and there are some lovely restaurants and coffee shops. The French are very organised with breakfast dinner and tea so if you turn up looking for lunch at 2 or 3 o clock, they look at you like you are crazy, but they do serve coffee and pastries any time of the day. So if you want lunch, arrive at 12 or 1pm. the food in Hotel St Laurans is magnificent, there's a leaflet with the phone number on the kitchen notice board of the house. We also went to Lourdes for the day. Very interesting and the views of the Pyrenees on the way are beautiful.

We lit the wood burner at about 9pm each evening and it was lovely to sit and watch a video or English (or french) TV.

The house inside was beautiful. Bedrooms very spacious. The kitchen has every pot pan and utensil Nigella Lawson would ever need! There is a baby gate on the front door (clever idea) so you can have the front door wide open and baby proof

We really enjoyed our stay and will be back

A Little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I felt compelled to write a review on this property. I have stayed in a lot of villas/houses over the years but one thing that made this property stand out from the rest was this felt like a home rather than a rental property. From the moment you drove up to the property you could see that this was a house lovingly restored and inside didn't disappoint either. The rooms were tastefully decorated and the kitchen fully equipped. To be honest we were there for one week and only really left the house to get provisions. We did venture into the nearby town Aurignac but only because we felt we should do. We were happy in our little bubble up on a hill with stunning views and only the sound of church bells. We went with another couple and our 11 year old son who took full advantage of the pool and us (several games of water volleyball, petanque and yahtzee) and lazed on loungers in the day. Come evening we would barbecue and sit out all evening (never used the lounge or switched on the TV once) or play pool and darts in the games room. For all you tech addicts I would say there is no WIFI at this house and the mobile phone signal is weak but that suited us just fine.

Saint Lary Boujean:-

A beautiful hamlet located on a peaceful hilltop within the foothills of the Pyrénées. As well as stunning views of the surrounding countryside and the mountains, it is just a 10-15 minute drive to Aurignac, Saint Gaudens or Boulogne-sur-Gesse with supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and local attractions are located. Its proximity to the Pyrenees offers easy access to ski resorts which offer all year round walking, climbing, and water sports. There are also a number of thermal spas within an hour’s drive. There is a fantastic boulongerie with the original mill, five minutes drive. The boulongerie’s van visits the village twice a week if you are unable to make the short journey.

The local area is steeped in ancient history, with many Roman ruins easily accessible to the public. These are clearly signposted in the area.

Aurignac (10mins):-

The nearby picturesque mediaeval town of Aurignac provides excellent butchers, green grocers, a wine cave, bakers, restaurants, cafés, banks, a small cinema, a post office plus a doctor’s surgery and a pharmacy. There is also a lovely playground for children aged 2-10. There is a small market in the town on Tuesdays and Saturdays. During summer regular concerts and events take place, including an open air cinema, a night market, street theatre and world music. Classical concerts and further cultural events are also held in the Bishops Palace at Alan a further 5 minute drive from Aurignac.

Saint Gaudens (15mins):-

Lies right at the base of the Pyrenean Mountains, which gives it a truly spectacular setting. It is an ancient fortified town, whose mediaeval walls impart a sense of history to all who look on them. Built in the 11th century, and extended in the 14th century, the fortifications were modified when the internal walls were demolished in the 16th century.

Saint Gaudens has many lovely old cobbled streets and fascinating corners to explore. It also has a useful modern side to it, and as a sizeable town it can offer pretty much everything you may need. There are a number of shops and large supermarkets, doctors, dentists, schools and banks. There are plenty of good restaurants in which you can soak up the atmosphere of the town, enjoy a glass or two of wine and try the local gastronomic specialities. All tastes and pockets are catered for.

Saint-Bertrand-de-Comminges (36 km):-

Is one of the 'most beautiful villages of France’ and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The village is in a lovely sleepy location, surrounded by the lush green valleys of the region and overlooked by the Pyrenean foothills. In addition there is a lovely golf course overlooking a lake - Golf Du Comminges.

Built on the site of a Roman city, it was once a large town called Lugdunum Convenarum, where Pompeii ruled over 10,000 inhabitants. Things have changed slightly and the village now has about 250 inhabitants!

Further afield:-

Carcassonne (1hr 30 mins) with its famous walled mediaeval castle town and Albi (1hr 30 mins) with its spectacular red brick Cathedral. In addition you are equidistant from the beaches of Biarritz on the Atlantic and Narbonne Plage on the Mediterranean Coastline (240km).


Toulouse Airport is 90 km away or about 1 hours drive and is our closest airport. It is very well served with 6 flights a day from Gatwick and London Heathrow. In addition there are flights from Manchester and Bristol.

Tarbes Lourdes Airport is about 100km and is served by Ryanair from Stansted Airport.
