The barn has great cooking facilities so we ate in every night. The neigbours are friendly (if you like donkeys, horses and deer). Col d'Aspin and the Tourmalet are nearby for cycyling enthusiasts and great walks with fantastic views. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would consider going back.

I would recommend this property to friends and family. Chloe was very kind and helpful when we had queries. I can recommend the Auberge Lou Fabeclo at Beaudéan and the Céperie in Arreau for good, authentic French cuisine. In general, we has lunch out and breakfast and dinner at home. The lake at Payolle is worth a visit and the road continues over a pass with spectacular scenery. The same can be said for the road though La Mongie to the Cirque de Gavernie. There are many bicyclists on the roads in this area - it's a popular route for the Tour de France. Since guests arrive on Saturday after 3 pm, you should be aware that the local supermarkets (Intermarché, Lidl and Carrefour) are open until 8 pm, but are closed on Sunday.
