The gite was ideal for one couple (though the single shower, accessed via one of the two bedrooms, could have been inconvenient for two couples). The only downside was the lack of WiFi.
The setting was ideally quiet and peaceful, and M. & Mme Bailleul (the owners) could not have been more helpful and generous. They provided excellent information beforehand, and were extremely responsive during our stay. They provided us with tomatoes etc. from their own garden, and when I asked M. Bailluel for directions to the nearest station de gonflage he insisted on pumping up my tyres himself.
Madiran itself has a boulangerie and one outstanding restaurant.
An altogether excellent holiday.
We can’t thank Paul and Pam enough for making our stay in their fabulous gîte an extremely relaxing and enjoyable experience - so much so that we are already planning to return later this summer. The accommodation has an immaculate contemporary interior, is spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything you could possibly need for a stress-free and relaxing holiday. The welcome pack including water, milk, eggs, ham, cheese, bread (I may have forgotten something there was so much), Pam’s truly delicious home-made jams and chutneys and bottles of local wines was a very generous, kind and thoughtful touch that was very much appreciated. After a long drive it tasted all the more delicious – thank you! The pool area and accompanying views over the rolling landscape, neighbouring vineyards and fields of sunflowers makes the heart sing and provides a lasting memory of our time spent in a fabulous location. Our hosts were attentive, friendly and helpful but never intrusive, offering advice on the local area and cuisine. We were very sad to leave but we are definitely going to return. On the day we left Pam and Paul very generously included us on their day out, taking us to see the Tour de France as it passed through the local area. This was a truly special end to our holiday.
Thank you Paul and Pam for everything you have done to make our holiday special – see you soon.
