About DEMASLES CHRISTIAN
Owner of this neighbouring house of our family house ( 4 children) but totally independent both at the level of the building and of gardens
DEMASLES CHRISTIAN purchased this House in 2013
Why DEMASLES CHRISTIAN chose Lourdes
We rent this house when we do not use him(it) to accommodate friends and family in the best conditions possible and use the garden for some fruit and vegetable groves
What makes this House unique
Very quiet place with a green setting in full ideal city center for a stay directed on sanctuaries or region of the Hautes-Pyrénées (trail round in mountain, organised trips towards the 'Pic du Midi' or Cirque de Gavarnie.Access easy to 600 m of the station and 20 km of the airport of Heavy. The closest ski resort in 45 minutes.

Lovely property, very central, with garage
The owner is very helpful and easy to communicate with.
The property is accessed via a car park, which is initially off putting, but once you enter it is lovely. A large garden, with a patio and seating, leads to the house. There is everything that is needed including a dish washer and washing machine. The house is large and has a good sized TV.
I have given four stars as some elements such as the sofa and a number of chipped plates make some elements feel a little tired. We also had a problem with ants that Christian, the owner, helped with very quickly.
At the end of the garden there is a large gate that makes you feel very secure at night (although Lourdes feels very safe anyway) and a parking area for one car. There is also a garage.
The house is situated behind the parish church and it is very easy to get to. It is ideal as you can walk to the Grotto and Domaine in about 15 minutes but also get to shops and out of town very quickly. It is metres from good shops, baker etc.
Beautiful property with French character and charm
Couldn't be happier. The property was very well located, a short walk from the high street shops, very near a beautiful church, and the tourist office, and about a fifteen to twenty minute walk from the grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes. Our host, Christian, was very welcoming and came out to meet us in the rain. He helped carry our bags into the property and even left us his umbrella as we neglected to bring one! He gave us a quick tour of the place, which looked just like the photos only even more charming and spacious. We found it exceptionally clean and tidy. It had all the mod cons one could want, including an automatic fire which added a lovely cosiness to the place. We have two children and especially appreciated the baby cot, high chair, and selection of toys and games we found in the large cupboard. There is a downstairs wet room for disabled guests (which we did not need to use), a lovely large shower upstairs, and a bath tub which was great for bathing our little ones. The garden was large and had many areas to sit and relax, but as we stayed in November it was too cold to enjoy. Check in and check out were easy and Christian made himself available by phone the entire time. We did call on him as the fire ran out of fuel and he was very responsive. The only small suggestion we would make is that it could possibly do with a new sofa, but that did not negatively impact our stay. We highly recommend the property and would stay again.
Lovely house in a really nice setting
This is a really nice house, conveniently located within walking distance of the town, sanctuary and station. The house has all the facilities necessary for a comfortable stay and a lovely garden too. The owner was very helpful and attentive. We would definitely stay again!
First stay in Lourdes
I was amazed that this property could be both so very secluded but also within a short walking distance of the centre of French life, Les Halles, the market. Also close by was the Tourist Office, very helpful in giving advice. Also, there was a mini supermarket which certainly stocked enough goods for all basic needs. I do recommend Les Halles for buying all manner of things, obviously bread, cheese, ham, also made dishes, I loved the Ratatouille. There was also a big outdoors market one day for produce from the area; I bought white asparagus, salad stuff, pork rillettes and some lovely Apricot jam.
Some of these stalls were quite large, others small, I noticed that some elderly ladies were selling a few items, some homemade jam and a few vegetables or eggs. A very vibrant atmosphere, it was a 'catch up' and allowed everyone to talk about the past weeks' events.
As everywhere, tremendous friendliness towards me and my friend- something to be remembered.
For many, the importance of Lourdes is for the shrine to The Virgin. Very easy to get to there by foot or on a bus. The bus, from memory, S5, is a circular one about 6minutes from the house. It goes to the Basilica. The roads near the shrine are full of shops selling typical tourist things relating to Lourdes. Having said that Incame across a very interesting shop that sold fossils and I purchased an Ammonite as my souvenir.
I also took bus to SNCF Gare to take localbus to Cauterets - check times - , terrific journey towards foothills of Pyrenees; two people selling their wares, bought more cheese, olives, pork and duck pate. Had a pleasant meal and returned. Cauterets very much a ski resort but worth a visit.
Took train from SNCF Lourdes to Pau, a University town also very historic as Henri fourth of Navarre had palace there, also for those interested in history, Bernadotte, who founded the line of the present Swedish Royal family was born there.
Back to the house; a beautifully presented property with a delightful garden, long and private because of position and the trees. Lovely to sit outside and enjoy a coffee or glass of wine.
I would certainly wish to return again; a word of advice, make sure you understand the two controls for the TV, not complicated but I wasn't used to dual control. I know that M Desmales will ensure that a few basics are left if someone is arriving late.
A very enjoyable seven days, a part of France I had not visited before; delightful in every way.
Tranquil, clean and very convenient Lourdes house stay
We spent 4 very enjoyable days at Christian's lovely house. Very stylish property with great mod cons. Spacious, with a lovely secluded feel to the place. Easy 10-15 minutes walk to the grotto. Good wi-fi, and very friendly house owner. Would definitely stay here again when in Lourdes.
Loved the experience
Was a great stay overall, they went over and beyond. The owners were wonderful, the house was very big and clean. They provided any help when we needed it. Only a 15 minute walk to the sanctuary, and other sites like the museum. Lovely mountains to climb nearby. Overall it was a great experience. If we ever visit Lourdes again this will be the first place we will enquire. Many thanks again to the lovely hosts.
And if there are any elderly visitors there are downstairs toilets available to make it easier
