About Hilary Pandya

I'm from the UK but work overseas. I return to France as often as I can to enjoy the house and the countryside.

Hilary Pandya purchased this house in 2009

Why Hilary Pandya chose Miélan

The Gers countryside and the nearby Pyrenees make the perfect location for my home. The local people are warm and welcoming and there are lots of local festivals and events throughout the year. There are many cultural and sporting activities that make this location special and attractive all year round.

What makes this house unique

The view of the mountains from the main bedroom in the house is inspiring and a great view to wake up to. The swimming pool in the garden is an idyll place to relax and take time out from sight-seeing activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We're now back in the UK after our time in France. Just to let you know we had a great time in your lovely property. At times there were 9 adults in our party and we never felt under any space pressure. The pool was well used and was welcome as the weather was (with two day's exception) hot and sunny.

Well equipped large house - perfect for our three families

  • 4 of 5

The house had everything we needed and felt roomy even when full of our noisy rabble. The master bedroom has been particularly well finished complete with an en suite bath/shower room. The pool was a real success and was just under 25 degrees most of the time. The blackberries and fig trees around the lanes were a lovely treat and the little ones (5 and 7) loved riding their bikes into the village (2.5km) with us to get bread and croissants in the mornings (the bakers on the market square definitely the best!). We brought our bikes too and my husband covered a fair distance exploring the local descents and burning off some of the cheese! The kitchen had everything you could need including a set of scales, various mixers and cake/tart tins, a variety of coffee making facilities etc.

Beron is situated 2km from Mielan, a pretty bastide village which has 2 bars, lunchtime restaurants, bakeries, butchers and a small supermarket. There's also a good takeaway serving pizzas and fast food.

Mielan is situated on a lake which provides walking, sailing and swimming opportunities. There are several other swimming lakes in the local area.

The Pyrenees are not far away - in the winter you can be on the slopes at St.Lary Soulan within 1/1/4 hours and there are many other great ski resorts in the area to visit. La Mongie, Peyragudes, Superbagneres, Cauterets and Gavarnie are just some of the resorts nearby offering excellent skiing and winter sports activities. Other winter activities include husky dog-sledding, snow-shoeing and horse-riding.

In the summer, the mountains offer great walking trails and beautiful scenery and waterfalls. Horse-riding, mountain biking rafting and water activities are available plus the opportunity to cycle up the famous cols of the Tour de France including the Tourmalet.

City visits include ancient Auch, home of D'Artangnan of the Three Musketeers and Pau which has a great chateau to visit. If you like horses, a visit to the National Stud in Tarbes is a must plus the amazing horse show there which is held in the summer.

The Gers countryside is rolling and green and there are many driving tours around the area including routes of bastide villages and local vineyards.

Music is a strong theme of the area with several festivals catering for all tastes. The house is only 20 minutes drive from the famous Jazz festival in Marciac (August) and 15 minutes from Mirande which has a lively cowboy music festival in July. In the north of the Gers, there's a great Latino music festival in Vic Fenzensac. In neighbouring Haute Pyrenees, Tarbes has a Tango festival in the summer plus many events all year around.
