The stand alone property is not overlooked. It is a self catering four bedroom house, the layout would easily accommodate two families. The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, a further bedroom on the ground floor has an en-suite toilet and shower. Two further bedrooms on the first floor have one double bed and two single beds, there is also a wet/steam room on the ground floor. The lounge is very spacious and comfortable with a large inglenook fireplace, the kitchen has a central island with a spiral staircase serving the master bedroom. The kitchen is fully fitted with an american style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, induction hob and double oven. The dining room has french doors opening out to a patio and steps to the swimming pool. The utility room is equiped with a washing machine and tumble dryer, with a door which leads out to a private covered eating area, perfect for those balmy evenings listening to the sounds of evening birdsong. The property has private parking and is secure with a gated entrance. There is excellent free tennis facilities nearby. This is a get away holiday location with uninterrupted views of the Pyrenees, it is a deeply rural area so a car is essential.

Why Ann Gunter chose Monfaucon
If you want to escape excesses of everyday life and totally relax, then this is the place to come. Stock up with tasty provisions from local markets, purchase some excellent wine from the nearby vineyard at Plaisance. Then sit back and look the magnificent views of rolling countryside and the Pyrenees looming out of the haze on a clear day, from the sympathetically renovated farmhouse. Enjoy al fresco lunches under an open plan shelter, protected from the midday sun. Then cool off in the newly added pool. You can be in the heart of the Pyrenees in just over an hour where there is magnificent walking, outdoor pursuits such as VTT, white water rafting, canyoning and paragliding. The Atlantic coast with its sandy beaches and crashing waves for surfers can be reached in a couple of hours.
What makes this House unique
Stunning uninterrupted view of the Pyrenees and rolling hills. This beautifully restored farmhouse offers comfort and tranquility. The house is in a private rural location. The annual jazz festival in Marciac for the first two weeks in August, the town comes alive with music, is only 15km away.

Beautiful gite in wonderful surroundings
We had a fabulous fortnight in this beautiful gite. The house was spacious and very well equipped. We loved spending time at the pool and enjoying the tranquil surroundings. The house and views more than lived up to the pictures on the website.
The nearest town and supermarkets were about 15 minutes away but we usually managed to combine visits with trips to the mountains (Pic du Midi and white water rafting were fantastic!) or the coast (2 hours to Biarritz). We also enjoyed local wine tasting at Chateau Bouscasse and even got to see The Tour de France go by, practically on the doorstep!
This was a wonderful, very relaxing holiday. Thank you Anne and David for letting us use your beautiful home. The welcome goodies were very much appreciated too.
Thank you for your wonderful review, I’m so glad that you all had a fabulous time.
Very best wishes
Un excellent séjour chez Ann au calme et proche de Marciac
La maison est très agréable et permet de loger facilement 8 personnes. Les équipements sont de très bonne qualité. Ce qui est le plus remarquable c'est la situation, un très grand calme avec une vue magnifique. Avec les grosses chaleurs la piscine a été très appréciée. Tout cela nos a permis de visiter un peu la région, de beaucoup participer au festival de jazz de Marciac à 20 mn en voiture. Je recommande donc vivement !
Merci beaucoup pour votre avis, je suis si heureux que vous et votre famille avez passé de bonnes vacances.
