N.B. Our price includes all linen, bathroom & kitchen towels and also pool towels. A great saving on weight and space whether flying or travelling by car
The small sleepy village of Latoue is ideally situated midway between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean coasts, giving easy access to the historic cities of Toulouse, Carcassonne and Albi to the east; Lourdes, Pau and Biarritz to the west; the Pyrenees and Spain to the south; and the wine regions of Gaillac and Fronton to the north.
The nearest airport - served by Easyjet, British Airways and Air France plus others - is Toulouse, which is less than an hour's drive away. Two other airports - Pau and Carcassonne - also serve the area, they are both less than two hours' drive from Latoue.
The village of Latoue is located on the D8, midway between the market towns of Aurignac and St. Gaudens. It is approximately 12 miles from junction 21 of the A64 motorway. It is in the French 'département' of Haute-Garonne (31) and the local area, known as the Comminges, lies between the hills of Gascony and the striking mountains of the Pyrenees.
Latoue has a small bar, which is closed Monday to Wednesday, at the weekend Anna-Marie makes bread and cakes on the premises and can be bought from the bar. Latoue is served by a mobile baker most days, who has a good stock of bread, cakes, croissants, eggs, wine, etc, while all other daily requirements can be obtained either in Aulon, where there is a small supermarket and a post office, a 5 minute drive or in St Gaudens, a ten minute drive from Latoue. In St Gaudens you will find supermarkets, bakers, butchers, greengrocers, newsagents, pharmacy, banks, post office, hairdressers, bars and restaurants.
There are ample leisure facilities available locally. All year round there are festivals and fetes where you can experience the local life and culture at its most relaxed.
Latoue has its own lake, and fishing with a permit is possible at certain times of the year. Or, for the more adventurous, you might like to try your hand at canoeing, cycling or skiing.
Brilliant host Brilliant Village Brilliant fishing what more can we say.
We will be back .two weeks next time.
The Gite itself was lovely, it was well equipped and maintained. The amenities were fantastic. My 5 year old twins were in there element in the pool, in the entertainment room, and exploring the secret garden and grounds. The situation is idyllic in a traditional village but also within easy access of supermarkets and bigger towns and attractions. The owner (Francesca Miller) was always on hand to help and advise and was the perfect hostess. We will be going back next year and would recommend this holiday home.
We had a lovely week at this beautifully maintained property. Three of us but plenty of room for more. The kitchen is huge and one of the best equipped we have ever had in a holiday rental, making cooking a pleasure. It is in a very quiet and peaceful area with nice walks around the lake. There are several large supermarkets in the nearby town of St Gaudens and from there you can take the train to Toulouse which we did and had a very good day out. All in all a lovely property with Francesca the owner being on hand to provide help and advice but never intrusive. We would love to return some time in the future.
We had a fantastic week at La Grange. Francesca is the most thoughtful and kind hotess and the place is wonderful! We stayed with our 2 young children and my parents and it was perfect. The gardens are so beautiful with lots of gorgeous areas to sit and enjoy them and bbq! Brilliant games room with cinema and toys- the pool was fantastic. Francesca was so helpful and kind throughout our stay. Highly recommended.
The property provided even more than described in the listing. It was very well maintained and the slightest problem was immediately attended to by the owner. The facilities provided, be it kitchen, linen, living room and the outdor areas could not have been more generous. The owner was extremely helpful and nice. I could recommend this place to anybody as long as he or she is aware that the property is in a very small village and it requires a car to go to the near-by town of St. Gaudens (approx. 5 minutes drive).
Big rooms, plenty of space, great antique furniture, huge kitchen with everything you could possibly need and more, nice outdoor bbq area, immaculate pool. Sleepy village location but easy drive to saint Gaudin and the Pyrenees.
La description complète sur l'annonce correspondait bien à ce que nous avons trouvé et très apprécié. Nous avons été agréablement étonnés par la taille des pièces très vastes. Seule la salle de bain est un peu exigue.
Sinon, ce gîte est parfaitement équipé. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'accueil, l'environnement , la décoration intérieure et extérieure, l'hospitalité et l'amabilité de Francesca.
A savoir cependant, il est très difficile voir impossible de téléphoner à partir d'un mobile dans tout le village.
Malgré cela nous recommanderons vivement cette location car on s'y sent très très bien!
The surrounding area is ideal for walking, whether you are looking to take a leisurely stroll and simply admire the scenery, or go for a more energetic hike, there are many marked paths, and maps and guidebooks are also available. The climate is temperate, so is very well suited to outdoor pursuits. The winters tend to be dry, the summers hot, and both spring and autumn are mild, with no more than moderate rainfall.
Gentle valleys and sheer mountains, peaceful lakes and abundant forests, medieval fortifications and Romanesque architecture are just some of the features you will discover between the Garonne and the Pyrenees.
Saunter as you please along the paths which crisscross fields and vineyards, follow the steep peaks and upper Pyrenean valleys, immerse yourself in town or village life or soak up the goodness of thermal spas. The inhabitants of the Haute-Garonne are extremely hospitable people and will be happy to reveal the secrets of their art of living.
