A perfect property
A wonderful property, clean, spacious and comfortable. Christopher and Alison are the perfect hosts, on hand if needed, but always respecting our privacy. The house was well equipped with everything we needed. The wonderful was the icing on the cake - especially the cover. The area is so peaceful, with lots of lovely villages. People everywhere were so friendly. And then there are the mountains - wow!! All in all a great holiday location - would recommend to anyone.
Thank you Diane. We're glad you all enjoyed yourselves so much!
Ideal gite, welcoming hosts, beautiful location
We had an amazing stay in Lassere. The gite itself is incredibly spacious and comforable, really clean and had everything we needed. Chris and Ali were the ideal hosts, friendly and welcoming, happy to answer questions and also allowing us privacy to relax.
The swimming pool cover is amazing, letting you swim even in the early morning when outside temperatures are low and can be completed removed when it heats up. Bonus points for views of sunflower fields from the pool!
For us the area was ideal - gentle rolling countryside and close to the higher mountains for day trips. Lots of lovely towns nearby, each with bustling markets, ideal for buying food and practicing your french!
Couldn't recommend Lassere more highly!
Thanks for your feedback Hannah.
We're glad you enjoyed your stay so much.

Great location, lovely pool but unclear expectations from the property owner and a mouse.
This property is in a great location with stunning views and has a fabulous pool. The all weather cover is brilliant and means the pool is warm all the time and can be used on cloudy/wet days. The property itself is a little quirky (separate steep stairs to each of the two bedrooms so may not be suitable for those with very young children) but well presented with large rooms.
There was a list of things we were asked to do before leaving including taking out the bins, sweeping the floors, wiping all surfaces down and ensuring all kitchen items were clean and away. All of this seemed quite reasonable and we thought we had complied. Unfortunately, shortly after we left we received an email detailing problems that the owner had identified and stating that they had kept 50 euros of our deposit. We accepted that this was their right to do so and that we had overlooked issues such as emptying the bathroom bin and cleaning the Nespresso machine, however there also seemed to be an expectation that we would replace all furniture to the exact spot it had been in when we arrived (we had left two of the patio chairs facing a different direction and the living room furniture was apparently not quite in the same spot as when we arrived), that we would fully clean the kitchen (including dishwasher filters) and bathroom and that all kitchen items were returned to the same cupboard and drawer they were in on arrival (difficult to remember after a week!). If this is the expectation, we feel renters should be fully informed so they can try to comply.
There is a a smell of damp which the owners attempt to cover using plug in air fresheners. I am allergic to these so unplugged them and the smell of damp quickly became apparent. There is also a very active wood boring beetle infestation in the property that leads to significant accumulations of dust around the place.
Our main issue however was with the mouse that we found in the main bedroom one night which was a rather unwelcome visitor.
Overall, we enjoyed our week in the property. It did have it's issues but we were mostly happy to overlook them. The lack of detail around the owner's expectations of end of rental responsibilities and the subsequent deduction of 50 euros did leave a bad taste in our mouth however.
We strongly refute this supposed 'review'. It is not a review of the property, but an attack on us prompted by not liking being charged for leaving the property in an unsatisfactory condition. All we would like to say is to let the real facts speak for themselves, namely 16 years of renting out the gite, never a single complaint and 30 fantastic reviews. We asked Homeway to remove the review on the grounds that it wasn't a justified review and that it was unfair and inaccurate, but they would not as this did not represent grounds for removing a review. Apparently, people can say whatever they like, and provided that it it isn't defamatory, then that's OK
Fantastic relaxing family holiday in a beautiful farmhouse!!
We have just returned from a fantastic summer holiday.
Ali and Chris are wonderful hosts who have gone to great lengths to ensure that the Gite is like a home from home.
It’s a beautiful house that is spotlessly clean and very well equipped.
The pool is absolutely fantastic and as it has a removable cover, we could still use it on the couple of days the weather was a bit gloomy.
The view of The Pyrenees from the property was spectacular.
It’s a perfect spot to relax, unwind and recharge the batteries.
This really is a fabulous place to stay and we would highly recommend it.
We will definitely be back.
A luxurious gite.
Ali and Chris have thought of everything you might need during your stay.
The gite is spotlessly clean and immaculate throughout, as are the private gardens and the pool. ‘The Black Book’ information pack covers all aspects of the immediate and further surrounding areas.
We also had some other specific requests and these were assisted with promptly.
Ali and Chris gave us total privacy but were there to offer friendly help and advise when we needed it.
A high standard gite that we would love to return to.
Thanks very much Ellie. We appreciate your feedback :o)
Halfway in between Pau and Toulouse, we are situated in fabulous countryside with a myriad of rivers, caves, grottos & places of historic interest. There is beautiful flora and fauna & the stars are breathtaking.
Only 30 minutes away, the magnificent Pyrenees provide plenty to do to fill a dozen holidays– whether that’s skiing, cycling, walking, climbing, canoeing or rafting! Some of the main local interests you might like to pursue are:
Lannemezan market – enormous, over 2000 people every week. The Gorges de la Save – a natural rock gorge (trout fishing available). Montmaurin Roman ruins. Chateau de Mauvezin. Grottes de Gargas–prehistoric 27,000 year-old hand paintings. Boulogne/Gesse–fabulous open air pools in the summer with slides.
Spain-pop over the border for lunch, excellent ceramics & VERY cheap booze! Skiing–lots of ski resorts & spa towns near by. Wine and cheese tours–excellent wine châteaux, Armanac distilleries nr Condom & the famous Pyrenees brebis cheeses.
