A lovely and well equipped holiday house at a beautiful surrounding.
We had 2 nice weeks in the Bigorre. The house is fully equipped and has a beautiful view of the valley of the Lesponne from the terrace. Because of the location of the house it is very easy to visit various attractions of the area. We walked a lot and the information available was very useful for us.The environment is very beautiful !
We have been to Lourdes, Pic du Midi, Cirque de Gavernie, Pont d' Espagne, Lac d'Orédon, Col de Tourmalet, Col d'Aspin and several other places in the Parc National des Pyrenées. In short it's a lovely place to stay. We hope to come back again in the future.

Very pleasant and quiet place
Very nice and peaceful place. Good startingpoint for hiking and cycling.
Only suggestion is to organise something against the flies in the house.
Zoals je een vakantiehuis van te voren wenst
Na een spontane en vlotte ontvangst door Emma (de beheerster) voelden we ons al snel thuis in deze compleet gerenoveerde woning. Goed meubilair, opgemaakte bedden en alle elektrische apparatuur zoals thuis: tv, magnetron, oven, flinke koelkast met vriezer, vaatwasser, wasmachine en droger. De weg naar het huis door de vallei van Lesponne via de onverharde weg omhoog ben je snel gewoon. Het huis met een mooi grasveld en terras is zeer rustig gelegen. Vanuit het huis zijn er al diverse wandelingen te doen. Met de auto is binnen een straal van 1 uur rijden ook veel te bereiken: Pau, Lourdes, Col du Tourmalet, Col d'Aspin en Cirque de Gavernie (1,5 uur). Wij hebben zeer genoten van ons verblijf. Onze recensie is dan ook zeer positief.
Sehr schönes Haus in wunderbarer Lage
Wir haben die Woche im Haus von Martin und Lorraine wieder einmal sehr genossen. Das Haus liegt wunderbar ruhig im Lesponnetal, ist sehr gut ausgestattet und hat einen sehr schönen Garten mit wunderbarer Aussicht. Es gibt sehr viele Wandermöglichkeiten, auch direkt vom Haus aus. Im Haus gibt es sehr viele gut recherchierte Informationen zu Wanderungen und Ausflügen in der Gegend.
Wonderful holiday in secluded, recently refurbished house with enchanting garden and amazing views
We had a fantastic week in this tasteful, comfortable and well appointed house. The weather was glorious so each day we had breakfast and dinner (mostly barbecues - trout from the trout farm in Beaudéan! ) outside, drinking in the views. We hiked, nearby ("walks from the doorstep" provided by Martin) and further away (cirque du Gavarnie, le col du Tourmalet), and visited the Pic du Midi (great when temperatures soar) and Pau. Such an interesting region with spectacular scenery. It was great to return to the house each afternoon and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Thank you Martin - and Emma who picked us up and accompanied us for the last mile or so (we would never have found the house on our own - but that's how we like it!)

Dear Katje,Jjean-Marc & Livia,
As you can imagine, we get quite a lot of 5 star reviews from folks who have stayed at our house in the Vallee de Lesponne, so reading such reviews is not exactly a new experience.
However, it was such a thrill to read your lovely review, because it was crystal clear that you had had a wonderful vacation & had really taken a lot of pleasure from the house, it's location & the nearby places you visited. You obviously enjoyed hiking & exploring in this fabulous region...perhaps it's the start of a love affair for you, just like it has been for us for the 15 years that we have owned the house. Come back again! Martin & Lorraine
You always build a hope and expectation of what you wish the cottage and location to be like in reality from the descriptions and other reviews and this place fulfilled its promise perfectly. Good honest accurate descriptions all round. The standard of presentation, finish and attention to detail was in our "Very Good to Excellent" category compared with other properties we have stayed in across France. All equipment, fixtures and fittings are to a modern consistent standard and everything thoughtfully chosen and fully operational.
The local meet and greet welcome was friendly and efficient with good phone/txt communications on the day, and flexibility on keeping in touch to plan our departure arrangements - no issues. Great balance of walks from the gite and day trips by car out to the key Pyrenees attractions. Ideal facilities provided for self catering, which we enjoy when choosing a property such as this one. A refreshing find and perfect for a quiet valley-side escape.
Thank you so much for your thoughtful & wide-ranging review...we are so glad that you obviously enjoyed the house & all its facilities very much as well as taking the opportunity to explore both nearby & further afield.
We are always thrilled when visitors react so strongly to the peace & tranquility of the location & really enjoy their stay...as you did.
We would love to welcome you back.
