Gite near Bagneres de Bigorre, Hautes-Pyrenees, Midi-Pyrenees, France - Peaceful Location With Stunning Mountain Views and pool.
This spacious and well appointed apartment is situated in the grange attached to our 18h century farmhouse and set in 1 acre of south facing garden with 10m x 5m pool enjoying a wonderful, natural setting with superb mountain views.
We are situated at the base of the Haute Pyrenees within the village of Cieutat, which has a traditional 'boulangerie' providing freshly made bread/croissants and patisserie every morning.
Gites de Bigorre is the perfect place for whatever event or activity holiday you are planning – or just for total relaxation in a stunning setting.
The gite is well placed for all mountain activities i.e skiing, cycling, walking at all levels, mountain biking, paragliding, horse riding, bird watching and fishing. For golfers there is a beautiful international 18-hole course (overlooking the mountains) within a 5mins drive. Or take things at a more leisurely pace and visit the local mountain villages, nearby Pau, beautiful St Bertrand de Comminges, a pilgrimage to Lourdes, take a day trip over the mountains into Spain via the many passes or tunnels or visit one of the numerous thermal spas.
Please note that WIFI is available but we are in rural France and it can therefore be slow. However 4G works well.
The Tour de France is also a big attraction here in July and in the winter there is some of the best skiing and winter sports facilities in the Pyrenees.
The gite benefits from a shared pool in the privacy of the main garden with fantastic panoramic views. The perfect way to end an active day or to simply relax the day away.
Although the gite is very well equipped for self catering there are many bars and restaurants in the nearby spa town of Bagneres de Bigorre. Or in the mature gardens there are stone built barbeques with plenty of seating again affording magnificent views of the mountains.
Fully fitted kitchen with full size oven, hob, microwave, fridge freezer and all equipment required for a self catering holiday.
Open plan dining/living with dining table and four chairs.
Three seater sofa bed and 1 chair.

Lovely apartment in the foothills of the Pyrenees with stunning views. A modern and beautifully presented gite, clean, fresh, very comfortable,with a great bed. The gite is perfect for two people and has a sofa bed for two more, small kitchen but is well equiped. The swimming pool is spotlessly clean, if a little chilly in late September! Location is great for mountain trips, lots of local small towns to visit and explore. Excellent hosts, very welcoming and friendly but not intrusive. We would recommed a visit to this and the larger gite on site to anyone wishing to explore this beautiful region of France.
