You are asked to treat this house and it's belongings with respect and to leave it in the condition that you found it in. We also ask that you smoke outside for the convenience of the next guests. For the same reason we request that animals are not brought as we have had guests with allergies.
Accueil très chaleureux dans une grande maison de caractère pleine de charme et un côté désuet qui nous a beaucoup plu. C'est un peu comme se retrouver dans une maison de campagne de famille. Mme Wales est à la fois discrète et prévenante. Le petit déjeuner est un régal. Bien que dans le village il y a une sensation de campagne grace au terrain très agréable. Base pratique pour Jazz in Marciac.

Town centre location offering catered or self catering accomodation surrounded by stunning countryside. 15 mins drive from Marciac for the famous jazz festival held in August. 15 mins drive from the Madiran and St. Mont wine region with hundreds of domains to visit. Views of the Pyrenees and close to the route of the Tour de France (every now and then it passes in front of the house!). We are ideal for cyclists, hikers, music lovers, photographers, writers, everyone! My home is eclectic and a little quirky with mementos of my travels in the Middle East and elsewhere. It is very much 'me' and since I love meeting new people I find Airbnb the perfect opportunity to share my love of France, this region and my home.
