CHARMING MOUNTAIN FARMHOUSE IN THE PYRENEES
We were recently fortunate to get the opportunity to take over this little gem in the French Pyrenees from Isabella and Søren, who spent 10 years redecorating this old farm house into a nice and charming guest house, and who have also been renting out the guest house (see reviews). The guest house will continue to be available for renting during the periods of the year when we are not using the guest house ourselves. There are two houses on the property, of which the guest house is the one that is available for renting. The property is located in the National Park "Parc naturel régional des Pyrénées Ariégeoises", and we are absolutely certain that you will enjoy the magnificent beauty of this place. We welcome you all.
