Beautiful family house in stunning countryside

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully presented with a mixture of original features combined with a modern feel. The house contains all the equipment needed - from the kitchen to the games room, the owners have thought of everything to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible. The pool has recently been relined and is heated to a constant 27c making it perfect for the little ones and the adults as well!. The pool is serviced twice a week which means it is always clean and we don’t have to worry about the chemicals. The garden faces south with beautiful views over the rolling fields and onto the Pyrenees.

The owner was quick to help with any issues or questions we have and we would certainly recommend this house and the area to other families.

Stunning property in beautiful French countryside

  • 5 of 5

Maubec is a stunning slice of French culture in the heart of a lovely little village. It has been beautifully renovated and is equipped with everything you'll need (including an Espresso machine, my favourite!) and more. The pool was clean and warm and the property felt very homely. The games room kept the adults entertained too! Had a wonderful time at the Maubec and would definitely recommend to all friends and family.

A great week for 3 generations

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in the house. The house was clean, well equipped and lovely.

For the kids the morning trip to the bakery was the highlight of the day, and the swimming pool next.

One day we had a chef coming to the house, a great experience. The youngest was full after the first course.

Peaceful family holiday in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday in this lovely house that feels like a home. Excellent communication with the helpful owner throughout, good directions and the property was very easy to find. On arrival the house was clean and the pool warm. The children all loved the swimming pool and the pool table, and we enjoyed the tranquility and lovely views of the mountains. The restaurant recommendations offered were helpful - we had several good meals out and found the kitchen well equipped when we wanted to cook for ourselves.

This is a special place and very much recommended.

French rustic charm at it's best!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming property with everything large families need for an amazing trip to rural France. The commingeiose has been tastefully restored and can accommodate a large amount of people comfortably whatever the weather. Our kids swam every day even in October, and we visited the nearby lake, natural pools and explored the local gorge and monastery. There's plenty to do for nature explorers, and the local shops offer amazing value.

Saint Lary Boujean:-

A beautiful hamlet located on a peaceful hilltop within the foothills of the Pyrénées.

As well as stunning views of the surrounding countryside and the mountains, it is just a 10-15 minute drive to Aurignac, Saint Gaudens or Boulogne-sur-Gesse with supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and local attractions.

Its proximity to the Pyrenees offers easy access to ski resorts which offer all year round walking, climbing, and water sports. There are also a number of thermal spas within an hour’s drive.

There is a fantastic boulongerie with the original mill within five minutes drive. The boulongerie’s van also visits the village twice a week if you are unable to make the short journey.

The local area is steeped in ancient history, with many Roman ruins easily accessible to the public. These are clearly signposted in the area.

Aurignac (10mins):-

The nearby picturesque mediaeval town of Aurignac provides excellent butchers, green grocers, a wine cave, bakers, restaurants, cafés, banks, a small cinema, a post office plus a doctor’s surgery and a pharmacy. There is also a lovely playground for children aged 2-10. There is a small market in the town on Tuesdays and Saturdays. During summer regular concerts and events take place, including an open air cinema, a night market, street theatre and world music. Classical concerts and further cultural events are also held in the Bishops Palace at Alan a further 5 minute drive from Aurignac.

Saint Gaudens (15mins):-

Lies right at the base of the Pyrenean Mountains, which gives it a truly spectacular setting. It is an ancient fortified town, whose mediaeval walls impart a sense of history to all who look on them. Built in the 11th century, and extended in the 14th century, the fortifications were modified when the internal walls were demolished in the 16th century.

Saint Gaudens has many lovely old cobbled streets and fascinating corners to explore. It also has a useful modern side to it, and as a sizeable town it can offer pretty much everything you may need. There are a number of shops and large supermarkets, doctors, dentists, schools and banks. There are plenty of good restaurants in which you can soak up the atmosphere of the town, enjoy a glass or two of wine and try the local gastronomic specialities. All tastes and pockets are catered for.

Boulogne Sur Gesse (10 mins):-

Pretty small town with several supermarkets that are open on Sunday morning. In addition there are a few cafes and restaurants, lovely lake with Municipal pool.

The Municipal Pool overlooks the lake is composed of 3 heated pools:

- 25-meter pool with diving board,

- Children’s Pool

- Paddling pool with mushroom (for babies and younger children)

- Fantastic Water slide.

It is open from the beginning of July and costs €3 for Adults and €2 for children.

Opening time:

♦ From Monday to Saturday from 10:30 to 12:30 and from 14h to 19h

♦ Sunday from 10:30 to 19h.

Next to the pool there is a snack bar and fantastic restaurant overlooking the lake.

Lac De Gimone (10 km from Boulogne Sur Gesse)

Saint-Blancard on Lake Gimone (280 hectares) is a beautiful bathing lake with a sandy beech overlooking the Pyrenees. From May to September you can also hire pedalos and canoes. The lake also has a picnic area, landscaped area for children, swings and a zip wire.

Saint-Bertrand-de-Comminges (36 km):-

Is one of the 'most beautiful villages of France’ and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The village is in a lovely sleepy location, surrounded by the lush green valleys of the region and overlooked by the Pyrenean foothills. In addition there is a lovely golf course overlooking a lake - Golf Du Comminges.

Built on the site of a Roman city, it was once a large town called Lugdunum Convenarum, where Pompeii ruled over 10,000 inhabitants. Things have changed slightly and the village now has about 250 inhabitants!

Further afield:-

Carcassonne (1hr 30 mins) with its famous walled mediaeval castle town and Albi (1hr 30 mins) with its spectacular red brick Cathedral. In addition you are equidistant from the beaches of Biarritz on the Atlantic and Narbonne Plage on the Mediterranean Coastline (240km).


Toulouse Airport is about 90 km away or about 1 hours drive and is our closest airport. It is very well served with up to 12 flights a day (in peak season) from Gatwick (Easy Jet), Luton (Easy Jet)London Heathrow (British Airways) and Stansted (Ryanair). In addition there are flights from Manchester, Bristol and Southampton.

Tarbes Lourdes Airport is about 100km and is served by Ryanair from Stansted Airport.
