About Owner/Property Manager

We have been coming to France for over 38 years and decided to make it our permanent home in 2006, with both our children (in their 30's) joining us here in 2010. The restoration of our gites has been a labour of love, with all the family helping to renovate them. We have three young English Springer Spaniels and we all love the 'Good Life'!

Owner/Property Manager purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Larreule

The area offers us everything with its micro-climate in winter to many days of summer sun and comfortable climate all year round. The mountains for skiing in winter, the beaches in the Pyrenees Atlantic in summer and rural living are perfect for everyone's taste. This friendly area with its beautiful countryside is perfect and Spain is just an hour away where we lunch with friends at weekends and take in the Spanish mountain views, cuisine and lifestyle.

What makes this cottage unique

We live in the middle of a rural community with very friendly and helpful French neighbours. Convenient to all local activities and amenities in the pretty market town of Maubourguet which is close by. During the summer months there is a host of local activities where everyone can enjoy the ambiance from wine tasting to the jazz festival in Marciac and many village fetes where locals eat, drink and enjoy life . Maubourguet boasts the largest fete which continues for 4 days and includes a funfair, singing and street dancing. It also has a recognised cultural and arts centre of excellence.

Two weeks of wonderful relaxation and weather.

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant place to have our annual vacation. The accommodation was clean, tidy and very welcoming. Our hosts made us feel very much at home, which was important to us and to them as they wanted us to have a relaxing and quiet time whilst with them.

The mountains and the sea are within easy reach of the property, which we took full advantage of, leading us to seeing some spectacular views. If you fancy a trip over the Spanish border, then it is a short trip to the town of Jaca where we had a lovely luncheon at what can only be described as more than plentiful and extremely reasonable.

We were able to spend many hours around the pool where it was very nice to dip your feet in the pool whilst reading a good book which we took full advantage of.

The hosts are always available for advice regarding the local area but not invasive.

Had a lovely stay in Valentine Gite, Juliet. the Gite was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Spacious and airy. Loved the quiet, peaceful country setting. Idyllic. Would definitely recommend and hopefully return some day. The owners were friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. The local nature parks are easy to find and well worth the day trips. Thank-you Valentines for a lovely break.

Lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

The gite was lovely, clean and well furnished. The pool was great and the chickens a hit with our kids. We BBq'd most nights and supplies were easily obtained from the Super U 5 mins drive away. The owners have a wealth of information on places to visit and restaurants if you're interested. We were fortuante in that our visit coincided with the jazz festival in Marciac which, like the wine festival in Madiran, had a plathora of places to eat, shop and enjoy life with the locals. The festivals around here are well supported by local people so are valuably French. We also had a day out at Pont d'Espagne in the Pyrenees where we travelled by chairlift as well as walked around Lake Gaube which is beautifully blue.

Perfect Pyrenees / Great Gite

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our stay in Larreule and want to say a huge thank you to Ron, Debi, James and Lucy for a wonderful holiday.

The Gite was spotlessly clean and well equipped, bedding and towels were super fresh and fluffy and the showers were amazing.

The owners are on hand to give advice about places to visit and to ensure you get the most out of your holiday but are discreet so as not to disturb you.

The location is ideal on two counts:-

It is quiet and therefore you can relax in peace and quiet and safely cycle to the supermarket and tennis court. (making sure your children get squirted by the farmers water cannons of course)

It is 40 minutes from Lourdes which is a really interesting day out. Cauterets is about 1 hour away and is a hidden treasure in the Pyrenees (Be sure to take warm clothes especially if you take the ski lift as it gets quite chilly)

Biarritz is a bit further afield but well worth the drive especially if you like to surf/body board.

We also fitted in a Tapas lunch in Spain (Les is just over the border and the views on the drive there are amazing)

The pool was a particular hit with our children as it was a good size and when they had enough there was a lovely garden to play in. (I best not mention the lawn mower)

Excellent value for money and would certainly recommend it to a friend.

Belle propriété au calme, avec un regret sur la disponibilité de la piscine et de la terrasse

  • 3 of 5

Un accueil agréable et une présentation claire des règles de fonctionnement du gîte lors de notre arrivée. Le gîte est très bien rénové et équipé, mais un gros bémol sur deux points non précisés sur la description : la piscine (partagée avec le 2e gîte "Roméo") n'est pas accessible le soir après 19h30, de même que la terrasse principale du gîte (les propriétaires qui occupent le corps principal se réservent l'endroit pour le soir). En revanche accès libre dès 10h.

Pour la terrasse, idem : les locataires bénéficient d'une terrasse privée mais donnant sur la cour et le parking (pas de photo en ligne d'ailleurs, seul le corps principal est présenté d'extérieur). Du coup compliqué pour les soirées à huit et le barbecue...

Owner's Response: Nous vous remercions pour vos commentaire sur nos gites et profitons de cette opportunité pour y répondre. La description du site internet décrit une propriété comprenant deux gites donnant sur une cour, avec d’amples espaces extérieurs et de jardin pour le confort de nos clients. Nous sommes conscients que nos clients aimeraient pouvoir profiter de la piscine 24h/24, mais malheureusement la piscine doit être nettoyée avec des produits chimiques et nous devons impérativement faire des tâches de maintenance autour de la piscine et des terrasses. La zone piscine a ouvert à 9h30 cette année au lieu de 10h, et nous l’ouvrirons plus tôt l’année prochaine (à 8h30). Nous avons pris en compte vos commentaires au sujet des barbecues. Pour la saison prochaine, nous mettrons à disposition un barbecue en briques et des sièges dans le jardin.

Biarritz is a two hour drive.


Lourdes/Tarbes airport is a 25 minute drive, Pau Pyrenees airport is a 45 minute drive and Toulouse is 2hrs drive. We offer a collection service to all three airports(prices available on request), however, the use of a car is highly recommended.


The property is close to the village of Maubourguet, which is on the Pilgrims route, with it's XI century church, originally part of a Benedictine monastery. Perfect for walking, cycling and enjoying the locally produced wine of Madiran and Saint-Mont in the many bars and restaurants. The village has riversides to offer visitors with plenty of picnic areas and space. The religious town of Lourdes is a 30 min drive, the historic town of Pau is a 45 min drive and Tarbes for shopping is 30 mins.

The nearest supermarket is a 15 mins walk or 4 mins by car.

The pretty market town of Maubourguet is situated near the foothills of the Pyrenees and is steeped in history with its 11th century church of St.Martin, originally part of a Benedictine Monastery. Maubourguet is also on the pilgrimage route of St.Jacques de Compostelle and is popular with hikers. There are many restaurants, cafes and bars with an abundance of boulangerie, bouchers and patisserie serving the best pain de chocolate in the region. The vineyards of St. Mont and Madiran are a short drive away where wine tasting can be sampled. Local wines, cheeses, saucisson and fois gras are just some of the produce offered at the local market on a Tuesday morning. Maubourguet also hosted a stage of The Tour de France in 2014 and The Tour will continue to pass through nearby towns in future years. Amazing views of the Pyrenees Mountains can be seen from Maubourguet and its surrounding villages and hamlets and are easily accessible by car for cycling, skiing, swimming (in mountain lakes) and hiking enthusiasts. The Spanish border is just over an hour away , take a trip there for lunch and experience the rural Spanish lifestyle. Nearby attractions cater for all tastes and include Pony Trekking in the many forests, The mountains, The Beach in Biarritz (2 hours drive), The Chateaux of Madiran and St.Mont, Lupiac (home of D'Artagnan, one of the 3 Musketeers), Lakes at Marciac, Lupiac and Aignan offering water sports and restaurant facilities, Tennis court, Fishing (take a Camel trek by the River Adour), The Jazz Festival in Marciac and the many markets in the surrounding villages most days of the week. White Water Rafting is popular in the mountains as is getting close to the Eagles at Bausen, children may also want to visit the Zoo at Argeles Gazost and of course Lourdes is closeby for those wanting to experience the vision of St.Bernadette.
