Blissful relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Our family have just got back after two weeks of blissful relaxation at Hourquets. The house, pool and gardens were a delight. The many various forms of entertainment meant that the whole family were kept happy at all times. If you want peace and quiet you couldn't find a better place. My recommendation would be to make an early start one day and drive up and see the sunrise from Col du Tourmalet in the Pyrenees. Despite the long drive to and from the ferry at Caen I don't remember feeling more relaxed after a summer holiday.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 2 weeks , the house was Brilliant with masses of space inside and a beautiful tiled patio area leading to the pool. The house was full of really high quality fittings and all 4 En-suite bathrooms were excellent .

The pool was lovely with the easiest to use cover that we have come across in 13 years of holidaying ! Salt water made it easy on the skin and delightful during the Hot weather .

The outside area had really good seating which made it great to enjoy life in the garden.

Although we were only 5 , the house would easily work with a larger group.

The house was even better than in the photos and I would definitely recommend it to any one looking for a holiday in the Midi Pyrenees .

Charming old farm house with all relevant things present , to provide a relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the pictures really present the house as it is and everything which should be present in the house, is present.

The area around the house is very quite, and will give you a very relaxed time to spend. Further more the house is very charming since it is equipped with a lot of 'old' details. All bedrooms are provided with showers which is perfect. Kitchen is spacious , and in the rooms you can relax by looking at the televisions. The WIFI works as it should be working. Last but not least, the garden is spacious with a perfect pool as the centre of attention.

The area , is very beautiful with an outlook on the Pyrenees. Sufficient to do in the area, but be prepared before you are headed somewhere.
