Excellent spacious and beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this beautiful property. The pool is perfect and the outdoor seating area was lovely. We used the bikes to cycle locally and were able to get to lots of places easily. We would definitely think of coming back to this property.

A very picturesque spot with lovely rolling countryside and nearby villages with good shops and markets. A nice large swimming pool and within easy reach for a day out in the Pyrenees.

Away from it all in comfort

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house, gorgeous garden, plenty of room for all - all of the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. French shutters are great for shutting out the sunshine and keeping the cool inside and also for a good night's sleep. Kitchen was missing the toaster - which is being fixed I believe, but otherwise was very well equipped. Lovely area for dining outside or just relaxing and the pool was great, although the week we were there the weather prevented us using it every day. C'est la vie. Some good restaurants but a bit of a drive. The daily bread is not quite on the doorstep but not far away - ditto for shops. Countryside is beautiful and devoid of tourists. Would recommend Auch and St Bertrand de Commenges - and all the little villages here and there. Pretty easy to find and access. Denise very responsive. Thanks to all.

Excellent Property Enjoyed Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely very true to the pictures. The house was very spacious and contained everything needed for the holiday including extras such as table tennis table and xbox. The pool was large and warm and we made good use of the coffee machine and ice maker facility in the fridge/freezer.The property is set in lovely countryside.

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 .
