Guestbook comments from the owner

Bonjour Tania,

Notre séjour à Gere a été très agréable. Les enfants étaient ravis des activités de la maison et les parents ont pu apprécier le calme de la maison.

L'accueil et le départ se sont réalisés dans les meilleures conditions et Christophe nous avait donné toutes les informations sur la région.

Bien cordialement,

French Holiday House Pyrenees

  • 5 of 5

Dear Tania and Pete

a fantastic house, fabulous location, all the tips and recommendation you could ever need; basically a perfect holiday. It truly was a home from home and we didn't want to leave. Our three kids loved the garden, games room and mountain hikes - they could have fun, charge about and basically be children. The Laruns swimming pool was brilliant as were the suspended forest, vulture sanctuary and the petit train. There were a dozen more things to do which we didn't get to so we'll save those for next year!

If you are reading this wondering whether to rent it then the answer is definitely yes. Its a big house with tons of beds, beautifully presented throughout with loads to do. We went in the summer and I'm sure its even better in the snow.

thanks again Tania and Pete - we loved it

Beaucoup de charme pour cette bergerie

  • 5 of 5

Tout d'abord, une situation idéale, au calme, près de Laruns sans en avoir les inconvénients, et une vue imprenable sur le pic du Ger!

Nous avons particulièrement apprécié la salle à manger très spacieuse (nous y avons mangé à 12 sans se gêner), la salle de jeux pour les enfants qui assure la tranquillité des parents, le grand jardin dans lequel on peut garer plusieurs voitures, la literie très confortable.

Le petit plus, une déco sympa, bref, on se sent presque chez soi et on a envie d'y revenir!

Excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

La maison se prête parfaitement à des vacances à plusieurs familles (nous étions 4 couples et 9 enfants de 1 à 4 ans).

Les 5 chambres sont bien meublées avec du rangement. Les gros points positifs: la salle de séjour, immense et agréable, avec une grande table pour les repas; les 2 salles de bains spacieuses.

Bonne situation géographique: de nombreuses randonnées et activités à proximité, commerces à 5 minutes à Laruns.

merveilleux séjour

  • 5 of 5

région magnifique, grande maison (malgré un nombre important 15), personne ne s'est gêné.

Bonne literie;

Parfaite situation, prés de Laruns, pas trop loin des pistes de Gourette, et des promenades en raquettes sur le cirque de Haneou, nombreuses promenades sur place sans prendre sa voiture, visite des fromageries et des vieux villages environnants.

Chacun y a trouvé son compte, grands et petits (de 2 ans à 75 ans)
