Overview

About the property

Villa in Eoux, Nr. Aurignac, Haute Garonne, Midi Pyrenees - Tranquil location with Mountain Views

The house sits on the crest of a hill, surrounded by rolling countryside and woodland, and faces south towards spectacular views of the Pyrenees. We bought the old house 10 years ago and have lovingly restoring it, this is its fourth year open to guests and we hope it will be appreciated for it's special location and beauty. It is a family home and as such has most things you want on holiday. The interior is comfortably furnished to a high but simple finish. There is a very large kitchen diner, opening onto a west facing terrace, a cosy sitting room, a double ensuite, bunk room and family bathroom on the ground floor. Upstairs are 3 huge bedrooms, with an ensuite in one and a shared bathroom for the other two.

The views of the Pyrenees are spectacular.

About Victoria Bate

We are an English family, who live in Hertfordshire. We bought Le Reve 11 years ago as a complete wreck, see photo! It took 6 years (and a few nervous breakdowns)!

to renovate, with (we think) wonderful results. We have tried to make Le Reve, beautiful but not precious. User friendly, very cosy and comfortable, with everything you need, but not too much excess. We like to think of it as simple, but elegant. It's a very special place for us, and we hope it charms you in the same way. We have been letting for five years now and have had lots of very nice feedback. 4 lots of people have been back twice, and one family have just booked in for their third visit.

Victoria Bate purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why Victoria Bate chose Saint-Gaudens area

We bought in this area because my very good friend lives in the village of Alan, 10 minutes away. Visiting her we came to love the area, and bought Le Reve, after many holidays, and many house viewings! My friend, Mme Lavinska is at the Palais des Eveques, in Alan, and the Palais is open to the public, Saturday and Sunday afternoons through the summer.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We revel in the peace, we love just being there, swimming, playing tennis, more swimming, preparing lovely lunches, playing boule out the front, drinks and nibbles on the terrace, watching the mountains. It's a completely different pace of life and we love getting into a slower pace for a week or two.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The House, pool etc was superb and fitted out to a high standard which coupled with the splendid views made it a great tranquil holiday location.



You have a lovely place here in a great setting with beautiful views - you have obviously spent alot of time and effort renovating this house to the superb standard it is and thought of every detail - we have spent time in a few holiday houses and this definately is one of the best - Thank You!

Il Colletto

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for five days during June 2014. The house is absolutely beautiful equipped with everything you would need. The pool is huge with a spectacular view of the surrounding towns and the ocean. We spend most of our time by the pool and in the games which which is a lot of fun. The close by towns are lovely with some delicious food from great local restaurants. We would high recommend Il Colletto and plan to go again next year.

Beautiful villa + perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

I came to stay there with my boyfriend's family for a week last summer and we had the most amazing time. The villa is located amongst beautiful French countryside, has a big swimming pool and anything you need to truly relax and enjoy your holiday. You can really tell that the owners thought through every detail, making sure that all bedrooms are comfortable and stylish and that there is plenty of space for any other activities. The villa also has a spacious kitchen, living room and outside patio - where we (group of 10) spent a lot of lovely evenings drinking wine and enjoying fresh produce from the markets nearby.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay, this villa is a real find!

It is not possible to be disappointed by anything in this really dream home . Everything has been thought through carefully by the owners who love to use it as their own home. each bedroom is a delight and has its own bathroom, the large kitchen is practical and convivial, the swimming pool, is the centre of family life, and the view of the Pyrenees is stunning!!!
