About Jane Yates

We (Tim and Jane) realised a 10 year dream when we moved to Sainte Marie de Campan in December 2013. After 30 years with the Metropolitan Police Tim retired in 2012 and we started our house hunt in France. We had holidayed all over France and enjoyed all the different regions but the Hautes Pyrenees has always been our favourite area. We wanted a to find a house with lots of character, in a tranquil setting, near the ski resorts and surrounded by beautiful walks and were so lucky to find a home that ticked all the boxes. Our sons are currently at university in the UK and we're looking forward to their visits in the holidays. Now that we've settled in we're busy discovering the wonderful surrounding walks with our two Border Terriers Eddy and Charlie.

Jane Yates purchased this cottage in 2013

A Pyranneen Delight

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent a fortnight in the Gite de Midi and have no hesitation in recommending it to others. Tim and Jane Yates made us very welcome and throughout our stay were most helpful without being intrusive. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Situated a kilometre or thereabouts up the road to the Col de Tourmalet from the village of Ste Marie de Campan (boulangerie, general store and 2 modestly priced restaurants) with the market town of Bagnere de Bigorre with its supermarches and a wide variety of shops only some 20 minutes away by car it was an excellent base for exploring the higher lands of the Pyrannees in that area: plenty of varied walks through high pasture land or serious cyling on the routes of the Tour de France Alernatively for the less active, picnic by Le Lac de Payolle en route to Col d'Aspin and the attractive village of Arreau. At the same time it was an easy drive to Lourdes, Lannemezan and the contrasting villages, hills and valleys of Les Baroonnies
