Cleaning

Special attention is paid to cleaning. After the gîte is cleaned up, absolutely every surface, materials and fabrics are disinfected with the help of a high temperature steamer!

This former barn is a separate, isolated building surrounded by fields and woods with magnificent views of the Pyrenean mountains (the barn is south-west facing). Completely renovated twelve years ago using natural building materials, there are stone walls, lime and hemp plastering, and natural wood floors. The décor is warm, neutral and very comfortable, and there is plenty of daylight.

The barn gite is ideal for those looking for a haven of peace and quiet, to be surrounded by the song of the birds (and the crickets in the summer months), and to observe the plentiful flora and fauna. There are walks from the front door
