Delightful Mountain Getaway
This little house and owners were so charming. It was nestled in the cute little town of Bun with many options for hiking and sightseeing. Marianne and Oliver were helpful and suggested several things for our family of 4 to enjoy. They were so thoughtful and attentive. On our last day, we even got a first hand view of the sheep migrating up to the mountains for the summer. It was such a pleasant stay. I highly recommend! The Pyrenees were amazing!
We were visited by a friendly family from the USA at the Sentantony Sheepfold. They have a very good level of the French language. They made the discovery of the high Pyrenees during their short stay. We told them the best places to visit in 4 days. Rebecca and her family have been respectful of the place and we would be happy to welcome them again. They advised us to visit the Colorado Mountains and Glacier Park in the USA. The Val d'Azun and the Sentantony Sheepfold are open for a new holiday in the French Pyrenees.
This gite is nestled in a perfect location in the Hautes-Pyrenees. It is close to everything you want to do. And there is a lot to do in this area. We were never more than an hour away from anything. It is also close to a great village with everything you need. Grocery store, shopping, butcher, baker and frommage shop. Marianne and Oliver were perfect hosts. They had maps available and restaurant recommendations for us. They spent time with us to help us orient ourselves to the area. (There is much to do here in the Pyrénées). The gite was spectacularly clean and well equipped. I would recommend the La Bergerie de Sentantony again and again!!! It was a PERFECT month in France!!!
We thank you for this positive opinion on the Bergerie of Sentantony, we are happy that you could enjoy your long stay in the Hautes-Pyrénées by staying at the cottage of the Bergerie of Sentantony. The Val d'Azun did not completely reveal all its secrets. You are a very friendly and dynamic couple of visitor who arrived from the USA, and we enjoyed your stay, for your discretion, your respect of places and our exchanges on our region. Note that Mr. likes to cook. It will be with great pleasure that we will welcome you to the Bergerie of Sentantony during one of your future travels in the Val d'Azun.
Beautiful position, very well appointed, comfortable and attractive property.
The property is a relatively new, purpose built gite with 2 spacious bedrooms which easily accommodate 4 adults with good storage in each room. The shower room is large incorporating a separate toilet. The mezzanine provided a quiet space to sit and read. The ground floor comprises a large sitting room, kitchen/diner and toilet. The sitting room has comfortable seating, a computer and television, plentiful local information and maps, books and games. The kitchen/diner was very well equipped with plenty of crockery and glassware and cutlery, etc. Residents have access to the garage for additional storage, eg, for boots, and an airer for washing. The garden was large, stocked with beautiful trees and a large patio area with outside seating, picnic table, parasol, barbecue, etc.
Marianne and Olivier were very welcoming and spent time introducing us to the property and the attractions of the area whilst taking into account our interests. The owners live in the adjacent property and were available if needed but were in no way intrusive.
We would very happily return to the property and the area and would have no hesitation in recommending it highly.
Great place to stay!
Had a lovely stay at The Mountain nature House. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Although the holiday cottage is attached to the owners house they respect your privacy and leave you alone. The house itself is very clean comfortable and well equipped. However, you do need to the your own towels. We forgot but the Marianne and Olivier kindly gave us some.
The house is also in a beautiful location with all tourists sights within easy reach.
The town of D'Argeles-Gazost is a lovely bustling town with a market, shops selling regional foods and a number of restaurants and cafes.
We had a wonderful few days at the cottage and really enjoyed what the area has to offer. Would definitely go back.
Absolutely gorgeous ...
The property and the owners are out of this world... It is furnished so beautifully and everything you could need is there ... They have thought of everything and although they are next door it was a beautiful and peaceful experience .... There is a gorgeous, lively town only a few miles down the road .... If you want to stay in this area I would highly recommend this fabulous place... And it is also so clean ...
10 out of 10
Perfect place for us - secluded and picturesque.
La Bergerie was a perfect place for us - quiet, secluded and picturesque. And easy to find in the village - to the church and up and up and up the hill. All cottages were well numbered.
The owner spoke enough English to be perfectly well understood. The booking and whole process both beforehand and while we were there was an excellent service.
The cottage was clean and beautifully furnished and finished.
And all necessary mod-cons and utensils were in place - from a teapot to toilet rolls.
Satellite TV had the expected BBC World, Sky News, CNN and some Eurosport in English.
There were board games and books available too. And DVD player.
Driving and navigating from Lourdes-Tarbes to Bun was easy - 45 minutes or so.
All our hiking routes were easy to find and park (for free).
One of the nearest petrol stations we found is in Argeles-Gazost, but that's only a 15 minute drive. (However, you will have to learn the wicked one way system.)
This was also the main Carrefour supermarket for big shopping.
Other smaller shops existed in Arrens-Massous, including bread/patisserie and charcuterie.
Plus a good tourist information office (although there was enough information for hiking maps/routes in the cottage to not necessarily require a visit here).
Driving the narrow roads through villages means being slow and careful - stick to the given speed limits because there is no need to rush.
Many thanks for a great stay.
