There is a large shared guests’ lounge where your group can gather together. It has a cosy log-burner and large 5m projection screen where you can watch films in cinema-style surround-sound.

Fantastic walks start from our garden, with a good selection of self-guided routes available. A village bistro and wine cave are within a 15 minute walk and the famous spa town of Vernet les Bains is less than 2 miles away, with a wider selection of shops, activities and restaurants. A local boulangerie delivers fresh bread and croissants to your door each morning.

This picturesque area is steeped in culture and history. Many of France’s most beautiful villages, such as Eus and Villefranche de Conflent, are located within a short drive. It is a walker’s paradise with a huge range of other sports, spas and activities also available nearby.
