The house is just outside Uzer, a small village (department 65) in the foothills of the High Pyrenees mountains, our house is newly renovated with comfortable accommodation.

Uzer is about 40 minutes from the largest French Pyrenees Ski Station Le Mongie/Bareges, which will be closed but is worth a visit as it has the iconic "Col de Tourmalet", which is included in the Tour de France each year. It's a spectacular part of the High Pyrenees with the Pic du Midi accessible by Telecabin all year round. 

Uzer to Tarbes or Lourdes is about 30 minutes. Bagneres de Bigorre is our nearest town (10 mins) with all the shops and supermarkets. There is a very good market on Saturday mornings and a Market Hall, which is open some weekdays.

The house is just outside the village of Uzer. The house has two parts: the main house, lounge, TV room, kitchen, bedrooms, utility room and garage. The TV Room connects to the "Gites" (your part and is called "Gites" but it's only used for friends and family), which has one double bedroom, one bedroom with 2 single beds and a bathroom. French TV and Chromecast. WiFi etc. Uzer is in a beautiful part of France called Les Baronnies, in the foothills of the Pyrenees yet close enough to some large towns and several airports!

We have a very friendly but timid cat and a 4-year-old Golden Retriever (She loves everybody). She has a real sense of humour and is great company. We also have a docile horse with his pony friend and although some experience with horses is better, the pony's owner will come if needed. The fields where they graze are around the property and your main job is to see that the water (in bathtubs) is always available. Putting them in their stable if the weather is bad (rare at that time of the year).  Riding is not included!

There are several neighbours who will be around if needed. Apart from feeding and walking the dog, feeding the cat and checking the horses, we want the house just looked after. There is a kitchen garden if that interests you. Around us, there are plenty of things to do and some magnificent walks, several famous grottos and the Pic du Midi to visit. We hope you take advantage of your stay here.

Travel from the UK? We suggest flights from London Stansted Ryanair to Lourdes which is about 30 minutes from the house or to Toulouse (1.5hrs) with Ryan Air or Easyjet. 

The nearest shops are in Bagneres de Bigorre (10 minutes by car)

To see where the village is situated on Google maps search for Uzer France (there are 2 Uzers)

If you are interested please contact us asap and we can chat by or Facetime (Apple)

We are in the country but 10 minutes from Bagneres de Bigorre. This is a large house with excellent accommodation.  The house has two parts (connected) and the "Gites" has two double bedrooms so you can even come as a small family! French TV and Chromecast. WiFi etc. We are in a beautiful part of France called Les Baronnies, in the foothills of the Pyrenees yet close enough to large towns and airports!

We had a great time in the Pyrenees and can recommend a stay very much!

The house is setteled at the edge of a small village with a great view on the mountains. The surroundings are perfect for hiking. Inside it's tidy, clean and you will find everything you need. It's just lovely.

The animals are also just perfect. The dog needs to be cuddeld a lot!

Henry and Anne-Marie are very nice. We enjoyed talking and appreciate the hospitality!
