The property

Set on the crest of à Pyrenean foothill with views all around, explore our 30 acres of pasture and forest.  The land stretches away below the pool and has been planted (around 50 years ago) with superb walnut and chestnut trees, spend time discovering our three family-family colour-coded walks, pack a picnic and hike down to 'The Glade'.

What our guests say ...

Breathtaking location, awesome property, wonderful hosts!!

 

Many thanks again Susan & Doug (and Rolo of course) for helping to make our special trip all the more special with your outstanding hospitality & thoughtful touches alongside an absolutely perfect location & setting for just what we needed. Your fabulous home & the the surrounding stunningly beautiful countryside location have been the perfect combination for our stay.

 

With the beautiful villages of Puzac, Bagneres de Bigorre & Argeles Gazost nearby, there is no shortage of activities, excursions or simply breathtaking drives to enjoy & take in the magnificent views. The small village of Ossun ez Angles has a character all of its own set up on the hillside, and with over 30 surrounding acres there is no shortage of forest walks & woodland to explore.

 

The facilities at Les Hauts Paturages are outstanding, with everything thoughtfully taken care of...from cotbeds, changing mat & stair-gate, to coffee makers, microwave, ironing facilities - everything is in place for you to arrive & immediately relax into the peaceful surroundings & beautiful sounds of nature all around you. The facilities outside are equally impressive, from the pool with beds, numerous sporting options including football & table tennis, swings & see-saws (not just for the children..), and especially the fire pit for taking in the unbelievable views (and Doug's musical skills) with a glass or two of red.

 

We'll be back to the region each year from now on & can't think of anywhere else we would rather stay....we still need more time in the pool & to take up the 5-course dinner & our girls are already missing Rolo! We can't recommend this special place highly enough....the property, the location & the hosts.
