Overview

About the property

L'Alouette is the smallest and most secluded of three luxurious, self-contained apartments which form part of Barès, a traditional farmhouse in the heart of the Haute-Garonne département in the Midi-Pyrenees, South West France. Fully equipped and sleeping two people comfortably with one double bedroom, leading off the sitting room, the apartment has wi-fi, satellite TV with French, English and most major European language TV stations, DVD player and selection of DVDs, its own private terrace and garden within the beautiful grounds of Barès. The sitting room contains a wood burning stove which creates a wonderful Winter hideaway. The bed will be made up ready for your arrival and there will be plenty of towels. In the kitchen you'll find all the essentials such as tea, coffee, sugar, salt and pepper as well as fresh bread, croissants, milk, butter, jam, ham, cheese and a bottle of wine. With a gas hob, microwave oven, fridge, pots and pans, crockery and glassware, you'll have everything you need to cook up a feast, although for Summer breaks you might prefer to use the barbecue provided on the terrace.

Guest Access

In addition to this fabulous apartment with its own front door, terrace and garden area, guests have full access to the hectare and a half of grounds, the swimming pool and games barn. A brand new luxury 10 metre X 5 metre swimming pool will open in Spring 2016. There is plenty of parking space.

You will always receive a warm welcome. If we are not at Barès during your stay, our friends who live nearby will be there to show you around and make sure you have everything you need. You will have their number as well as ours just in case of any problems during your stay.

At Barès you will find yourself in the heart of a stunningly beautiful, rural, farming community, unspoilt by tourism. It is a 10 minute drive to the pretty market town of L'Isle-en-Dodon where the nearest shops can be found, including a large well-stocked supermarket and a vibrant Saturday market. For a taste of the local cuisine and culture, head to Chez Jeanne La Fermière on Sunday lunchtime, or to Le Comptoir after the Saturday market in L'Isle-en-Dodon. For nightlife we recommend stargazing whilst listening to the frogs and nightingales in Spring and the crickets in Summer!

Barès is a 50 minute drive from Toulouse airport, or 1.5 hours from Carcassonne. This is fantastic walking, cycling, motorcycling and driving country. Just over an hour's drive from the Pyrenees and the nearest ski resort, Bagnères de Luchon and Super Bagnères. There's so much to see including the observatory on top of the Pic du Midi, or why not explore Cathar country including Monsegur, Rennes le Chateau and the medieval city of Carcassonne. Or spend a day in the vibrant 'Cité rose' Toulouse. Of course you could just relax and unwind at Barès enjoying the quiet, the pool and the view.

About Gites De Bares (Gerry and Jenny)

Hello!

We're Jenny and Gerry Czerniawski and we're excited to be the new owners of beautiful Barès. This is a very special part of France and for us, it was love at first sight in Summer 2014 when we first saw the house and the amazing view. It's the perfect place to escape from our busy jobs in London and we're looking forward to spending more and more time here. If you come to Barès when we're not here, there will always be someone here to welcome you, to make sure everything is ready for your stay and to help if there's anything you need whilst you're here. We welcome guests of all nationalities and between us we speak French, German, a little Italian, a little Spanish and even a little Korean. We invite you to come and discover the magic of Barès for yourself!

Peaceful, quiet, 'away from it all'

  • 5 of 5

Delighted with our stay in cosy rustic gite with original wooden beams throughout and fabulous view of countryside. Very comfortable bed, fully equipped kitchen and shower room, fireplace with plenty of wood logs plus French & English TV with videos provided. Enjoyed eating outdoors on our patio and listening to a myriad of bird songs. Fabulous brand new swimming pool to relax in the sun sitting on lounge chairs. The gite is part of a beautiful original farm house with landscaped gardens full of flowers in the spring and summer and is surrounded by cultivated fields and spectacular views of Pyrenees. Spent time visiting surrounding area; quaint villages, lakes, markets and vide-greniers. Many excellent restaurants including 'Chez Jeanne La Fermiere' just five minutes away serving authentic French country food and not forgetting the Foie Gras! Nearest shopping about 15mins away in L'Isle-en-Dodon. Welcomed on arrival by supplies for breakfast including freshly baked croissant delivered on our first morning and a bottle of wine for the evening. The management could not do enough to make our stay perfect. Will be coming back for sure as its a guarantee of peace, quiet, natural surroundings and great food!

A secluded trio of Gites with superb views

  • 4 of 5

We found the Gites at Barege secluded but not isolated. Alouette, the smallest of the trio is a charming, cosy hideaway suited to a couple. The facilities are all in good order and the wood burning stove provides ample heating. Although it was rather cool during our stay completion of the new pool should make this an almost perfect location for a relaxing holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to produce this review and lovely to hear from you both. The new pool has been completed and is beautifully landscaped to blend in with the surrounding countryside. March can always be a little bit of a gamble with the weather but Spring is now truly flourishing with summer juist round the corner. We wish you both the best and look forward to seeing you again one day.

Un cadre idéal pour un repos total

  • 4 of 5

Un cadre idyllique qui permet de décompresser en toute tranquillité.

L'Allouette est idéal pour 2 personnes avec sa terrasse privative et une vue imprenable sur les champs qui entourent le gîte.

La piscine est un plus.

Nous avons passé 2 semaines très sympathiques.
