Gite La Colline comfortably sleeps 5 and is the largest of three luxury gites forming part of Barès, a traditional farmhouse in the beautiful Haute Garonne département in the Midi-Pyrénées. Completely self-contained, the gite has ancient beams, wood-burning stove, its own private garden and terrace and stunning views of the Pyrenees, shared use of the luxury 10 X 5m swimming pool and 1.5 hectares of grounds. Only 50 mins from Toulouse, an hour to the Pyrenees and 75 mins to the nearest skiing.
Fully equipped with two double bedrooms (one with patio doors onto the private terrace) and a single bed on the mezzanine above the beautiful beamed sitting room, the gite has wi-fi, satellite TV with French, English and most major European language TV stations, DVD player and selection of DVDs, its own terrace and garden within the beautiful grounds of Barès. The sitting room is the oldest part of Barès, containing the fireplace and bread oven of the original farmhouse kitchen. In Winter the wood burning stove brings the fireplace to life and creates a wonderful Winter hideaway.
The beds 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 and dishwasher, 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 or picnic by the pool.
Barès really is in the heart of the countryside, so you will need a car. The pretty market town of L'Isle en Dodon is a scenic 12 kilometer drive and has a large supermarket, shops, cafes and a Saturday morning market.
