Overview

About the property

The largest of three luxurious, self-contained traditional farmhouse gites

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.

About Gites De Bares (Gerry and Jenny)

We are Jenny and Gerry Czerniawski and we are excited to be the new owners of this beautiful traditional farmhouse. This is a very special part of France and for us it was love at first sight when we first saw this house, its wonderful land and its stunning views of the surrounding countryside and mountains. It is the perfect place to escape from our busy jobs in London. If you come here and we are not around there will always be someone here to welcome you and to make sure everything is ready for your stay. We welcome guests of all nationalities and between us we speak French, German, a little Italian, a little Spanish and even a little Korean.

What makes this apartment unique

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!

Set in the midst of beautiful countryside

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday and very much enjoyed our stay. The gite was very clean and there was a useful welcome pack when we arrived. The garden is quite private. The views are amazing with rolling countryside all around. The pool is of a high standard again with amazing views all around. There are plenty of inflatables to use in the pool. There is plenty to do and we enjoyed playing badminton, table tennis and the odd game of darts. The kitchen was a little small when cooking for 4 people but we managed and always ate outside anyway. Jenny and Gerry were very helpful and responsive when we had a few questions.

Super holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Bares. The location was lovely with glorious views of the Pyrenees most days!! The new swimming pool is great and sitting by it had wonderful sunflowers all around. The gite itself was extremely well fitted out with everything you could need. We spent most of our time sitting outside on our private patio. I can only say I would recommend it to anyone wanting to explore that part of France.

There was an excellent restaurant nearby at Riolas and also in L'isle en Dodon.

A supermarket was also handy in L'isle en Dodon too.

Il faut vraiment vouloir arriver à Bares, superbe cor de ferme, un lieu repoussant, pas un bruit, une vue sur les Pyrénées enneigés génial et un logement très bien équipée. Rien à redire, de très bon contact avec les propriétaires même s il habitent au delà de la manche....Lieu que je recommande à tout ceux qui aime la nature, et le calme
