'Events and Country Markets' There are usually a variety of events ongoing (Jazz, Salsa, Country & Western and Wine Festivals, Horse Trails, Motor Racing, Bull Fighting, Cultural Events), especially in the summer. There are markets in the area on all days except Sunday and Mondays, selling local and artisan produce. We are in the region of duck in all its culinary versions, foie gras, magret, cuisses confites…. In the summer this region has a great variety of events. 'Festivals' Enjoy the Country and Western in Mirande, the Tempo Latino festival in Vic-Fezensac in late July, or the well-known Jazz festival in Marciac the first half of August and many more local events.
What makes this Cottage unique
The house as you can see from the pictures is built in the "maison bourgeois" style and one has a view of the Pyrenees Mountains from the garden. The property lies in the valley with breathtaking views of the High Pyrenees Mountain range to the South, only 1.5 hours by car to the center of the mountains with its variety of wildlife, walks and skiing or a visit to the Spanish city of San Sebastian just over 2 hours away to enjoy a day out by the sea and take in the street culture and Tapaz Bars, or Biarritz on the French border to Spain 20 minutes to the north of San Sebastian. . The possibilities are endless. This area is criss-crossed with pathways, tracks and chemins, giving access to fields, vineyards, streams, rivers, lakes, woods and forests. With plenty of wildlife you can often come across deer, boar, local coypu (a large river rodent similar to an otter), plenty of different bird varieties (this area is on one of the major migration routes). Whether you explore by car, foot or bicycle, play golf (nearby Golf Courses), fishing, microlite, enjoy a variety or restaurants - the prospects of enjoyment are limitless. The region offers a host of possibilities only limited by your imagination. Sports of many varieties exist including fishing and salmon fishing, tennis, golf, shooting club, hunting, mountain biking, walking, canoeing, horse riding, microlite etc. We have a fully equipped games room with a full size indoor badminton court and an international size croquet lawn, trampoline with safety netting. A selection of bicycles of different sizes including a tandem.
