Overview
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Pouy, Hautes-Pyrenees, Occitanie
Nestled in a secluded valley in this beautiful and unspoilt part of the French Pyrenees, Le Gite Blanc is just the spot if you're looking for somewhere peaceful to unwind, as well as a base from which to explore the mountains, visit the shrine at Lourdes, or experience the vibrant city of Toulouse.

About the neighbourhood
The Magnoacs is an area is renowned all over the world for its cuisine, wine and, of course, armagnac and the local markets are havens for food lovers. Local breads, cheeses and duck are all specialities.

Lovers of nature will see majestic birds of prey hanging over the fields, a myriad of colourful insects, and grazing deer; the lucky ones might catch a glimpse of wild boar.

If you want to read, paint or just relax, Le Gite Blanc provides the perfect environment. It is also an ideal base for more active pastimes and if you want to walk, run or cycle there are endless lanes and tracks, while the mountains provide scope for more serious sport including hillwalking, trekking, white water rafting and, in the winter, skiing and snowboarding.
