Our beautiful gîte/retreat is located near the village of Aleu in the Couserans Pyrénées at 2500ft in a converted stone barn, renovated with ecological materials - thatch, oak, lime and hemp plaster and natural pigment limewash. The gîte is nestled in between meadows (full of orchids and other wild flowers) and deciduous forest (where deer and wild boar roam and we fill our baskets with wild mushrooms). There are the most incredible views to the frontier mountains, snow capped for much of the year. Susie and Lee your hosts, live 150m away, so are on hand if you require any help or information, but the gîte is situated away from other habitation and the road, so peace and tranquility are assured. Your only neighbours are our Ouessant sheep, song birds, woodpeckers, deer, owls etc. Garaging is provided for your car but access to the gîte is on foot down a track for 60m.
