A Puntos is an absolutely fantastic traditional Gascon farmhouse with amazing mountain views, private heated pool and wood fired pizza oven all set within beautifully landscaped gardens. Set on the edge of the sleepy hamlet of Mont de Marrast in the Gers, A Puntos is a traditional French farmhouse which retains many of it's original features including oak beams and floorboards, floor tiles and fireplaces. The property is accessed by a long, private driveway and set in 2.5 acres of gardens. Facing due south and set high on a ridge, both the house and the swimming pool bask in daylong sunshine and command fabulous, uninterrupted views to the Pyrenees. There is exclusive use of 10 x 5 metre pool, with Roman steps, ideally set for the fabulous views and relaxing in the sun.

Set on the edge of the sleepy hamlet of Mont de Marrast in the Gers, A Puntos is a traditional French farmhouse which retains many of it's original features including oak beams and floorboards, floor tiles and fireplaces. The property is accessed by a long, private driveway and set in 2.5 acres of gardens. Facing due south and set high on a ridge, both the house and the swimming pool bask in daylong sunshine and command fabulous, uninterrupted views to the Pyrenees. There is exclusive use of 10 x 5 metre pool, with Roman steps, ideally set for the fabulous views and relaxing in the sun. The pool is surrounded by a paved area with 8 sun loungers and there is also a shaded pergola with rattan seating and a table to cool off or have a drink. Pool heating has been installed, as with a pool alarm and there is a thermal blanket to keep the pool warm at night. Because of the lack of light pollution, this is also a favourite spot for stargazing after nightfall. A Puntos also has a covered terrace with seating for 8 which is accessed by French doors from the kitchen. It is raised above the garden, shaded by a beautiful walnut tree and has views toward the mountains. This is perfect for a sunny breakfast or a more shaded lunch or dinner with friends and family. The kitchen has a traditional large french table with seating for 8 and is equipped to a high standard with Rayburn Wood Stove, separate oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher and large washing machine. There is also a herb garden, a wood fired pizza oven with preparation area alongside a large Webber Barbecue. The lounge has a Bose Sound dock and 45 inch smart Panasonic TV, British Freesat, DVD player and a large log burner. The internet has enough bandwidth to easily stream UHD films on Netflix or Amazon Prime. There is also a large selection of books, DVDs and games available which includes an outdoor Petanque set. There are 4 comfortable, spacious and well equipped bedrooms (1 king, 2 doubles and a twin) along with a bathroom on each floor, one of which has a large walk in shower room. Come and enjoy the local food, wine and relaxing atmosphere of A Puntos where you can enjoy lazy days and nights with friends and family either on the terrace, around the pool or just anywhere in the large and beautiful landscaped gardens.

We stayed here as two couples, though the property could cope with more. The farmhouse has original features (staircase, floor upstairs, beams), but has been tastefully modernised. The kitchen is well-appointed (large table, oven, hob, DW, WM, fridge/freezer, microwave). It leads onto a terrace where...More

Wonderful location. The owners live next door with their lovely dog! Expect a visit from Mirren, dog, if you have a bbq! Having breakfast looking out to the Pyrenees is sheer joy. Will go back

About the neighbourhood
The house is only 20 minutes drive from the town of Marciac which hosts the world famous jazz festival in July/August and similarly situated from Mirande, where a similarly famous Country and Western festival draws large crowds annually. The Tour de France takes place every June/July in France and will most definitely pass through a town nearby and, with its enormous circus atmosphere, is most definitely a 'must see'. Pau, the gentle university town with historic links to Briton, amazing château and unique architecture should not be missed. and Toulouse, France's second city, is also a bustling university town with great shopping and numerous bars and restaurants. The Spanish border is only two hours drive away, their ski slopes are wonderful and back in the local towns, there will be ...
How to get there
Lourdes airport is 35- 45 minutes away and flights are from Stansted - Bordeaux , Toulouse and Biarritz airports are about 1.5-2hrs away. Direct flights to Toulouse or Carcassonne flights available for Scottish People. It is a roughly an 10-11 hour drive from the Channel.
