Les Glycines is a stone farm house on 3500m2 in the L-shaped
architectural style prevalent in this region. It has been renovated
and contains all the modern amenities. Details and floorplan are on
our web site.

The house has a gated courtyard bounded by the house/barn on two
sides, a small dependence opposite and the connecting walls. The
living quarters, about 120 m2 are on the ground floor and are
accessed by an entrance in the middle. To one side are the
sitting/dining room and the kitchen. On the other side are two
bedrooms. In the middle, is the entrance hall and, behind it, the
bathroom with bath/shower and washing machine and the separate WC.
The kitchen is equipped with all the necessities: dishes, cutlery,
cookware, toaster, coffee maker, tea kettle, microwave oven, gas
cooker, dishwasher and linens.

Burg is a primarily agricultural village of about 250 people. It is
located in the foothills of the Pyrenees at an altitude of 350
meters. It is a quiet location that makes a good starting point for
tours in the beautiful Pyrenees.



The kitchen has all appliances (DW, frig/freezer, microwave, coffee
maker, toaster, kettle, iron, dishware and cutlery). Living has
70cm TV, DVD/CD/MP3 player, home entertainment amplifier (4 speaker
surround sound), satellite TV (UK channels), antenna TV (French
channels). Bathroom has bath/shower, washing machine. Separate
WC. DSL WIFI is included.



The main attraction are the beautiful Pyrenees where you can hike,
bike, rock-climb, canoe, etc. Tennis and golf are in nearby (12km)
Lannemezan. The historic cities of Pau and Lourdes are about an
hour's drive. If you manage to be at Lourdes during one of the
pilgrimages, the experience can be moving. The region has limestone
plateaus where caves developed. Many of these caves provided shelter
for the prehistoric inhabitants of the area. The caves at Gargas
with many wall-paintings is one of a number of interesting such
sites in the immediate area that are open for visits. The many
castles, abbeys and monasteries include the nearby church and former
monastery of St Bernard de Comminges which has been beautifully
restored. The town is listed as one of the prettiest in France. For
breathtaking views of the entire Pyrenees chain , take the cable car
to the summit of the Pic Du Midi (2877m). We suggest a number of
drives with optional hikes through the beautiful mountains. There
will inevitably be festivals in various area towns in the summer
that are interesting and fun.



Rates vary by period: Low (May, Oct) 250GBP/wk, Medium (June, Sept) 290GBP/wk. High (July, Aug) 350GBP/wk. No problem accepting other currencies. Payment method varies by renters country of origin.
