THE SWIMMING POOL & SPA
Salt Water Swimming Pool & Spa (call for info if the Pool and Spa are open and cost of Spa per week). The 12 by 6 meter swimming pool is designed with children in mind and has a shallow area of 1 meter running for approximately 4 meters, a panic ledge of 1 meter deep runs around the entire interior of the pool and the shallow end shelves gently towards the center of the pool. The pool is fitted with an electric floating semi-rigid cover controlled by a key and out of reach of children; this is believed to be a safer option than alarms and fencing. The pool house includes sun loungers, a hot and cold shower and changing area. (Pool house kitchen, bar and barbecue are for the owners' use unless by prior arrangement). Guests have shared use of the pool until 1800 hours, including all pool side facilities but use of pool can be extended by mutual agreement as we are flexible unless we ourselves have dinner guests etc.
There's a range animals including chickens and ducks, one horse, two pygmy goats, two cats and our Labrador girl Charlie. Therefore, it is not always possible to accept pets except by prior arrangement, also there is a possibility that horses can be liveried, but again only by prior arrangement.
THE GOOD LIFE
When it is too hot, the cool of the games room is inviting.
Children and adults alike can hone their badminton or other sporting skills. Or take off on the bicycles and explore the forests, rivers and lakes nearby, for the more adventurous - cycle the Route des Vins of the Madiran.
