A special place…

Chateau de Géry lies on a rock outcrop in a small hamlet, in the foothills of the beautiful Pyrenees, close to the border with Spain. It overlooks a lake and the River Garonne, with views towards the Pic du Gar beyond.

 

The house has been recently renovated to a high standard. It’s a unique spot and a comfortable home, now available for holiday rental. The chateau is the perfect base to enjoy this wonderful part of France, whether guests seek adrenalin sports, more gentle pursuits, or simply to relax and unwind.

 

Each of its three reception rooms and five bedrooms enjoys breathtaking views. The house can sleep up to nine people.

 

Géry is a small hamlet just 2-3kms from Saint Béat and about twenty minutes drive from the spa (and skiing) town of Luchon. There are good plane, train and road connections too.

 

Explore…

At the southernmost tip of Haute Garonne, the area was known by the Romans as Passus Lupi (wolf’s pass) and was an important route through the mountains into Spain.

 

Saint Béat, the nearest village, was famed for its marble, which is still mined locally. There are plenty of places to visit and a mind-boggling range of activities to take part in.

 

Options range from historical places such as Saint Bertrand de Comminges or the prehistoric caves at Gargas, to various treatments at local natural spas. For the more active, there are plenty of designated walking/rambling routes of varying degrees of difficulty.

 

Sports range from skiing, paragliding, trout fishing, rafting, canyoning, cycling (the Tour de France often passes nearby), horse riding, potholing, gliding etc etc. You’ll find a list of some non-ski activities here ...

Pamper yourself …

.. in a comfortable, large sitting room with squishy, chocolate brown leather sofas, large open fireplace and carved wood surround, satellite TV, DVD library and music (iPod connection). Prepare sumptuous meals in the well equipped modern kitchen.

 

Dine formally in the huge dining room with table and chairs for 12 people or in the warm evenings, go al fresco on the terrace. Sit at the bridge which joins the house to the West Garden, chilled glass of wine in hand and watch the weather, the red squirrels or the amazing birds of prey soaring nearby.

 

At night, sleep soundly in comfortable, mostly antique beds, dressed with duck feather pillows and duvet in Egyptian cotton linen. Refresh or relax in the beautiful, spacious bathrooms. Yes, it’s a hard life! More about the house and facilities here ...
