It is within easy reach of several small towns with good shopping facilities, while the larger cities of Tarbes and Pau are within 45 minutes (both with airports), and the major centres of Bordeaux and Toulouse are about 2 hours away, making the property well situated for those who need easy access to and from the UK and ideal for visiting friends and family.
