Little has changed over the years in this haven of tranquility and fun. Our village is home to one of the very few traditional clog makers where the unique hand-made Bethmale clogs are painstakingly carved by Pascal Jusot. A visit to his workshop is highly recommended. The Bethmale singers and dancers resplendent in their local costumes, an example of which is displayed on the upper landing, support timeless tradition of culture and music, much of which is presented in the glorious venues of century old mountain churches. Champagne air and the easy going pace of rural life sit happily with contemporary standards of comfort and informality and conspire to create a special magic for that perfect stop-over.

Anthea and Oliver following years of international travel and commerce covering spells in the USA, the middle and Far East and almost every country in Europe as retirement aproached they searched for and found the perfect haven in the Pyrenees. Journalism and International Recruitment are now forgotten, against the joys of family, friends and of course the unforgettable scenery. As experts in the effects of stress in the modern world the house has been structured to provide all things to all people. Chat is seldom absent particularly over family meals with guests, however quiet time and the privacy for guests to pursue their own objectives however active or placid they may be is primary to our thinking.We really enjoy people coming to stay with us and have made some firm friends.
