The Surroundings

For lovers of beautiful countryside, good food, fine wine and a more relaxed pace of life, Le Prielle offers an ideal holiday location.

Le Prielle is situated in the heart of the Madiran wine growing area of the Haute Pyrenees in the South West of France.

Surrounded by vineyards, the property is on the borders of the Gers, Pyrenees Atlantique and Haute Pyrenees in the heart of Gascony and close to the Pyrenees mountains and the beaches of the Cote d’Argent.

The accommodation comprises four beautifully restored Gites which have been created from renovated barns, in the grounds of an old Chateau, dating from 1745.
