"La Petite Tapovan" sits high above our property, with huge views across the valley, and down towards the village and beyond to Mont Valier, in the Pyrenees. Secluded and private, it is the perfect spot for a quiet break for twosomes, amongst nature, in contemporary accommodation. Not for the feint hearted, there is a steep path to climb through woodland, but it will be worth the effort!

The space

For couples, "La Petite Tapovan" is approached from our driveway where you can leave your car, and then walk up a winding track. (We will help with your luggage if necessary.) You pass behind the house to enter the kitchen, dining and living room area, which has solid oak, parquet flooring. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a dining table and two chairs. The sitting area is provided with a sofa and coffee table, and there is a wood burning stove. A wooden, spiral staircase leads up to the bedroom, again with solid oak parquet flooring, and cotton rugs. There is a double bed (140 x 200), storage and an area with rocking chairs to sit and admire the views. The staircase descends from the living area to the bathroom and utility area which has underfloor heating. There is a washing machine and cupboard with hanging space and additional storage space in the utility room. The bathroom has a w.c., shower, wash hand basin and double-ended bath (for 2!). Outside, there is a wooden terrace along the front and one side of the house, and a flat, grassed area, all of which are available for guests' sole use.

Guest access

Below La Petite Tapovan, our house and Gite Tapovan, the garden contains a swimming pool which is available for shared use, under certain "rules". The sauna, next to our house, can also be used.

Interaction with guests

We live in the main house (attached to which is Gite Tapovan) and are in residence. We are happy to be of assistance, should you need it, but we keep a low profile to respect your privacy.

Other things to note

The approach to "La Petite Tapovan" is up a steep 100m pathway, with a climb through woodland. (As mentioned, we can help with transporting luggage.)
Similarly, the staircase in the house is steep and twisting, and one section is a little narrow.
We have two cats and are unable to accept animals in the guest accommodation.
The property is also a no smoking zone.

This loft/cabin/tiny home is just what you want it to be. Just a 30 minute walk into town and restaurants, but complete with everything you need to have complete privacy your entire stay. Beautiful views of the mountains in every direction. Extremely well appointed and recently completely renovated. Highly recommend!!
