A balcony on the Pyrenees ! On the shores of Lake Payolle, this 40 m 2 duplex gite with terrace offers panoramic views of the lake and the Arbizon massif. We have renovated it carefully, with quality materials.

At 1140 m above sea level, at the foot of the Col d 'Aspin, Lake Payolle is an exceptional site in the Pyrenees, dedicated to pastoralism and outdoor activities, in all seasons.
Our cottage, located high up, will allow you to enjoy it in peace.
