  • Beschreibung


    Hello, we are Georgina & Stephan, an international couple that spends the summers in our renovated Casa located in the foothills of the beautiful Pyrenees, between Toulouse and Tarbes. We are of Mexican and German origin but have lived and worked for many years in the USA and England. Georgina is a multidisciplinary entrepreneur, nature lover, coaching clients and has her passion project: a line of gourmet spices. Stephan worked over 25 years in Investment banking, loves reading books and his new interests are nutrition and history. We enjoy traveling, reuniting with our adult children, family and friends as much as possible (Hopefully this will be possible soon again). We also live and travel with our 2 companions "Galán" (German Shepherd -Labrador) rescued in USA and "Roco" (Golden Retriever - Border Collie) rescued in México, who, of course are also with us in France :).

    Georgina is a creative cook who incorporates flavors and ingredients from beautiful Mexico in fusion with the wonders in the local farmers market.
    This is a beautiful area in the Pyrenees where you can get away from it all, relax, take in good mountain air.
    It's great for hikers as there are streams, forests and wildlife to discover.
    Nistos Ski Station is a half day trip to enjoy the sunsets. Grottes de Gargas. Lourdes, the major Catholic pilgrimage site, is less than 1 hour away and sites like Gavarnie, Lac d'Oô.
    Also, a couple of stops of the Camino de Santiago, passes through the area.

    As the location is quite rural a means of transport might be helpful. But if you are lacking transport, we are more than happy to pick you up from the train station in Montréjeau or Saint Gaudens.
