We can’t wait to welcome you.

Chez Montagnes is a rural retreat in the foothills of the Pyrenees, a place to take a break away from it all. The villa has every modern luxury your heart desires yet the exposed stone walls and wooden ceiling beams remind you of its history and charm. It is located in the secluded hamlet of L’Escale, steeped in history, as the  French Resistance operated here during World War 2. For the history buffs, a blog will be forthcoming!

The villa is set over 4 floors, lower ground or basement which is at true ground level, ground floor, first floor and the loft, you can find out more about our maison interiors below.
