La Maison de Bernadette
Organic plant based bed and breakfast
Set in the heart of the beautiful French Pyrenees in the rural village of Artalens, we are just 10 minutes drive from Argeles-Gazost.
La Maison de Bernadette is a recently renovated traditional Bigourdane house with amazing views of the surrounding mountains.
With a large organic permaculture garden, offering peace, quiet & wildlife, it's the perfect place to relax and unwind.
We have three double bedrooms in the main house, each with its own en-suite with a shower, sink and eco composting toilet.
We supply organic cotton towels and cruelty free organic soaps.
Bedrooms number 1 and 3 can be made into twin rooms.
The double beds are made up with organic, fair-trade cotton sheets and have locally made wool blankets.
The rooms are cleaned daily for your comfort and we offer a fresh change of towels and bedding for stays of more than 5 days.
On the large handmade Basque dining table, passed down from Dan's Grandfather, you will have plenty of room to sit and comfortably eat your plant based organic buffet breakfast while staying in the main house.
On the cold mornings we will light our wood burnering stove.
All meals are very sociable and are shared with us and the fellow guests.
The lounge gives a welcome place to sit and relax in a group, or to read a book by yourself.
We have a large book selection and an honesty bar makes a welcome refreshing drink after a long day in the mountains.
To make sure you have the most peaceful stay possible we do not have a TV.
The house has locally sourced wooden flooring throughout, so don’t forget to bring your slippers!
From the lounge you can access the terrace and the large garden.
Dotted between the vegetables and edible flowers you can wind your way through to hidden seating areas and sunspots to pass your time taking in the beautiful mountain views.
There are decked areas for yoga, meditation and sun lounging.
The garden is also home to our free ranging ducks and our cat Captain Bob.
We have house plants in every room; and keep the wild flowers outside for the local wildlife.
During your stay Dan can take you out on day activities including hiking, snowshoeing and rock climbing.
We also have dates throughout the year for fully catered hiking and sightseeing holiday packages.
