Le Domaine de Loustalviel:

Two 19th century farmhouses and a barn, beautifully restored, in a rural setting. They share a large swimming pool set in six acres of gardens and grounds, with spectacular views of the Pyrenees

LoustalViel (“the old house” in the local patois) was the principal house of the Domaine which carries its name. It now has a new roof and we have entirely remodelled the inside to maintain as many local features as possible, but with space and convenience undreamt of when it was built 140 years ago.

It is a big house, with spacious accommodation and all the facilities for eight people to enjoy real comfort, and to savour the glorious views over the large, shared pool, the 7 acres of the Domaine, and the surrounding hills towards the Pyrenees on the southern horizon.

For more information about LoustalViel, and about LoustalBeau and LoustalNeuf (the other two 4-person houses on the Domaine), please visit our website at, or email us at
