Finding Us


"It looked good in Chez Nous which is what brought us here. The description was understated"

Margaret & Tony, Carlisle


Maison Monique is in the village of Mauvezin, which is the Hautes Pyrenees department 65; (be sure to get the right one as there are six villages named Mauvezin all in southern France) and we are well served with nearby airports, trains, ferries and motorways.



By Air & Car

Toulouse airport is an hour and ten minutes to us: Easyjet, BritishAirways, Jet 2, KLM and Air France all fly into Toulouse from the UK and there are plenty of car hire companies to be found. When you leave the airport, follow the signs for Tarbes, Lourdes, St Sebastien, A64, it is well signposted. Once you are on the A64 exit at junction 15 which is the Capvern turn off; go through the peage, at the roundabout turn left, go straight on following the signs for Chateau de Mauvezin/Capvern and you will come to another small roundabout. Go straight on and this will take you through the village of Capvern and from there you simply continue straight until you reach Mauvezin. Go through the village and when you see the church go straight on towards the Chateau and Maison Monique is the third house on the left.

Nearly there...........

Pau Airport is an hour to us with ample car-hire facilities, but we recommend booking in advance (especially if you want a car with air conditioning, which we recommend in summer) Air France Paris/Pau, Transavia Amsterdam Schipol/Pau and again follow the signs for the A64 Direction Tarbes,Toulouse. Once on the A64 follow the directions above.

Tarbes/Lourdes airport to the west and a mere 25 minutes to us. You can fly with Air France direct from Paris or Ryan Air which flys direct from London Stansted, car hire available.


Other airports a bit further afield include Biarritz to the west, 2 hours away, Carcassonne to the east 2 hours away, some of our guests have even come to us from Barcelona which takes around 4 hours.

By Train

Our nearest train station is Capvern but the service is limited; other nearby stations include Tarbes, Lannemezan (closest to us) and Montrejeau which all have services to and from Toulouse.

By Sea and Car

Brittany Ferries offer two sailings a week from Plymouth to Santander in Spain and P&O also offer two sailings a week from Portsmouth to Bilbao. Distance from Santander is 420 kms and takes approx 3.5 hours, distance from Bilbao is 300kms and this journey takes approx 2.5 hour, 98% of which is motorway.
