The Story of La Fenière

La Fenière was converted in 1958 from an old hay and cattle barn into a maison secondaire. John Howie bought the property in 1989 and with his family has run the property as a hill walking, climbing, cycling, paragliding, and skiing base for the last 30 years. During this time the house has undergone several major renovations and is today a modern, comfortable all season Lodge accommodating 10 guests in its 5 bedrooms.

The Vallée du Lys is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, flanked by birch forest and with the river Lys flowing just 200 metres away this is the perfect place to relax and unwind. A sunny south facing terrace looks onto the imposing 3000m peaks of the French / Spanish frontier.
