Property with spectacular views between ocean and the mountains

4 of 5
Excellent property, well equipped and spacious. Private, not overlooked. Good base for exploring the Atlantic coast of South West France and Northern Spain and for walking in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Car essential.

Very pretty property, lovely owners

5 of 5
We stayed for 3 nights. The room was lovely, clean with a modern (private) shower room and a kitchenette shared with the other room. Breakfast was served on the terrace (inside if the weather requires). The owners George and Isabelle are friendly and able to advise about the area.
