The house is large, extremely clean, well maintained (loved the ensuite bathrooms) and had been recently refurbished which catered perfectly for our large group. We spent a lot of our days relaxing around the magnificent pool, sampling good French wine and enjoying the great bbq facilities for both lunch and dinners. Pau is nearest large city, which is about 25 mins by car and we spent some time visiting the shops and local restaurants. We used the house as a great base for visiting the Pyrenees, Bordeaux and also San Sebastian in Spain. Some of our group enjoyed a game of golf at Pau Golf Club. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here as there is plenty to do nearby. We will definitely be back sometime in the future.

It is ideally situated and an easy drive to destinations such as Pau, Biarritz, Spain, and the Basque country, and there are local supermarkets and restaurants a short drive (less than 10 minutes) away. The house is large enough to sleep more, but the two of us appreciated the space, furnishings, and facilities. We enjoy food shopping at markets and there is at least one every day of the week in this area. Cooking back home is easy and if an appliance or implement isn’t available in the kitchen, the owners next door will happily share theirs. The bedroom was comfortable and all rooms are well-lit with the shutters open and snug in winter, cool in summer with the shutters closed at night. The main bathroom was large and we appreciated having a real bath/shower, as many rented accommodations only have a tiny shower. There is internet access, but the signal is week. We never had a problem though, and it was much nicer to while away our evenings playing some of the many available board games and watching seasonal DVDs on the flat screen TV. There are lots of things to do here for children, including games, a pool, the extensive grounds, and even feeding the chickens and goats. We used the fireplace every night, but for summer visitors, the river-view terrace will be equally appreciated. The sound of the river, the hooting of the owls, and the starry skies drew us outdoors regardless of the weather. Our hosts, Ian and Bernadette were very accommodating while never being intrusive. They were available if we needed them, but otherwise we had the place to ourselves. They brought us brochures of activities and events in the area, provided us with extras for our stay, invited us for Christmas drinks and canapés, and provided pleasant conversation. I would highly recommend this property for many reasons and would certainly return when visiting this area again.
