We were a party of 10 (6 adults and 4 kids). The villa had everything we needed from pool toys to pots and pans etc. The pool was just to die for as was the view. Loads of outside space for us all to enjoy whether that be on the terrace or down by the pool. There was also lots of room inside for us to sit together. The village of Briscous is sleepy but had everything we needed except a bar but that did not bother us. We didn't visit the restaurant but we did get takeaway pizzas from the bakery and they were great. Marie-Elodie greeted us and and made check in very pleasant. All in all this is a great villa and we had a thoroughly good time. Thank you!
Thank you Sandra and family for such a wonderful stay. We loved the gite: a charming rural home, providing both relaxation and fun throughout the 2 weeks that we stayed. Everything you need is there - comfortable bedrooms and a good-sized living room/kitchen. The garden is beautiful and complete with the pool use, ping pong tables and swings. We spent the evenings barbeque-ing and bat spotting with a glass of local wine in hand. The location is superb as it is nestled deep in the countryside, away from the hustle and bustle of a city. However, 2 big supermarkets, a great boulangerie (check out the macarons), and restaurants are just a 10 minute drive away in Peyrehorade. The local lake is a 20 minute walk through country lanes and there is a restaurant and snack bar there too.
One of the chief attractions for us was the easy access to the Atlantic beaches with endless enormous rollers and great surfing. The mountains offered a truly stunning cave visit at 'grottes de Betharram', a trip on le petit train de la Rhune and white-water rafting.
Finally, our kids loved 'Base de Pop' - extreme sport water slides, inflatables and a zip wire.
Thank you so much Sandra and family for your warm welcome, top tips for beaches and days out and all round friendly hosting. We are refreshed and happy from the holiday and will certainly be returning.
