Comfortable & high quality well equipped family home in countryside yet within 10mins of local town

5 of 5
Welcomed by friendly owner to show us around this super home in rural peace and quiet. House very comfy & well equipped with lots of space and modern fittings, immaculately clean and very well furnished too for a large group. Modern kitchen, table tennis table and WiFi all added to the home from home feeling. Large garden wrapped around property offered sun/shade as required but the modern,clean pool remained in sunshine. Location great for visits to river Bearne for paddling/swimming at Sauverre,two local restaurants of note in Salies, as well as day trips to Pau (cyclists will know) and San Sebastián or best of all St.Jean de Luc for a day on superb beach in sheltered bay. And bonus-delight of 'Spa' (we used the family facilities to swim)in local town too-super value for 9euros for an hour that we recommend as suitable for all. Great house,great location = excellent holiday. Thanks.

Stunning House Outside Quaint French Country Village in Southwest France

5 of 5
Sure there's Nice, Cannes, Provence and all the name brand places in the south of France. And then there's the Pays Basques in the southwest near Spain. If you want to get away in beautiful country with rolling fields of sunflowers in the foothills of the Pyrenees, come here. And stay at this house. The property is exactly as advertised. Our kids played for hours in the yard, jumping in and out of the pool while we lounged close by. When we wanted an outing, there was plenty to do, from evening dinners at fabulous restaurants in nearby Salies de Bearn and Sauveterre to day trips into Biarritz and San Sebastian. We could have done more (the Pyrenees are only about an hour away), but everyone was so happy we'd stayed close to home, exploring nearby villages and even the river behind the house with pools that even little swimmers can enjoy. My husband and I traveled with our 8-year old son and rented the house together with friends who have a 5 and and 8-year old. There was really something for everyone, from the runners among us, to the loungers, readers, and swimmers. Property owners can make all the difference with places like this. Vincent, the owner, is perfectly attentive without being intrusive. The place is beautifully maintained. And Vincent's a wonderful resource - willing to share restaurant ideas, to where to spa or find local markets to stock up on croissants. This place is a real gem. Don't miss it.
