An all-round fascinating family fun holiday - lots to do at the Gite and in the region for all ages

5 of 5
We arrived at Chateau de Lesparda and were immediately able to plunge into our swimming pool and relax in our comfortable pool house. We ate our meals at a large outdoor table by the pool and pool house with lighting; and were able to watch our teenagers playing games in the games room. The games room/barn is amazing and seeped in history - at one time it was the orangery for the Chateau. The Chateau has belonged to some historically renowned French families - who served as secretaries and musketeers to the royal family. 'Good King Henry IV' was born in Pau... Kevin and Nicky Jones were incredibly welcoming and no request was too much for them. The gite was private and yet sociable - an Italian family with teenagers were in residence at the other gite and we had drinks with them one evening. The bedrooms were clean and modernised. There was loads of space to dry our clothes - the washing machine was very efficient. The kitchen and dining room were fully equipped and videos left out for us to watch in the sitting room. Kevin left us out marked-up maps with directions to water parks, caves, shops, Pau, Biarritz, San Sebastián, Lourdes and St Jean de Luz. It is easy to drive into Spain or up to the ski resorts in the Pyrenees from Kevin and Nicky's Chateau. There is a boulangerie in their village, Gouze, and the croissants and bread are totally delicious from there. The Chateau and gite were easy to find as the motorway is not far. The local town at Orthez has all the shops, supermarkets, petrol stations, chemists and banks required on holiday. But we loved visiting the city of Pau as Lescar for its shops, history, views of the Pyrenees and restaurants. There is an airport at Pau as well as Biarritz and a train station. The train journey to Paris is 4 hours to Gare Montparnasse and you can rent a car from the train station - as well as the airports. Next time we return we want to visit the ski resort at Gourette. Gouze is 1 1/2 hours by car from Gourette. And we know that Kevin and Nicky will always be welcoming and accommodating. They have lived in France long enough to know how everything works and offer invaluable advice from schools, buying and selling in France to vineyards to visit. Our teenagers felt totally at home at our gite but equally there is enough to do for younger children with water slides, the pool and playhouses. We simply enjoyed sitting out over a drink and admiring the stunning landscaped gardens and views in peace.

A wonderful property with large pool

5 of 5
This was the second time we have stayed at Libellule, it really suits our needs perfectly. As we did last year, we teamed up with two other families and enjoyed this lovely home. We are all quite sporty so we enjoyed the table tennis table, the astro-turfed cricket net and even played a little football in the garden. We also ran in the countryside nearby. Most of the time we were busy enjoying the pool. It is a large pool (the pictures are a reality not a con!) and we swam and played in it very merrily, which, with 12 of us would not be possible in a smaller pool. The sunloungers can be moved into shady spots too, ideal for a snooze after lunch! When the children had had enough of swimming they enjoyed the wendy house and trampoline in the garden, and loved the brilliant dressing up box and well stocked Lego box too. Near the pool is a shaded seating area if the sun becomes too intense. We also made the most of the board games on offer, especially Monopoly. With this being our second time visiting the property we knew we did not need to pack lots of things to keep the children entertained - we normally end up taking things like Lego, dollies, Sylvanians and board games, but with this house you don't need to - its all there already! We also decided to leave the body boards at home and instead we borrowed the owners (for body boarding at Molliets beach), which made packing much easier. In summary I'd say that Libellule is roomy and spacious enough to manage large groups without you ending up feeling on top of each other, and it is a really well stocked and easy going home. It is ideal for families on their own or with friends.
