A week at La Chênaie is always the best moment of the year for me .
First , because the entire property is absolutely stunning. We know that the owners spent a lot of time and worked extremely hard to get this result. And like it wasn’t enough... every year there is something new!! The appex of my joy was when a discovered the big chess game next to the pool..
Second, It is extremly well looked after. The rooms, the pool, the tennis court and the garden are immaculate.
Third, the surroundings... it is very hard to get bored of the french countryside, the food, the people,etc.
Last but not least, the view... no need to comment that!!
There is not a shadow of a doubt la chenaie is the best cure against stress, routine or boredom.
We had an extremely relaxing two weeks at this farm house. The bedding was clean and fresh and there was plenty of space for our family of five.
The pool was fabulous and our 6 year old son particularly loved it - the pool is deep but once he got his confidence, he was trying to dive in the deep end! The walks locally were fab but you have to be a fan of steep hills! We also enjoyed the use of the pool table.
The farmhouse is rustic with typically Bearnaise features. The outdoor areas were great for relaxing with a glass of wine... or two of an evening.
Our son made friends with Mittens (later known as ChitChat) the cat who liked to come and say hello... especially at meal times!! The wildlife - deer and a range of birds, in particular birds of prey, were in abundance. The views of the Pyranees are quite something.
The farmhouse is away from it all but it is worth trying the local auberges. Excellent food at great prices. We also visited Chateau de Morlanne, Arthez, Orthez and Pau which were very nice.
The hosts were great, nothing was too much trouble - Phil had a bit of an accident and the rest of the family came together to make sure we were ok in his absence! We hope you have a speedy recovery. Thank you for making our stay comfortable and easy.
