The accommodation had lovely old, broad floor boards and had been appropriately equipped with all the practicalities we needed. The outlook was charming from the entrance balcony looking out across village gardens. Mirella and Christian were very thoughtful and engaged hosts and told us lots about the locality as well as providing very good walking information. Not to mention local sheep's cheese and honey in the village. The Ossau valley has easy car access and is wonderfully varied, from the lower hills to the very tops. Can't recommend it too highly if you want rural quiet with easy access to glorious countryside from a homely base.

Our hosts (non-English speakers) were kind, generous and warm, and the apartment was comfortable. The setting is beautful and quiet, apart from the cowbells clunking all round us, with easy access to good walks and to the neighbouring small towns and villages. We would just advise overseas visitors to be prepared for all weathers: we had grey skies and rain rather than the hot sun we had hoped for, though we were told that this was unusual for late August. A very nice place. Merci pour tous, M & Mme Lafond.
