A wonderful very old, rustic, characterful house

4 of 5
We booked this especially for the house old character as a base for walking in the Haute Pyrenees and it was as we had anticipated. It is exactly as described - rustic, full of antiques but very well equipped. The house has very good facilities for 6 adults, and plenty of good kitchenware to make cooking and family meals a pleasure. Although the bathroom décor is worn/rustic and extra care should be taken not spill water due to their age, the showers are good and facilities adequate. The beds appeared to have comfortable new mattresses. 4 of our family were young people between 18 and 22yrs old and they loved it too - and they got good phone/data roaming reception. The village of Borce is equally quaint with mainly interesting medieval buildings along very narrow paths and steps between them. There were two festivals in the village square (virtually outside the house) while we were there which we were welcome to join in the music and dancing if we had wished. The bar in the village a few steps away provided fresh bread every morning and essential food and toiletry products if you had forgotten something. The area is perfect as a walking base into the mountains and footpaths around as well as enjoying many local attractions particularly the zoo and water sports. We would recommend a stay here if you are looking for something a bit rustic and quirky, but well equipped.

A blissful Pyrenean retreat

5 of 5
This is a really magical place nestled in a Pyrenean valley less than 2 hours away from Biarritz or Pau. The house is full of character and charm with a roaring fire and many cosy bedrooms to choose from. An atmosphere inside that makes you feel instantly at home and gardens and land to explore outside that will keep you in walks for days . A spectrum of beautiful environmnents all on the estate - from shady woodland streams to wild meadows. The spectacular view of the mountains so close by from the kitchen window will stay with me for ever I am sure . The owner Andrew stays discretely in a barn across the garden. He is there to advise on local knowledge and walks should you feel inclined.We so enjoyed his company that we ended up socialising on several nights. But equally Andrew will keep himself totally separate from you and he is very respectful of your privacy as he goes about his farm chores. The main house for guests is completely secluded with its own garden not overlooked - and a wonderful venue for breakfasts or supper al fresco watching the sun go down. The downstairs bedroom has doors leading out to the garden which in turn face a dramatic mountain scenery. It makes getting up a joy. It was just myself and partner in this lovely old house but we will come back with our wider family and friends without doubt. In fact we were looking to buy a small home in the area but on discovering this wonderful house and spot have decided to just come back here instead. Would suit a family with young ish active children as there is so much of the natural world to discover here and the most perfect of playgrounds. There is even a trampoline in the middle of an adjacent field which went down very well with us even in our fifties, coupled with the daily evening table tennis. Aside from the comfort of the house, the breathtaking views you will also be overwhelmed with the warmth of Felix and his sister Marcel in the local general store which can feed you for several days if you cant be bothered to head for the supermarkets a few miles away. We were here in September (late) and enjoyed very warm fine days with just one day of rain. I am already scheming a return visit to this place that so feels like home.
