André is a really lovely host, very helpful and warm, a delight.
The building was originally a grand hotel in the last part of the 19 and early 20 centuries and the apartment reflects this, high ceilings and spaciousness giving it character. An interesting feature is that one window in the large kitchen/ dining room looks over a small street, an impasse, enjoyable to see a bit of street life, people enjoying a meal at the restaurant situated there.
Pau is a lovely town, I would describe it as sophisticated but with a friendly atmosphere; as the main attraction is the Château, there are relatively few tourists, it is definitely a town which has not been spoilt.
A free little bus that goes on a circular route stops outside the large church of Ste Martin two minutes away, goes to ‘ les Halles’, the indoor market, a good place to buy local produce, excellent cheese, goats and ‘fromage de brebis’ from ewes. Also Bayonne ham a good buy.
Trains from Pau station go to interesting places, Bayonne, OleronSte Marie, Lourdes.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will be returning in October.
This cottage is the best kept secret as it is in the middle of know where surrounded by mountains and countryside. However do not let that put you off! The space in the cottage has been well utilised and there is ample space for 4-5 people with all luxury fittings. The property also boasts a large balcony which is perfect in the evenings to enjoy a beer or glass of wine whilst enjoying the silence of the country side. This was one of the best properties I’ve ever stayed in and the hosts Severine & Laurent are a wonderful couple who are very welcoming & friendly. The cottage is local to Pau which has some good shopping, good food along with some night life. If I found myself in this area again then I would definaltey book this cottage again!
