Delightful cottage in lovely village and setting at Lourdios Ichere (Not Issor but close)

4 of 5
We were made immediately welcome by owner Michel who gave us a quick tour of everything and some background to the cottage. It is very well set out and everything clean and bright. It is situated adjacent to a babbling stream, with trout and birds to watch. Our only initial problem was that as Australian visitors we do not carry bed linen with us, but Michel quickly organised that. We also found the bright street lights strange, but good shutters fix that issue at night and it is a heavenly peaceful place. The village is gorgeous, very pretty and friendly, tucked into a fold of the mountains, and extremely interesting. If you get a chance, go visit the Ecomusee up the road 800 metres from the cottage. There you can hear how this village came into being in a very different way from many other older established settlements, and also about the rise of women shepherds in the region. There are many good walks to be found, and good shopping a bit of a drive away - there are no shops in the village. The nearest big town is Oloron Ste Marie, which has a great market and some friendly cafes and eateries, along with beautiful old architecture and the river. In the opposite direction at Accus, not far away from Lourdios, you can go and shop, then watch hang gliders coming down a mountain while enjoying a good meal (along with the resident cat). The black currant tart was to die for. All up a great place to stay, I would recommend it to anyone.

Great stay in a great village

5 of 5
I had a pleasant stay here in September 2016! Also very clear communication with the owner (first through mail, on the day of arrival by phone). I arrived at around 10pm and was welcomed by the friendly parents of the owner. I spent 14 days in the appartment (which is more a house really, only the groundfloor is a small grocery store, the entrance of the property is on the first floor - access by stairs on the outside of the house). I wanted to explore the Pyrenees by bicycle and on running shoes. The location is situated near the square of Laruns, with everything a walk away (2 bakeries, 2 butchers, a supermarket, restaurant, grocery store, tabac store,...). The property was clean, the kitchen was well equipped. I didn't miss anything but I have to admit I'm not the fanciest cook. The internet connection was fast! No frustrations there. It's also a cosy livingroom, comfortable seats. Exactly as what the listing shows. The bathroom was ok, a large bath. No problems filling it with hot water! Since I stayed there alone it wasn't a problem putting my bike in the entrance, but it's probably not ideal if there are more bicycles to store during the night - although it would be possible to put them next to the fireplace in the living room. Laruns itself is ideally located if you want to do outdoor activities. I enjoyed every day of it!
