                                                                                                      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!

Also plenty of walking too Great hosts who welcomed us warmly. A definite recommendation to others...just don't go when we might want to go! well appointed gite, very comfortable with plenty of space. Great bed and bathroom facilities. Couldn't fault our stay.

We already knew the area but you never know whether the house is going to be what you expect. Well, the house is beautiful and full of character but still very well equipped for family living. The garden is spacious and the pool was much appreciated in the heat and all is very well maintained. Pierre and Maddy were very helpful and friendly, I am French though so there was no communication issue. Escou is a tiny village, very quiet and you will have to take the car to go and buy bread in Ogeu or go to the market. The village is well located though for Oloron, Pau and the Vallee d'Aspe and Vallee d'Ossau. There are tons of activities to do in the area whatever your age/interests. We had a lovely week in Escou and on very hot days did not mind not leaving the house at all as it is so nice.
