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.
Belle appartement situé entre des jolies villes de Biarritz et Bayonne. Une terrasse couverte et le parking sous terrain sont très pratique et agréable. Bien équipé et parfait pour les vacances dans la région. Assez près des grands magasins, Le Clerc etc. On peut aussi voyager à San Sebastián en Espagne, seulement cinquante minutes sur autoroute et cité très interessant.
Just ten minutes from Biarritz airport (but no noise at all), we’ve just spent ten days exploring this area of France. The apartment is perfectly situated for this and was ideal for us. It was equipped to a high standard and spotlessly clean. Everything you could want for a short stay - dish washer, washing machine etc. Safe, easily accessed, underground parking.
We really enjoyed exploring the lovely area and drove over the border into Spain to San Sebastián which took under an hour on the toll roads. Well worth a visit. We also liked Bayonne , St Jean de Luz and BAB2 (a brilliant new shopping centre about five minutes away). Le Clerc is two minutes away by car and there is a Lidl just down the next road - a ten minute walk. We usually stay in the country side in France, but really enjoyed being in the centre of things this time. Oh, and there’s a bread and cake shop just over the road! What more could you want? Would stay again.
