The accommodation had lovely old, broad floor boards and had been appropriately equipped with all the practicalities we needed. The outlook was charming from the entrance balcony looking out across village gardens. Mirella and Christian were very thoughtful and engaged hosts and told us lots about the locality as well as providing very good walking information. Not to mention local sheep's cheese and honey in the village. The Ossau valley has easy car access and is wonderfully varied, from the lower hills to the very tops. Can't recommend it too highly if you want rural quiet with easy access to glorious countryside from a homely base.

Very tastefully decorated, extremely comfortable with all the equipment you would ever need plus a very warm welcome from hosts Monique and Francois. Thank you for making our stay such a happy one.
