Thank you Sandra and family for such a wonderful stay. We loved the gite: a charming rural home, providing both relaxation and fun throughout the 2 weeks that we stayed. Everything you need is there - comfortable bedrooms and a good-sized living room/kitchen. The garden is beautiful and complete with the pool use, ping pong tables and swings. We spent the evenings barbeque-ing and bat spotting with a glass of local wine in hand. The location is superb as it is nestled deep in the countryside, away from the hustle and bustle of a city. However, 2 big supermarkets, a great boulangerie (check out the macarons), and restaurants are just a 10 minute drive away in Peyrehorade. The local lake is a 20 minute walk through country lanes and there is a restaurant and snack bar there too.
One of the chief attractions for us was the easy access to the Atlantic beaches with endless enormous rollers and great surfing. The mountains offered a truly stunning cave visit at 'grottes de Betharram', a trip on le petit train de la Rhune and white-water rafting.
Finally, our kids loved 'Base de Pop' - extreme sport water slides, inflatables and a zip wire.
Thank you so much Sandra and family for your warm welcome, top tips for beaches and days out and all round friendly hosting. We are refreshed and happy from the holiday and will certainly be returning.
We were delighted with and impressed by this modern Basque house. The well fitted kitchen / living area contributed to a very relaxed week. Bedrooms, bathroom and ample storage space upstairs were beautifully decorated. We enjoyed our aperitifs on the terrace. Brigitte and her husband were a charming couple who made us feel very welcome were very helpful throughout our stay. Its peaceful location at the end of the access road to this part of the countryside meant the only noise we heard was the mooing of cows. This was an excellent location tour from which to tour the Pays Basque region. St Jean de Luz, Biarritz, Bayonne, St Jean Pied de Port are all within easy reach. If you want to explore this area you couldn't do any better.
