Sauveterre de Bearn, France

Once an important stop-off on a trade route between France and Spain, Sauveterre de Bearn (often shortened simply to ‘Sauveterre’) is now simply a quiet medieval town that attracts a small but varied mix of tourists every year. Accommodation in the town is of a high standard, and can act as the perfect base from which to enjoy sightseeing trips, nature activities, historical attractions and day trips around the Pyrenees-Atlantiques department of south-western France.

Things to do in Sauveterre de Bearn, France

The heart of Sauveterre de Bearn has an idyllic charm to it, and many other old buildings can be found around its centre, including a 12th century defensive structure known as Monreal’s Tower. The 33 metre tall tower is unfortunately closed to the public though, unlike the 13th century Church of St Andre, which is just one of the town’s many architectural delights. More modern attractions can also be found here, including some fantastic restaurants that make the most of the excellent local produce.

Sauveterre de Bearn has an important historical building in the form of its 13th century church, l’Eglise St Andre. The view from the church is nothing short of spectacular – looking out over the river – and many a photograph has been taken from its vantage points of the surrounding countryside.

The surrounding region is lush and green, and covered in dense forest, rolling hills and winding rivers. These natural attractions makes outdoor activities particularly pleasurable, with salmon and trout fishing being one of the most popular choices with visitors and locals alike.

Places to visit on holiday in Sauveterre de Bearn, France

With Sauveterre de Bearn being a relatively rural countryside destination, many visitors like to make an effort to visit some of the busy spots along the coast during their stay. One such destination is St Jean de Luz (86km), which lies an hour’s drive to the west. St Jean de Luz has all of the attractions of the busier nearby tourist spot of Biarritz (78km), but also retains its traditional fishing port charm.

Weather in Sauveterre de Bearn, France

The weather in Sauveterre de Bearn is at its finest between May and September, when the sun shines on the majority of days and temperatures of around 25°C are common. Outside of this period tourist numbers dissipate as the temperature drops and rainfall levels increase, but those who visit outside of peak season will still find plenty to keep them entertained.

Travel to Sauveterre de Bearn, France

Pau Pyrenees Airport (PUF) is the closest airport to Sauveterre de Bearn, and is located 70km away. There are only two scheduled flights here from the UK though, namely Ryanair services from Bristol and London Stansted, so another option may be to consider flying to Biarritz Airport (BIQ), which is around the same distance away in the opposite direction.

And then there's the Pays Basques in the southwest near Spain. If you want to get away in beautiful country with rolling fields of sunflowers in the foothills of the Pyrenees, come here. And stay at this house. The property is exactly as advertised. Our kids played for hours in the yard, jumping in and out of the pool while we lounged close by. When we wanted an outing, there was plenty to do, from evening dinners at fabulous restaurants in nearby Salies de Bearn and Sauveterre to day trips into Biarritz and San Sebastian. We could have done more (the Pyrenees are only about an hour away), but everyone was so happy we'd stayed close to home, exploring nearby villages and even the river behind the house with pools that even little swimmers can enjoy. My husband and I traveled with our 8-year old son and rented the house together with friends who have a 5 and and 8-year old. There was really something for everyone, from the runners among us, to the loungers, readers, and swimmers. Property owners can make all the difference with places like this. Vincent, the owner, is perfectly attentive without being intrusive. The place is beautifully maintained. And Vincent's a wonderful resource - willing to share restaurant ideas, to where to spa or find local markets to stock up on croissants. This place is a real gem. Don't miss it.

The gite is well equipped and offers a good sized main bedroom, open plan living / dining / kitchen area and two single beds in the mezzanine level . A charming balcony above a stream provides a lovely area to sit and watch the evening sun go down. We enjoyed the complete peace and quiet offered and would be very happy to stay again .
