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.

It is ideally situated and an easy drive to destinations such as Pau, Biarritz, Spain, and the Basque country, and there are local supermarkets and restaurants a short drive (less than 10 minutes) away. The house is large enough to sleep more, but the two of us appreciated the space, furnishings, and facilities. We enjoy food shopping at markets and there is at least one every day of the week in this area. Cooking back home is easy and if an appliance or implement isn’t available in the kitchen, the owners next door will happily share theirs. The bedroom was comfortable and all rooms are well-lit with the shutters open and snug in winter, cool in summer with the shutters closed at night. The main bathroom was large and we appreciated having a real bath/shower, as many rented accommodations only have a tiny shower. There is internet access, but the signal is week. We never had a problem though, and it was much nicer to while away our evenings playing some of the many available board games and watching seasonal DVDs on the flat screen TV. There are lots of things to do here for children, including games, a pool, the extensive grounds, and even feeding the chickens and goats. We used the fireplace every night, but for summer visitors, the river-view terrace will be equally appreciated. The sound of the river, the hooting of the owls, and the starry skies drew us outdoors regardless of the weather. Our hosts, Ian and Bernadette were very accommodating while never being intrusive. They were available if we needed them, but otherwise we had the place to ourselves. They brought us brochures of activities and events in the area, provided us with extras for our stay, invited us for Christmas drinks and canapés, and provided pleasant conversation. I would highly recommend this property for many reasons and would certainly return when visiting this area again.
