Why Dennis Reynolds chose Masseube
It is on flat land only minutes away from a small town with all amenities. It is quiet and private but not remote. The whole house has undergone modernisation and renovation, completed in 2012. The pace of life is very pleasant with no overcrowding or queues. The whole area is a gastronomic delight, the speciality being duck (confit and magret de canard) and duck and geese livers (foie gras). Armagnac is a popular tipple and the local wines are called Madiran.

Further afield the Pyrenees offer a wide range of activity depending on the season. Our favourite is Loudenvielle (75 minutes) with spa and lake activities, but there are many more.
Lourdes, the centre of pilgramage, is 75 minutes away and Pau, an historical city, just beyond. The coast at Biarritz can be reached in 2 hours.
