Wow, what a view! Oh and comfortable gite in old barn with modern interior too.

  • 5 of 5

Remote location in a quiet mountainous environment 5 minutes from ventas where you can get everything you need and only 15 minutes from all activities in historic St Jean Pied de Port. Despite the heatwave we enjoyed daily short walks and went over the col into Spain. We always enjoyed coming back to the gite despite the tortuous/exciting access road! The large balcony was so relaxing in the shade although there was plenty of room for sunbathing in cooler weather. We spent every evening watching the hawks soaring and other birds in the woods below. The owners were very kind, providing a fan to keep us cool, and they are knowledgeable about the area with walking guide books provided.

Belle location au calme

  • 4 of 5

Jolie bergerie simplement et confortablement aménagée dans un beau coin de verdure.

Le propriétaire est aimable et son âne Boubou s’entend bien avec les enfants (Surtout ceux qui l’approvisionnent en châtaignes et bonbons !)

Ensuite on est à côté de l’Espagne, pas loin de la mer...

Muy buen lugar para desconectar

  • 4 of 5

En medio de la montaña aparece la casa de Zill y Verónique, un poquito más atrás, el granero arreglado impecablemente. Nos encontramos con lo mismo que ya habíamos visto en el video, todo precioso, todo impecable, cuidado hasta el más mínimo detalle. La cocina no le faltaba nada, como en las habitaciones y el baño.

Para los que nos gusta el café, hay Melitta, comprad el café molido.

El acceso no es fàcil, carretera estrechita y subida notoria, la pendiente es pronunciada, pero es una recta, con una curva de 180 grados en pendiente también que debe tomarse con cuidado, porque si no, no giras de una sola vez. Pero merece mucho la pena el trayecto!

Merci Zill et Verónique pour votre attention, incommensurable!!!!!!!!!!
