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.

Très beau gîte lumineux avec une vue juste magnifique.Il ne manquait rien, nous avons même pu profiter du barbecue malgré notre séjour hivernal. La région est très agréable et les propriétaires très sympathiques et de bon conseil. Yvon nous avait chauffé le gite pour notre arrivée et le bois est tout prêt et gratuit durant tout le séjour.Nous pensons revenir au printemps ou en automne afin de découvrir encore plus ce beau Pays Basque.Un petit bonjour aux chats et bien sur à Boubou.

Sehr schöne Unterkunft im Baskenland an der spanischen Grenze!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 7 Übernachtungen in Arneguy in der Nähe des spanischen Dorf Valcarlos gebucht. Sehr schöne Unterkunft in freier Natur mitten in den Bergen.

Von hier kann man schöne Wanderungen und Ausflüge ins Baskenland unternehmen. Wir waren unter anderem in San Sebastian und Biarritz. Im Haus war alles vorhanden, viel Platz und schöne Sitzmöglichkeiten auch außerhalb des Hauses. Vielen Dank an Yvon und Véronique für den schönen Aufenthalt!
