Guestbook comments from the owner

We wanted to thank you for a wonderful stay at your house, "Le Ruisseau", in Salies de Bearn. This was our first visit to the south west of France and we all thought it was so beautiful. The house was well furnished and very clean - our children used the bedrooms and bathroom at ground level and we were were happy with the master bedroom and luxury bathroom upstairs. Most of our meals were taken on the outside deck, overlooking the pool and gardens - beautiful weather so we made good use of the pool which is a good size so we were able to really swim and not just "play around".

We made a couple of trips to the coast to visit Biarritz and St.Jean de Luz - both very attractive towns with good beaches and only about 45 minutes drive. Found some really nice restaurants in Salies including the one you had told us about overlooking the local golf course. There's a lot to do and see in the area, but we were more than happy to chill out at the house most of the time.

The English speaking couple managing the house on your behalf popped by to see that we had settled in and were comfortable. They had left a "welcome pack" of food basics for our arrival which was very appreciated . Thank you for making the booking process so easy and the helpful information you sent before our arrival. The children have not stopped talking about their holiday since we've returned home!

Thank you once again - Carolyn and Patrick

Charming holiday home with Great pool

  • 5 of 5

We felt totally at home as soon as we walked through the front door! The children claimed their bedrooms on the groud floor and we headed up stairs Sto our wonderful master suite. The house provided everything needed for a comfortable stay with very tasteful decor! Most meals were "al fredco" on the spacious wooden deck, overlooking the pool and gardens. We all very much appreciated the peaceful location and easy access to the facilities of the town centre. Many great meals at the local restaurants. Lots to do locally and also easy access to mountains & sea. We are all already planning our return....

Owner's Response: I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed your recent holiday..........the pool is larger than average and is suitable for "real" swimming as well as just splashing about and cooling off. The wooden deck is a popular place to relax (as well as dining "al fresco") with pretty views of the surrounding countryside .The environment remains peaceful as the property is located on a quiet lane (no though road) but the town centre can be easily reached either on foot or by car. I look forward to helping you plan your next holiday!

Wonderful house and pool in great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed the recent stay at "Le Ruisseau"........such a peaceful location yet close to the facilities of local town. Comfortable house set in large garden with good swimming pool. Lots to do in the local area and the coast and mountains are also easy to reach.

Un "ruisseau" remarquable

  • 5 of 5

Nous tenons à recommander vivement cette adresse. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié notre séjour au Ruisseau ainsi que l’accueil d’Elaine, la maîtresse des lieux. Cette résidence est située dans un endroit très calme, à l’abri de toute pollution visuelle ou sonore, mais à proximité immédiate de Salies ( environ 20mn à pied du centre ville) ce qui permet aussi de profiter aisément du charme de cette bourgade. Il y a beaucoup de promenades à découvrir dans les alentours pour les amoureux de la nature mais il est aussi très agréable de lézarder sur place. Nous y sommes allés fin mars et nous avons pu -compte tenu du temps exceptionnellement chaud - profiter, les enfants et moi, de la piscine. L’intérieur de la maison est très spacieux, très clair et très commode. Ce fut un bon moment de détente pour évacuer le stress !

Wonderful holiday -we'll be returning soon!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at "Le Ruisseau" in Salies de Bearn. Our family stayed for one week in summer 2010 and we came again last summer - this time for 2 weeks. The house is located along a quiet lane and surrounded by pretty countryside but it's an easy walk to the centre of town although we usually took our car. During our first visit of one week we mostly stayed at the house as the children enjoyed their private swimming pool so much-we decided to come for an extra week last year so that we could combine some sightseeing with the enjoyment of being at the house. We were all very pleased with the choice as we had sufficient time to visit the coast - St.Jean de Luz and Biarritz reached within one hour via the motorway. We hired kayaks on the river at Sauveterre de Bearn (10 minutes by car), took a cablecar ride at Cauterets in the nearby Pyrénées and still had sufficient time to make the most of everything the house has to offer.

The layout meets our requirements really well as my husband and I stayed upstairs in the parental suite where there is a superkingsize bed , really comfortable in a light and spacious bedroom overlooking the gardens and pool. The adjoining batrhroom is very big with more than enough room for us to both get ready at the same time. The children used the 3 bedrooms on the ground floor and had their own bathroom. The house is clean and tastefully decorated and furnished - we really felt at home there. Most of our meals were taken outside on the wooden deck that is almost an extension of the front room. We never tired of sitting there looking at the beautiful countryside - it was so peaceful and it was also handy to be able to keep an eye on the children in the pool as the deck overlooks the gardens and pool area.

There's a good choice of restaurants in Salies - a couple of our favourites are "Hotel du Golf" overlooking a swimming pool and the golf course and "La Belle Auberge" in Castagnede, about 10 minutes by car.

We have really fallen in love with this pârt of France, so much so that we are currently planning our dates for another visit to "Le Ruisseau" this summer!

Ideally located along a quiet country lane leading to wonderful walks, yet within walking distance to golf course and town centre. Salies de Bearn is equal distance from Biarritz and Pau (both about 45 minutes by car). The town has a beautifully preserved historical centre and is well known for it's thermal spa where various beneficial treatments are available. The Basque and Landes beaches are easily reached along the motorway (about 45 minutes) and St.Sebastian,in Spain,is only one hour away.Spectacular mountain scenery of the Pyrénées about 45 minutes... Visit Lourdes, lakes and alpine trails... Local markets every day and excellent restaurants close by.

Other Activities: Thermal spa
