About Bea White
Since moving to Sainte-Colombe in 2012, Bea and Derek have been busy renovating the house, various parts of the grounds and gardens and installing the solar-heated pool which everyone enjoys. They have also renovated Le Grenier, the adjoining annex and following requests by guests to rent both properties as a whole, we are making both of these available for summer bookings, this retaining exclusivity for guests. We will still be onsite at Pyron and spending summers in Le Four, a rustic renovated studio cottage.
Bea White purchased this House in 2012
Why Bea White chose Sainte-Colombe
We love the peace and quiet of the countryside, local walks, the rolling hills of the Chalosse, the Pyrenees, Atlantic Coast and Spain (San Sebastian is only 2 hours by car) plus the local French food and wine. We have been warmly welcomed into the local community and hear about some great places to explore from our neighbours and friends, many of which we can share with you.
What makes this House unique
Le Grenier at Pyron is a characterful property retaining its original wooden beams and benefiting from complete renovation. The property has a well-equipped kitchen, leading into the garden for alfresco dining. A solar-heated in-ground pool is located next to a large barn for table tennis, table football and darts surrounded by spacious grounds with mature trees. Hammocks in the garden are enjoyed and loved. Many people love the peace and quiet of the area and the property; it is perfect place to recharge your batteries. It also provides the opportunity to explore further afield into Spain, the Pyrenees and the Atlantic Coast. Speaking both French and English we can help out with translating, booking trips, suggesting places to visit, etc...

Notre séjour a été agréable au grenier, idéal autant pour les petits que les grands. Les propriétaires sont discrets et agréables, tout est prévu et bien entretenu pour passer un moment qui plaît à tout le monde. Je recommande vivement cet endroit à tout ceux qui cherchent à se ressourcer. Encore merci à Bea et Derek!
Une semaine magnifique a Sainte Colombe
Une semaine de vacances magnifique passée au grenier de la maison Pyron. Béa et Derek sont des hôtes charmants, tres discrets mais toujours disponibles au besoin. Le grenier correspond parfaitement aux photos, climatisé et au calme. Le jardin et la piscine chauffée sont très appréciables à toute heure de la journée.
Situé au cœur des Landes, nous avons passé une semaine de vacances au calme, tout en profitant des spécialités gastronomiques proposées par de nombreux producteurs à proximité et des fêtes estivales organisées dans les villages aux alentours.
Merci à Béa et Derek, nous gardons un excellent souvenir de nos vacances à la maison Pyron.
Merci Mathieu. Nous sommes heureux que vous ayez passé de très bonnes vacances ici et que vous ayez profité des spécialités de la région. Bon retour à tous !

Le Grenier is located just outside the pretty village of Sainte-Colombe. With Hagetmau or Saint Sever within easy driving distance all the local amenities, supermarkets, shops, markets, restaurants and cinemas are close-by. A visit to the Saturday market at Mont-de-Marsan is a must for its amazing range of local produce, including seafood and oysters, hams, cheeses and breads as well as fruit and vegetables. Michel Guerard's Michelin-rated restaurant serves delicious food in Eugenie-les-Bains. You’ll also find patissiers and chocolatiers in most local towns.
Hagetmau boasts its own Olympic-sized pool with water slide, jacuzzi, outside terraces and golf course at la Cité Verte. You can play tennis in Sainte-Colombe and there are plenty of walks nearby taking in the spectacular views of the Pyrenées on a sunny day. You'll find lakeside beaches with swimming at St Pierre-du-Mont (30 minutes drive) or within an hour at Arjuzanx; also Lac d'Agès for walks and Lacs d'Halco at Hagetmau with pedalos and lakeside walks.
The main Pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela passes through Hagetmau and Saint Sever and you can explore the Romanesque buildings in Saint-Sever, including the Abbey, Cloisters and the Convent of the Jacobins. Chateau d’Amou is well worth a visit, as is Le Chateau de Morlanne and Chateau Gaujacq, all within a 30-minute drive. The historic Chateau at Pau is also worth a visit.
Capbreton on the Atlantic coast is only 1 hours 10 minutes by car and both Contis Plage and St Jean-de-Luz are 1.5 hours away offering amazing coastline, beaches and surfing. You can tour the Corniche, an amazing stretch of coastline before Spain. Venture further into Spain and visit San Sebastian to sample its internationally recognised cuisine and Spanish culture.
Further inland you can explore the many amazing villages and towns dotted along the Pyrenees, all providing opportunities to experience Basque food, customs and architecture. Bird watchers may be rewarded by the sight of vultures, eagles and ravens even in the foothills. St Jean-Pied-de-Port, Gourette and Gavarnie are all well worth visiting.
Dax is the leading Spa Resort in France with 'Hyperthermal Water' and 'Peloide Mud' treatments, well-visited and respected by people from all over France. You can also try the Calecio spa in St Paul's for a real treat with pool, sauna etc...
Local towns hold their own annual summer fêtes/festivals and many have their own arena for the tradition of the course landaise, an ancient sport of cow-jumping, which involves no harm to the cows. Other events worth seeing are the night markets in Aire sur l’Adour and St Sever in August; the Jazz Festival at Marciac in early August and racing events at Pau and Nogaro.
For nature lovers, you will find buzzards, kites, butterflies, roe deer, frogs and in the height of summer, crickets, grass-hoppers and cicadas.
Le Grenier is close to four international airports: Pau Airport is 50 minutes drive; Biarritz and Lourdes are both 1.5 hours drive and Bordeaux is 2 hours drive.
