We were absolutely delighted with our stay. The Gite was superb, Joelle and Pierre Claude were fantastic hosts.
All 4 of us were very surprised when we were invited to try some of the local Juracon wine and local specialities on the first night and local attractions explained. Everything was provided from teaspoons to a private pool. If you want to visit Pau and drive over the Cols in the Pyrenees this is the place to go to. Only a few hours drive from Bilbao. Perfect in every way!
We rented this home in Ogeu les Bains for a week in January. We were six people in all: two grandparents, two parents and two children. The house is spacious and well-equipped, with good central heating and plenty of room for three generations. The patio looks out to the Pyrenees mountains and the Winter sunshine was warm enough for lunch outside. There are plenty of books and games etc. to suit most ages and tastes. There is also table tennis in the 'garage'.
There are good walks from the old part of the village and a ski station not too far away. The local shop caters for most needs and there is a bakery there too. Olorons is the nearest town and has numerous shops and restaurants. Pau is not too far away and the roads are good - even in midwinter.
All-in-all, an excellent place for a family holiday.
