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.
We can honestly say this was one of our best holidays ever and we have been spending two weeks in France for the last 25 years, so that is a good recommendation in itself!
The house is well-appointed and comfortable and our host Sebastien was attentive but not at all intrusive. The location was beautiful - sheep with their tinkling bells passing by daily, breath-taking scenery and clear, bright colours of the sky and countryside. Everyone we met was kind and welcoming and we had happy days in St. Jean de Luz, Pau and Spain in particular. The local wine and cheese were excellent.
All in all, the fortnight was so relaxing and happy that it was hard to leave. Thank you so much, Sebastien!
