FARMHOUSE VILLA IDEAL FOR FAMILIES

Salies de Bearn Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom farmhouse villa to sleep 8 close to beach and mountains

The villa is 5mins from the Medieval Cite of Sauveterre de Béarn, which has all your local amenities and a lovely little tea house located on the banks of the river with spectacular views to the Pyrénées.

We are also 5 min. away from the Pay Basque region of France with their unique culture, architecture and food. Enjoy lunch in the Basque town of St-Jean-Pied-de-Port which is renowned for its mountain pork and fresh water trout or get lost in the many chocolate shops of Bayonne!!

The clear mountain waters of the Gave d'Oloron are famous for hosting the annual world fishing championships runs through Sauveterre and meanders through our village (5mins walk). Many of our guests enjoy walking down to the river from the Villa and spending the afternoon fishing or paddling in the crystal clear Pyrenees waters.

The town of Orthez has a lovely lake with a large sandy beach. There is a lifeguard on site with water sports available which makes it very popular day trip for families.

Suitability:
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • Low Allergen Environment

Guestbook comments from the owner
This holiday is the most relaxing holiday I have ever had. Fisrt time in France and the first holiday I have felt that I was actually in a different country, no chips and eggs here. The pace of life here is frustrating at first but then you gradually slow down and join in, makes you realise what a fast paced, stressed out counrty we live in. The property itself is more than a home from home, the furniture is beautiful and very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Ross, the information you provided us before our stay was very comprhensive and your cheery response to all our little queries was refreshing and beyond the call of duty. The area is just breathtaking and the food out of this world, a bit too hearty, but we obviously ate it all, you can't help not to no matter how full you are. We will definately be back next year with the rest of the family in tow, they are going to love it. So glad we chose your property, this has been the best holiday of my life, Thank You, Liz and Alex

Fantastic spacious accommodation in great location

  • 5 of 5
Having spent a week at this property with 9 other people I couldn't have asked for better accommodation. It was exceptionally comfortable and spacious. The garden is huge, which was brilliant for the kids and it was safe for them too, so the adults could relax! The property is in a very central location so getting around was very easy with the car. Abitain is a divine place and I will certainly be going back. I will most certainly stay at this accommodation again also.

Overall, the holiday was superb and I highly recommend this property.

Villa Minvielle, Abitain

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa.
The property description was accurate and the directions were also very clear and we arrived at the villa without any problems.
Our only suggestion would be a name plate on the villa and that an instruction that access was gained via the side passageway. This is just a minor point.
The property was well equiped well maintained and clean.
We had a barbeque every evening so did not use local restaurants but used local markets, shops and supermarkets where food was of good quality with very friendly service. We found local people very welcoming and willing to share a joke, we had a lot of fun with the locals!
.The area is delightful, full of places of interest to all our. family, we are particularly keen on history, wine and just strolling through the small towns and countryside.
The owners provided excellent customer service, friendly and informative.
We will recommend this property to our friends.
