FRENCH MANSION ABOVE THE ADOUR VALLEY; SOUTH FACING PATIO, VIEW OF THE PYRENEES

Biarritz House Rental Photos and Description

High-quality furnishing, living in a great ambiance

Le Pouy is more than 100 years old. Our villa is from the 19th century and is a historical gem. It is located in the middle of a park with old trees on a ridge above the Adour valley. The old linden parkway leads guest to the completely modern mansion. You will live on two floors. On the top floor there are 3 comfortably furnished bedrooms and an exclusive bathroom. There is a 40m² living/dining room on the ground floor. You can get to the 70m² south facing patio through two winged doors. Here you will have a view of the great, scenic foothills of the Pyrenees. Before you, you will find valleys, forest and the Pyrenees in the background. The 22m² large eat-in kitchen offers enough space to cook, eat and have conversations at a large wooden table. The ground floor has the second well equipped bathroom and a garden room with access to the patio.

Your opinion: Our main interest is to see that our guests feel comfortable in Le Pouy. We make sure, in every way possible, that the house is given to you in a clean condition. We also make sure that all technical defects are fixed and that we rent you a vacation house intact. However, if you should have any problems, please contact the house administration directly and they will immediately take care of your problem and they will quickly regulate the damage. If you have any suggestions as to what could be improved, please talk to us or write us. We are looking for friends of Le Pouy who would like to visit our house again. Your total review of Le Pouy is very important to us. That is why we ask you to give us your opinion. You will find a guestbook on the bureau in the living room. We ask you to use this book. Thank you!

Park and garden: The 900m² park property has a Mansion and is surrounded by hedges. The green hedges give you a sense of intimacy. The park offers room to relax, to follow your individual wishes, to simply enjoy nature or to be athletic. The park is often used for dinners by sunset. By the way, it takes 5 people to “hug” the old cedar tree. A relatively steep southern slop with a fruit orchard borders the park. Try the apples and pears. The southern slope runs deep into the valley. It is fun to discover the 9000m² property. You can get to Le Pouy with a car by taking A 64 (5)- Guiche or in a combination with a rental car and the train to Bayonne, or with an airplane to Biarritz; Bilbao, Pau, Toulouse and Bordeaux, each direct. Alternatively, you can take an airplane from multiple German cities to the hub in Mallorca, and then to Bilbao.

The house: With everything that you do during the most beautiful time of the year by the sea, in the mountains or in the cities, please don’t forget the relaxation and tranquility that your vacation domicile Le Pouy offers. Le Pouy was modernized 5 years ago from head to foot. On the two floors, the house offers enough room for individualists traveling together or for small groups of up to 6 people. On the top floor you will find an appealing, large room that can be a sensitive refuge during both the night and day. The views of the park, the parkway, the mountain panorama and the surrounding valleys are legendary. The 100-year old fireplace in the salon on the ground floor is a gem that you will surely like. Also impressive is spending the evening to the night on the warm patio, to hear the nature and to enjoy the red whine of the region.

Important: Le Pouy is

a non-smoking house. Please do not smoke in the house. Thank you!

We thoroughly enjoyed the rural atmosphere of this house. It has beautiful views to the river and the mountains. Very easy access to the highway. Also the kitchen and bathrooms are very modern and up to date with large deep tub for soaking after a day of touring. This a great location to explore the beautiful Pays Basque.

Le Pouy is located away from the coastal cities, but yet you can get to these cities within a few minutes drive. Biarritz is not too far away. The “green” Pyranees can be reached in less than 30 minutes. Relatively close to Le Pouy, you will find the centers of the adjacent, northern region with the cities of Dax, Mont-de Marsan, the swimming location of Mimizan and Capbreton. Thus, Le Pouy is a good starting point for a diverse vacation, with beaches, hikes through the foothills and excursions to the nearby region, in the wine region of Gascogne and the historical heart of Aquitaine. North of Biarritz you will find impressive, wide sand beaches and dunes. South of Biarritz, you will experience great rocky coasts of the coastal roads with its bays and coastal cities. In the Basque region, you will get to know the great, unique cultural landscape in Europe.

Other Activities: White water rafting, paragliding, skiing
