There is a 14 metre x 8 metre pool with amazing views of the beautiful Bearnaise countryside beyond to the Pyrenees Mountains. There is plenty of room for sunbathing arond the pool with its large terrace or for just lazing or playing in the seven acres of parklike gardens. This is the perfect destination for individual couples to large family groups.

San Sebastian in Spain is one hour away. Horse riding and walking in the mountains or around the gorgeous local area. There is so much to do and see within easy reach or maybe you would prefer to just relax by our beautiful pool and enjoy the peace and quiet!

Why not come and enjoy a break 'away from it all' in early Spring or in the Autumn when the surrounding country side looks magnificent and everything is so very peaceful!

Large Parties: Although all our properties are completely self-contained and perfect for individual small parties of people they can be booked together for parties of up to 16, ideal for reunions with family or friends - but you will have to book early to be sure of getting all the properties!

REGULAR RETURNERS

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we first arrived at Lavie we felt instantly relaxed and at home. Our hosts Mary & Roger could not have been more friendly or helpful and had even offered to get shopping for us in advance. From the flowers to the wine to biscuits, tea/coffee and milk it was like arriving home every time we visited (and that is 9 times in total and in all seasons!) We have stayed in all four cottages and each is equipped to an equally high standard with everything one needs on holiday. There is so much to do and see that even though we have returned so many times we are still finding new opportunities for fun and entertainment. We would thoroughly recommend all these cottages for anyone looking for relaxation and high standards.

PERFECT FOR FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent stay with Roger and Mary during August 2007. So much so that we have booked again for two weeks in 2008.
The atmosphere is so relaxed and yet, behind the scenes, I am sure that a lot of effort goes in to ensuring a clean and comfortable stay. Quiet efficiency.
The accommodation was spotless as was the swimming pool. Dragging our five year old daughter and teenaged son away from the poolside for an excursion was sometimes an effort!
The surroundings are quiet and rural; yet a few minutes drive away is the very plesant small town of Salies de Bearn with interesting riverside architecture and a handful of enjoyable restaurants as well as a supermarket for provisions for the Gite.
The Pyrenees are within an easy drive as is the coastal area surrounding Biarritz.
Roger and Mary are a friendly couple, happy to offer advice for places to visit and things to do.
Thoroughly recommended.

Domaine Lavie is located on the outskirts of the picturesque thermal spa town of Salies de Bearn which is midway between Biarritz and Pau and within an hour you can be on a golden beach, walking and enjoying the wonderful scenery in the Pyrenees mountains, visiting towns and villages in this unspoilt region of France or even in Spain which is only an hour away. San Sebastian should not be missed. There are many historic Chateaux in this lush green region, stunning rivers and beautiful golf courses. Reputed to be one of the best areas for golf courses in France. Wonderful course or salmon fishing in the beautiful rivers in season. Cheerful markets are held daily and in the Summer lively 'Fetes' are not to be missed! Salies de Bearn is an extremely attractive town famous for its wonderful hot salt water thermal spa where all kinds of beauty treatments can be enjoyed at very reasonable prices.
