Overview

Oloron Ste Marie House Rental Photos and Description

The accommodation is spread over four levels

From the moment we arrived at the entrance gates to la Joliette, we had a good feeling about this property. The long, gravel driveway leads to an imposing, beautifully presented property and one which can be seen from many parts of the town. The quality of accommodation is beyond that normally associated with holiday lets.

The property is well-known in the town and has quite a colourful history too. The house was built in the mid 1800's for the Bishop of Oloron. It was owned by the Church until the 1920's, and by one family since then, until an English family purchased it in 2005. For some years, from the 1960's until the mid-1980's it was a small hotel and restaurant and the present owners tell us that it had 'a bit of a reputation'. For what, we're not quite sure but for us it just adds to la Joliette's appeal!

Inside:

The accommodation is spread over four levels.

Basement Floor

Games room with table tennis table and CD stereo (with iPod input), TV and Sony Playstation which can also be used for DVD's- it's a great place for the kids to unwind and amuse themselves away from adults.

There is a shower & WC here also - ideal for when you are relaxing by the pool. Also handy is the drinks fridge.

The laundry room can also be found in the basement.

Ground floor:

The main entrance, via the stone staircase, leads into a spacious entrance hall. To the right is a dining area with table for up to 10 persons, and to the left is the kitchen. Generously equipped, the kitchen also has access to a south-facing decked terrace.

The hallway leads to the spacious grand living room. This is the principal room of the house and has been furnished to a very high standard. Features include huge mirrors and a marble fireplace. This is an extremely comfortable space for resting in the evening, after a long and delicious meal on the terrace! There is plenty of seating (three 2-seater sofas), plus flat screen TV, CD stereo, DVD and VCR. There are lots of DVDs and videos for guests' use.

A wonderful, original carved wooden staircase leads from the hallway to the first and second floors.

First floor:

Four of the bedrooms are situated on the first floor. Each has a pleasant aspect and benefit from attractive, original wood flooring.

Bedroom 1 - queen-size double bed, double wardrobe, bedside cabinets x2. En-suite shower room with WC and basin. Views to the front of the house.

Bedroom 2 - twin beds, chest of drawers, dressing table. En-suite shower room with WC and basin. Views to the front of the house.

Bedroom 3 - twin beds, double wardrobe, dressing table, bedside cabinets x2. En-suite shower room with WC and basin. Views west to the rear of the house.

Bedroom 4 - king-size double bed, double wardrobe, chest of drawers, bedside cabinets x2, fireplace. Private bathroom with bath, shower, double basins & WC. Views to the south and west.

Second floor:

At the top of the staircase there is an additional bedrooms which is closed off for personal use/storage.

Outside:

The house lies in a generous plot of land, about 1.5 ha in total. There is plenty of space front and back for kids to play.

The breakfast terrace is south-facing and the rear pool terraces are south and west-facing. There is plenty of room for dining outside. The patio terrace can be accessed directly from the living room and basement.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The property really exceeded our expectations because the beautiful views were so breathtaking. The swimming pool was great for the children. The house was spacious and private.

Car: recommended

The villa enjoys a 'standalone', hill-top location on the southern outskirts of the town. Its elevated situation affords it excellent views to the Pyrenees. The property is tucked away thanks to its long driveway and there is no passing traffic. As such the location feels very private. Oloron-Ste-Marie is a traditional B��arnais market town to the south west of Pau. The stunning scenery is a key reason to visit this area.
