The caves at Sare
Wonderful sandy beaches from Hendeya to the Grande Plague in Biaritz.
The lake at St Pee great for small children to bathe.
We stayed here the last week in September. We hired the maisonette but were shown around the villa also. The place is very very peaceful, not a sound from roads etc. The pool is lovely,larger than the kidney shaped types so you can swim lenghths.The views are fabulous. The property is well equipped and extremely clean.
There is plenty to do in the area. You are 25 mins from Biarritz airport and we went on day trips to Biarritz, St Jean de Luz for the coast.
We also went to San Sebastian which was nearby and we went on longer trips to Lourdes and Col de Tourmalet.
Nearby to the property there is the lake at St Pee.This was a nice evening stroll and you could take a picnic.There are little boats , a beach and a water slide and a few restaurants.I think kids would love it and its 5 minutes from the property.
Another trip was on the train La Petit Rhune,this was fantastic,we went up a mountain and could see for miles, to the coast and to Spain. A french lady told us that the hotel in Sare nearby did a very good evening meal.
We also drove to St Jean Pied de Port , about 30 minutes ,which was very quaint and has a good choice of restaurants.
The nearby village of Espelette was beautiful , the pepper village. We had a superb meal at the hotel there with fantastic service.
In summary I would say this was a great property in a very peaceful area with loads to do. You are not far from the airport, the coast, the mountains, Spain.You are renting a lovely place with a great pool.
The villa and maisonette would be great for 2 families or for a large family with perhaps grandparents in the maisonette.
The owners are very helpful and answered any queries.
Could not recommend this place highly enough.
