A LITTLE PARADISE IN THE MOUNTAINS.

  • 5 of 5
A lovely place, very good setting. About half an hour you get the Pyrenées or in an hour you stay in Biarritz (Atlantic Coast). I spent one week in early April with my husband and two children ( 6 and 8 years) , both swimmed at the pond all the time if the sun shined in the sky. And it's possible practising fishing (no killed) in the pond.

ROMANTIC AND CHARMING GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent our honeymoon (2 weeks) in the Watermill and we couldn't have found a better and more romantic setting.
All the furniture was very comfortable (far more superior than most french rentals!) and fitted the environment well. We had plenty of candlelight "al fresco" dining on the patio overlooking the pond.
Very well-eqipped kitchen and absolutely no problems with any of the appliances.
Extra-plus for the large flatscreen-TV (so my husband could watch sports!).
Owners easy to communicate with, good cleaning and overall a great place.

NICE HOUSE, TIRED FURNISHINGS

  • 4 of 5
This is a charming little house in a lovely setting. The stream runs right under the house, with a window in the kitchen to show it off. The pond is a great feature, but too cold for all but the thickest skinned. The outdoor table is great, and nice loungers by the pond. The kitchen is well-equipped, but the microwave/cooker wasn't working, so you have to be creative on the hob and BBQ. The interior has been lovingly decorated, but the furnishings feel a little old and tired, with springs sprung in the two armchairs and thin pillows. It was very charming, but a little expensive for what it was.
