Fantastic 'Picture Postcard' Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at La Bowdette and had a very enjoyable and relaxing time.

It is a perfect 'picture postcard' holiday home with a lovely secluded private swimming pool.

The surrounding area was very picturesque. It was only a short drive into the nearby town 5 minutes for groceries and a few very good local restaurants close by although the quality of the local produce on offer meant we enjoyed eating outside and using the bbq on the terrace on most occasions.

The house was beautifully decorated, well equipped and spotlessly clean.

We didn't venture very far during the week but we were very close to the Pyrenees and Biarritz was only about a 40minute drive.

Overall we found it the perfect place for a relaxing stay and I would highly recommend this house.

A perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

La Bowdette is a lovely french country house with just the right amount of character and charm. It is situated on the edge of a small hamlet and has just the right everything for a good time. The house itself has a nice flow with a big kitchen connected to a comfortable living room. Kate and Charlie follow through on all of their commitments and were consummate hosts.
