About the property

Pool, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, bathroom, 2 terraces. For 4 guests.

The house 'Casa Louis':

Your holiday house 'Casa Louis' is off the small town of Labatut in the country. It is designed for 4 people and has an American kitchen, two bedrooms (double bed and two single beds), bathroom with shower / tub and toilet and a separate toilet and a covered and an open terrace. The kitchen is equipped with everything necessary. Each comes with a dishwasher, washing machine, vacuum cleaner, a microwave and a TV with international channels and DVD use. Towels and linen are inclusive and are changed by us once a week.

The few steps away from the house pool with hot-cold shower is five times ten feet tall and 1. 75 meters deep and is treated with salt instead of chlorine. The pool is umpflanzt with bushes and shrubs and is situated on an acre of land, which is fenced by trees. Planted is the terrain with fruit trees (peach, apple and pear) and also offers large lawns.

50 meters from the guest house is the house of your hosts, a 400 year old farm.

At the guesthouse two cars can be parked. Pets only by appointment.

The 'Casa Louis' is reached by a 100-meter-long dirt road that dissipates from the Route du Boscq, from which one can look far beyond a typical French farmland to the Pyrenees, which are about 40 kilometers away. Just as the Atlantic, the beaches of the Cote Basque can be reached in a forty-five minutes. Even Europe's Capital of Culture this year, San Sebastian is only about 90 kilometers away from the house.

Shops, supermarkets, bakeries and butchers are in close vicinity abundant. Likewise, there are weekly farmers' markets in neighboring towns Pouillon, Peyrehorade, Dax and Orthez instead. One attraction are the flea markets in the region. For more sophisticated shopping you go to Biarritz, Bayonne, Hossegor or Saint-Jean-de-Luz, where the culinary specialties of the region - can get in the market halls there or at the butchers - Rilette, Paté and fed with corn poultry. The famous BREBIS cheese you can buy in the Pyrenees directly from the manufacturer. Sharp allspice and spices in all variations are offered, among others in Espelette.

The Sea:

The Cote Basque, with its pine forests, long, wide beaches one of the most attractive tourist regions in France. Not nearly as crowded as the Cote d'Azur it retains much of its original such as small fishing villages as well as exclusive seaside resorts that have hardly changed for over a hundred years like Biarritz. Here, for example, there are 700 villas and guest houses, which in the time of Napoleon III. were built, listed building. Above all, the Grand Hotel, which the emperor had for himself and his wife Eugenie built as a summer residence by dm downfall of royalism as a hotel famous guests like Bismarck and representatives of the Russian nobility, Orson Welles, Ava Gardner, Hemingway, Cocteau and Picasso, among others housed. In the 50s, here came the German and living in Hollywood screenwriter Peter Viertel one with a surfboard in the luggage and went surfing on the Cote Basque popular. Also known was the Cote Basque by thalasso treatments that are now offered in many spa resorts. However, the number one sporting activity is golf: More than a dozen courses are established on the Cote Basque between Bayonne and the Spanish border - some even in the high plateaus directly on the coast overlooking the sea.

The Mountains:

The Basque country with its unique mountain, graze freely in the sheep, horse and cattle herds, one kilometer from your house begins located on the Gave de Pau. To the mythical mountains of the Tour de France, with its spectacular climbs, the Thourmalet, the Somport and Aspin, there are one or two hours drive away. This area is ideal for cycling outright, as some of our guests told us already excited. Also worth a visit is the Pau nearly 70 kilometers away, where the still popular Henri IV. Spent his youth and the tour caravan refers regularly between the mountain stages station. Compacted about their adventures and experiences in the Basque Country and wrote already Henrich Heine in the poem 'Atta Troll' and Kurt Tucholsky in his 'Pyrenees book'.

A few miles to the Casa Louis' passing via the Camino to Santiago de Compostella, then with its historic, very Basque city core begins on the of the idyllic St-Jean-Pied-de-Port, the steepest daily distance pilgrimage to Roncesvalles. Worth a visit is the Sanctuary of Lourdes.

For a little variety in our region, which is not yet overrun by tourism so worried plentiful.

Transport network:

The region is very well connected to the international transport network. Only seven kilometers from your holiday home there are ramps to Autoroute A 64 - E 80, which runs from Montpellier via Toulouse to Bayonne, Biarritz and San Sebastian. Compounds with the train there are possible. The nearest airports are in Biarritz (60 km), Pau (68) Hondarribia / San Sabastian (88 km) and Bordeaux (175 km).

The 'Casa Louis' is recommended as the ideal holiday accommodation. The noise of the streets here is nothing to hear. In the evening and at night you can enjoy an often beautiful starry sky. In addition to the holiday months of July / August are recommended in June and still more the autumn months, you can certainly compare with the Canadian 'Indian Summer' in the Pyrenees. Rest in heavenly peace is guaranteed in the 'Casa Louis'.

Schönes Haus auf einem großzügigen Anwesen

  • 5 of 5

Im August haben wir mit unserer Tochter hier eine schöne Woche auf unserer Tour durch Frankreich verbracht. Die Vermieter sind sehr herzlich und haben uns während des Aufenthaltes sehr gute Tipps und Hinweise geben können.

Der Pool war natürlich ein Highlight, welches wir ungestört nutzen konnten.

Das Haus war bestens ausgestattet. Die Räume sind sehr hoch, was wir als sehr angenehm empfunden haben. Die überdachte Terrasse bietet bei Regen wie auch bei Sonnenschein einen guten Schutz.

Wir haben von dort aus viele Ausflüge unternommen, wie Biarritz, St.Jean de Luz,Capbreton, Hossegor...

Wir können diese Haus einfach nur wärmstens empfehlen.

pure Erholung am Fuß der Pyrenäen

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in dem Ferienhaus sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Räume sind sehr geschmackvoll und gemütlich eingerichtet. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet, so dass keine Wünsche offen blieben.

Besonders auf der Terrasse und in dem schönen Garten haben wir viele gemütliche Stunden verbracht, unterbrochen von erfrischenden Abkühlungen im Pool. Die Ruhe wurde nur von Eidechsen und Grünspechten unterbrochen.

Der Kontakt mit den Vermietern war herzlich und zuvorkommend.

Viele Ausflugsziele sehr unterschiedlicher Art waren gut erreichbar. Auch hier haben wir nützliche Hinweise von den Vermietern erhalten.

Wir würden gern wiederkommen und können das Objekt nur empfehlen.

Sehr schöner Aufenthalt!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben hier mit unseren 3 Kindern zwei tolle Augustwochen verbracht.

Die Vermieter empfingen uns sehr herzlich. Das Haus ließ keine Wünsche offen und bot selbst für 5 Personen ausreichend Platz.

Das Haus ist ideal zum Verweilen – der große Pool war das Highlight für die Kinder. Die Lage des Hauses lädt zu zahlreichen Ausflügen ans Meer oder in die Berge ein. Viele Ausflugstipps haben wir vom Vermieter bekommen.

Das Restaurant in Pouillon ist sehr zu empfehlen! Besonders gefallen haben uns die Küstenstädte Hossegor und Guethary!

Toller Urlaub!

  • 5 of 5

Im August 2013 haben wir hier drei tolle Wochen verbracht.

Wir wurden von sehr netten und hilfsbereiten Gastgebern empfangen und hatten eine schöne Zeit. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig und ist sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet.

Pool und der große Garten waren - vor allem für unsere Kinder - großartig!

Das Haus liegt etwa außerhalb, ein Auto ist auf jeden Fall notwendig. In ca. 10 Auto-Minuten sind aber Geschäfte etc. gut zu erreichen.
