Sumptuous very private house completely private pool with spring board, inner walled garden with large lawned area. Surrounded by fields and farms. Ideal for a getaway and sight seeing holiday as 'Tafiart' is on the border of four departments. Tafiart is a private 'Home' therefore just like being at home with sunshine, peace and quiet yet Pau and all the fun it holds is 30 minutes maximum away. Several great restaurants within 2-10 minutes away as are 27 Vineyards.
Tafiart is great for a group as there are several 'Break-out' areas for some peace and quiet. For the 'Fois gras' lovers, you're living in the region and Jurancon, Madiran, are on the doorstep for wonderful wine. Also Eugenie Les Bains, famous 5* health resort 10 minutes.
Great for Cyclists too as the Tour de France passes close by. Very popular with french cyclists around here
Flights and Location: Although I say the house is in Pyrenees Atlantiques it is right on the border of the Landes also. A great location for four regions! 25 minutes from Pau Airport, CityJet from London City low cost flights and Ryanair to Lourdes 45mins
Charles de Gaulle and Orly Air France at least 8 flights per day to Pau from 29 Euro.
Bordeaux and Biarritz BA and Easy Jets and Ryanair

Pau is a cosmopolitan city and very equestrian
My Name is Craig Burton, I'm originally from Yorkshire lived in France since 2005
Craig Burton purchased this farmhouse in 2005
Tafiart's location was the winner for me, I didn't want to by restricted to where I could escape to so therefore we are equidistant to Bordeaux, Toulouse, Biarritz, Pau and Tarbes and Lourdes on the doorstep and a good regional airport too.
Tranquility, gastronomic, culinary and a great escape, cycling, running, gym all here
We just returned home from a gorgeous stay at Tarfait. 14 of us went to celebrate my 30th birthday and it could not have been better.
The farmhouse is simply stunning and the photos don't do it justice. Everything we could possibly need was thought of and accommodated for. Literally a home from home (only better).
Every room was beautifully decorated and furnished with home comforts. Craig has fantastic taste, from the unique art on the walls and ornaments in cabinets right down to the gorgeous bedding. Really well stocked kitchen and pantry with everything we needed to make some great meals.
Pool and garden was where we spent most of our time and it was perfect, beautiful lawn and gorgeous flowers and a perfectly maintained pool.
Car is required to get around but everything is pretty easy to get to with a local supermarket and bakery just a five minute drive. Lovely bike riding routes too and a great local restaurant 'Minvielle' - food there was fantastic and great value.
We will all return again and might make it a yearly tradition as we had such a fantastic and relaxed time. Can't recommend highly enough.
Thanks for a great stay Craig and Julie Ann, hope to see you soon.
What a beautiful property, in a gorgeous spot. When we visited in July 2015 the surrounding fields were full of sunflowers - a sight I've always wanted to see. Some holiday homes you go to feel a bit unloved but this one is the opposite. Every little detail has been taken care of, meaning you get a holiday in somewhere that feels just like home. Can't wait to return.
We had a truly wonderful holiday here in August 2014 even though the weather was not great. The house is full of character and very welcoming; you feel more like you are staying at a friends house than a rental property. We were a large family party from 8 years to 85 years old and not sure how many would actually turn up (typical twenty year olds) but Craig was very relaxed that we were going to utilise every bed available and made sure we had plenty of bedding, towels, space, supplies etc which made you feel that nothing was held back in helping you to have a good time. Highly recommend.
We had a fantastic time at Craig's house which is very comfortable and stylishly decorated, but not so much so that we couldn't relax in case of damaging anything! It has a very personal touch and every effort is made to make you feel at home. It is much more of a home than a holiday let which was perfect for our large family group from 8-88 years old.
The house is beautiful, warm and beautiful garden. The room was beautifully decorated simply, it feels like home. Craig is an attentive host, jovial and friendly. And what about breakfast if not we would have taken in a table was so pretty and delicious meal. When we left we all feel from a friend's house. we had a great time and are already thinking about returning. We recommend to all!
Vast and luxuries, all the facilities you could need (even game sets!), everything to an excellent standard. Having read the other reviews they are all true to my experience. Highly recommended.
Easily accessible from Bordeaux, Toulouse, Lourds, Pau, Biarritz, Pau airports. On the Border of Four departments Les Landes, Pyranees Atlantique and Gers. Haute-Pyranees The Bearn is a very popular destination for the French as is Pays Basque all on the doorstep.
Also, Eugenie les Bains is ten minutes up the road. The most glamorous wonderful 5* Health Spa Village and Michelin Star Restaurant and Bistrot
There are tons of things to do for small people in the area and we have four mountain bikes for guests use.
Tafiart is located on the border of four regions all with their own specialities in food and feel different. from beaches to walking to bars, farms, lots of vineyards (27). Also lovely French farmers markets in all the towns and villages.
An hour in any direction you're in a completely different place. A day out 'Go Ape' to beaches and mountain walks.
