Fantastic holiday in a fantastic place
We spent a fab 3 weeks in Susmiou - Ken and Shona were great hosts and couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. We were traveling with a 2 year old and a 3 month old and they very kindly provided lots of books and toys and even a paddling pool for the garden!
We specifically chose this spot due to its location - easily walkable to the small town of Navarrenx which has an outdoor pool and twice weekly market. Lots to do and see in the surrounding area and the time flew by too quickly. We loved the house - loads of character and nice and cool even when it was very hot outside. The donkeys in the field behind us were a big hit with our toddler too.
Lots of space in the house and the enclosed garden was a massive plus with small children.
Would highly recommend this to anyone and big thanks again to Ken, Shona and family - we'll hopefully be back!
A perfect spot to explore SW France
My husband and I just spent two great weeks at Shona and Ken’s gîte. The location was perfect for exploring the whole region, from the Pyrénées to the coast. They were wonderful hosts, very friendly, there to greet us and farewell us and several times in between to chat, but never intruding. On a fine day, when we asked about hanging out washing Ken installed a new clothes line, and when we asked about movies Shona brought us a giant bag of DVDs. (The television is only French) The house is very well-equipped, the heating is very efficient, both electrical and wood-fired and the internet fast. While the house worked very well for the two of us, being an ancient restored farmhouse, it is charmingly wonky and creaky and could be noisy with a large group. We had some cold, wet weather so a dryer would have helped, but we were able to hang clothes on racks inside. While there are no shops in the village, there is a good supermarket on the main road almost at the end of the street within walking distance. We followed our hosts’ recommendations and had some wonderful meals out, both nearby and on the coast. It’s a great place to stay for anyone who wants to spend time in this beautiful part of France.
Great house in a perfect location!
We had a wonderful weeks stay in this lovely village. The house was very clean, comfortable,spacious and well equipped for all our needs. It is a perfect base for exploring the Pyrenees Atlantiques region.
It was great to meet Ken and Shona and their delightful children who were always on hand to give helpful advice.We really enjoyed meeting their extended family "The three Donkeys" and their dog!! All so cute!!
Great place to stay
Five of us had a lovely stay here, house roomy, clean and well furnished for a group or a couple. Shona and Ken are excellent hosts, very helpful and we loved the donkeys
Would recommend to anyone thinking about visiting this area as it is so close to lots of places worth a visit
It was great to sit in front of a real fire on the one very wet day we had

We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Maybe we'll see you again one day?!
We had a blast visiting the area and the house we perfect :) We'll be back for sure!
It was great to meet you. We're delighted you too fell under the charm of this beautiful area!
We had a great 2 weeks in this lovely French house. It was in a quiet village but within walking distance of supermarket and boulongerie, also lovely walk into Navarantz which we did often. We had meals in Navarantz and enjoyed the local producers night, check out if it is on when you visit. My family went for a swim in the nearby river, there are many activities you can try canoeing,rafting and swimming in the pool.
We visited many places while there and the train up the mountain was a highlight for us. As the Tour de France came to Pau while we were ther my husband, son in law and grandson went to see the cyclists.
Ken and Shona are very friendly and nothing is too much bother for them but you can have your privacy also.
We would certainly return to this cottage the Ken has lovingly restored.
