Why Richard Burgess chose Pouzac

We love visiting France for its culture, great scenery and we particularly love mountains and walking. We visited the Hautes Pyrenees recently and immediately fell in love with the area. It is traditional France, with many old customs, and the people are very friendly. On our first day in the area we met a French farmer bringing his sheep down from the mountains on the main road. The Pyrenees mountains themselves are awe inspiring and a wonderful back drop to the many walks you can do in the area. We have always wanted to buy a property in France and we knew when we visited Bagneres de Bigorre in the Pyrenees that we had found the perfect place for our home in France. We hope that you will love the place as much as we do.

What makes this chalet unique

The main attraction of Villa Tamerza when we decided to buy the house was that it was situated in the countryside yet was only 5 minutes from Bagneres de Bigorre with all its facilities, restaurants and a place to buy your croissants in a morning. Of course the fact that you can wake up to views of the Pyrenees mountains each day is incomparable. The house has its own pool and tennis court, plus is an excellent base for cyclists (it is on the main Tour de France route and is a mecca for cycling), which were added bonuses not only for ourselves but also for our guests. You can quickly drive to many great scenic areas in the region as you are already close to the mountains not only for walking but also for skiing and many other outdoor activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello! We absolutely loved the villa and had a fantastic time. Thank you so much for renting it out, if it was mine I'm not sure I could bear to share it! I have already left a full review on Tripadvisor!

The chalet is within easy reach of all local amenities including supermarkets as well as the local boulangerie, boucherie, plus a range of restaurants in Bagneres de Bigorre. Outside: The chalet is situated in circa 2 acres of private garden which offers a swimming pool (8m x 4m and 1.5m deep, unheated) and a full size tennis court (for private use of guests). There is an outside terrace with access from the kitchen overlooking the pool with an outside table and seating. There is a long drive to the rear of the chalet with ample parking for several cars. A BBQ, garden furniture and tennis racquets are available for use and stored in the basement. Utility Room: Villa Tamerza has a chalet-style basement with inside parking for one car, washing machine, tumble dryer, log store, sun loungers, garden furniture, BBQ and games room with table tennis table. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen are provided and changed weekly (sun towels are not provided for use around the swimming pool).

average rating of 4.0 based on 5 reviews

Lovely, comfortable spacious and well equipped chalet near to lots of activities and places

  • 5 of 5

Villa Tamerza is a lovely spacious, airy chalet and really well equipped, big table for eating around, comfy lounge with 'real' fireplace, super equipped kitchen and all bedrooms and bathrooms are a great size, some with views of the mountains. Plenty of entertainment, pool, tennis court, large garden and games room. It's in a great location for getting out to nearby towns Bagnere, Pau, Lourdes etc..and only half-an-hour from a fabulous skiing resort. Lots of walks nearby, and Bagnere is a lovely little local town for restaurants, shops, markets and the amazing spa. Definitely need a car for the chalet. We would definitely go again.

vacances de noel

  • 3 of 5

maison confortable et agréable pour se retrouver en famille. dommage qu'elle soit au bord de la route de tarbes, nous étions réveillés par le bruit des voitures (la maison ne dispose pas de double vitrage) ce qui risque d'être difficile à supporter en été.
