About Linda McDonald
We have now retired and stay at Maison Cantegrit ourselves at various times of the year, we regularly have family and friends with us. Over the years we've made numerous improvements, and continue to do so. It's a very private, peaceful house, so ideal for a 'get away from it all' holiday, but it's also very easy to locate and to access everything you may need for a more active holiday! We're confident Maison Cantegrit will offer you the perfect place to stay for your vacation.
Linda McDonald purchased this House in 2005
Why Linda McDonald chose Bérenx
Because Cantegrit is so well located, being just 45 minutes from the French coast, 1 hour to the Spanish coast, the Pyrenees are also just an hour away, plus easy local access to historical towns and villages, it's centrally placed to explore and experience this wonderful region. So we couldn't resist buying it! It's certainly given us many happy times, and guests have certainly enjoyed it.
What makes this House unique
The stunning views over the surrounding rolling French countryside looking Southwards towards the wonderful Pyrenees Mountains was something we couldn't ignore. The spacious accommodation also meant we could have our own space when needed even if friends and family visited. Whilst relaxing in the pool area, especially with a G&T, it's very easy to forget the stresses of work!

We have stayed in this area many times and this lovely house has the best outside eating and pool area out of all the properties we have rented. The view across the fields with the Pyrenees in the distance is beautiful. The house was plenty big enough for the fourteen adults in our party. It is spacious and very well equipped. There is so much to do in the area from mountain walking, canoeing, river swimming and taking part in the wonderful local festivals. We drove to Pamplona and Lourdes for day trips. The Atlantic coast is only 45 minutes away. The house does not have wifi but this wasn't an issue for us. We would thoroughly recommend this house.
Great for a group holiday
We had a great stay at this house. Our group of 14 had more than enough room and the kids and adults all enjoyed the large pool. The facilities were clean and well maintained and were enough for all of us. In addition the house was cool in the evening even when the outside was hot! The only downside was the lack of internet access which we thought had been installed and made keeping in contact difficult (some of our party needed to access work), otherwise we would definitely come here again.
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour! la maison est spacieuse, très bonne literie, une grande piscine sécurisée, entretenue, parfaite pour des jeunes enfants. L 'accueil fut chaleureux et les voisins très charmants serviables et accueillants. Tout mes hôtes ont été ravis. Toutes les comodités sont proches, la région extra.Le prix très correcte par rapport à la région et aux autres gites des alentours beaucoup moins spacieux. Je recommande vivement le "cantagrit" .
agreable maison familiale
Nous avons passé une superbe semaine dans cette maison spacieuse et tres bien equipee. Nous n avons manqué de rien. La piscine est tres agreable, la grande salle a manger aussi. Nous avons cependant trouvé dommage que tout soit en anglais dans la maison (dvd, cassette, mode d emploi de la tv, hifi etc). Nous recommandons cette maison pour des vacances au calme. Nous vous remercions pour la delicate attention a notre arrivee (3 bouteilles de vin)

Great stay at Cantegrit!
Spent a great week in this really comfortable, spacious and beautifully located house. Great situation and really lovely welcome from the owners. All had been thought of - nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend and will consider for future visits to the region.
Grande maison près du très joli village de Salies
Nous étions plusieurs couples avec enfants et avons passé une très bonne semaine dans cette grande maison, suffisamment grande pour que nous ne soyons pas tous les uns sur les autres. La maison est très bien équipée et avec un accès à la piscine très sécurisé pour les jeunes enfants. La maison est idéale avec des tout-petits, car la terrasse y est très spacieuse. La vue est superbe aussi et la piscine très bien. Il nous a manqué juste une petite chose; un accès à internet.
Nous reviendrons avec plaisir!
Numerous vineyards in the region, Thermal spa baths in Salies de Bearn and country park, large country park with a lake, beach, playground etc in Orthez, World class salmon fishing 10 mins away, kayaking & rafting 15 mins away, Pyrenees for part of the Tour de France bike race plus stunning walks, snow skiing & bird watching, Atlantic coast at Biarritz for world class surfing, Pau for Europe's oldest golf club, and so much more. Spain is reached in just over 1 hour, so easy to visit San Sebastian, Bilbao, Pamplona etc.
