Wonderful peaceful countryside location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little cottage set in leafy gardens is perfect for chilling out on sunny days. Comfortably furnished and cosy with a well equipped kitchen it was a real home from home. Views of the mountains abound and the valleys are only a short drive away.

The British owners were delightful and helpful throughout our stay and never intrusive. The pool was a great asset especially on the warmest days and lazing on sun loungers under the trees soon became a habit!

Spring 2011 in the Pyrenees

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay and the Welcome Pack on arrival was most appreciated.

This traditional cottage has lots of history and is located in beautiful Bearn countryside surrounded by flowering hay meadows at this time of year. It is perfectly quiet and is set in lovely gardens.

The photos are accurate, although the dining area photo must be out of date as the table is much larger than shown and there is a lovely pine dresser as well. The kitchen is a separate room and has everything you could require with a tall family sized fridge / freezer. The lounge area has two comfortable sofas and a flat screen TV with lots of English channels (BBC, ITV etc). The bedrooms are upstairs (quite steep and narow) and have a couple of low beams so tall people will have to take a little bit of care. The bathroom is between the two bedrooms and the only negative from us is that it only had a bath and no shower. However it is a traditional style cottage so I imagine fitting a shower would be quite difficult.

We were in this area to go hiking in the Pyrennes. Depending where you go it is 45 minute to 1 hour drive up to the trails. We left a walking book behind to perhaps inspire others. Oloron has a very large Leclerc supermarket which catered for us very well with Oloron approx 15 minute drive from the cottage. Pau is worth a visit but it a fairly standard yet pleasant French town with nothing much of note. However, we strongly recommend the Du Barry bistro for their fabulous and very good value half portion Chateau Briand with Bearnais sauce (thanks to Harriette for the recommendation whilst Maggie and Barry were away).
