About Mrs Dilys Bridgeman

My husband and I enjoy walking in the countryside near our home in central England. We appreciate the amenities in our town centre. We both play golf and enjoy swimming.

Mrs Dilys Bridgeman purchased this villa in 2006

Why Mrs Dilys Bridgeman chose Orthez

The area is a great base for local activities and sightseeing in this very picturesque part of South West France.

The swimming pool and terrace are south facing.

The villa is surrounded on 3 sides by farm fields.The countryside views are impressive especially from the master bedroom and the double bedroom balcony. We are 1 km from Orthez.

What makes this villa unique

The villa has an attractive modern Bearnaise roof.

The access is private and there is an electrically operated gate.

Laurel and pine trees are used, in addition to secure fencing to provide privacy and security.

The interior is spacious and has a fan assisted filtered air circulation system, enabling it to stay cool inside during hot weather.(you must close alll doors and windows)

We only have a few neighbours in France but they are very helpful and make it is easy for us to integrate.

Great home for a holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We have had a perfect holiday here. There were 10 of us staying here and we found that there was plenty of room. The beds were comfortable and we all slept well using the room fans to stay cool. The pool was lovely to cool off in. The temperature of it was around 27 degrees centigrade. The weather was lovely mostly hot and sunny. We made good use of the patio area, eating the majority of our meals here. We found the size of the fridge to be adequate for our needs and the two shelves in the freezer were very useful.

Orthez was close enough for an evening or early morning walk (once it had cooled down, or before it got too hot), which we did most days. The supermarket was close enough to visit daily for fresh bread.

Owner's Response: We think this is a fare representation by our Dutch visitors. These visitors respected our property and informed us of minor problem with the electrically operated sunblind.We have had it repaired. They also did a professional repair to a drain pipe that they accidentally damaged. We are very pleased.

Très grande masion avec de grandes chambres. Idéale pour grande famille. Superbe terrasse sur piscine, parfaite pour des repas conviviaux. Litreries vraiment excellentes.La maison est très propre et bien entretenue, un rafraichissement au niveau du papier peint et de la moquette serait à prévoir. De plus le réfrigérateur-congélateur est trop petit.Cadre idéal et tranquille pour des vacances reposantes et à 20 mn de Pau et 40 mn de Bayonne-Biarritz.

slightly disappointed with the no-air conditioning, had to leave early for this as my son is very sensitive with sleeping in hot conditions. Not a very nice smell under the sink where the bin is so we kept this cupboard closed. A wifi engineer turned up at 9:30am when we were all in bed. Pool was nice and big and a great DVD collection.

Owner's Response: We have an "Akor" Heat Recovery unit which provides a constant filtered air renewal and heat recovery.All doors and windows must be closed to keep the rooms cool in summer.We also have fans in the bedrooms.The downstairs bedroom is much cooler than the upstairs bedrooms. Our caretaker has been actioned to thoroughly clean the cupboard.

You are 1 km from an historic 16th century town which has modern facilities and an indoor market. We particularly enjoy the weekly street markets where people arrive from every nearby location to meet up and shop.

There is a theater, park and two attractive lakes, one of which has a sandy man made beach.
