Overview

About the property

6 bed (7 on request), 5/6 bath, 12 + (4 if children) people, views, walks,

Sumptuous very private house completely private pool with spring board, inner walled garden with large lawned area. Surrounded by fields and farms. Ideal for a getaway and sight seeing holiday as 'Tafiart' is on the border of four departments. Tafiart is a private 'Home' therefore just like being at home with sunshine, peace and quiet yet Pau and all the fun it holds is 30 minutes maximum away. Several great restaurants within 2-10 minutes away as are 27 Vineyards.

Tafiart is great for a group as there are several 'Break-out' areas for some peace and quiet. For the 'Fois gras' lovers, you're living in the region and Jurancon, Madiran, are on the doorstep for wonderful wine. Also Eugenie Les Bains, famous 5* health resort 10 minutes.

Great for Cyclists too as the Tour de France passes close by. Very popular with french cyclists around here

Flights and Location: Although I say the house is in Pyrenees Atlantiques it is right on the border of the Landes also. A great location for four regions! 25 minutes from Pau Airport, CityJet from London City low cost flights and Ryanair to Lourdes 45mins

Charles de Gaulle and Orly Air France at least 8 flights per day to Pau from 29 Euro.

Bordeaux and Biarritz BA and Easy Jets and Ryanair

Bergerac from Leeds Bradford Flybe sat to sat

Toulouse from Leeds Bradford with Jet2.

Toulouse/Manchester with Jet2 also

Perfect for a two family holiday, house parties and birthdays, Hen Weekends etc too

Bed and Breakfast is offered when the house is not rented in whole. B&B

New addition is a comprehensive set of Gym Equipment. Not 'Machines' but everything else, Step, TRX, Kettle Bells, Bar Bells, and Dumb Bells, and videos and info to with them.

Pau is a cosmopolitan city and very equestrian

About Craig Burton

My Name is Craig Burton, I'm originally from Yorkshire lived in France since 2005

Craig Burton purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Craig Burton chose Adour Chalosse Tursan area

Tafiart's location was the winner for me, I didn't want to by restricted to where I could escape to so therefore we are equidistant to Bordeaux, Toulouse, Biarritz, Pau and Tarbes and Lourdes on the doorstep and a good regional airport too.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Tranquility, gastronomic, culinary and a great escape, cycling, running, gym all here

Wonderful relaxing holiday in superb house and gardens.

  • 5 of 5

Having looked at the photos and read other reviews, we knew that we were going to stay somewhere very special, and we were not disappointed. It was well suited for our group, age range from 14 - 65 yrs from 4 families.

The bedrooms felt spacious and private, and there were plenty of larger areas where we could all spend time together. We made good use of the pool and had most meals outside on the terrace. We very much enjoyed being in the wonderfully cosy TV room with its jewel like colours one evening during a thunder storm as we watched amazing forked lightning out of the window.

Sue gave us a good welcome and was very helpful - (especially when we needed to make an urgent appointment for our dog with a local vet!).

We would love to return here and highly recommend Tafiart.

Fantastic, stunning house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing four days here in June. Even though the photos are WOW, the reality is even better: this is a stylish, ultra-comfortable, luxurious large house with a brilliant pool and jaw-dropping garden. It feels as if you are staying at a friend's gorgeous house. Everything is superb - and we really appreciated Sue the housekeeper for her welcome (bread, cheese and wine), help and tips. We relaxed the minute we arrived and it was very, very hard to leave. A special house in a great location for exploring the local villages, markets and vineyards.

Beautiful property with excellent facilities

  • 5 of 5

Had a brilliant stay the property is massive with all the facilities you could need the only downfall is the wifi is limited due to the remoteness but not a problem if you have data and are aware of it. A car is a must we went as a family of 10 but felt no need to go anywhere, there is a supermarket 15 mins away which has everything you need. Sue, the housekeeper is so helpful, friendly and could not have been better we arrived to food and had even thought of our 5 year old grandson with fruit shoots and a toy !! If you want to go away to chill and have plenty of room with a good size pool this is the place, would definitely consider returning. Great stay thanks

Beautiful and relaxed stay

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a gorgeous stay at Tarfait. 14 of us went to celebrate my 30th birthday and it could not have been better.

The farmhouse is simply stunning and the photos don't do it justice. Everything we could possibly need was thought of and accommodated for. Literally a home from home (only better).

Every room was beautifully decorated and furnished with home comforts. Craig has fantastic taste, from the unique art on the walls and ornaments in cabinets right down to the gorgeous bedding. Really well stocked kitchen and pantry with everything we needed to make some great meals.

Pool and garden was where we spent most of our time and it was perfect, beautiful lawn and gorgeous flowers and a perfectly maintained pool.

Car is required to get around but everything is pretty easy to get to with a local supermarket and bakery just a five minute drive. Lovely bike riding routes too and a great local restaurant 'Minvielle' - food there was fantastic and great value.

We will all return again and might make it a yearly tradition as we had such a fantastic and relaxed time. Can't recommend highly enough.

Thanks for a great stay Craig and Julie Ann, hope to see you soon.

Fabulously stylish, comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property, in a gorgeous spot. When we visited in July 2015 the surrounding fields were full of sunflowers - a sight I've always wanted to see. Some holiday homes you go to feel a bit unloved but this one is the opposite. Every little detail has been taken care of, meaning you get a holiday in somewhere that feels just like home. Can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Hi, thanks so much for your kind words. I presume people expect my standards but having stayed at rental properties myself I know this not to be true. You deserve things to be right, holidays are food for the soul! Craig

Fantastic Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful holiday here in August 2014 even though the weather was not great. The house is full of character and very welcoming; you feel more like you are staying at a friends house than a rental property. We were a large family party from 8 years to 85 years old and not sure how many would actually turn up (typical twenty year olds) but Craig was very relaxed that we were going to utilise every bed available and made sure we had plenty of bedding, towels, space, supplies etc which made you feel that nothing was held back in helping you to have a good time. Highly recommend.

There are tons of things to do for small people in the area and we have four mountain bikes for guests use.

Tafiart is located on the border of four regions all with their own specialities in food and feel different. from beaches to walking to bars, farms, lots of vineyards (27). Also lovely French farmers markets in all the towns and villages.

An hour in any direction you're in a completely different place. A day out 'Go Ape' to beaches and mountain walks.
