Perfect gite at the entrance to a magnificent valley

  • 5 of 5

This was just what we were looking for - a small gite in a lovely old house situated in a good farming village with lots of local life, including cows with bells coming to be milked. The accommodation had lovely old, broad floor boards and had been appropriately equipped with all the practicalities we needed. The outlook was charming from the entrance balcony looking out across village gardens.

Mirella and Christian were very thoughtful and engaged hosts and told us lots about the locality as well as providing very good walking information. Not to mention local sheep's cheese and honey in the village.

The Ossau valley has easy car access and is wonderfully varied, from the lower hills to the very tops.

Can't recommend it too highly if you want rural quiet with easy access to glorious countryside from a homely base.

Beautiful Rustic Home Away

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful place in a small hamlet. The hosts are really nice and the location is peaceful and serene. Fantastic for walking or working away from the office. Two absolutely gorgeous labradors kept us company. The facilities are very good. There is a nice little kitchen area for cooking and the bathroom has a great shower. The bed is blissful! We were completely recharged by the time we reluctantly left. Thank you so much!

wonderful location for road cycling with valley rides, undulating roads and mountain cols on the doorstep. Also plenty of walking too

Great hosts who welcomed us warmly.

A definite recommendation to others...just don't go when we might want to go!

well appointed gite, very comfortable with plenty of space.

Great bed and bathroom facilities.

Couldn't fault our stay.

Vacances au calme dans un écrin de verdure

  • 5 of 5

Un gîte rustique, confortable et décoré avec goût. Un cadre verdoyant et reposant. Une localisation idéale pour découvrir Pau et la vallée d'Ossau. Nous avons apprécié l'accueil chaleureux et discret de Mirella et Christian.

A ne pas manquer : Le petit train d'Artouste, les randonnées autour des lacs de la vallée d'Ossau, la visite de Pau et la dégustation du Jurançon...
