Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful holiday we have had. Your house (and pool!) is so beautiful and so well equipped that we didn't want to come home! We loved Pissos - the boulangerie, the pizzaria, the creperie, and the surrounding area... All just lovely! Thank you so much. The very relaxed Harrison family 2013

What a great house! Well kitted out in the kitchen, good sized pool and good internet link. We were two families with teenagers and toddlers, good shops and restaraunts in the village and less than an hour away from the beach. Will definitely consider returning again sometime.
A wonderful, relaxing holiday
We had a fabulous family holiday in this lovely, well equipped property. It's beautifully furnished, with lots of character - and a fantastic collection of books to dip into. Pissos village had everything we needed, and there's a large supermarket about 15 mins drive away. We had great fun shopping for souvenirs and exploring the beaches at Bicarrosse and spent long, lazy days relaxing in the garden by the wonderful pool. In fact, we enjoyed it so much we've booked to return this summer. We can't wait!
A beautiful property
A beautiful, spacious property, that is very well equipped. The pool was fabulous and very well maintained. Pissos is an attractive village with enough facilities that you don't have to drive elsewhere to shop or eat out, although the surrounding area is worth exploring. We would recommend this property for a relaxing family holiday.

From the Owner
“The house offers the opportunity to get away from it all, with all the advantages of being in easy walking distance of amenities in the local village. The house has been sympathetically restored over a number of years. Whilst modernising the house we have kept as many original features as possible, including wooden floors, original Basque tiling in the entrance hall, fireplaces and French shutters. The pool is 10x4 metres and has roman steps for easy access. Our neighbours are kind, gentle people, always willing to help us, family and visitors practice speaking French.”
