About Sue Roberts

I manage an action sports retail chain and Sue is a teacher, we have three children. We have always enjoyed this area as it is a real get-away and offers a variety of experiences. We are a family who love skiing and trekking in mountains and unlike the Alps the Pyrenees is still very unspoilt. The purchase of the house has been an adventure and we love it when friends come to stay and we can introduce them to white water rafting or just hanging by the pool. We like entertaining and having good time with our friends so our aim was to make the house comfortable and easy to maintain. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Stuart and Sue.

Amazing house and wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with family and friends. Incredibly well equipped and beautiful location. We used the house as a base for skiing in the local resort La Mongie. Easy to find, easily accessible from the airport. All in all a wonderful house. We will definitely be back!

Would recommended this house to any groups looking to have a fun but relaxing time in south west France!

A stunning house with beautiful gardens

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a weeks holiday in this superb house. The spacious accommodation felt homely and was so well equipped for the 12 of us that it felt like staying at a friends! The stunning views of the Pyrenees and the fabulous pool never failed to impress and the games room was a welcome addition for our group which were made up of a range of ages. The location is peaceful and provides access to some amazing walks, but is near enough to towns and attractions that we could all find something to do.

I would highly recommend this house for a holiday and will definitely be returning.

Superbe villa avec belle vue

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions deux couples, quatre enfants et deux chiens.

Tout était nickel.

Maison avec beaucoup de place. 5 chambres, don une pour les enfants avec quatre places, des lits pliables supplémentaires,... Bref, plus de place que ce qu'il nous en fallait!

Propriété avec beaucoup d'espace, toute clôturée et bien entretenue.

Description de l'annonce conforme à la réalité.

Petit bémol pour la piscine non chauffée, mais franchement raisonnable en bonne saison.

A recommander!!!

The beautiful beaches of south west France are less than 2 hours drive away.

Hossegor is a great surfing town (a favourite with our kids) and the lovely towns of Biarritz and St Jean de Luz are well worth a visit.


Ther are a number of airports within an easy drive from the house, Pau ( 45 mins) Lourdes ( 30 mins) Biarritz (1 hour 45 minutes), and Toulouse airport (1 hour 15mins) Regular flights from Britain are available from Stansted, Manchester, Birmingham and Gatwick airports. Use of a car is essential for a holiday in Castelvieilh.


The major local towns and cities to Castelvieilh are Tarbes, Lourdes, Pau, Toulouse and Biarritz on the southern west coast of France, near to the spanish border. You can take a leisurely drive down to the town of Tarbes in 15 minutes or be skiing in the nearest ski resort of La Mongie within the hour.
