Short stay in south France

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful French character farmhouse situated in a picturesque village. Clean and well kept property, perfect for a quiet getaway. Friendly neighbours. Local amenities about 15mins away. Main attractions like Biarittz and the Pyrenees about an hour away. Looking to go again soon.

frist french holiday*

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to France and I just loved it. Party consisted of Grandparents, son, wife & kids x 2.The house was beautiful, well furnished, clean and very comfortable The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of everything even when we got together with my others son's family of 4, total of 10 people. There were plenty of facilities - sun loungers, BBQ equipment, beach towels, games, books and the godsend of all, a dishwasher! The beds were comfortable and the linen clean with plenty of bedding and lots of coat hangers. The house was next to a working farm whose workers waved and greeted us most days. The peace and quiet was much appreciated. The instructions and directions were easy to follow. Tony the owner was very chatty and informative and has a clear love for the place. The only drawback were the flies which I believe are an intermittent problem. It is easy to get to the beautiful Biarritz coast, it took us about 50-60 minutes. The Pyrenees were just as spectacular and slightly further. We were lucky enough to catch a magnificent firework display in neighbouring Navarenx on our last night which seemed a fitting end to a lovely holiday. Just wished we could have stayed longer
