Review added by Joy, August 2014



"We had a brilliant holiday thank you. The children especially enjoyed the pool and getting them out was the hardest part of the holiday! We found Richard very friendly and helpful, going out of his way to help or give advice on walks, where to eat etc. We found the villa very clean and comfortable with everything we could ask for to make our holiday enjoyable. We also had some extra visitors including bats, lots of lizards and even a baby deer in the garden one morning! We would certainly recommend the villa to friends and family."

"We stayed in Villa Tamerza in February to make use of the superb location as a base for a skiing holiday. Our party of ten found the house to be extremely comfortable, warm, spacious and fitted to a very high standard. Everything you could need has been catered for, our children especially enjoyed the Games Room on a wet afternoon and the brilliant selection of DVDs kept us all entertained in the evening! The beds were the best we have ever slept on in a rental location and very much appreciated after a long day on the slopes. We would not hesitate to highly recommend Villa Tamerza for a holiday."

Location

From the Owner

We love visiting France for its culture, great scenery and we particularly love mountains and walking. We visited the Hautes Pyrenees recently and immediately fell in love with the area. It is traditional France, with many old customs, and the people are very friendly. On our first day in the area we met a French farmer bringing his sheep down from the mountains on the main road. The Pyrenees mountains themselves are awe inspiring and a wonderful back drop to the many walks you can do in the area. We have always wanted to buy a property in France and we knew when we visited Bagneres de Bigorre in the Pyrenees that we had found the perfect place for our home in France. We hope that you will love the place as much as we do.

Facilities

From the Owner

The main attraction of Villa Tamerza when we decided to buy the house was that it was situated in the countryside yet was only 5 minutes from Bagneres de Bigorre with all its facilities, restaurants and a place to buy your croissants in a morning. Of course the fact that you can wake up to views of the Pyrenees mountains each day is incomparable. The house has its own pool and tennis court, plus is an excellent base for cyclists (it is on the main Tour de France route and is a mecca for cycling), which were added bonuses not only for ourselves but also for our guests. You can quickly drive to many great scenic areas in the region as you are already close to the mountains not only for walking but also for skiing and many other outdoor activities.
