From the Owner

The area offers us everything with its micro-climate in winter to many days of summer sun and comfortable climate all year round. The mountains for skiing in winter, the beaches in the Pyrenees Atlantic in summer and rural living are perfect for everyone's taste. This friendly area with its beautiful countryside is perfect and Spain is just an hour away where we lunch with friends at weekends and take in the Spanish mountain views, cuisine and lifestyle.

The vineyards of St. Mont and Madiran are a short drive away where wine tasting can be sampled. Local wines, cheeses, saucisson and fois gras are just some of the produce offered at the local market on a Tuesday morning. Maubourguet also hosted a stage of The Tour de France in 2014 and The Tour will continue to pass through nearby towns in future years.
