Converted farmhouse-barn that provides spacious, informal holiday accommodation. The tranquil surroundings and easy pace of life guarantee a very relaxing break.
In our opinion, this is an excellent venue for young families:
> Heated (and fenced) swimming pool
> Lots of safe, outdoor space for playing
> Home cinema for when some 'downtime' is needed!
> Plenty of equipment/toys available for little ones including complete baby kit
The holiday cottage adjoins the owners' (young family of five) accommodation. In the past this has proved advantageous for guests:
> Trained chef available for occasional meals - take a night off and bring Vincent in for a superb meal & wine selection
> Kids to play with - they are bi-lingual and it's a chance for your kids to pick up some French
> Help is on-hand in case of any maintenance issues
The pool and most of the grounds, apart from the area outside the cottage entrance, are for guests' exclusive use.

|Further details indoors|
Entrance via a covered veranda sheltered by vine leaves which provides an escape from the midday sun and a peaceful spot for your holiday reading!
At the end of the spacious, stone-tiled hallway is an open-plan living area. To one side is the dining area (seating for 10-12) featuring original wooden beams; to the other side on a lightly raised level is the lounge area with two sofas, flat screen TV and dvd player. The decor is a blend of rustic simplicity and contemporary style.
Also on the ground floor is a fully equipped modern kitchen, with stainless steel range and all essential appliances (dishwasher, washing machine, etc).
One double bedroom is on the ground floor, with a large window overlooking the garden and fields beyond - it's very peaceful! This room has an adjacent private bathroom with bath, shower and WC.
A wooden staircase leads to a further four bedrooms (three doubles and a twin room), all with with modern en-suite shower rooms. Every room has original beams, wooden floors and is decorated differently, making excellent use of the different layout and natural light.
|Further details outdoors|
From the veranda a small path leads to the swimming pool. Fenced off for security, the pool is heated, making this a good choice for young families, particularly during the early summer months. The pool features sand-filtration (rather than chlorine). This is a more natural system and much better for the skin, throat and eyes. There is a handy outdoor wc and changing room by the pool.
The garden is about one acre, mostly lawned and fenced all around, mostly hidden by shrubs and hedge. There is plenty of room for football, badminton, etc.
A BBQ is provided for alfresco meals on the covered terrace (ask Vincent to supply the catering!).
The views beyond the garden overlook the fields all around. It really is incredibly peaceful; at night the stars shine very brightly here too!
Countryside, rural location yet close to the coast. There are just a handful of other dwellings in sight and the village centre of Orx (good restaurant) is 2kms.
It's little more than 10 kms drive inland from the seaside resorts of Capbreton and Hossegor and 20-30 minutes north of Biarritz and Bayonne.
It is a place to enjoy both the beautiful sandy beaches and yet have a pecaeful countryside base to retreat to. Good road, rail and air connections locally.
