Sumptuous very private house completely private pool with spring board and alarm, inner walled garden with large lawned area. Surrounded by fields and farms. Ideal for a getaway and sight seeing holiday as 'Tafiart' is on the border of four departments. Tafiart is a private 'Home' therefore just like being at home with sunshine, peace and quiet yet Pau and all the fun it holds is 30 minutes maximum away. Several great restaurants within 2-10 minutes away as are 27 Vineyards.
Tafiart is great for a group as there are several 'Break-out' areas for some peace and quiet. For the 'Fois gras' lovers, you're living in the region and Jurancon, Madiran, are on the doorstep for wonderful wine. Also Eugenie Les Bains, famous 5* health resort 10 minutes.
Great for Cyclists too as the Tour de France passes close by. Very popular with french cyclists around here
Flights and Location: Although I say the house is in Pyrenees Atlantiques it is right on the border of the Landes also. A great location for four regions! 25 minutes from Pau Airport, CityJet from London City low cost flights and Ryanair to Lourdes 45mins
Charles de Gaulle and Orly Air France at least 8 flights per day to Pau from 29 Euro.
Bordeaux and Biarritz BA and Easy Jets and Ryanair
Bergerac from Leeds Bradford Flybe sat to sat
Toulouse from Leeds Bradford with Jet2.
Toulouse/Manchester with Jet2 also
Perfect for a two family holiday, house parties and birthdays, Hen Weekends etc too
Bed and Breakfast is offered when the house is not rented in whole. B&B
New addition is a comprehensive set of Gym Equipment. Not 'Machines' but everything else, Step, TRX, Kettle Bells, Bar Bells, and Dumb Bells, and videos and info to with them.
Pau is a cosmopolitan city and very equestrian

We stayed for a week in late October. The property is excellent, spacious and full of character. The layout is such that the television can be on and not heard in the kitchen, or bedrooms. Staying in… More

"A wonderful home from home experience!"
We had a wonderful two week holiday in this converted farmhouse.
Every home comfort you would hope for is available making for a truly relaxed holiday experience.
We found ourselves losing whole days just hanging out by the pool, firing up the BBQ and chilling out completely.
The Location is a little off the beaten track but the accommodation and surrounding area is so beautiful it more than makes up for it.
There us plenty to do & see if you are happy to spend sometime in the car.

"Sun, tranquility and rustic charm"
stayed here with friends for a long weekend and had such a great stay. The farmhouse is absolutely beautiful with all the charm of a rustic farmhouse, but a little taste of luxury. The weather was beautiful and we spent most of our time relaxing in the garden, playing boules, croquet, cooling off in the outdoor pool and enjoying gin and tonics... The grounds are very pretty, without lots of space to enjoy in the privacy of walled garden. The surrounding area is agricultural, which makes it great for going on walks through the cornfields and is very peaceful. There are a few villages a short drive away which means it's easy to stock up on provisions, and also to experience some great local French food. Or if you want to travel a little further afield I recommend a drive to Pau, a historical city with beautiful classical architecture and many fantastic restaurants. If you're looking for a place to relax with friends or family, and enjoy rustic South West France, I couldn't recommend anywhere better. It was an absolute delight to stay here, and I hope to visit again very soon.

"A beautiful place and an unforgettable holiday"
Although it was April we were really lucky with the weather and enjoyed swimming in the large pool and cycling in the countryside. We ate out each night by candlelight at the huge table on the covered verandah. A brilliant farmhouse - so peaceful and extremely comfortable, would go again definitely.

"Idyllic holiday retreat."
I visited Tafiart for the first time in June this year for a 2-week holiday with family and friends. The property was offered on an entirely self-catering basis and, apart from visits from the gardener, we were on our own. The property is a effectively a walled garden, with the main house, additional bedrooms, utility rooms and garages surrounding a large and well-established garden, the center-piece of which is a deep and, in summer refreshingly cold, pool. While the main house has benefited from considerable investment recently the older parts of the building still retain their original charm. There is a very comfortable lounge area with wood burning stove, and a large kitchen with a family dining table and this serves as the heart of the house. There are also 5 bedrooms, of which 4 have at least their own showers or bathroom.
If you want to explore the local area, there are bikes available and the area is (relatively) flat.
The property is very well-located for local amenities, it is only a 5 minute drive into Sarron for the local supermarket. The Saint Mont vineyard is close by as well and the main village, Aire-sur-L'Adour is no more than 20 mins away. The main town, and closest airport, for the area, Pau, is about a 40 mins drive.
There are several good guide books in the property, including the owner's own guide to local bars, restaurants, and places of interest, built up over many years of visits.
Tafiart is a beautiful holiday retreat, ideal for larger groups, families and friends, and I'd happily recommend it as a place to visit.
