Gite | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6

A newly refurbished Gite in 2011. A fantastic large salt water 11M x 5M swimming pool that has a light for a nightime swim or drinks by the pool. The pool is shared by the main house. You will have your own large garden/patio area - patio table and chairs and bbq). Oil radiators provided in the colder months.
The maison/gite is on the edge of the historic town opposite a large park which has tennis & basketball courts, football and rugby. The local US Orthez rugby team ground is here and they can often be seen training in the evenings. Matches on some Saturday usually about 10 euros entrance fee.
