We wanted a place that offered a chance to relax after a busy few years and La Source was all that we could have asked for. The appartment is very well appointed, comfortable and clean. Set in the beautiful countryside north of Pau, you are surrounded by nature, with rural scenes on all sides. Caroline and her pets are the perfect hosts and friendly advice and a good chat are always welcome, but never intrusive. La Source is well situated for day trips in any direction and you are spoiled for choice, whether you want vinyards, the sea, mountains or history. Our only regret is that we stayed just one week, but we can remedy that next time!
