Houses in Maubourguet and Gites – Holiday Lettings - Holiday Rentals Maubourguet
We want to say a huge thank you to Ron, Debi, James and Lucy for a wonderful holiday. The Gite was spotlessly clean and well equipped, bedding and towels were super fresh and fluffy and the showers were amazing. The owners are on hand to give advice about places to visit and to ensure you get the most out of your holiday but are discreet so as not to disturb you. The location is ideal on two counts:- It is quiet and therefore you can relax in peace and quiet and safely cycle to the supermarket and tennis court. (making sure your children get squirted by the farmers water cannons of course) It is 40 minutes from Lourdes which is a really interesting day out. Cauterets is about 1 hour away and is a hidden treasure in the Pyrenees (Be sure to take warm clothes especially if you take the ski lift as it gets quite chilly) Biarritz is a bit further afield but well worth the drive especially if you like to surf/body board. We also fitted in a Tapas lunch in Spain (Les is just over the border and the views on the drive there are amazing) The pool was a particular hit with our children as it was a good size and when they had enough there was a lovely garden to play in. (I best not mention the lawn mower) Excellent value for money and would certainly recommend it to a friend. …
Holiday home rental - Monfaucon with Swimming Pool
Time to relax in paradise!
If you want to escape from the excesses of everyday life and totally relax, then this is the place to come! We have been coming here for the last 8 years and doing just that. Stock up with tasty fresh provisions from almost daily markets and nearby supermarkets. Purchase some excellent Rose Wine (and red and white) from the nearby vineyard at Plaisance. Then sit back and look out at the magnificent views of rolling countryside and the Pyrenees looming out of the haze on a clear day, from this sympathetically renovated farmhouse. Enjoy al fresco lunches, under an open plan shelter, protected from the midday sun. Then cool off in the newly added pool. There is no reason to venture beyond but if you do, try some of the local restaurants; the restaurant in the middle of Bassoues is our favourite (13e per person for a 4 course menu du jour, wine included! What is there not to like?). You can be in the heart of the Pyrenees in just over an hour where there is magnificent walking, outdoor pursuits (luge at Hautacam), spend a relaxing afternoon in the Spa Pool at Cauterets or just wander round this old town and the other old and quaint towns in the area. If all this is not enough, the Atlantic coast with its sandy beaches and crashing waves for surfers can be reached in a couple of hours – spend a whole day there and stop at one of the numerous restaurants to have a dinner of locally caught fish on the way back. Why would you want to look further? We don’t! Roll on next year and hopefully another return to paradise. …
