- Very Good
My husband and I were looking for somewhere to spend a peaceful few days in the sun with beautiful surroundings - this is exactly what we found. Apart from a minor quibble about the sofa being a tad uncomfortable, everything else was just lovely. The location is remote but not too far in a car to the local village, but worth it for the views of the mountains, hill and valleys. We were very lucky in that the weather was beautiful and made lying by the pool, which we had to ourselves the whole stay, along with a good book - perfection. The owner Pamela was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. She left a basket of goodies in the gite as a welcome and a couple of pages of useful information re local restaurants, shops etc. It is not the place to go to if you want to be within walking distance of civilisation, but if you want stunning and tranquil surroundings, it really cannot be beaten.
Owner's reply: Thank you Andrea and it was a pleasure to have you here!
“Peaceful, calm and relaxing”
Beautiful pool with lovely surrounding shrubs and the gorgeous smell of jasmine pervading the air. Could not see the Pyrenees from the gite as mostly clludy or bright and hazy. The photos on the website are quite old and the trees and shrubs on the property have grown considerably since then. Owner Pamela very friendly and helpful and the little gite was furnished with some tasteful antiques making it feel very homely. Very isolated but ten minutes drive from small town of Lembeye and 40 minutes from Pau.
Owner's reply: Hi Mary Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review! It was a pleasure to have you here as guests. Hope the rest of your trip home went well and kindest regards, Pamela
“Truly Delightful place”
The Gite is set in a lovely location with a stunning view of the mountains on clear days. Easy to find following owners directions from Toulouse airport. Car is essential though as it is in a very rural location. The gite had everything you need for your stay, and the owner was very helpful and friendly without being intrusive, and left us a lovely welcome basket of bread, wine, cheese and fruits. We only stayed for a few days and we would have liked to have stayed longer and taken advantage of the pool. Would recommend this place to couples wanting to explore the pyrenees region. in our 3 days we went to Biarritz, Pau, Lourdes and the mountain villages. Only negative was that the wi-fi didn't work on our i-phones, so no access to the internet, perhaps a booster in the gite would help.
Owner's reply: The gite now has its own livebox installed, which will solve the problem of WiFi access.
“perfect little house in beautiful location”
What makes this little house so special apart from the beautiful location and tranquil surroundings is the stylish way the owner has furnished this little house. It is comfortable and a real home for the holiday and not just a rental property. We absolutely loved the grounds, the marvellous pool and the lovely area., not to mention the amazing weather.
“A Haven of peace and tranquility”
We had a wonderful time at this pretty little cottage/gite surrounded by the most beautiful gardens. Pamela made us really welcome with a food basket and flowers in our cottage. The pool was amazing and, as we were the only guests, we had it all to ourselves, snoozing on our very comfortable beds and swimming in the pool was divine. There are loads of places to visit and we went to Lourdes, Biarritz and lots of pretty villages nearby. We certainly would recommend this as a very special place to visit
“Simply perfect for a quiet break away from it all.... but with the Pyrenees and coast close by”
Easy flight to Toulouse and hired a car to travel to the Gite. Warmly welcomed by the owner with a glass of bubbly each after she had directed us in. The Gite was perfectly equipped including a welcome basket of essential bread, cheese and a bottle to keep us going over the first night. The bed was extremely comfortable and the powerful shower was a delight to use. There was an excellent supermarket only a few miles away. The secluded swimming pool was just the right temperature and swimming under the stars at midnight was an awe inspiring experience for both of us as the lack of light pollution meant that there were literally thousands of stars in the sky. There were plenty of leaflets for local activities but we had already decided to go to the Atlantic coast at Biarritz for a day and also up into the Pyrenees for another day. Both were within easy driving distance and the TomTom satnav for Iphone worked faultlessly. The owner was readily on hand to answer any queries about the local area without being intrusive. WIFI was available but the signal was extremely weak in the Gite but we were offered the use of the main house terrace where the signal was considerably stronger. We could have easily spent a lot longer but sadly had to return home all too soon.
“Charming, comfortable, tranquil, pretty, atmospheric - a real 'find'.”
What a location. If you're looking for peace and tranquility in beautiful surroundings, yet accessibility to Pyrenees, Lourdes, Pau, Biarritz etc plus endless lovely local villages and vistas, then this is the place for you. A very comfortable and charming gite with unbelievable views of the Pyrenees, in the grounds of the most beautiful rose and jasmin bordered pool area and stunning main house/gardens. What a feast for the senses. Pamela made us feel so welcome in a very relaxed and natural way. We were sad to leave and will be back.
“Delightful ,Relaxing, Just What we Needed”
Having Chosen to spend our first Christmas away, we could not have choosen a more relaxing and peaceful place to stay. On arrival the Pam and David's greeting made us feel so welcome and for that time of the year very warm. The splendid view of the Mountains was such a lovely sight to wake up to each morning and we must now think hard about our summer vacation as it must be even more beautiful in the summer and the pool would be an added bonus.
“A beautiful rural property with excellent facilities and friendly hosts”
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Pamela and Davids gite. They were both very accomodating and helpful- booking restaurants, organising activities and even lending laptops and DVDs! The gite was comfortable and reasonably well equipped although perhaps cooking facilities could have been slightly improved. The terrace was a great place to have dinner and watch the stars. The pool area was beautiful and we had it virtually to ourselves the entire holiday. We loved relaxing with a glass of wine on the poolside beds. We were able to drive to both the Atlantic coast and the Pyrenees and would recommend both to any visitor. However, be prepared to drive for a least 1 1/2 hrs to both. The gite is in the heart of wine country too and a tour of the vineyards is a must. Our holiday was everything we had hoped for- lots of French food, wine, sightseeing and relaxing and I would recommend this gite to anyone looking to stay in a beautiful part of rural France.
“Lovely. Quiet and relaxing.”
Comfortable clean gite in a very pretty setting. A bit tricky to find. Nice pool with comfortable and stylish furniture. Pleasant and helpful hosts. Short drive to towns and villages for supermarkets and restaurants. Days out to spectacular Pyrennees about an hour and a half drive. Pretty rolling country side. Would recommend it for a quiet relaxing break. There are two dogs who are friendly and quiet but will guests pay guests a visit.
