Situated in the picturesque rolling hills of the Chalosse, this lovely Maison de Maître (built in 1871) has been lovingly renovated to offer spacious and comfortable accommodation, including extended family holidays or groups of friends and families. It is ideal for unwinding and getting away from it all in a tranquil part of undiscovered rural France and for exploring family beaches and surfing on the Atlantic, visiting local market towns, wines tours and tasting, mountains and swimming lakes in Mugron, St Pierre-du-Mont and Orthez. Set in 5 acres, the house is surrounded by large gardens, terracing and private woodland with views over the local countryside. A variety of exotic trees and plants, including peach, walnut, cherry and weeping willows provide welcome shade on summer days with plenty of space for privacy or spending time together. The gardens provide a wonderful space to relax and unwind - we often stop in our tracks to watch local wildlife - deer, woodpeckers and butterflies.On the ground floor the spacious lounge and dining room (seating 8) is furnished with two comfy sofas and has original floor tiles and a wood-burning stove. The second sitting room again has original tiles, original large fireplace and new soapstone wood-burning stove for chillier evenings and two more comfy sofas. This leads on to the well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge-freezer, oven and new 5 ring gas hob with large kitchen table. Double doors open onto a large terrace with a canopied dining and relaxation area (comfortably seating 10, great for eating al fresco) with BBQ and plancha and overlooking the pretty Landais 'four' (ancient bread house). Upstairs you'll find four bright and airy bedrooms off the first floor hallway, comprising one king with private en suite shower room with toilet facilities and hand basin; two bedrooms with double beds and a fourth bedroom with two single beds. The family bathroom with bath, shower and hand basin is on the ground floor with a separate toilet next door and there is a further cloakroom with toilet and hand basin on the first floor. The house is attractively furnished with a diverse range of beautiful antiques and objects sourced regionally and throughout Europe. With stone and tile floors downstairs and renovated wooden floors upstairs, the house remains wonderfully cool in the summer months. Enjoy our new swimming pool - a 10x5m in-ground pool reaching water temperatures of between 20-28° (depending on outside air temperatures and time of year) with a salt water system reducing the use of harsh chemicals. The pool will be open from late May to mid October, equipped with a safety alarm and gated fencing to keep young children safe around the pool area. We have additionally just added a solar shower beside the pool. A large barn beside the pool provides shade for dining and games, including a new outdoor table tennis table this season. We provide plastic plates and glasses to use beside the pool. Previously an old farmhouse, we have interesting relics and rustic items on display. Also new in 2015 are our first two chickens. There are remote-controlled electric gates and plenty of space to park several cars safely on the driveway. Guests have also enjoyed using the large driveway to play boules/pétanque. Guests have priority use of the pool. It is occasionally used at other times of the day by the owners of Maison Pyron, a quiet professional couple, who stay in the adjoining grenier and are happy suggest places to visit, local restaurants, etc...The property is well-located for local amenities with local towns of Saint-Sever and Hagetmau only 5-10 minutes drive away. There are plenty of picturesque towns, markets, châteaux, fêtes and vineyards to be explored as well as numerous sporting and outdoor activities in the area, including an Olympic-sized pool and golf course in Hagetmau and the Pilgrimage route of St Jacques de Compostelle. We have 2 bicycles available for you to use during your stay.A Welcome Pack is included and access to free wi-fi, books and smart TV/DVD with UK TV channels via satellite & French TV via satellite (Orange). Bed linen and bath, hand and kitchen towels are provided as are pool towels.We provide an information pack with suggestions of where to visit, a guide to using the equipment in the house and an annual update of specific local events, summer and night markets, etc...

The Aquitaine region

Within an hour and a half's drive is the Atlantic coast with various seaside resorts including cosmopolitan Biarritz and Bayonne and numerous beaches such as Capbreton and St Jean de Luz, a beautiful resort with a fantastic beach, an amazing choice of restaurants and fishing port. A little further down the coast and you can tour the Corniche, an amazing stretch of coastline before reaching Spain. Venture further into Spain and visit San Sebastian to sample its internationally recognised cuisine and Spanish culture.

Further inland you can explore the many amazing villages and towns dotted along the Pyrenees (St Jean-Pied-de-Port, Gourette and Gavarnie are all well worth visiting), all providing opportunities to experience Basque food, customs and architecture.

Dax is the leading Spa Resort in France with 'Hyperthermal Water' and 'Peloide Mud' treatments, well-visited and respected by people from all over France. You can also try the Calecio spa in St Paul's for a real treat - there's a pool sauna etc...

With early Springs and late Autumns the region provide decent weather to enjoy being outdoors from April well into October. The climate is in general mild in the winter and we have a long summer here.

Saint Sever

Maison Pyron is located just outside the pretty village of Sainte-Colombe. With Hagetmau or Saint Sever within easy driving distance all the local amenities, supermarkets, shops, markets and restaurants can be found nearby. A visit to the Saturday market at Mont-de-Marsan is a must for its amazing range of local produce, including seafood and oysters, hams, cheeses and breads as well as fruit and vegetable.

Local delicacies include foie gras, duck confit and ham (Jambon de Bayonne) and you'll find a chocolatier in most local towns. At Eugenie-les-Bains you will find Michel Guerard's Michelin-rated restaurant serving delicious food in a beautiful place.

The main Pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela passes through Hagetmau and Saint Sever. Hagetmau boasts its own Olympic-sized pool with water slide, jacuzzi, outside terraces and golf course at la Cité Verte. You can play tennis in Sainte-Colombe and there are plenty of walks nearby taking in the spectacular views of the Pyrenées on a sunny day. You'll find lakeside beaches with swimming within 30 minutes at St Pierre-du-Mont or within an hour at Arjuzanx; also Lac d'Agès for walks and Lacs d'Halco at Hagetmau with pedalos and lakeside walks.

Local towns hold their own annual summers fetes/festivals and many have their own arena for the tradition of the course landaise, an ancient sport of bull-jumping, which involves no harm to the bulls.

Other events not to be missed include the night market in St Sever in August; the Jazz Festival at Marciac in early August and racing at Pau.
