Location description from owner

The Bearn region

This region is beautifully green and lush with gentle sloping landscapes that slowly reach the coast. Offering spectacular views, stunning architecture and plenty of activities to suit all tastes.Domaine-de-Lavie is in the Béarn region of south-west France. It is a wonderful area overflowing with historic sites, ancient châteaux, picturesque villages, lively markets and excellent cuisine. The fabulous towns of Biarritz, St-Jean-de-Luz, Bayonne and Pau are all within easy reach, as are several wine regions. San-Sebastián in northern Spain is a great place to go if you fancy going abroad for the day!

Salies-de-Bearn

There are activities galore for everyone all year round. As well as tennis, horse riding and fishing, there are 15 golf courses within an hour's drive for golfers, and miles and miles of golden sands on the nearby Atlantic coast for surfers. The magnificent scenery of the Pyrénées is an hour away for skiers, bird-watchers and walkers - or you could just stay at Domaine-de-Lavie and laze by the pool.Domaine-de-Lavie is close to the picturesque town of Salies-de-Béarn. The town takes its name from the Saleys - a small tranquil river which snakes past quaint 17th and 18th-century half-timbered buildings, some of which stand on pillars on the river banks.Salies-de-Béarn is known as the City of Salt. Every year, the Fête du Sel takes place during the second week of September. The whole town takes part in celebrating what they call "White Gold". Salt comes from a vast underground lake and is used to cure delicious Bayonne ham.The famous "thermes" in Salies are reputed to cure all sorts of ailments. The thermal baths are open to the public for beauty treatments, as well as for the healing properties of the spas.The weekly Salies market is the place to buy delicious fresh produce all year round, although many of the local delicacies can be sampled at local fêtes which are held throughout the spring, summer and autumn. The fêtes normally last several days and celebrate anything from "garbure" (the local soup) to "pipérade" (a Basque pepper stew) - all seasoned with Salies salt, of course!Salies-de-Béarn is thought to date back to at least 1500BC. During the Bronze Age, a group of people settled in a muddy swamp without knowing they were actually living in a salt marsh. Salies grew in importance when the "white gold" was discovered and subsequently extracted. In 1523, much of the town was destroyed by a fire started by Spanish soldiers. In the second half of the 19th century, the "thermes" at Salies became a major draw for visitors - and remain so today. The thermal waters are enriched with salt and minerals and are said to miraculously cure certain medical problems, notably rheumatic diseases.A local legend recounts the story of how salt was originally discovered at Salies. Hunters injured a boar which then managed to cross a muddy marsh before dying a little further on. When found, the dead animal's body had been completely preserved (by the salt) and was encrusted with salt crystals - and even today, salt from Salies is still used to cure the local Bayonne ham! From 4BC to 1BC, relics show that the Gallo-Romans definitely extracted salt at Salies - and the discovery of a pan for making salt dates back as far as 9AD. In 1841, salt works were built and salt-making in Salies finally became a major commercial business for the town.Things to seeEglise Saint Vincent (14th-century church); the River Saleys; the Place du Bayàà; Maison Montesquiut.Things to do"Fête du Sel" (2nd week of September); Musée du Sel (Salt Museum); the thermal baths.

“ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2013

What a little gem and a great find for us. Having taken our holiday in the same place in France for the past 12 years, yes, we're creatures of habit, we decided to take the risk and were a little anxious about going somewhere new. We need not have worried. We stayed for 2 weeks in our own little self-contained cottage which had everything you could wish for, fully equipped, a little like home from home really. Our little cottage has the best views over the rambling countryside and is just a couple of steps from the beautiful pool. Mary & Roger were great hosts and were there in case we needed anything. Mary was always watering the plants and Roger was always busy doing something in the vast gardens!! They know the area very well so could recommend a top notch restaurant for my partners birthday. The area itself is quiet and the little town which is very pretty is just over a 1.5 miles away. Nice restaurants and bars. All in all we had a wonderful time, wish we were still there ... I wonder who's staying in our little cottage now (lucky things :-))
