Very Good

“Delightful 400 year old house with character and charm owned by two gracious landlords.”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2016

We stayed in this enchanting old house for 10 months from September 1st 2015 and loved every minute of our time in Salies de Bearn. The house, on a cobble stoned street, had all the appliances we needed, slept 8 on 3 floors and was within walking distance of all the shops, cafes and restaurants in this wonderful old town. Salies flourished in the Middle Ages when it was discovered that the town had been built on salt beds and there is still a lovely old Victorian spa where many folks from around the country come to take the cure.. The Pyrenees, Spain, the Atlantic coast and the Basque country are all within easy driving distance of Salies and historic towns such as Pau, Biarritz, Bayonne, St Jean de Luz, San Sebastian, Bilbao and Gernika are easily accessible. There is excellent hiking throughout Bearn and the Pyrenees and the skiing in Spain at Baqueria Beret was as good as anything in the Alps or the Rocky Mountains in the USA. The food and wine in the many excellent restaurants in Salies and the neighboring villages were first class and very cheap and the town boasted an fine public swimming pool, an international movie theater, a Thursday market and even a squash court. The local French were very friendly and accommodating and we made many French friends from all walks of life through twice weekly "conversationals" in both French and English. We highly recommend staying at 7 Rue Loume in Salies de Bearn but book early because such an attractive setting is always in big demand. Our stay in Bearn was one of the highlights of our lives - all made possible by our charming landlords.

“Wonderful House - Very Good Location”

Reviewed 24 Feb 2012

My wife and I spent 4 weeks in this house this past August and we were thoroughly pleased with the accommodation and the location. The owners, Mel and Anne lived in the house for 2 years before moving into another house nearby and they apparently left everything behind, because the house is fully equipped, including a large bookcase full of English language books. The house is very comfortable and the arrangement would be ideal for two families sharing because the top floor has another living/dining room, bedroom and full bath. We spent most our down time on the top floor which is very bright, looks out over the neighboring rooftops and has a balcony. We felt as though we were staying in a comfortable home, rather than a vacation rental property. The house is on a quiet pedestrian street, but has access for loading and unloading at the front door. As noted on the website, parking for one car is provided about 100 meters away. Mel and Anne were always available and helpful – they even provided us with beach towels, a beach umbrella and thermos (flask) at our request. The WiFi is reliable, has a strong signal and is secured by password. The weekly markets in Salies and neighboring towns are enjoyable and a good source of local produce, sausages, strawberries (the Mara des Bois strawberries are a must), French soaps, houseware, clothing, etc. The Salies market on Thursday has a stall with excellent rotisserie chickens and there is a great carry-out pizza shop around the corner. We were in town for the annual espadrille festival that was well attended and great fun, especially the international espadrille “throwing” contest (see photo). The town of Salies-de-Béarn has everything you could want including a refurbished and operating casino, a health spa and movie theater (French only). There are many shops, including the all-important boulangeries, just a short walk from the house. Most importantly for self-catering, there is a Carrefour supermarket at the edge of town, in addition the closer small grocery stores. The town location provides access by car for day trips to Biarritz to the West (less than an hour by toll highway or longer by country roads through pretty villages and towns) and to the Pyrenees to the South, both well worth multiple visits. For a shorter trip, there is a wonderful riverside outdoor café in Sauveterre-de-Béarn, within 10 km from Salies, with lots of comfortable chairs, including chaise lounges, and tables with umbrellas. Have lunch and then wade or even swim in the river or walk around an island with views of beautiful old buildings and the Pont de la Légende (see photo)

“A perfect house in a perfect location”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2012

The medieval house on rue Loume is a beautiful place to stay, and Salies is a very pretty town, perfectly situated for trips to the coast, the Pyrenean mountains and the rest of the Pyrenees-Atlantique. The house is everything you could want. It has four bedrooms, but didn't feel too big for just the two of us. It's beautifully decorated, Anne and Mel restored it themselves and have added so many lovely touches that it really is a home from home. We particularly loved having breakfast on the balcony in the sunshine. We'd also recommend the excellent market (Thursdays) and all of the boulangeries! We'll definitely be back soon.
