Charming stone gite in a quiet village. 2 bedrooms and a swimming pool.
We are situated in a Béarn village between the towns of Navarrenx (11km) and Oloron (14km). There is a bakery and a pharmacy at the edge of the village and the nearest supermarket is in Navarrenx. The local area has much to offer including walking, cycling, canoeing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, fishing, climbing, golf and skiing.
The converted barn offers high quality, self-catering holiday accommodation for both summer and winter breaks. The barn has been renovated in a contemporary style equipped with everything to make your French holiday perfect! The living area is open plan with a large corner sofa, a dining table and chairs as well as a TV, DVD player and stereo. The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric hob and oven, a dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine, kettle and toaster. There are two large bedrooms located on the first floor, one with a king-size double bed and the other with twin beds and a sofa bed. Each bedroom is en-suite with a walk-in shower, toilet and wash hand basin.
Set within a private landscaped garden with a patio/BBQ area, there is also a swimming pool 8m by 4m. The pool and sun loungers are located in a secure landscaped garden accessed directly from the gite garden and swings are located in the orchard. There is secure parking next to the owner’s house at the rear of the gite.
Note: if the owners are on site they will also have access to the swimming pool. Contact the owners for more details and flexible changeover days.
