Convenient, clean and in a beautiful setting!
The property was clean and well maintained. The owner provided good customer service and kept in regular contact with us to ensure we were settled in. The house did not have Wifi which our teenage children found difficult. It was also quite hard to get Wifi in some places. As it was Wimbledon and we are keen tennis fans we were disappointed the satellite TV did not have a channel were we could see this. However, it was great to have tennis courts on site which we used regularly. The kids loved the pool, it would be nice though if there had been some seats available there. The house was well kitted out and the bedrooms were spacious, clean, and having towels was great. There was a BBQ which we used and the outside furniture was used heavily. There is a beautiful view from the back of the house. And as a family of 5 the washing line was a great bonus! There was a burger van parked overlooking the Atlantic where we enjoyed fantastic food with a great view. The pizza place, a bir further up the road was also really tasty and good value for money. There is a supermarket about 3 mins away in the car. There is a great walk along the coast into St Jean de Luz. Some more directions for visitors on locating this would be helpful for visitors as we only stumbled upon it by accident. The area is a great place to visit. Biarritz is a fabulous town and St Jean de Luz a great place to visit. Overall we had a great time.
Thank you for your feedback. Would you have preferred more information at the house or in advance.
I'm glad you had a good time.
Ideal touring base
The property lived up to its description, being comfortable and containing the facilities listed. It was clean and well looked after, a lovely quiet rear garden which looked across the country side to La Rhune - a large mountain seen for miles around. The property is on a family style complex with sports and play facilities, and is also ideally located for sight-seeing around the area. We visited beautiful villages, travelled up La Rhune on a small train, down caves at Sare, visited San Sebastian for a bit of spanish culture and many lovely beaches. The owners were very helpful at all times. We would have no hesitaton in recommending this property for a holiday.
A great base for sun, sand, surfing and sea.
A very well laid-out holiday home for a family. Clean and well equipped with added luxury of satellite tv. Three double bedrooms and two showers make this property suitable for family with children. Safe complex with enclosed gardens and complex pool and tennis courts easily accessible. The grounds of the complex are maintained to a high standard. Barbecue and garden furniture available for al fresco dining. Quiet surroundings with beautiful views of the Pyrenees. Local beaches and shops within walking distance. We had a few nice evenings eating at local restaurant in camping site. Good value and we could walk home. St Jean-de-Luz and Biarritz easily accessible by car. A trip to Spain is also recommended and less than 1 hours drive away.
Nice place, well equipped and peaceful
We stayed at this property for a week in June 2008. There were 5 of us - including my 18month old daughter.
The house is very well equipped and not having to take a high chair and travel cot was a big help. The garden and the barbecue (although we didn't use the barbecue) are very useful - we've rented other places in the past and having a garden (especially with a little one running around) is very helpful.
The property description was all pretty accurate. The restricted ceiling height on the mezzanine floor wasn't really a problem as we only slept up there. We did knock our heads a few times, but the blackout blinds in the velux roof windows were a big help - it was nice and cool up there even on the warmest days. There are two bedrooms (one with a small dressing area between the hallway and the bedroom) and one bathroom (WC, basin and shower)upstairs.
We didn't realise from the property description that there are a few cafes you can walk to. We walked to the local tabac (5min walk and their food is very good); to the small shop (opposite the tabac); to a cafe on the cliff top a little further away (probably another 2mins walk) and a quiet restaurant roughly another 2mins heading inland.
Parking was no problem at all. There is plenty of parking on the estate, so that shouldn't concern anyone. Other than to say hello, we didn't really speak to anyone in the neighbouring properties as it was so quiet and there weren't many people about. The pool was closed due to the time of year we went, but it looked well kept and the maintenance staff had obviously been working on it that week in preparation for it opening the following week.
We flew into Pau airport, and the drive took approx 90mins. We also drove to Lourdes for the day, which we were not expecting to do, but with it being so close, we took the opportunity. I think it took about 2.5 hours.
In summary -
sleeps 6 but note the headroom issue.
very comfortable and well equipped
amenites within walking distance more than adequate
carrefour hypermarket within 5min drive
peaceful and great views of the Pyrenees
Wonderful and relaxing holiday a Saint Jean de Luz
A view of the Pyrenees from the garden, a beautiful beach a 5 minute walk away, what more can you ask for? A fantastic, well-equipped house in a calm residential area with great facilities for everyone - shame we forgot our tennis rackets! A great place to stay and visit the beautiful Pays Basque. There is so much to see and do, we'll not hesitate to book again next year!
Une belle plage seulement 5 minutes à pied de la maison et une vue sur les Pyrénées en se reposant dans le jardin - une super maison, très bien equipée dans une zone tranquile et calme avec plein d'amenagements pour toute la famille - dommage qu'on ait oublié les raquettes de tennis! Cette maison est parfaite pour un sejour de découverte du Pays Basque - il y a tant de choses a faire on n'hesiterai pas de la reserver l'année prochaine.
Qué hay mejor que una vista de los Pirineos desde el jardin y una playa bonita a cinco minutos andando! Esta casa esta muy bien equipada en una residencia tranquila con la posibilidad de hacer muchas actividades para toda la familia. Fantastica para visitar el Pais Vasco y hay tanto que hacer que no dudaremos en reservar de nuevo el ano que viene.
