“picturesque and tranquil”
Reviewed 14 December 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Beautiful house, beautiful surrounding countryside. No one to be seen around apart from the occasional farmer and the local sheep. Nice and warm when we stayed in september, 25-30 degs, pool was a nice bonus.
House is very comfortable and nicely renovated. Pretty much every thing you'd need is included.
Easy travelling to San Sebastian, Biarritz and the pyrenees national park, and Pau airport is about 40 mins away.
highly recommended.

“A little bit of history in a wonderful tranquil setting.”
Reviewed 2 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

If you are looking for a little bit of rural France then look no further. The house itself is wonderful, maintaining it's rustic character but with modern touches such as Sky English TV. The rural location is very peaceful, just the odd tinkle of a cow bell in the distance, we spent many hours just lazing by the pool and enjoying the views. The farmhouse is ideally situated to visit many local attractions but a car is essential. The house was very comfortable, spotlessly clean with a very warm welcome. The accommodation is ideal for either a 'get away from it all' holiday or as a base to explore this beautiful part of France. We would certainly come again.

“It is indeed a pretty French farmhouse - we had a superb stay”
Reviewed 13 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

The farmhouse is appropriately named - it is indeed a pretty French farmhouse. Our stay was superb. The location is stunning. There was plenty to do just a short car journey away but we were happy to mostly relax and enjoy the local wine and food ! Rooms were well equipped and having the pool to enjoy was a bonus. We will definitely be returning and have already recommended the farmhouse to our friends. Thank you again

“Total peace and tranquility in stunning surroundings”

person found this review helpful

Our stay at The Pretty French Farmhouse was wonderful. On arrival we found everything spotless and beautifully kept, the welcome was warm and friendly and we were bowled over by the stunning views that surround it. There is plenty of exploring to do in the area but we mainly wanted to wind down and relax, taking in the scenery and complete peace and quiet. I would definately stay here again.

Management Response
25 Sep 2017
The road is single lane with no through traffic as it terminates at the house. Elderly or unfit guests may need to drive to more level areas to take walks. Many guests do enjoy taking cycle rides or walks from the house. No hornets nest were near the house but the occasional one does fly by at times. There are nets on most of the windows to deter insects from entering the house. There is a broom and dustpan and brush in the washing machine room next to the house. Guests are not expected to hoover. Outside is a cottage garden. The lawn is always mowed before guests arrive. There is no rubbish. The pool is always clean. Unfortunately these guests experienced storms and rain for most of their week and were unable to appreciate the natural beauty.
