Maison Berchon is in a quiet location, yet only 30 minutes from historic Pau and world-famous Lourdes. So, there's plenty of sightseeing if you tire of relaxing in the garden or by the pool. Want to be even more active? Take your pick from golf, rambling, horse-riding, fishing and water sports - or, in winter, skiing, with both Cauterets and Gourettes just an hour away. Shopping in Nay's busy market is a delight and you can walk to the local baker for the all-important breakfast croissants.<BR><BR>The sitting room balcony overlooks the private garden, where there's plenty of space for children to play, trees to give shade and an area for al fresco eating. With 2 double and 2 twin bedrooms, the house is ideal for a large family, two smaller ones or a group of friends. The house has been newly renovated from to... Read more

I stayed for a week with a group of friends and would definitely recommend it. The house is beautiful, spacious and extremely well-equipped, and Tony and Yolanda are brimming with local knowledge and suggestions of things to do, even if we didn't often venture farther than the pool!

Fantastic, well equipped house in the quiet, relaxing setting of Nay. The pool and garden provide an environment perfect for relaxing. Nay itself is a lovely little town to have a look around, I recommend visiting the market. Overall, a lovely stay at Maison Berchon - thank you Tony and Yolanda.

Lovely old house, with modern bathrooms, a delight to stay there and the spiral staircase was beautiful. The pool was a bonus that we used nearly every day as it was so hot. It was a home from home, from handy basic ingredients in the kitchen, to the good supply of books and games. Great hosts, very friendly and helpful...

About the neighbourhood
Nay is a bastide (Medieval new town) dating back to 1302 and you can still see parts of the original walls. Take the time to visit the lovely 15th century St Vincent church and Renaissance Maison Carrée in the centre of town and the unique Musée du Beret. For arts lovers, the Minoterie, an old industrial warehouse converted into studio and exhibition space, holds regular art shows – as does the Maison Carrée, which also has exhibits about the local area, including its rich industrial heritage. Maison Berchon itself was built by one of Nay's major 19th century textiles magnates.<BR><BR>The Gave de Pau runs through the town and offers lots of opportunities for fishing, riverside walks and water sports.
