A lovely, well-equipped property, as described. Interesting area and lots to do; also relaxing.
We had a lovely 2 weeks in late Sept./ early Oct. weather was good; even got into the pool a couple of times. The house had everything we needed to both be active and relax. It’s an interesting area and the Pyrenees are beautiful for hiking and biking. Nothing was crowded.
I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed la Maison des galets and the Pyrenees. It is true, September is always a beautiful time to come and the weather is always great in september , we call it, l'été indien .....
So thank you for choosing la maison des galets and i wish you both a great year ahead...
Peace in the Pyrénées at la Maison des Galets
We had a lovely stay in Escou, a quite village not far from Oloron-Sainte-Marie (supermarkets, restaurants,...) and at cycling distance from Ogeu-les-Bains (very nice bakery, smaler supermarket).
The location is not far from: Col d'Aubisque, Col du Soulor, Col de Marie Blanque, Col des Bordères, Plateau de Castet (MTB),... Ideal location for cyclists.
The pool is very nice, especially in the afternoon when you can relax in the shadow of the roses. The garden is spacious, with lots of roses, hibiscus,...
The house itself is a little bit dark, but thanks to to small windows, you can keep it cool when needed.
Almost every day we cooked in the kitchen, it was fun to do!
So, yes, we had a great holiday.
Thank you Isabelle, Mady and Pierre
Enjoying Béarn area in a lovely farmhouse close to Pyrénées
We spent three weeks in the quite village of Escou, enjoying good weather and the nice pool. The house is spacious, well renovated and stays cool during warm days. Activities in the area are multiple and you won't get bored. Pau is just 35 minutes away and 10 minutes for Oloron Saint-Marie. A bit further but still possible in a day trip, we went to Biarritz twice to enjoy the waves of the Atlantic. In Béarn we loved all the local products from the farms in the surroundings: cheese, yogurt, honey,... and of course, the good bread of the bakery in Ogeu-les-bains, 5-7 minutes away. All in all, some very good vacations for all of us (without mentioning the Football World Cup in Pau, together with 20 000 others...). We definitely recommend this place.
Great stay at La Maison de Galets.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property which is very comfortable with a lovely garden and pool. From the windows at the back we could see the Pyrenees foot mountains on a clear day. Luckily the weather was very good and we had great walks in the Pyrenees. It was a wonderful holiday. Thanks Isabelle.
Thank you very much, i am very glad to know that you enjoyed la maison des galets and the Pyrenees. It means a lot to us. Thank you.
I wish you all the best .
Enjoyable stay at Maison des Galets
We had a very enjoyable stay at Maison des Galets. It's a charming old property full of character. It was spacious and well equipped and very comfortable, with internet as a bonus. The house has a large garden and a pool and is very private and peaceful.
It's in a very small village so shops are a few miles away in the nearby village of Ogeu, although there's a lovely cheese specialist within walking distance.
The Pyrenees are spectacular although if you want to go on the small train its best to book in advance. Lourdes was a lot better than we anticipated and the castle there is interesting.
There are some spectular caves at Grottes de Betharram which is not too far away, well worth a visit.
We'd certainly go back as there was far too much to get round to seeing in a week.
Kathy, Terry & Bethan
Thank you so much for your kind message, it does mean a lot to me to know that your holiday was a success, and you enjoyed staying at la Maison des Galets. As you said there is a lot to do in the Pyrenees and a week goes very fast. So, it will be my pleasure to welcome you again in the near future at la Maison des Galets. Once again thank you .
All the best to the family
Our family of four spent a relaxing two weeks at La Maison des Galets. The house is situated in a peaceful village with a secluded garden and great views of the Pyrenees.
Full of character with WIFI and a well-equipped kitchen, the house is the perfect base to explore the region.
A trip to the Grottes de Bétharram, driving up the Col du Tourmalet with lunch at Le Schuss and the Fiestas de San Lorenzo in Huesca (Spain) are all highly recommended days out.
Coupled with picturesque walks around Escou, lazing by the pool and eating our evening meals on the sun dappled patio made for a fantastic family holiday.
The owners have provided a wealth of information on the local area and Maddy the house keeper was a very friendly and patient with my schoolboy French!
Thank you so much for your review we are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed la maison des galets and the mountains the Pyrenees .
Wish you all the best
Alle porte del paese c’è un negozio di formaggi dove vendono il famosissimo formaggio Brebis, fatto da produttori locali. Da provare assolutamente, il proprietario è molto cordiale. Il paese di Ogeu, a 4 km di distanza, ha uno dei migliori panifici della regione. La specialità del posto è il vino Jurancon, di fama mondiale. Noi preferiamo il secco mentre il fruttato è ottimo come aperitivo. La frazione di Jurancon si trova a soli 15 km di distanza sulla strada per Pau. Oloron ha supermercati, banche, farmacie con alcuni buoni ristoranti di qualità. Pau è un po' più raffinata con ampi viali e zone commerciali. All’ufficio turistico potete prenotare le escursioni in kayak sul fiume. La nostra attività preferita è quella di noleggiare un asino o due, caricarli con le nostre tende e cibo e vagare nel deserto per un’escursione di 2 o 3 giorni. Chiedete "les Petits pas" presso l'ufficio turistico. Vi forniranno passeggiate sia con guida che senza.
