Oriental House and Garden

Overview

This is situated just a 15 minute drive from Biarritz Airport and 1 hours drive from Pau Airport. Close to all the sandy beaches of the Pays Basque and Landes. Within easy reach of the stunning Pyrenees and 40 minutes drive from beautiful San Sebastian in Spain. The Pays Basque has a rich culture and heritage and a wonderful cuisine. Medieval Bayonne and chic Biarritz are full of cafes and restaurants. The Market at St Jean de Luz is considered to be one of the best in the region. Elegant Bordeaux is easy to visit, just a 2 hour drive away. There are lots of vineyards (Rioja, Jurancon and Bordeaux) to be visited as well as caves, chateaux and churches. In the summer there are various festivals in the locality. There is a lively Arts scene. There is something for everyone in this area of France. Your stay could be very busy or you may feel happy just to chill on the Domaine in the attractive grounds.
The property is a delightful, stylish oriental 'cottage' set within a large 7 hectare estate situated on the river Adour close to Bayonne. The location is semi rural as it's on the edge of Bayonne, conveniently placed for the motorways A63 and A64, train stations and the airports of Biarritz, Pau and Bordeaux. The cottage has two en-suite bedrooms on two floors, a living area and a fully equipped bijou kitchenette with oven, dishwasher, fridge freezer etc. It has a veranda, with BBQ, overlooking it's private lake, pagoda and Japanese garden. It has satellite TV, DVD player and an open fire. There is a double en-suite bedroom and a single en-suite bedroom. If you are wanting accommodation for 4 people a camp bed can easily be added for you. We have cots available for babies. (We have had very happy children and babies staying in the house, but it's NOT suitable for small toddler-aged children as the lake and river could be dangerous).
The main house has an outdoor pool which you are welcome to use by arrangement with the manageress. Laundry facilities are also available as is WiFi. All bed linen and bath towels are provided. The main property is gated thus guests are secure and safe. It is a unique and special place with lots of charm.

Summary:

Charming oriental style house with it's private lake and garden set on the Adour river, in the middle of a 7 hectare property. Close to beaches, the Pyrennees, Biarritz and the border of Spain
