“Relaxing and secluded with stunning views”
Reviewed June 10, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The house was perfect, very comfortable, clean and well equipped. It stayed nice and cool inside even though we had 37 degree in May! The pool was just right for us and provided great relief from the heat. Location is quiet and secluded.

A short drive away, there are some very nice restaurants and local shops in the nearby villages. Made a great base for walks and cycling. The scenery and local countryside is beautiful.

The owner Heather, was friendly and accommodating and offered us plenty of information about the local area.

All in all, a very pleasant house. Would definitely book again.

“Rural retreat”
Reviewed August 16, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The location is perfect for us but maybe too rural for some, a good distance from a normal road, at the end of a small farm track. You have to drive through some farm buildings to get to it! Spectacular views, very quiet, with only sheep for neighbours. The house is spacious but, unfortunately the shower in the en-suite was not working so 6 of us had to share the bath shower, so mornings were sometimes frought, hence the 4 star rating, otherwise it would have got 5 stars. The pool was great and not small.

The house is rural, quiet and peaceful but you can drive or cycle 3 miles in both directions to lovely restaurants (5), Barcus also has a small supermarket, charcuterie, boucherie, boulangerie. Navarrenx, Oloron and Mauleon are nearby for shopping. The farm and neighbours down the hill are delightful and there are no problems driving through the farm buildings.and up the road to the house. Unfortunately the en-suite shower had a small leak underneath which the plumber could not fix without taking the whole unit out so holidaymakers were advised that week to refrain from using it. All was fixed afterwards.

“Fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Delightful house, beautifully restored and furnished, it felt relaxed and homely but all essentials were in place. Pool much appreciated after a busy day. Wonderful location with total peace and tranquility, however it is very rural and a long drive to get to anywhere else.
The only issue was the bed in the main bedroom which was comfortable but too small for 2 adults who are just under 6 ft tall so we had to sleep crunched up!
The directions to the house were excellent but we were pleased our sat nav found it for us as there are a lot of narrow, windy roads to negotiate, for us that added to the fun and feeling of getting away from it all. We loved it!

Thanks for your great review. Sorry you were scrunched up! The two doubles are standard double size but they are vintage (not the mattresses!) thus have headboards and endboards which does mean that tall people cannot let their feet 'hang over' the end of the bed.

“We had an idyllic, relaxing stay in this charming farmhouse in a magnificently beautiful area of France.”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The area in and around Barcus was lovely and serene. We hiked on the GR65 every day and came back to the farmhouse in the evening. The house was spacious and comfortable with everything that we needed. We relaxed in the pool after hiking and then cooked in the well equipped kitchen. There were area markets and some good restaurants nearby that enabled us to eat very well. The farmhouse is at the end of a road, surrounded by sheep and cattle farms and was very quiet and private.

“picturesque and tranquil”
Reviewed December 14, 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 October 2, 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 March 13, 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
