“Second Excellent Stay”
Reviewed July 22, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Our second year running here which is very positive in itself.
We had another great fortnight.
The house was immaculate again and had all the facilities described. Wow, do I like their fridge.
Good cooking facilities, washing machine etc. Pleasantly furnished and two nice bath rooms.
Lovely pool with great views of the mountains when the weather was good
Lovely quite garden surrounded by fields. Green Wood Peckers, Hoopoe, Red Squirrels, Black Shouldered Kite, Golden Orioles – wonderful for nature without being too insect ridden.
There are some good restaurants 20-30 mins away and 2 even had vegetarian menus.
Weather wasn’t as good this time but c’est la vie.
Tracey the owner is very contactable before and during the stay which is very reassuring.
Make sure this is the area you want to stay in, well recommended stay, although that means more people will book it! Damn!

“Wonderful house in stunning spot”
Reviewed March 22, 2017 for a stay in July 2015

Beautifully furnished, clean & well maintained, this house has everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday. The garden is lovely & has great views from every direction, even to the Pyrenees on a clear day. (We were so impressed with the outside space on arrival, it took us ages to even open up the house!) With temperatures in the mid 30s, our family spent hours in the pool which again is very well maintained. Although remote there are plenty interesting places to visit for a day trip - Pau, Tarbes, Hautacam & we even squeezed in a visit to San Sebastián. After many great self catering holidays in France over the years, this house is definitely our favourite yet.

“Must be good, the only house place in France we've re booked”
Reviewed March 21, 2017 for a stay in July 2016

Pretty immaculate facilities

Good sized rooms with everything you want

Lovely gardens and great pool with genuine mountain views

Quiet area, hardly any noise at night

Plenty of wildlife (non insect) which can be noisy at night, but we have ended up with some cracking wild life videos

The best , and incredibly medium priced, restaurant we have ever eaten in, in UK or France in Madiran - fantastic local wines

Some lovely villages 30-45mins away

Minor Gripes - Intermittent TV reception (seems common in France ) and we didn't get on with the electric pool cover so left it open

A recommended stay

“Wonderful rural holiday in stunning location”
Reviewed March 21, 2017 for a stay in May 2015

We had a wonderful holiday at Maison Acanthe, where 7 of us stayed for a family celebration being held nearby. The house is huge and very well equipped - we wanted for nothing and were even able to host a party for 20 family and friends without difficulty. The garden and pool are beautiful and very well kept. Views from the house and garden are stunning and we were able to enjoy them while eating our meals on the shaded terrace. This is the ideal property for an away from it all holiday in a beautiful rural location.

“The perfect peaceful hideaway gem”
Reviewed March 20, 2017 for a stay in July 2015

This house truly is a gem and was enjoyed by our large family including six adults and three children. We have been holidaying in France for the past 6 years and this is our clear favourite, for which we broke our rule and returned for a second visit.

It did not disappoint and Tracey and Mark, the new owners, have even managed to improved it!!

The property is very spacious and beautifully maintained and well equiped for a relaxing stay. The garden is extremely well kept with lots of different seating areas, all giving you fantastic views of the countryside and mountains beyond.

The pool is fantastic and we spent most of our days lazying around soaking up the sun.

When we could drag ourselves out we found lots of places to visit, from vineyards to the mountains and caves, to the Jazz festival in Marciac.

Tracey and Mark, the owners were very helpful and promptly replied to all our questions before we left making sure we had a superb holiday.

“Absolutely perfect in every way”
Reviewed March 20, 2017 for a stay in July 2016

We booked the house for its fantastic view and pool - both of which turned out to be even better than in the photos. House is well thought out, very clean, with great internet, BBC on the TV and a fridge that makes ice (something for everyone!) Fantastic area for cycling - wonderful views at every turn and absolutely no traffic. Could not have been better. Thank you Tracey and Mark
