Gite Alexandre was built in the1800's & as we holidayed in France ourselves when we renovated it we thought of everything we had wanted when we rented a Gite. So as you enter there is a fitted kitchen/diner with washing machine, Lounge to the right with free to air English & French TV, downstairs loo. Upstairs there is a double bedroom with shower en-suite & twin room shower en-suite.

We all loved this gite, it has 2 good sized bedrooms with en-suites, and everything is clean and well maintained. The pool is a good size and there are lovely views. Its set in a peaceful rural area. We visited in early May and were a bit unlucky with the weather, we had an unusual amount of rain, but still found plenty of interesting things to see and do. Pau is very nice and we enjoyed visiting the Pyrenees and Lourds. Bridget and Keith are lovely, both very helpful, friendly with a good deal of local knowledge.

Management response:

Great having you stay. Thanks

Keith and Bridget are the most hospitable hosts - they cannot do enough to ensure your comfort and enjoyment of their beautiful gite and farmhouse. The location is delightfully quiet and peaceful, with amazing views of the Pyrenees. Bridget produces lovely meals and Keith keeps your glass constantly full. They are very kind and helpful particularly in the event of any misadventures e.g. dropping your motorcycle and needing help with bike collection & repair - there's a very helpful Suzuki dealer in Pau!

Management response:

Many thanks for the lovely review, glad you enjoyed your stay.

About the neighborhood
We are 20mins from Pau with it's lovely Chateau & Park. We are 1hr 40 from the Spainish border, 1hr 45 from Biarritz & 20mins from Lourdes. The Pyrenees National Park is spread over 46,000 hectares and represents more than 100km of high mountains separating France and Spain. There are 350km of sign posted trails and offers all the best in walking, fantastic scenery, good weather and variety for all. If you fancy driving to Laruns approx. 1hr 25mins away you will find one of the Pyrenees National Park information centres where they can help and advise you on the type of walk you are looking for should it be taking in the lakes or looking at the flowers or the wildlife. A good website for information I found is www.parc-pyrenees.com <BR>We are approx. 1hr 40mins from Le... more
