Situated in the Western Pyrenees, between Pau and Oloron Ste Marie and close to the Spanish border, the house lies at the end of a quiet lane, perched above the attractive village of Ogeu-les-Bains. It enjoys spectacular panoramic views of the mountains. An ideal base for a family holiday, with a heated swimming pool (8 x 4 metres), a large enclosed and safe garden (5 bikes, badminton, table tennis, boules, darts, football goal available), barbecue, south-facing terrace with table and seating for 10, and an indoor games room. In a peaceful setting, but within easy access of the mountains, Spain, the Pays Basque, Lourdes, Biarritz, Bayonne and the Atlantic coast, and a huge variety of activities all year round - hiking, cycling, white-water rafting, skiing at Gourette (40 minutes' drive), horse riding, fishing, golf, paragliding. This much loved family holiday home has a recently refurbished and fully-equipped kitchen, a new bathroom upstairs with separate bath and shower, a spacious open-plan dining/living area, separate sitting room with TV/DVD, downstairs twin-bedded bedroom and downstairs bathroom with shower. Upstairs are two twin-bedded rooms (one with extra pull-out bed), a large double bedroom and the large new bathroom. Chill the days away if you wish, swimming or sunbathing, or head up into the mountains; sample some of the delicious local food and wine. Relax totally just sitting on the terrace as you gaze at the mountains - every bit as good as meditation. There are always plenty of birds to observe in the sky - from buzzards to sparrow hawks to vultures to Eagles.

Accommodation: Inside: DOWNSTAIRS: Large L-shaped and open-plan living/dining area and kitchen. The living area has a wood-burning stove and in the dining area there is a large table and seating for 10. Two sets of French windows open out onto a large south-facing terrace with wonderful mountain views. The spacious and well-equipped kitchen leads off the dining area and is newly fitted (includes dishwasher, fridge/freezer and microwave). A third set of French windows in the kitchen open out onto the garden. There is also a separate sitting room with TV/DVD and a good selection of books, games, CDs and DVDs in English & French. Also downstairs is a bedroom with two single beds, a shower room with WC and a cloak/boot/boiler room which leads into a garage. In this garage are a washing machine and tumble dryer. UPSTAIRS: large galleried landing; two twin-bedded rooms (one with third pull-out bed); one double-bedded room; cot and 2 inflatable mattress available on request; new large family bathroom.

OUTSIDE: The large enclosed garden offers complete privacy and is mainly laid to grass, so is ideal for games or just for relaxing in. The garden surrounds the house, so there is always a cool spot to be found even in the height of summer and a selection of deck chairs and loungers to relax in. The heated swimming pool has a child-proof cover and solar shower. 4 sun-loungers are provided and there are also floats and pool toys. The terrace is ideal for 'al fresco' dining - morning, noon and night - with stunning panoramic views of the mountains and the barbecue and pool close by. A large second garage/indoor games room has lots of equipment for family games, including table tennis, badminton, boules and darts, as well as 3 adult bikes and 2 children's bikes, all of which guests are welcome to use. There is a separate orchard below the garden.

Getting there: The quickest way of getting to Ogeu from the UK is by air from London Stansted or Bristol or Birmingham or Dublin or Manchester to Biarritz, Tarbes, Toulouse or Bordeaux. Ryanair have daily low-cost flights which take approximately 1 hour 30 minutes. Easyjet and FlyBe also have flights which are worth checking. Car hire is available from the airport - we tend to use either Rentalcars.com or Holiday Autos. Other airports within easy reach of Ogeu are Toulouse (2 hours 30 minutes) and Bordeaux (3 hours). There are also daily flights from Paris to Pau. There are ferry crossings to Bilbao or Santander from Plymouth or Portsmouth which are approximately 3 or 4 hours' drive from Ogeu. If you are arriving from the UK and want to have your own car, this is a good way of saving you a long drive. But if you like the prospect of driving through France, French motorways are excellent.

Ogeu has its own train station and it is possible to travel to the house by train. You could, for instance, take the TGV to Pau and then catch a train directly from there to Ogeu.


IN ADDITION TO THE REVIEWS SECTION WE HAVE ADDED A SELECTION OF COMMENTS FROM OUR VISITORS’ BOOK:


We have fallen in love with this beautiful area of France and your holiday home has made the perfect base from which to explore this region. There is much to see and do in this relatively unspoilt area and we hope to return in the not too distant future to sample more of the local cuisine, soak up the atmosphere and seek out further treasures. Thank you for a wonderful fortnight. LEVY-CHANCE FAMILY (HEREFORDSHIRE)

We all loved the pool and the fantastic views ; the area was great to discover – day trips to Oloron Ste Marie and Lourdes ; up to the Col de Marie-Blanque (great scenery !), Louvié-Juzon fête and Castet for a picnic. Local boulangerie is very good and the grown-up boys liked the local bar. WITHERS FAMILY (HAMPSHIRE)


We’ve had a fantastic fortnight ! Hours of swimming, table tennis, badminton and boules. A wonderful trip on ‘Le Petit Train’, breakfast picnics at Cromlech and Lescun – the latter is without a doubt one of the most beautiful bits of the Pyrenees. Views from the house sublime. KING FAMILY (IRELAND)


Thoroughly enjoyed our brief sojourn. Especially the outdoor dining overlooking the Pyrenees – just spectacular ! Great to return for a relaxing swim after some heavy walking in the hills. We found the house very well equipped – a great place to spread out and relax. Thank you so much ! JULIA PAULL (SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA)


We’ve had a wonderful holiday ! What a lovely place – very comfortable, magnificent views, splendid pool – it’s been a real joy. RAMSBOTHAM FAMILY (CAMBRIDGESHIRE)

We had a great holiday here. So happy to find so many home comforts – really well provided for. Our best find was the creperie on road to Rébénacq – on a beautiful night with the sun setting around the mountains and a few bottles of local cider ! Lots of cycling and hide and seek. GALLAGHER FAMILY (GLASGOW, SCOTLAND)


A wonderful time with the ever-changing sky and the mountains ! Delightful long lunches under the awning on the patio ! The pool was wonderful ! Very, very quiet and restful. Thanks for a terrific holiday ! (ODA AND ROBERT HODGE, TORONTO, Canada)

We enjoyed the location with the fine mountain view and did a lot of swimming in the perfect pool with its most welcome heating system. (it was the end of September). The weather appeared rather changeable and we noted that clouds frequently changed direction (pretty unusual for Dutchies). Our trips into the Hautes Pyrenees were magnificent. (VAN LEEUWEN FAMILY, UTRECHT, HOLLAND)


Great Christmas holiday. Wonderful scenery and places of interest. Sunny days made it a memorable stay. SING FAMILY (MID-WALES)

Lovely location, excellent views. Kids enjoyed day in the snow in the mountains. Really relaxing holiday. We travelled somewhere different everyday. Loved the house. O’SHEA FAMILY (IRELAND)

We have had a wonderful time. The weather has been perfect so the pool has been a godsend. The house is one of the best we have had for a number of years, and Lizzie was so friendly and helpful. And the views fantantastic. What a good week. (AITKEN FAMILY, LANCASHIRE)


Thank you – we’ve had a wonderful holiday and experienced new places yet again from our last visit 3 years ago. The area is outstanding and of course the pool just brilliant and very welcome with the very hot weather. Visit to Gourette in the mountains highly recommended, along with La Foret Suspendue – brilliant ! Found some new places to eat including La Trinquet in Oloron – fantastic! Thanks again! (DAVIES FAMILY, SHROPSHIRE)

Many thanks for a fabulous two-week stay and you couldn’t ask for a more beautiful view. The house is well equipped and we really felt at home – so much so that we didn’t want to leave! All the locals have been incredibly friendly and made our stay even more enjoyable. Had an amazing journey to the Col d’Aubisque – highly recommended. Also Biarritz, St Jean de Luz, San Sebastian, the Pyrenees, also Pau, some excellent restaurants, beautiful beaches at Hossegor. All in all a really fabulous two weeks, we have thoroughly enjoyed it, many thanks. SMITH FAMILY (DERBY)

Somptueuse maison avec une magnifique vue sur les montagnes. Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour! Nous partirons la tête pleine de bons souvenir et de beaux paysages. SOPHIE (RENNES)


Merci beaucoup pour l’accueil. Nous avons apprécié le confort, la vue exceptionnelle, la douceur de ce coin de verdure et le temps de vivre. Nous gardons vos coordonnées. Comme à la maison. L’idéal pour des vacances, plus la vue sur la montagne qui amène à la rêverie. Merci.

Wunderschöner Aufenthalt mit toller Aussicht
Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit in dem behaglichen Haus. Der Blick von der Terasse war unglaublich. Das Entspannen im salzwasserbehandelten, beheizten Pool rundete jeden Tag nach Wanderungen in den traumhaften Pyrenäen ab. Vielen Dank für den erholsamen Aufenthalt mit hervorragender Organisation - wir kommen gerne wieder!

One of the best holiday properties we have stayed in, from booking to arriving everything was made so easy, a really well equipped house with linen and towels at your disposal. It was truly a home away from home and a good heated pool to swim in each day. The area had a lot to offer with places to visits for all ages. Would recommend this property and we are already making plans to return again.

Views even better 'in real life' - fantastic. We've stayed in lots of holiday homes over the years but this is definitely amongst the best ever. Home from home - extremely characterful, comfortable house, very well equipped. Swimming pool very clean, swam most days whilst looking at the Pyrennes mountains! We really didn't want to leave and would love to return if we get the chance.

A spacious house with a great view of the Pyrenees
We rented this home in Ogeu les Bains for a week in January. We were six people in all: two grandparents, two parents and two children. The house is spacious and well-equipped, with good central heating and plenty of room for three generations. The patio looks out to the Pyrenees mountains and the Winter sunshine was warm enough for lunch outside. There are plenty of books and games etc. to suit most ages and tastes. There is also table tennis in the 'garage'. There are good walks from the old part of the village and a ski station not too far away. The local shop caters for most needs and there is a bakery there too. Olorons is the nearest town and has numerous shops and restaurants. Pau is not too far away and the roads are good - even in midwinter. All-in-all, an excellent place for a family holiday.

Wine and cheese were waiting at our arrival. The house is a home away from home and has a good location to explore the region and is within easy reach of Oloron, Pau, Lourdes and the mountains. Bakery and market close by is a plus. We had good weather in November of 20 degrees for several days. We can recommended staying here.

Stunning house and garden, great owners

Ogeu Les Bains Review - 5 stars.

We have stayed at the house for 3 consecutive summers, and can only report positive memories and a genuine love for the house and the area. If you are looking for a holiday that will have nice weather in the main, stunning scenery and total peace this is ideal.

The House

Over the 3 years, the house has evolved with small improvements made by the owners each year, such as the wooden flooring through the upstairs and the main living areas, or the re-modelled upstairs bathroom. There is ample space for 5 adults and 2 children. The upstairs bedrooms are spacious and the landing area creates a nice communal space. The bathroom is new and soacious, and the view from the window must be one of the most picturesque that can be found. It is especially pretty after dark, as the village below lights up and the Pyrenees create shadows in the gloom.

Downstairs there is a very spacious, well-equipped kitchen area and a large dining table, an open plan area by a large fireplace where a sofa sits and can allow a very central seating point. There is a downstairs TV room, that seats for 5-6 people comfortably. To the rear are 2 large double door exits, front door and a large window in the TV room, all of which overlook the pool. The kitchen has a modern fridge, oven, hob, microwave and dishwasher.

There a covered tiled area that allows outdoor eating under cover, which is especially useful to provide shade on very warm days! This area leads down to a gorgeous heated pool. Minimal maintenance is required and all the instructions for this are provided by the owners. A new pool heater was put in recently, again showing the owners commitment to maintaining the property to a high standard. The pool is gated and fenced to the entrance from the house, and secluded by hedging around the sides and rear. It is plenty big enough to have a decent swim and children love it.

The area is incredible, get up into the mountains and take the artouste train and walk round Lac de Bious-Artigues, is its truly breathtaking!

The owners could not be nicer, more helpful and supportive when we had any problems (including calling a doctor for us when our lad was ill) and over 3 years have really improved the property. They are flexible and genuine people that respond very quickly to any questions. If you want nature and to relax in comfort book it, just be prepared to never want to leave.

A wonderful week in a very special place.
We felt immediately relaxed in this charming house. There's everything you need there and more. The pool is gorgeous - you can gaze up at the sky or across the mountains in complete privacy. The air is so pure and fresh, the valleys are truly spectacular, the locals are very friendly. We so enjoyed choosing wild mushrooms at the local market and travelling on Le Petit Train d'Artouste. We cannot recommend it more highly - we're so delighted that we had the opportunity to discover this wonderful area. Even at the end of September we enjoyed 5 warm sunny days, and on the other 2 we curled up by the fabulous wood burner. We would definitely recommend getting there via the Bilbao Brittany Ferry - it was a fun way to travel, with lovely dinners and lots of time to relax.

It was just what we needed, a quiet place where we could relax and unwind. Amazing views, star-filled skies and breathtaking surroundings, including some interesting neighbors (horses and sheep) that just added to the overall charm. We had pretty good weather so we were able to enjoy the pool as well, heated to perfection! Our host Nathalie was a delight when she greeted us. The info they have about the destination is quite comprehensive and we had no problems getting to the house with the directions Annabel provided. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could ever imagine. In fact, there were a couple of items we decided we had to buy for our own kitchen! Annabel made the whole booking process a breeze, very responsive and quick.

Wir hatten eine sehr erholsame Woche. Das hübsche Haus liegt genau zwischen den beiden Tälern (Ossau-Aspe) und bietet daher zahlreiche Möglichkeiten zum Wandern. Der beheizte Pool, ein Außengrill, ein schöner Garten und der herrliche Blick auf die Pyrenäen lassen keine Wünsche offen. Der Kontakt zu den Vermietern war unkompliziert! Danke an Annabel und Thane!

Beautiful. Gorgeous views, beautiful area, lovely house. Excellent in every way. Highlight? Swimming in the pool, stopping to lean head back and gaze up at the sky - and spotting a group of seven Egyptian vultures gliding overhead (positive id via binoculars!). Also loved the stag beetles who buzzed around every evening.

We loved the location of this house with fantastic views and easy access to the mountains, whilst still having easy access to Pau and the coast. We wanted for nothing in the house which was spotless for our arrival and notably well equipped in the kitchen, plus plenty of equipment for entertainment from dvds to table tennis and the fab pool.

It is a great base to explore the mountains. We had a week of fine weather and spent much of it outdoors looking at the amazing views, birdlife and rambling the well signposted walks. We were impressed by the files of local information and comprehensive set of walking maps available at the house.

Many thanks to Annabel and Thane for making the booking process so straightforward, and for sharing their lovely french home.

We had a wonderful week. The house was just as expected, spacious and clean and very well equipped, including games and other things to entertain the children with us. The owners have been very thoughtful. We spent lots of time in the pool and relaxing on the sunny terrace enjoying the truly wonderful panoramic views of the mountains. The large garden also provided lots of room for outdoor games. We enjoyed driving into the mountains as the house is in a great location for easy exploring of some spectacular country, and had a memorable visit to the Parc'Ours at Borce (recommended), also a trip to Oloron, which is an interesting town and the market is well worth catching. Another time we would take the train to Pau as an easy day trip. However, we didn't feel much need to stir from such a peaceful and relaxing spot. It was perfect for a family holiday and we would highly recommend it as a place to unwind as well as a great base for exploring the area.
