    Description

    My mother (92) and I, language teacher, arrived in the summer of 2015 coming from the Netherlands. We have chosen to live in this part of France to discover an authentic and 'couleur locale' France at the foot of the Pyrénées. We are still discovering this very diverse region and we love it. A mix of culture, gastronomy and a lot of activities, just what we were looking for. We are located in a small, picturesque town with a thermal spring. I made our house as my project. I hope to renovate 3 nice rooms for a B&B for guests who need to go to the Spa for medical reasons. Our house is located 10 minutes from the Spa in a residential area. The garden needs a total new concept.

Excellent area for hiking and biking with a beautiful countryside, mountains, 40 minutes from Bayonne and Biarritz, the Atlantic Ocean, 40 minutes from Pau, 2 hours from Bordeaux. A lot of interesting history and cultural highlights. Public transport is not organized. Own transport would be desirable but I can show you around.
