Stayed one week in July 2018 with another American couple. Hosts Helene and Albert were absolutely charming, offered us fresh eggs from their chickens, veggies from the garden and a local wine. House has three bedrooms and two baths -- would be great to use the middle bedroom (which we did not need) for a 'kids' dorm,' as it has two connected rooms with a total of four single beds. Pool is the highlight! Sliding, modular steel-and-glass 'greenhouse' covers a large rectangular pool. Relax in a lounge chair with corn fields and the Pyrenees in the distance. Note that stores/bakery are a 10-15 minute drive to Oloron, but 'bread lady' in a car delivers 3X per week.
If you want a cottage at the end of the road, this is it. I came for complete solitude and I got it. The grounds are magnificent. The laird of the manor's dogs are extraordinary. Superb surroundings and total peace and quiet. Creature comforts are a bit old fashioned (heat from a wood burning stove) but my needs were elsewhere so a bit of primitive skills learning was fine. Proprietors are delightful.
