3 places


Sleeping from 2 – 8


Traditional and contemporary styles have been happily blended in this blue-shuttered Maison de Maître and adjoining converted outbuildings. Fine furniture and objets d’art are much in evidence (Derek restores antiques), set off by original tile and wooden floors and a good scattering of rugs. In the granary, a touch of rural chic: white walls, red leather sofas and exposed beams; Le Four is the original bakehouse and a very cosy bolthole with use of the pool and gardens. Kitchens are thoughtfully equipped and work well for rustling up meals. Public spaces range from roomy to snug, including a couple of wood burners in the main house. Spacious bedrooms for eight and another four in the granary, a dresser stuffed with board games, solar-heated pool and a poolside barn with table tennis and darts. With five acres of grounds to explore, it’s a children’s paradise. Canoeing, canyoning and the charming La Rhune railway into the Pyrenees are all within reach, there are festivals galore in the summer, food and night markets to be savoured, and plenty of restaurants and shops to discover within five minutes’ drive.

We had a such a relaxing and wonderful stay at Le Grenier. Bea & Derek were lovely hosts, instinctively knowing to appear otherwise we were left to enjoy the house and surroundings to ourselves. The accommodation had been beautifully faithfully restored and the gardens lovingly cared for. Our 3 year old loved the freedom of exploring the large garden and saying hello to the chickens. The pool was a great hit and we spent many a happy hour in it. There are some fantastic French restaurants near by and the countryside round about is really stunning, just a very lovely part of France.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Bea White

  • Set in the Chalosse rolling hills this 19th century house offers the peace of the countryside with opportunities to spot deer, butterflies, herons, buzzards, woodpeckers, hoopoes, turtle doves and the migrating cranes from your door step.
  • Pyron is situated between the unspoilt towns of Saint Sever and Hagetmau on the Santiago de Compostella Route. Saint Sever is steeped in Romanesque culture with its Benedictine Abbey and Cloisters. Take a tour round this old town to discover more.
  • Visit the magnificent Pyrenees for hiking and walks, villages and train rides; the Atlantic Coast with stunning views, surfing and pretty ports and San Sebastian for unmatched pintxo (tapas) culture and restaurants: all 1 to 2 hour’s drive from Pyron.
  • Go kayaking locally on calm or adventurous routes or try canyoning in the Pyrenees. The C23 cycle route runs through our village and Hagetmau boasts sporting activities of golf, tennis and has an Olympic-sized pool. Plenty of great walks around lakes too.
  • Part of Gascony the area is proud of its heritage, cuisine, wine and Armagnac. Enjoy tasting local fayre as well as delicious veg and herbs from our new potager and a welcome pack with home-made jam; free range eggs from our own chickens and local wines.
  • Enjoy the local summer village fêtes, night markets, and activities for children, especially at the local animal parks and farms. Alternatively enjoy a candlelit tour of Château de Gaujacq or visit the archaeological site Maison de la Dame de Brassempouy.
