Beauty, harmony, tranquillity... all who stay, long to return. The grand old village maison de maître, in Henri's family for centuries, opens to soft green rolling meadows and the majestic Pyrénées – the finest view in all France! Basque-born Ione, graceful and gracious mother of two, ushers you up the venerable stair to wonderful warm bedrooms in pastel hues – one with a balcony – and luscious beds wrapped in antique linen. The living room, where a fire roars and a fine dinner is served on winter weekends, is a delight to come home to after a day's skiing or hiking. For summer? A dreamy garden. Exceptional.

"The room with the balcony is beautiful. The hosts are very friendly and offer superb advice for walking and touring. Great breakfasts. The small village restaurant (Le Petit Couassert) is typically French, quirky and delightful. It has the advantage of being a minutes walk away and Our second night's meal was delicious. Would definitely recommend Eth Berye Petit as a place to stay. "

"What's a wonderful place. Set in a stunning location but very close to Lourdes sits this amazing B&B. We had great weather too so lucky enough to have the best experience, taking breakfast on the terrace looking towards the snow capped mountains with clear blue sky . What more could you ask for? Our room was bright, clean and very well furnished. Very romantic too. We loved it and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to find a special place to spend time in the Pyrenees. Exceptional. "

"Words cannot describle what a wonderfully relaxing and inspiring place this is. If you get the chance to book the room with the balcony - do it!. Fantastic views, calm, relaxing, fabulous area to explore. Go to Pic de Midi for certain. Take the advice from your two amazing hosts, Ione and Henri. We visited all the places they recommended. We bought the wines they advised. Two genuinely lovely people who go out of their way to make you feel at home. The breakfasts were great - enough to last you until evening! The atmosphere calm, relaxing. I LOVED this break at their lovely house. Our thanks."

"After a month away in various b and bs, we would still vote this as our absolute favourite . Henri and Ione are gracious generous hosts, sharing time and top tips to help us make the most of our time in the area. Every recommendation worked for us. They have a great little rural restaurant literally a minutes walk a way , and after a substantial breakfast featuring a selection of local cheeses and Iones superb baking, we almost lasted all day on that alone! The bedroom was beautifully decorated in gorgeous linens, some antique , with fine views out across the moody Pyrenees . "

"What a gem of a place. We are so grateful to Henri and Ione for being such wonderful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts and Ione's baking are simply to die for. Want to know what to do or where to go? Just ask Henri. With his expert knowledge of the area you are sure to have an experience of a life time. Can't praise them enough. A stunning house with amazing views of the Pyrenees. "

"We spent 3 nights between 31 Oct 3 Nov 2012. Thanks for the advices received from our experienced and friendly hosts and we had 2 wonderful walking tours. (even we survived the icy paths) The room was perfect so as the breakfast, and also the dinners in the recommended neighbouring small restaurant. We want to come back for a week at least to have more time for discover the area. Highly recommended for those who want to escape from the daily rush and want to see by bare eyes the Milky way :)"

"This is the perfect place from which to explore the Haut Pyrenees. Henri and Ione are charming hosts with extensive knowledge of the area. The house is gorgeous. Our bedroom/bathroom was spotlessly clean, the balcony draped in sweet wisteria. The breakfast was simple but extremely tasty, served on the terrace with magnificent views of the mountains. We cannot fault the Eth Berye Petit and would return without hesitation."

""Going back" somewhere the question is "will it live up to the expectations?". WE enjoyed out time at Eth Berye Petit last year and decided to return there. It exceeding our expectations quite comfortably. The place is lovely anyway however the hospitality from Ione and Henri is of a very high standard indeed - we will return there."
