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.
