Orchard Cottage

Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Salies-de-Bearn, Bearn, Bearn-Basque Country, Pyrenees-Atlantiques, Nouvelle-Aquitaine
With a spacious kitchen, sunny sitting room and double doors which open onto a private terrace Orchard Cottage offers a picturesque, relaxed setting to enjoy your holiday.

Set in seven acres of private grounds belonging to a manor house which dates back to 1376, you can take in the lovely views over the countryside and to the Pyrénées beyond. Throughout the gardens and grounds, you will find peaceful, shady spots to relax in. Settle down with a good book on one of the garden benches, or just while away the time sunbathing around the beautiful pool.

Peacefully located but within easy reach of the beach, mountains, historic towns and wonderful countryside.

There are activities galore for everyone all year round. As well as tennis, horse riding and fishing, there are 15 golf courses within an hour's drive for golfers, and miles and miles of golden sands on the nearby Atlantic coast for surfers.
