Holiday Rental House
Les Palombes is a luxurious eighteenth-century farmhouse on the outskirts of the tiny peaceful village of Castetbon looking towards the Pyrénées. Modernisation was completed in 2015. The home has been designed around an open-plan south-west facing kitchen on the ground floor and a large communal salon facing the same way above. The large apex-roofed space above (or the Music Room as it has become known) houses a Yamaha C5 grand piano which usually remains locked but which can be made available for the musical guest at an extra cost of €150 per week. There is a bright big garden with a large heated swimming pool (12m x 5m) and a pétanque court (kit provided). Lovely walks and cycle-rides around the property. Inside the house there are three big bedrooms each with a 2m x 2m super-king...Les Palombes is a luxurious eighteenth-century farmhouse on the outskirts of the tiny peaceful village of Castetbon looking towards the Pyrénées.

Inside the house there are three big bedrooms each with a 2m x 2m super-king bed. Bedroom 1 (first floor - largest) has a spacious en-suite Italian shower room, leading to a separate chamber in which there is a cast-iron bath. Bedroom 2 (ground floor) has a spacious en-suite Italian shower room. Bedroom 3, (ground floor) neighbours a spacious Italian shower room which can also act as a W.C. for the kitchen area. Two flag-stoned terraces, both with stunning views, provide various options for outdoor eating depending on the time of day. A further flag-stoned area in the outer-garden offers natural green shade for the hot afternoons. There is central heating (if needed) and a wood-burning stove. Flat-screen TV with DVD player. Castetbon is in the Béarn, a soft agricultural region of rivers, fields and villages. Nearby (ten-minute drive) is the small popular town of Navarrenx, recently voted the most beautiful rampart village in France. Plenty of excellent bars and restaurants to be enjoyed. More

What needs to be said that the photos don't say? This is the most beautiful renovated gite, everything about it was just perfect and it made our Honeymoon just that little bit more special. We're already talking about trying to visit again next year! Facilities...More

Our second visit and it didn't disappoint. There is nothing about Les Palombes we don't love: the terrace, the pool, the countryside, the area (we even managed a trip to the Guggenheim in Bilbao this time). In short, a heavenly house, heaps to do, the...More

This is an amazing place, the loveliest of all the houses we've ever stayed in. Beautifully done up, enormous rooms, gorgeous pool and, best of all, a vast terrace that looks out over nothing but sunflower fields, trees and rolling hills, and the mountains in...More
