Maysonnave was a perfect holiday house for us. It is ideal for two people as it is not too large, but it is in a very quiet secluded spot with plenty of space both inside and out. It is beautifully finished and contains all the facilities you could possibly need, including wifi.
It is very well located for this beautiful part of the Bearn, with several lovely market towns (Sauveterre, Salies, Navarrenx) just a short drive away, and both the mountains and the sea easily in reach.
This is the second time we have stayed here and it was somehow an improvement on our last visit. Great quiet location, close to the mountains, rivers, villages and even Spain! Very well maintained property that now offers wi-fi and satellite tv (should you wish!) Would highly recommend :-)
We stayed in the little house for 3 weeks and had a fabulous holiday. The location is fantastic with beaches, villages, Spain, rivers, larger towns all close by and the house itself is well equipped, cosy and just idyllic. Whether it was meals in the garden or snuggled up in front of the fire, the house was beautiful. We would certainly go back!
After travelling to the Béarnaise region on my quest to find the mythical Foxbat (Vulpas Megachiroptera), I heard of sightings in the area of Sauveterre de Bearn. I hired a new Golf (remembering the handbrake issue) and set off.
I stayed at the Little House again (after previously staying a year or two before) and was delighted to find the place as immaculate and homely as ever, this time with a few more mod-cons! Wifi Internet has been added as has satellite TV. This is a special place and a perfect retreat for those looking to get away from it all.
It turned out to be an awful choice for the Foxbat hunter, however, as I found nothing. I still have yet to sight one of the elusive creatures but will be trying again next year. Romania is supposedly rife with them from October onwards.
This was our second stay at the little house & was every bit as enjoyable as the first, if not more! We traveled down to the house via an overnight stop in Bordeaux (highly recommended!) having stayed with family approx 4 hours north of the little house the week before. As before everything was in excellent order which makes relaxing all the more easier. The local village is great for somewhere to eat in the evenings, to grab a drink after a walk or some supplies from the local supermarket & bakery. We also took in a day trip to San Sebastian this time round (only a 90 min drive away) as well as the local market in Salies-de-Bearn which are both a must if you're staying here. Needless to say, we look forward to staying at the little house in the future!
