Perks for the Parents

This elegantly-restored 19th Century farmhouse with a pool is nestled in the tranquil French countryside beside a vast lake and is well set up for families. The pool is surrounded by sun loungers and overlooks the countryside. The graveled courtyard has café tables, a grill and a large covered dining area, with twinkling lights overhead. The hosts arrange a lovely welcome pack full of local produce including wine to help you settle in. Bikes are provided so that you can explore, along with a list of local markets so you always have somewhere new to buy local produce. Nearby activities include golf (there are 4 great courses nearby), a spa in Val Louron, and day trips to Biarritz (2 hour’s drive) and Spain (1 hour away).

Why Kids Love it

Along with the large garden, heated pool and toys to play with, the hosts provide a table tennis table and Playstation as well as an iPod docking station. There is an outdoor high wire activity center 40 minutes away, a water park 30 minutes away and a large lake at the end of the lane with walks and woodlands. In winter, there are snowy mountains to visit in under an hour’s drive. The house has a storeroom packed with toys, bikes and child-friendly gear. We love the idea of morning bike rides around the country lanes, afternoon playtime in the lawned gardens and outdoor dinners to end each evening.

About the Location

Nearby there is an excellent local auberge with great value food (3 minutes away). There are local produce markets in the local towns most mornings, all 15 minutes’ drive away.

Three of the beds can be made into twins if needed.They are all on the second floor.

Style Notes

Country chic. The bathrooms are beautiful - one has a wall of mirrors and the other has a relaxing roll top bath. The outdoor eating area in the semi-covered barn is romantic and rustic at the same time. Bedrooms are decorated with color and restrained country chic patterns - roses and comfortable sofas, for a start. There are exposed beams and floorboards and comfortable, inviting living spaces. The garden is set up for kids with a large lawn, play spaces and a pool.

We work hard and really value and look forward to our holiday time. Its important to catch up with each other and relax. Thats why we love our home in France - its beautiful location and relaxing atmosphere provides a perfect backdrop for our family holidays. Our boys are 8 & 10 and keen adventurers and independent spirits, the outside space gives them a great environment to enjoy themselves.

We loved our stay in this gorgeous farmhouse! It has many spaces to explore but we loved most our dinners out on the patio! We took day trips easily to the markets, a hike in the Pyrenees and also west to Bayonne.

The property exceeded our expectations. In fact, the pictures on your website did not capture just how beautiful the Tresbos farmhouse actually can be. We weren't sure what we were getting (as it is with any home rental) but this place is a treasure. We appreciated how it was beautiful, well maintained, and clean but very relaxed -- the perfect blend for a nice holiday. You can tell the home is loved, and this matters as a renter (and can shape how it comes across). The caretaker is a lovely woman named Joe and she is very responsive and keeps things beautiful. As for the location? Beautiful. We've never experienced this part of France and we will be back.

Our stay at Tresbos was magical. The Tresbos house is wonderfully charming, relaxing and functional with a well equipped kitchen and lots of toys for the kids. The outdoor space is a perfect place to run around, go for a swim and have a picnic. Vicki was especially accommodating and provided all kinds of information about the house and region. Our family absolutely hopes to return!

Puydarrieux, Southwest France

Meadows, mountains and a lake

This small rural town near Toulouse in the southwest of France is ideal for a relaxing stay in the country. There’s a huge lake to explore as well as the mountains of the Pyrenees and local ski stations in winter. Play in the meadows, cycle down country lanes or visit the nearest town of Tarbes for toy shops, boutiques and divine bakeries.
