The Grenier overlooks woodland, gardens and pool, a peaceful place to stay and to watch wildlife, birds, butterflies and deer. Perfectly situated to visit San Sebastian, Pays Basque, Atlantic coast, Pyrenees, Gascony, local restaurants and markets.
This lovely Grenier has been carefully renovated over the last year to offer modern and comfortable accommodation. It is ideal for couples and small families; for unwinding and getting away from it all in this part of rural undiscovered France. It is also great for exploring family beaches and surfing on the Atlantic, visiting local market towns, wines tours and tasting, mountains and swimming lakes in Mugron, St Pierre-du-Mont and Orthez.
The Grenier is surrounded by large gardens and private woodland with views over the local countryside. A variety of exotic trees and plants, including plum, peach, walnut, cherry and weeping willows provide welcome shade in the summer. The gardens provide a wonderful space to relax and unwind, stopping to see local wildlife - deer, woodpeckers and butterflies.
Downstairs you enter into a long galley kitchen dinner, which is well-equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer, vitro-ceramic hob, micro-wave, etc... The staircase with its newly handmade oak handrail takes you upstairs to the bedrooms, living room and bathroom on the first floor of the Grenier (previously a hay loft as part of the working Ferme Pyron) with its wooden architectural beams, vaulted ceilings and wooden floors all recently renovated by hand. A further set of French doors opens as a Juliette balcony (railings) giving wonderful views of the pine trees, oak woodland and pool just beyond the bean tree and weeping willow tree.
To the right you'll enter a spacious bathroom with large walk-in shower, wooden floors, cupboards and towels rails. Two renovated barn doors lead off the main area to two separate bedrooms: one with a UK king size bed (150 x 200 cm) and the other with one single bed and a small double sofa bed. In the main area itself there is a sofa, two comfortable armchairs and two side chairs creating a small lounge area ideal for reading, watching TV, etc... We provide UK TV channels via satellite and French TV channels via TNT. We have installed a reversible air conditioning and heating unit, which is great for keeping cool in summer and also heating in the cooler months alongside storage heaters.
Bearing in mind children's safety, the stair spindles have been installed according to safety regulations. There is also a safety stair gate available if required for younger children. We can provide you with a cot for babies and younger children. Please ask.
The house benefits from a new in-ground 10m x 5m eco-friendly salt water pool reducing the use of harsh chemicals. As of April 2016 it is also now fitted with solar heating, so increased pool temperatures for guests throughout the summer and warmer pool temperatures too for swimming in May, June, September and October. Water temperatures reach between 20-28° (depending on outside air temperatures and time of year). The pool is open from mid May to mid October, equipped with a safety alarm and gated fencing to keep young children safe around the pool area.
For babies and younger children we provide:
High chair with support cushion
Electric bottle warmer
Plastic glasses and crockery (also great for use around the pool)
Toilet seat riser
The pool and gardens are carefully maintained by the onsite owners. A large barn beside the pool provides shade for dining and games, including a new outdoor table tennis table. We provide plastic plates and glasses to use beside the pool. Previously an old farmhouse, we have interesting relics and rustic items on display and our first two chickens arrived in 2015. The pool may be shared by guests staying in Le Grenier and one other gite, likely to be the Four. Guests have priority use of the pool. The owners, a couple, may occasionally have a swim if guests are not using the pool area.
The Grenier is available from September to early July. It is not usually available during the summer school holidays when Le Grenier is rented together with our other property, Maison Pyron, by one large group.
The Grenier adjoins Maison Pyron, a recently renovated old farmhouse and Maison de Maître built in 1871. The Grenier is a self-contained gite with two separate entrances, its own partially fenced garden with table, chairs and plancha. The garden entrance is great in the summer months and the front entrance is better to use in wetter weather at other times of the year.
The gîte is independent and adjoins the main house (Maison Pyron) which may also be rented in the summer or lived in by ourselves. You can either use the main electric gates and park at the front of the main house or use a separate entrance to park at the rear of the property, sometimes a better option in hot weather as you can park your car inside one of the barns.
The grounds are large with plenty of space, offering chances to see wildlife, watch the stars and eat outside in summer.

We live at Pyron whilst the Grenier is rented and are available to suggest ideas with what's happening locally during your stay and can make recommendations on places to visit, events, restaurants, etc... Some guests have also enjoyed kayaking with us or attending evening events, films, restaurants, etc... I am fluent in French so can help you with translations and arrange bookings, trips out or liaise with any return stop-over hotels, etc…
