Surrounding Area:  Salies de Bearn truly is an authentic French Village and one of the prettiest villages in the region with charming medieval houses and architecture set against the backdrop of the beautiful Pyrenees.

This largely undiscovered region of SW France is becoming best known for its traditional Basque way of life, and is well serviced by two international airports at Pau and Biarritz.

It is also brilliantly located for all holiday pursuits and a perfect base from which to explore the surf beaches, ski stations, Pyrenees mountains, the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage, or perfect just to simply immerse yourself in traditional French Village life.

The village offers many excellent restaurants, shops, bars, bakeries and patisseries, a cinema, an excellent CarreFour supermarket, and a golf course, and everything is within easy walking distance from the house. There is a wonderful weekly market on Thursdays, and numerous fetes throughout the year.

Salies de Bearn is also only 45 mins from the famous surf beaches of Biarritz and Hossegor, the excitement of the Pyrenees Ski Stations and the Michelin starred pinxto delights of San Sebastian.

Whatever your interests, Salies de Bearn is an excellent destination for a surfing or ski trip, a gourmet Basque getaway, or an extended French experience living and enjoying life in the midst of a thriving French village.

NOTE: Owners Kate and Jason together with their then 9 year old daughter Arabella spent 12 months living in this village in 2012 before buying and renovating this property and would be more than happy to answer any questions and share their experience on things to do nearby, how to get around and general hints on living life in a traditional French village.
