La Conciergerie - Holiday cottage in deep SW France


Details of the House

La Conciergerie was originally the gate house for the chateau in the small village of Méritein. It stands in the grounds of the chateau, but is now a seperate family holiday home. It has three spacious bedrooms that can comfortably sleep up to six adults with cots available for toddlers and babies. Here you have the best of both worlds, as the house is situated in a typically quiet french village, but is only a ten minute walk to Navarrenx, where you'll find several bars, some with live music, restaurants, antique shops, art gallery artisanal markets, cycle hire, boulangeries, charcuteries and banks. There are tennis courts, a large outdoor swimming pool and petanque area.Every year Navarrenx hosts the 'World Champion Salmon Fishing' competition in the magnificent river, the 'Gave d'Oloron' where you can also try canoeing, rafting and kayaking. If you prefer walking or cycling there are hundreds of kilometres of quiet roads to do both, or cycle off-road on the well marked forest routes. Horse riding and hot air ballooning are available locally too. The Tour de France passes very near every year on it's way to and from the nearby Pyrénées mountains.

This holiday house in Navarrenx is pet / dog friendly.
