In the heart of a small village in the Pyrenees, surrounded by greenery, quiet. At 10min from Lourdes and the sanctuary and at the feet of the ski resorts (Hautacam, Luz, Cauterets ...). Large country house. All comfort and good local cuisine!

My stay with Solas is a great example of why AirBnB can be so much better than a hotel. So memorable. When I saved my offline map it didnt take in the address, so when I got to Beaucen I didnt know where to go. But I had some great chats with the local retirees in my broken French and they pointed the way. Then it was late and all the bistros were closed. But Solas came through so good - he runs a small scale organic farming operation! His whole house is full of delicious stuff. He gave me some local soup, tinned fish, bread and the best tomatoes I've ever had. Then for breakfast we had local style almond croissants and so much coffee. Meanwhile he told me great stories of Pyrenees life. What a character. The rooms are great too. All clean and good kitchens. 10/10 can recommend.
Very quiet area. Good base to explore Pyrenees as well as Lourdes. Mr Solas is an excellent host, warm and gracious while allowing you your privacy. The "apartment" is a series of 2 person small apartments. If you are a larger group, you get assigned more than one apartment. They are all in the same corridor, so it's ok for a larger family with older kids but not for a family with more than 2 kids who need to be close to a parent at. Night.
Merci pour l'accueil! Nous avons été très bien reçus par M. Solas, qui nous avait même préparé le barbecue et qui nous a laissé profiter de sa véranda/terrasse pour la soirée. La maison est idéalement située aux pieds des Pyrénées et si vous aimez les produits locaux, M. Solas prépare et vend pâtés, confitures, garbures, etc.
