Hello, we have just returned from a canine hike in the Bearnese Pyrenees. We were in the Barétous gite. What to say: super home with owners always available and more than responsive to our requests ... Cottage more than well located a few hundred meters from a river to the delight of the hairy .... a few minutes from Oloron -Ste-Marie and so any trade sought ... and the gateway to 5 valleys where you can hike galore .... Brand new cottage: we were the first to occupy! The owners still have beautiful outdoor landscaping projects ... perhaps an Agility course ... In short, a place we recommend without hesitation! We were there with 2 Malinois and a Dutch Shepherd. If you like calm and hiking you will be served ... The shared pool is a plus. Some local products available on site.

Well placed and quiet, I had the opportunity to enjoy the place as part of my travels.
Warm welcome, new cottage, I would have liked to have more time to enjoy the pool and barbecue.
In the essentials for me, I confirm that the wifi works well.
Keep me a place, I'll come back for the holidays!
Beautiful place, very nice with swimming pool, warm and pleasant. I recommend to everyone.
If you are looking for a little piece of paradise where to spend a pleasant holiday in Béarn, it is certainly in L'escargot Bleu that you have to go! The place is equipped with everything you need for a great stay: cottage with large terrace and barbecue, swimming pool, badminton net, trampoline, picnic table, playground and a large activity room with lots of board games. There is also a laundry room on site and local products to enjoy.
In the cottage, the bedding is quality and super comfortable. Both rooms contained storage and wardrobes.The kitchen is equipped with a large fridge / freezer, oven, dishwasher, coffee machine and kettle. All necessary is made available on site to cook: pan, pan, large pot, etc ... as well as plates, small plates, glasses and cutlery. There is even a barbecue! When we arrived, the necessities were already there: salt, pepper, spices, tea, coffee, chocolate, sugar. The owners had even graciously provided us with chicken eggs from their hen house. A large car park is available for vehicles. Namely: one of the cottages can accommodate people with reduced mobility. We had a great time. We will definitely be back next time!

We spent 15 days of splendid vacation in August at L'escargot bleu. We were with family with 3 children. We had an exceptional welcome with hosts caring and concerned about our comfort. The area is beautiful and the cottage is well located if you want to visit Lourdes, make beautiful hikes and content the children with a day ocean (1 hour drive for each activity).
The cottage was really well equipped, very clean, and the pool is top.
Everything is well thought out and planned for the children (playroom, swimming pool, badminton ....).
The cottage was spacious and very quiet.

Exceptional site, reception and excellent services.
Very welcoming ! Everything was perfect ! The pool, a treat! Always considerate and available. A big thank you for this stay!
On September 7th, horses and riders of the Route des Mousquetaires were able to make a pleasant stop (too short) in this place full of charm. To leave the next day was difficult ... Thank you for your welcome and your availability.

We spent two fabulous weeks at L'Escargot Bleu this summer. Catherine and Vincent are charming, very welcoming, responding with a smile to each of our requests. The cottage was of great comfort - impeccable cleanliness, comfortable beds, bed linen impeccable. The whole family was able to find his account: swimming pool for children, fenced garden for the dog! With easy access to Spain, the Pyrenees, Oloron St Marie, Pau and its surroundings, it's not the things to do that we missed, but time! We will definitely come back and recommend L'Escargot Bleu to anyone looking for a wonderful place to stay in the Bearnese Pyrenees.

Very nice cottage in a beautiful setting!
The cottage is in perfect condition, tastefully restored and very well equipped. The reception is perfect, discreet and attentive. The setting is really nice, many things to discover: hiking, sheepfolds, climbing, mountain biking, water sports ... Thank you again for this pleasant stay!
We were warmly welcomed in this beautifully decorated cottage, with comfortable beds and ideally located quiet but close to the city. The children enjoyed the games room and the pool. We highly recommend!
The setting is great, the owners are super nice, the beds are very comfortable. Ideal for families with children!
15 days spent at the snail and a lot of trouble getting back to work !!! The calm, the comfort, the swimming pool, this sight on the mountains, the gaves, the hikes as much on foot as in mountain bike, the local products, the discretion, the kindness and the availability of the owners, Sputnik and the animals, so many good memories that we hope that many will have after us !! Do not hesitate, book !!! Thank you for everything.
Perfect stay! We rented for 2 days Gite Josbaig, small independent house pleasant, modern and comfortable. The stay was relaxing, in a charming setting where we were able to enjoy the pool area and classy nature with our neighbors, donkeys and goats. The idea of a corner shop with local products, at the reception, is very nice. Thanks again to our guests and good luck!
Herveline and Jérôme, Hauts-de-France
Very nice stay in L'Escargot Bleu for me and my parents. To redo! The house we stayed in was very nice, everything was brand new. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen beautifully equipped, all in an immaculate condition. A small independent house in the shade of trees in the heart of nature, an ideal place to rest. The pool ... a jewel! Catherine and her companion are very caring and also offer a small shop with regional products very interesting. We will come back !!
Exceptional setting with a magnificent view of the Pyrenees, quiet and bucolic, generous outdoor spaces and interiors, arranged with great care. Simple and very warm welcome from Catherine and Vincent. Great and beautiful pool for the whole family. Large enclosures are already home to donkeys and sheep that can be approached freely.
Great care has been taken in every detail.Playground in the garden and indoor playroom. Farm animals in another area. Everything is new and very clean.
The house is new, very clean and very nice. The bedding is very comfortable. The playroom provided is great and the gardens, animals and outdoor games a paradise for children. To recommend absolutely.
A haven of peace in Oloron with incredible views of the countryside and the Pyrenees! Cottage suitable for wheelchairs. Recently renovated: opened in June 2019. Space and brightness. Super comfortable beds and a home could not be cleaner. Excellent breakfast served on the terrace. The owners had left something to eat a quick dinner in case we arrived late. It feels like home. A total success!

A place to relax with family, duo, friends ... The Domaine is beautiful, everything is thought, it feels good, surrounded by snowy mountains, country landscapes with animals around. The owners have done everything to make this place a haven of peace, and always with a smile and good advice. And for pet owners even for them everything is provided, which is rare, especially in such a setting! Thank you both and great success to your family, you deserve it.
My comment will be long, but I think it is important to say things when one is satisfied (and even when one is dissatisfied, because it helps choosing).
The place, to start with: beautiful, quiet, relaxing ... A breathtaking view of the mountains and nature ... Farm animals. Beautiful stone buildings ... A very beautiful place. Ideally located at the gates of the city (and Lindt factory outlet ... yum yum) without the nuisance!
The cottage: brand new, with all the comfort, tastefully decorated and very nice.
The equipment of the cottage: super well equipped ! I particularly enjoyed the real espresso machine (I admit, without my 4 coffees in the morning, I'm irascible) ... and the shower spacious, beautiful and with enough pressure to wake up!
The bedding: if there is one point that particularly touched me, it is this one ... I have big problems of back and cervical ...I do not even count the times when waking in a gite or a hotel, I can not put the leg on the floor because of sciatica appeared in the night (because of a bedding that does not suit me). .. I do not count the times when I wake up with a migraine of the devil because of my cervical mush (because of the pillow) ... But not at L'escargot bleu ! I woke up without pain and neck intact ... An exceptional bedding ... It surprised me so much that I even looked at the make and model ! It's the same for my husband, a cervical sensitive, who said to me, surprised, in the morning: "these pillows are incredible ! for once, no pain at all"!
Finally our guests: what to say ... adorable beyond the norm ... the little care ... with a big heart like that and the desire to please and serve ...
In short, you will understand, I recommend a thousand times this place ... And if I come back in this region (which is not impossible), I will return with pleasure!
Congratulations to you and do not change anything!
Excellent house and brilliant hosts. Will be back !
