Area Information
The mill is situated on the river Arberoue just outside the village of La Bastide Clairence, voted one of the most beautiful villages in France. In wonderfully peaceful countryside, yet just half an hour from Biarritz and Pau and just 10 minutes from the A64 motorway. The surrounding countryside is stunningly beautiful with rolling hills and Basque farmhouses. The fields surrounding the mill have horses, who regularly come down to the river to drink, cows, sheep and even lamas!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Thanks for letting us stay at the mill, we absolutely loved it. The weather was unseasonably warm - 21 degrees on New Year's Eve.
Lucinda Gresswell

'Everything about the holiday was lovely and I could bore you with pages of gushing praise! The house is beautiful and very homey... There were so many nice touches; the cut flowers everywhere, the books, guide books..., magazines, the children's books, ... the beach mats, the fabulous shower, the herb garden, the UK tv. We visited Biarritz and St Jean-de-Luz regularly and love both of them.
So anyway, let me just say a simple 'thank you' for having such a lovely house in such a lovely place. We would love to come again and are thinking about inviting some friends over from the UK next year to share it with us. We will recommend it to all who ask and look forward to another great holiday.

We stayed in the mill in the last week of July/August and had a lovely time. The kids really appreciated all the toys and boogie boards and the house was just perfect. Ghislaine was really nice and helpful too.
Nikki Davis, London

Pure bliss! we didn't want to leave! We spent a wonderful week relaxing on the terrace, visiting the local area and enjoying the excellent Basque cuisine. We especially loved Biarritz and its huge choice of bars and restaurants. We will be back next year.
