Lou Guit in Pyrénées-Atlantiques, a villa in Aquitaine: Lou Guit exterior

Oak-beamed, converted farmhouse, with large private pool and garden. Sleeps 10.

Lou Guit, located in the Béarn region of France, is a beautifully renovated and tastefully decorated 17th Century farmhouse, set in spacious grounds with its own large private pool. Located near Sauveterre-de-Bearn, it has five large bedrooms and comfortably accommodates 10 people.

An entrance hall leads into a large open plan living room. This has a sitting area overlooking the pool terrace, with DVD-player and TV. There are huge leather armchairs and sofas and bookshelves full of the greats (and not-so-greats) of English literature. This is next to the formal dining area which boasts a 12-seater solid oak table. There is also a separate, cool study just off the entrance hall with wifi and a desk.

The newly-fitted kitchen faces onto the poolside terrace and has all modern appliances including fridge-freezer, microwave, oven, gas hob, coffee-machine, dishwasher and double sink. Next to this there is a breakfast room with a large Béarnaise fireplace and comfortable armchairs.

There are four bedrooms in the main house (two double bedrooms and two twin). All have lots of wardrobe space and three have en-suite bathrooms. There is a sofa bed in the study, so the maximum sleeping capacity is 12. Attached to the main house, overlooking the pool there is a spacious studio apartment comprising a double bedroom, a sitting area with fireplace, a separate dressing room, kitchenette and en-suite bathroom with shower. There are eight full-length windows which give a panoramic view over the pool and garden.

Connecting the main house and the studio there is a covered dining area, where guests can dine al fresco during the heat of the day. This is next to the built-in barbeque and the area is connected to the laundry and the garage.

The grounds - combining terraces, lawns, flower beds and the pool area - are surrounded by high laurel hedges and completely private. Access is via electric security gates. The pool itself can be alarmed for peace of mind when children are staying.

This fantastic location provides something for everyone. The medieval town of Sauveterre is within easy reach and has a supermarket, pharmacy, bank, bars and a wonderful chocolatier. On a clear day the view towards the Pyrennees is breath-taking. There are tennis courts in town, and white-water rafting and fishing on the Gave de Pau, which flows underneath the battlements. Salies de Bearn is 15 km to the north and has a spa, casino and golf-course. Saint Palais, 10 km to the south, is a typical Basque town, where you can watch pelota every Friday evening and ramble in the foothills of the Pyrennees.

Further afield Biarritz, Bayonne and the Atlantic beaches are less than an hour's drive away. To the South there are the majestic Pyrennees, where you can go canyoning, climbing and mountain-biking, or just follow the old pilgrims' trail into Spain.

The accommodation is very flexible and would suit smaller groups. Reduced rates are available during off-peak season.
