The Atlantic beaches are 45 mins away and offer a wide choice including the stylish resort Biarritz, the enchanting Basque village Bidart, the surfers’ paradise Hossegor, and beautiful and popular St-Jean-de-Luz. Even closer (12 miles) is Lac de Sames with a sandy beach, water slides and pedalos. Lac d'Orthez (15 miles) has all this plus bumper boats. Base de Pop in Guiche (15 miles) is a lovely lake with free swimming, and paddle boards, boats and canoes to hire, but the main attraction is the enormous (and terrifying!) water jump which teenagers love, as well as an 'Aqua Park' for younger children and the less adventurous. Or try Aqua Béarn, a charming water park in Estialescq (37 miles), great fun and suitable for all ages. San Sebastián in Spain, with a strong Basque character and fabulous beach, is just over 1 hour away.

Travel:

The nearest airports are Biarritz and Pau which are a ¾ hour drive away, and there are several others which aren't too far - Tarbes-Ossun-Lourdes 1 hour, Bordeaux 1¾ hours, Toulouse 2¼ hours. All are served by scheduled and low-cost airlines, are close to a motorway and have car hire available.

Bilbao ferry port is 131 miles, Santander 185 miles, St Malo 445 miles and Caen 490 miles. We can offer guests up to 10% discount on Brittany Ferries sailings between the UK & France or Spain.

TGVs from Paris stop at Puyoo (15 min drive) and Orthez (25 min drive). Car hire is available in Orthez close to the station.

There are no buses that serve Carresse so a car is pretty much essential, although it is possible to manage with bicycles.

People come from several miles around to Carresse’s excellent bakery, just 200m from Maison Mailhes. The village also has a hotel-restaurant, café, post office, pharmacy and hairdresser which are all within 400 metres of Maison Mailhes.

4 miles to the east is the beautiful, historic spa town of Salies-de-Béarn with thermal baths, shops, numerous restaurants, a casino and sporting facilities including golf and tennis. 4 miles in the opposite direction is Sorde l'Abbaye, a UNESCO site with Roman mosaics, on the Chemin de St Jacques, an ancient pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostella which is still followed today.

This region of France is known for its gastronomy, and there are wonderful markets selling local produce, as well as gift items and souvenirs, in various nearby towns. The area has many excellent restaurants, but a firm favourite with the locals and visitors alike is the Michelin listed La Belle Auberge, just 3 miles away in Castagnède.

The only independent wine producer in the Béarn, Pascal Lapeyre, is in Salies-de-Béarn. The family has been making wine there since 1909 and it is generally agreed that they produce the best wines in the Béarn. Look out for them – Domain Guilhemas and Domaine Lapeyre – in local restaurants and shops. Better still, call in and taste them and see the huge oak barrels containing the aging wine before buying a few bottles to drink at Maison Mailhes or to take home as souvenirs.

There are fascinating medieval towns to explore close by, including Sauveterre-de-Béarn, Orthez, Navarrenx and St Jean Pied de Port. A 25 minute drive south brings you to St-Palais, a market town in the Basque region.

The Gave (river) d’Oloron is within 10 mins walk of Maison Mailhes. It is one of only 2 rivers in France where the salmon still return naturally to their spawning grounds each year, and is reputedly one of the best fishing rivers in France. Our managers can organise fishing permits for our guests. The Gave is also good for swimming and kayaking, and there is white water rafting nearby.

Maison Mailhes is an ideal base for a cycling or walking holiday. Whether you bring your own bikes or hire them nearby they can be safely stored in the shed when not in use. Walkers of all abilities and aspirations are well catered for, with walks ranging from gentle strolls through the beautiful countryside to demanding hikes in the Pyrénées.

Fêtes are a way of life in the Pyrénées Atlantiques – you will be unlucky if you don't encounter one. There are fêtes throughout the year, but every weekend in the summer sees Carresse or a nearby village "en fête" with food, drink, games, music and dancing.
