La Puyadette: a 4-star, two-bedroom, holiday rental house with swimming pool and enclosed garden, in Salies de Béarn, south west France, sleeps 4. Dog friendly (subject to prior agreement).
The kitchen/diner has a dining table (1.95m x 0.98m), 4 upholstered dining chairs, Panasonic fridge/freezer, Bosch dishwasher, Bosch multi-function oven and Panasonic combination microwave, which can function as a second conventional oven should you wish to cook items at different temperatures.
Outside, there is a private garden (approximately 1000 m2), enclosed by one-metre-high picket fencing and hedging. Guests are welcome to walk in the rest of the owner's 2.5 acre grounds, where they might encounter two friendly and gentle golden retrievers.
Sun loungers and beach towels are provided.
The 10 x 5 metre swimming pool is situated close by, to the other side of the owner's house. There is a wet room in the pool house a few steps away from the pool, comprising WC, shower and hand basin. The pool is not heated, but the water reaches very pleasant temperatures when the water is hot.
The living room has a large sofa and UK Freesat TV.
Bed linen, towels and free Wifi are provided. Kindly note Wifi is capped at 40 Go per week.
Off-road parking is available about 20 m from the house, in the owner's grounds.
The property is of modern construction (2010) and therefore double glazed and fully insulated. There is no air conditioning, but due to the 'overhang' around the property, designed to keep the sun off the windows, the temperature inside generally remains comfortable during hot spells.
DOGS: Up to two well-behaved, quiet dogs may be accepted, subject to prior discussion with the owner. Please note that although the owner's golden retrievers do not roam freely at all times, guests may occasionally be subjected to waggy-tail greetings when coming and going - and a tennis ball might be presented for throwing. If you take up this invitation... you may be some time!
If you wish to bring your dog on holiday with you, please be aware that the owner's retrievers, although friendly and gentle, are entire males. If your dog has any issues with entire male dogs and/or is able or likely to scale the one metre high picket fence between La Puyadette and the owner's property, we would prefer you not to book this property. Also, please note that under no circumstances can female dogs in season or close to their season be accommodated.
Disability access: Please note there are 2 shallow steps on the path leading to the front door of the house. There is separate access to the house via double gates in the picket fence, across the lawn and into the house via sliding doors into the kitchen/diner. Unfortunately, however, owing to the size of the ensuite shower rooms and width of the doorways, the property is not suitable for wheelchair users.
