With a spacious kitchen, sunny sitting room and double doors which open onto a private terrace Orchard Cottage offers a picturesque, relaxed setting to enjoy your holiday.

Set in seven acres of private grounds belonging to a manor house which dates back to 1376, you can take in the lovely views over the countryside and to the Pyrénées beyond. Throughout the gardens and grounds, you will find peaceful, shady spots to relax in. Settle down with a good book on one of the garden benches, or just while away the time sunbathing around the beautiful pool.

Peacefully located but within easy reach of the beach, mountains, historic towns and wonderful countryside.

Our second week at Domaine Lavie. Easy 40 minute drive from Biarritz airport through gently rolling hills. Our first week spent at Courtyard Cottage (already rated) and our second at Orchard Cottage (which is more roomy) as our nieces were joining us. Loved this cottage...More

About the neighbourhood
There are activities galore for everyone all year round. As well as tennis, horse riding and fishing, there are 15 golf courses within an hour's drive for golfers, and miles and miles of golden sands on the nearby Atlantic coast for surfers. The magnificent scenery of the Pyrénées is an hour away for skiers, bird-watchers and walkers - or you could just stay at Domaine-de-Lavie and laze by the pool.

Domaine-de-Lavie is close to the picturesque town of Salies-de-Béarn. The town takes its name from the Saleys - a small tranquil river which snakes past quaint 17th and 18th-century half-timbered buildings, some of which stand on pillars on the river banks.
