“Excellent gite”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed here for a week in July 2015. We are a party of 4 adults and the accommodation was perfect for us with 2 double en-suite bedrooms and spacious, comfortable, well equipped living room and kitchen. The weather was hot during our stay and we were glad to get back to the cool gite after days out in the sun. The location of the gite is very good with an excellent boulangerie and supermarket 5 minutes walk away, and the lovely town of Navarrenx also within easy walking distance. Shona and Ken were great hosts and were able to offer us advice on local restaurants and places of interest to visit.
We've stayed in many gites over the last 35 years and I can honestly say that this is one of the very best.

“Lovely property, well appointed, nice quiet location.”

We stayed six nights at the property. We really enjoyed the house. We were a party of 5. So needed the bedroom space. The house is well appointed. We would return to stay again. It is a peaceful location. With young children you will need to have a plan of activities as the location is rural. We found that it offered the best of access to the sea, 1 hour and access to Pau/Pyrenees too. There are lots of physical activities in the surrounding areas with a file of possible outings located in the house.

Ken and Shona made us feel very welcome and provided us with lots of information and tips on the best places to visit. The house was comfortable, immaculate and had everything we needed. The garden was great and very safe for our toddler who loved playing in it. The coast and the mountains are within driving distance of the house, as well as plenty of other attractions.

“A Perfect Family Holiday Home”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

We recently spent 10 wonderful days at Les Trois Ânes with our young son, and could easily have stayed the entire season. Shona and Ken are fabulous hosts and have equipped the gîte with everything for a comfortable holiday. The décor is lovely and comfortable, suitable for young children as well as any group. There is ample seating at the dining table and the garden table, board games, DVDs in French and English, and of course the resident donkeys. The enclosed garden with BBQ, loungers and dining table are perfect for restful days at home. The Béarne area is full of historic, cultural, geological and religious sites to keep everyone busy. Walking paths, shopping, fishing, restaurants and museums are within a short walk. Beaches, high Pyrenees peaks and caves are within an easy drive. We'll be back to enjoy many different seasons at gîte Les Trois Ânes.

“Charming, peaceful house, helpful owners, lovely location”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Les Trois Anes is a spacious 300 year old house on 3 levels, with 2 large bedrooms and 2 smaller attic bedrooms. It has been beautifully restored with all modern conveniences and yet the owners have maintained authentic charm, with exposed original beams and sections of Gascon stone walls. It is more spacious than the photos indicate. Ken and Shona have thought of every item their guests might need to be comfortable: guide books, a wide range of kitchenware, dinner ware and glassware, comfortable beds etc. There is an efficient dishwasher and clothes washer/drier. The house is next door to the owners' home, but has its own spacious garden, with outdoor table, chairs, sun lounges and barbecue. This is a beautiful part of France, and staying in this house really added to our enjoyment of the region. Ken and Shona are English, and both speak French. They have lived in the area for about 10 years, so are wonderfully helpful with restaurant suggestions and so on. You can book direct on their website. http://lestroisanes.weebly.com/
