The house

The two large main rooms are the kitchen / dining room and the living room, around a central fireplace which diffuses its warm atmosphere. The dining room table can comfortably seat 12 to 16 people. The rooms are well isolated from each other, to preserve everyone’s privacy. L’Ermitage is organized on three levels.

In compliance with the “Sustainable Tourism” certification, the house has an optimized energy and water use system. Cleaning products as well as soaps and shampoos are organic and most often locally made. Everything has been planned to best respect the environment. The “Sustainable Tourisms” label is the only official European ecological label.

The kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of a home. The room which brings people together and spend time simmering diners and drinking good beverages . That’s why we made the kichen spacious, friendly and fully equipped with high quality appliances and utensils. It has been designed by a Chef to guarantee you the best playground in which to explore your creativity.
You will find pretty handcrafted tableware and decorative elements to set beautiful tables.

The living room

Two large comfortable sofas face each other around an old door turned into a coffee table. A library is at your disposal with a selection of books about the Landes, the Basque Country and Béarn, visit guides as well as novels and litterature, as well as board games: Trivial Pursuit, chess, checkers, Monopoly, scrabble, backgamon etc… A large TV screen is set on wheels so you can move it wherever you want. A big bluetooth speaker is also at your disposal.

The Bedrooms

The level of comfort of the rooms has rightly contributed to the 5-star classification of the cottage.

They are furnished with King size beds which quality is at the level of the best hotels. The beds can be seperated in two single beds, ideal for children or team retreats. The upstairs bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning. There is a desk and storage in each of them. Each room has its own unique atmosphere.
