Description of Chalets du Moulin Bed & Breakfast:Each chalet sleeps 2 adults and they are situated on the hillside amongst the trees next to our 16th century watermill on the River Arberoue and in the heart of the Basque Countryside. The 10 x 3m heated swimming pool is in the middle of the chalets with stunning views over the surrounding countryside. The chalet is on the same level as the pool and set apart and they all face a slightly different angle giving each outlook and verandah privacy. The property is located in a small hamlet just outside the village of La Bastide Clairence, voted one of the most beautiful villages in France. All local amenities are available in the village which is a 5 minute drive away. There is a bar in the hamlet within easy walking distance. Although we are in lovely peaceful countryside with the Pyrenees as a backdrop and just the sound of the river below, the Basque coastline, famous for its excellent surf conditions, is only a 25 minute drive away. The ideal base for exploring the Basque Country. Free wifi. Each chalet has a barbecue and, as well as the verandah with table and chairs, there is also an outside area with 2 sun chairs. There is a heated 3x10.5m swimming pool (pool heated from early May to end September/early October) with wooden decking area with sun beds situated in the middle of the hillside and chalets, giving easy access from all chalets. There is also salon furniture by the pool for evening cocktails and for enjoying the spectacular sunsets and views. There is also a badminton net with rackets set up just below the woods. We also have a very long river bank where we have 2 friendly goats: Dolly and Lottie.
