It is just a short, scenic 10 minute riverside walk to the local bistro and boulangerie in the village of Sahorre.  The famous spa town of Vernet les Bains is less than 2 miles away with a wider selection of shops, activities and restaurants.  There are many local markets to explore and fêtes and festivals are a regular feature of village life.

Sahorre forms part of the Parc Naturel Régionel des Pyrénées Catalanes and this stunning area is steeped in culture and history with many of France’s most beautiful villages located within a short drive.

The area is a paradise for hikers with many miles of superb walks straight from the house.  You will find a huge range of other sports and activities available nearby – from mountain biking to white water rafting – even the most active group could find a different activity for every day!

Renowned as the sunniest area of France with a glorious 300 days of sunshine every year, La Châtaigneraie is beautiful all year round.  Just 40 minutes from ski resorts and 45 minutes from sandy Mediterranean beaches we offer the best of both worlds.  It is easy to reach by air, road or rail and well-served by low-cost airlines.
