    Description

    Domaine Lavie is an elegant manoir near the spa town of Salies de Béarn. The Pyrénées and Spain are less than an hour's drive away, as are the golden sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast.

    Set in seven acres of private grounds, Domaine Lavie dates back to the time of Gaston Febus in 1376. The house was first owned by Pierre Seigneur-de-Lavie, after whom the surrounding area was also named.

    In the 18th-century, the main house was enlarged and remodelled, and its appearance has changed very little since then.

    The Domaine's former farm buildings have been converted into four independent holiday cottages, each with its own private terrace.

    From the large 14m x 8m swimming pool, there are lovely views over the countryside and to the Pyrénées beyond.

    Courtyard Cottage, in the courtyard of Domaine Lavie, accommodates up to 4 people. The cottage is surrounded by flowering oleander and has views through the courtyard gate to the pool and valley beyond.. It also has a charming stone patio equipped with garden furniture and a gas barbecue. The cottage has gas central heating and is available all year round.

    The cottage has an airy sitting room with a sofa, armchairs, a TV, and DVD-player. The kitchen/dining room has a table and chairs, a dishwasher, a gas hob, an electric oven, a fridge, a microwave, a toaster, Senseo coffee machine and a washing machine.

    It has two bedrooms - one with a double bed, the other with twin beds. There is also a shower room and a WC.

    Location description

    Domaine 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.
    Salies de Béarn is known as the City of Salt. Every year, the Fête du Sel takes place during the second week of September. The whole town takes part in celebrating what they call "White Gold". During the fête, salt is taken from the river and used to cure delicious Bayonne ham.
    The famous "thermes" in Salies are reputed to cure all sorts of ailments. The thermal baths are open to the public for beauty treatments, as well as for the healing properties of the spas.
    The weekly Salies market is the place to buy delicious fresh produce all year round, although many of the local delicacies can be sampled at local fêtes which are held throughout the spring, summer and autumn. The fêtes normally last several days and celebrate anything from "garbure" (the local soup) to "pipérade" (a Basque pepper stew) - all seasoned with Salies salt, of course!

    Other activities

    Domaine Lavie is in the Béarn region of south-west France. It is a wonderful area overflowing with historic sites, ancient châteaux, picturesque villages, lively markets and excellent cuisine. The fabulous towns of Biarritz, St-Jean-de-Luz, Bayonne and Pau are all within easy reach, as are several wine regions. San-Sebastián in northern Spain is a great place to go if you fancy going abroad for the day!
    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.

    Tourist attractions

    A little history...
    Salies de Béarn is thought to date back to at least 1500BC. During the Bronze Age, a group of people settled in a muddy swamp without knowing they were actually living in a salt marsh. Salies grew in importance when the "white gold" was discovered and subsequently extracted. In 1523, much of the town was destroyed by a fire started by Spanish soldiers. In the second half of the 19th century, the "thermes" at Salies became a major draw for visitors - and remain so today. The thermal waters are enriched with salt and minerals and are said to miraculously cure certain medical problems, notably rheumatic diseases.

    Salt
    A local legend recounts the story of how salt was originally discovered at Salies. Hunters injured a boar which then managed to cross a muddy marsh before dying a little further on. When found, the dead animal's body had been completely preserved (by the salt) and was encrusted with salt crystals - and even today, salt from Salies is still used to cure the local Bayonne ham! From 4BC to 1BC, relics show that the Gallo-Romans definitely extracted salt at Salies - and the discovery of a pan for making salt dates back as far as 9AD. In 1841, salt works were built and salt-making in Salies finally became a major commercial business for the town.
