THE LOCAL AREA
Aramits is in the Béarn, one of the ancient French provinces in the south-western Pyrénées and at the gateway to the Soule, one of the three provinces of the picturesque French Basque Country. It is close to the Spanish border, Pau, Lourdes and an easy drive from the famous beach resorts of the Atlantic coast, such as Biarritz and Saint-Jean-de-Luz. Toulouse, Bordeaux, San-Sebastián and Bilbao are all within easy reach.
Popular with tourists all the year round for hiking, mountain-biking, white-water rafting and fishing, the region also offers a range of winter sports (downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing) with easy access to numerous ski stations. For those preferring beach-based activities (especially surfing) the famous resorts of the Atlantic coast are less than two hours away (Biarritz, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Hossegor...).
The property is on the Béarn/Basque border and is close to the Bearnaise villages of Aramits and Esquiule and the basque village of Barcus. Aramits (4 minutes’ drive) has an Intermarché Contact supermarket and most essential services and Barcus is very well known for its rugby team and gourmet restaurant! The weekday bus to Oloron-Ste-Marie can be caught in Aramits - and during the skiing season, the bus goes up to the La-Pierre-St-Martin ski resort at the weekend. For a greater choice of shops, Oloron-Ste-Marie is about 20 minutes away, where you can catch the train to Pau or the long-distance coach to Toulouse, Lyon or Spain.
Buses to the surrounding villages and to Oloron-Ste-Marie can be caught from a bus stop right outside the house. The buses run every weekday throughout the year. During the skiing season, buses go up to the ski resort at La-Pierre-St-Martin at the weekends. School buses to secondary schools in Oloron-Ste-Marie, Mauléon-Licharre and Arette also stop here.
Film buffs might be interested to know that the town of Oloron-Sainte-Marie and several of the picturesque villages of the Vallée d’Aspe have recently been chosen as film locations, most notably for two French films starring the Oscar winner, Jean Dujardin, and an English film, "Waiting for Anya" based on the Michael Morpurgo book set in France in the Second World War. Not only is the stunning, unspoilt countryside of the Béarn perfect for filmmakers, but enthusiastic locals are often encouraged to volunteer as extras to appear alongside the international film stars - next time, that could be you!
