Chalets du Moulin

Editorial Description

Settled next to a 16th-century watermill these riverside holiday chalets offer a contemporary experience in a very peaceful location. The 'Chalets du Moulin' are located around an outdoor swimming pool, and come with private verandahs offering panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. There is a choice of 6 chalets, all well equipped inside and with a private area outside.

The river Arberoue flows right past the site, and it’s possible to canoe near the watermill. White water rafting and some more challenging canoeing is only a short drive away. For those wishing to spend some time enjoying the water in a more sedate way, fly fishing is also available at the watermill.

The local village, La Bastide Clairence, has been voted one of the most beautiful villages in France and the beaches of Biarritz (with some of the best surfing in Europe) are only 30 minutes away by car. In the winter, the Pyrenees are close at hand with the nearest ski resort only 1 hour away.


Six contemporary riverside chalets with heated pool near Biarritz, SW France. Each chalet is self-contained (30sqm), sleeping 2 adults and 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 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. Although we are in lovely peaceful countryside with the Pyrenees as a backdrop and just the sound of the river below, the Basque coastline and Biarritz, famous for its excellent surf conditions, is only a 30 minute drive away. The ideal base for exploring the Basque Country.
