MAISON

A family-run guesthouse in the south-west of France, between the mountains and the ocean, where you can be yourself.

WHY COME TO THE FOOTHILLS OF THE PYRENEES?

HERE YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO BE HAPPY: UBIQUITOUS TRANQUILITY, THE GENTLE SOUNDS AND GREENERY OF NATURE, FRENCH CUISINE … AND EXERCISE IN A PICTURESQUE SETTING.

We are a Czech family who traded their home in the centre of Prague for the foothills of the French Pyrenees.

We enjoy getting to know each and every one of our guests and are honoured to support you in getting to know the local French cuisine, the Béarn area and its history, culture and customs. We are happy to help you plan how to hike in the mountains, sleep by the lake at high altitude, indulge in cycling, golf, surfing, endless walks on the beach. We jump for joy when you choose to practice yoga, pilates, enjoy massages, play tennis, swim with us, and calm your mind with the sight of mountain peaks or the waves of the Atlantic Ocean.

Štěpán, the masseur of our guesthouse, is a unique creature because he is simply happy, and he passes on his joy of life to people through massages. He sees massage as a meditation, it gives him the opportunity to be present in the moment, with his experienced hands he brings you into another world for a beautiful 90 minutes. At the end of the massage, his clients feel like they are flowing off the massage table like water. He is also happy to give you advice on where to go in the mountains, sometimes even accompany you, where you can enjoy a good wine tasting and where they have the best cheeses and cold cuts. He likes to be involved in the organisation of sporting activities, especially when it involves the mountains or the ocean.mívají na konci masáže pocit, že z masážního stolu stečou jako voda. Rád vám i mimo jiné také poradí kam zajít do hor, někdy vás i doprovodí, kde je možné si užít dobrou ochutnávku vína a kde mají nejlepší sýry a uzeniny. Rád se účastní organizace sportovních aktivit, zvlášť když se to týká hor nebo oceánu.

Nikola, has been practicing yoga with love for over 8 years. She approaches life and the musculoskeletal system with humility and her passion is to show people that by consciously exercising and stretching we can not only feel good, but also know how to work with our bodies to keep them healthy. If you haven’t had the opportunity to learn about yoga, Nikola would love to introduce you to the world of yoga. What she really cares about is that her clients leave happy and happy to return, which is why she will accompany you throughout your stay. Among other things, she volunteers at an alternative nature school and loves writing, perhaps soon she will write her first book.

Joining our Czech family is French Anne-Sophie, who not only has her own secret recipe for chocolate mousse (mousse au chocolat), but also welcomes and accommodates you with a nice smile on her face. Her food will keep you dreaming sweet dreams at night. In addition to French, Anne-Sophie speaks English, German and Spanish.

Nina is a local French woman, flexible and muscular, she will do Pilates with you, play tennis or badminton, she knows secret trails in the mountains that will take you to places only locals know about, because the trails are supposedly marked, but somehow the signs are not visible. Nina will sleep with you in the open air or in a tent at high lakes or at the foot of rocks. With her, you can also reach the highest mountain peak of our nearest Pyrenees valley, the Valée d’Osseau, called Pic du Midi d’Ossau (2884m), but you need to be in really good shape for this trip. He speaks perfect French and is just now starting to learn English because of you.

Do naší české rodiny se připojila Francouzku Anne-Sophie, která má nejen svůj vlastní tajný recept na čokoládovou pěnu (mousse au chocolat), ale také vás přivítá a ubytuje milým úsměvem na tváři. O jejim jídle se vám v noci budou zdát sladké sny. Anne-Sophie mluví mimo francouzštiny i anglicky, německy a španělsky.

Nina, je místní Francouzka, ohebná a svalnatá, bude s vámi cvičit Pilates, hrát tenis nebo badminton, zná tajné stezky v horách, díky kterým se dostanete do míst, o kterých vědí jen místní obyvatelé, protože stezky jsou prý značené, ale ty značky nějak nejsou vidět. Nina s vámi přespí pod širým nebem nebo ve stanu u vysoko ložených jezer nebo na úpatí skal. S ní se dostanete i na nejvyšší vrcholek hor našeho nejbližšího údolí Pyrenejí Valée d’Osseau, který se jmenuje Pic du Midi d’Ossau (2884 m.n.m.), ale na tenhle výlet je dobré být v opravdu dobré formě. Mluví perfektně francouzsky a kvůli vám se právě nyní začíná učit anglicky

Štěpán, masér našeho penzionu, je unikátní stvoření, protože je jednoduše šťastný, a svou radost ze života předává lidem masážemi. Masáž vnímá jako meditaci, dává mu příležitost být v daném okamžiku přítomný, svýma zkušenýma rukama vás uvede na krásných 90 minut do jiného světa. Jeho klienti mívají na konci masáže pocit, že z masážního stolu stečou jako voda. Rád vám i mimo jiné také poradí kam zajít do hor, někdy vás i doprovodí, kde je možné si užít dobrou ochutnávku vína a kde mají nejlepší sýry a uzeniny. Rád se účastní organizace sportovních aktivit, zvlášť když se to týká hor nebo oceánu.

Nikola, se věnuje s láskou už přes 8 let józe. Přistupuje k životu a pohybovému aparátu s pokorou a její vášní je ukázat lidem, že vědomým cvičením a protahováním se můžeme cítit nejen dobře, ale i umět se svým tělem pracovat, aby bylo zdravé. Pokud jste ještě neměli příležitost se s jógou seznámit, Nikola vás velice ráda do světa jógy uvede. Na čem jí opravdu záleží je, aby klienti odcházeli spokojení a rádi se vraceli, i proto vás bude provázet po celou dobu pobytu. Mimo jiné pracuje jako dobrovolník v alternativní přírodní škole a miluje psaní, možná už brzo napíše svoji první knihu.
