    We had a pleasant stay. The place is warm and aspires to rest. We appreciated the large bathroom adjoining the bedroom which is superb. The cottage is ideally located for hiking or skiing. Jean-Marc and his companion welcomed us warmly, are attentive and accommodating. We took the meal as well as the breakfast at the lodge which were plentiful and very good. Finally, we enjoyed eating local products whose quality was remarkable.

    I stayed from 31/10 to 01/11 at the gite "le couvent D'Ossau". To begin with, Jean Marc and his wife are welcoming, attentive and very friendly. Meals are homemade and plentiful (I can guarantee you won't be hungry)! That evening, there were 8 of us around this large table. I was lucky that this brave meal was so good and to have had interesting and pleasant people around me. It was my first experience alone in a gite and I absolutely loved it. I again thank Jean Marc, his wife and the guests for this moment. I recommend 100%! See you soon, I hope !

    We had an excellent stay at Le Couvent d'Ossau, where we stopped for two nights to recharge our batteries during a long hike. Very warm welcome from Mylène and Jean-Marc who do everything possible to allow their guests to feel good in this authentic and very pleasant place. The house is magnificent, the rooms tastefully decorated and impeccably clean, and the garden calm and very relaxing. The table is also of high quality: hearty, succulent dishes cooked with local products. I highly recommend this stopover lodge.
