La Joie de Vivre lies in one of the most beautiful, varied and fascinating parts of France. To the South lies the Pyrenees, one of Europe's most spectacular mountain ranges, on the borders of France and Spain. To the North Bordeaux, famed for its legendry status as one of the premier wine growing regions of the world. To the East is the most dramatic city of Carcassonne (world heritage listed) and the Mediterranean coast, and to the West is Pau with its relaxed and friendly elegance and the Atlantic surfing mecca of Biarritz.
La Joie de Vivre was built in 1851 and is a classical French Maison d'Maitre. Standing in 2.5 acres of wooded parkland, the house has been renovated to provide small boutique style bed and breakfast accommodation, with just 5 beautifully renovated rooms.
With its outlook onto the Pyrenees, shaded grounds, comfortable rooms and access to some of the best outdoor recreation areas anywhere in the world, La Joie de Vivre offers the opportunity to unwind and relax or feed your passions for adventure.
