Golfing is available at the nearby 4 star hotel/golf course. Access to the golf course with all the facilities offered by a 4 star hotel is within a 10 minute drive. The green fees are incredibly low for the quality of the course, and with an idilyic setting a brilliant setting for a round of golf.


The cottage offers views across the valley to the rolling hills and forests surrounding area, with a vast amount of Flora and Fauna in the immediate area and many birds, including birds of prey, deer and wild boar.
One of the most popular leisure activities at Chez Jabier is relaxing by the pool, enjoying a bottle of locally produced wine and watching the sun set across the valley.
