Faithfully restored, this affluent family home offers an insight into the history of a sumptuous era when the mountain resort of Pau was at its most fashionable, at the end of the 19th century. The very British charm of the Villa Navarre is part of its timeless appeal. The spaciousness of the hotel is best appreciated in the lounges, the covered terrace that runs along the façade and the rooms. The views from the bedroom windows are stunning, overlooking the grounds planted with rare species of trees and facing the Pyrenees. Deciding whether to head for the pool that shares the views or the cleverly designed fitness centre in the former wine cellar is a real dilemma.
