The region

French Character Homes is based in Pau, in the Pyrenees Atlantic region of South West France : just one hour from both the ski slopes of the Pyrenees and the sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast. Winter snow sports and summer beach activities make the region an ideal choice for an all year round holiday home and an equally great lifestyle choice as a main residence.
