Enclos Bearnais

The Owners

We are both of Belgian origin,  we  have had the project  to  move to the South of France  for several years.Rodolphe et Francoise

My wife , Françoise  had a work opportunity to relocate to Pau, and we discovered   Béarn  and  were immediately captivated by the charm , beauty , authenticity of the countryside with the simplicity and  friendliness of the local population.

We  are passionate about the local lifestyle and have fallen in love with this « Enclos » béarnais  and « Gave » stonework at the foot of the Pyrenees mountains.

Having started my life in the restaurant and hotel business, the preparation of  local  typical delicacies is a real passion of mine. Naturally we wish to share our big house and our love of the area with passing  guests.

I discovered  working with wood as a second interest of mine while searching in the four corners of the region  for furniture and knick knacks to furnish the house. I continue to give a second life to objects in my workshop  which is located in a converted  barn.
