Atypical farm experience




Farm Stay


This weekend, take the kids to the farm and discover pastoral activities with the whole family.
You'll enjoy an unusual experience with Régis the shepherd. Régis breeds Basque-Béarnaise ewes on a human-scale farm. His 130 ewes graze from June 1 to early October in the Laruns mountains of the Ossau Valley.
The milk is transformed into tomme from December 1st to the end of May on the farm, then from June 1st on to the summer pastures at 1300m altitude.
Your weekend is punctuated by farm chores (suckling lambs, hand-milking, caring for the ewes, cheese-making...), which doesn't mean you can't enjoy skiing, snowshoeing or hiking during your stay. 
An original tourist experience, immersed in the daily life of a farm in Laruns in the Ossau Valley, which will also allow you to taste at home, after a few months of maturing,
the sheep's milk cheese you've made with him.
You'll stay in a comfortable apartment in the heart of the village, in an Ossalois house.


  • 3-day / 2-night stay
  • Accommodation in a comfortable *** apartment
  • 1/2 board accommodation
  • Stay at the farm
  • Opportunity to buy the cheese you have made
  • Free time to enjoy the activities on offer in the Ossau Valley: skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, etc.


Day 1 
Arrive late in the day at your accommodation and settle in.
Régis has prepared a basket for you to cook as you wish, and will brief you on the organization of the weekend.

Day 2 
Breakfast is provided by Régis.
You'll watch the ewes being milked, helping him to look after the animals: suckling the lambs, caring for the ewe lambs and making the cheese.
If conditions permit, the ewes will go out into the meadows close to the farm. During this time, you'll help the shepherd prepare mulch and prepare the evening meal for the flock.
Lunch at leisure.
In the late afternoon, if you feel like it, you can join Régis at the sheepfold to "look after" the flock!
Dinner at a Laruns inn selected by Régis.

Day 3 
After breakfast, provided by Régis, you join him to share another moment in the life of a shepherd...
