Beautiful location, beautiful house!

  • Review Submitted: 23-Sep-2013

We enjoyed a fantastic 3 week family holiday in this beautiful house. The location is stunning with plenty of things to do locally if you can be bothered to leave the pool and hammock! We loved the lake, local towns (especially the flea markets) and our 2 boys are now addicted to duck and chips after an unforgettable evening with the duck and chip man. Both Julie and Mark were excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble, even providing our youngest daughter with a spoonful of calpol when she was feeling a little bit poorly, the kids were totally amazed by the biggest homemade chocolate cake in the world left in the fridge on our arrival. The house was very welcoming and there was nothing to fault, everything we could have wanted was provided. We enjoyed fresh eggs from the free range hens, courgettes, potatoes, tomatoes, onions, garlic and salad leaves from the garden. Would recommend a visit to Pyrenees Ho where the children enjoyed zip wiring and then a wander around Luchon for a day out. All in all we enjoyed a holiday where all 4 children (ranging in age from 5 to 17) were more than happy and have all asked to go back next year! Don't think you can get a better recommendation than that!!!

Wonderful relaxing stay for us and the kids!

We had a fabulous time staying at Mark and Julie's property. The house is spacious and has all the mod cons you could need for relaxing, cooking and entertainment! The pool and large garden were wonderful for the kids as were the chickens - they loved collecting the eggs and feeding them. We enjoyed lots of lovely fresh vegetables from the garden and lots of great hospitality including a wonderful final evening out with.... ''The Duck Man'' - you'll have to book and then ask Julie and Mark for the secret location of this fabulous eatery!! We enjoyed some cycling, lake visits, sightseeing and even a trip to Carcassone whilst we were there but most of all we just enjoyed relaxing at the house and eating lots of great food and drinking wine in the beautiful outdoor seating area. Thoroughly recommend staying here!
Owner's Response: Remember, those of you that are considering staying at Las Bordes, that, all guests at Las Bordes get the benifit of the Duck and Chip man's secret location! Looking forward to seeing you all soon xx

Rural charm and chickens

A delightful rural setting, with the snow capped pyrenees almost in sight, and pleasant house and grounds. Well equipped with lots of welcoming touches. We spent a week mostly lazing around reading books, for which it was ideal. Hens and ducks wandering around added to the charm. Plunge pool a real bonus on hot days. Good value.
Might be a bit out of the way for those wanting lots of activities locally.

Relaxing stay in stunning setting

We have been lucky enough to have visited 'Las Bordes' on three occaisions now, twice with the children for a family break and once childfree, just my husband & I. The hammock was so inviting that within an a couple of hours of getting off the plane my husband was snoozing in there with a beer in hand! The flight was easy we chose Manchester to Toulouse less than 2 hours in the air then a short 1 hour transfer to 'Las Bordes' helps to make the start of the holiday stress free too! We enjoyed visiting Spain whos border is less than 2 hours away by car and white water rafting was amazing too! Being surrounded by the pyrenees is amazing as whether out for a walk or a drive the scenery never ceases to amaze & wow. Our hosts Julie & Mark made our stay at 'Las Bordes' a very comfortable, relaxing & entertaining break for us all, would highly recommend a visit!
