The location is also great as it's close to the ski gondola and town and is right by the river. Once we arrived we were however hit with extra charges that wasn't clear on the site, such as being charged extra for bedding and towels, or for use of the fire. In the description it states that they're provided, therefore it should state that you need to pay for these. But lovely place despite that.

We did feel that it was not very well equipped. The house advertises that it sleeps 8.however there were only 5 mugs and small selection of glasses.all different shapes and sizes.I also think they should say before booking that you have to bring sheets and towels.as this could be difficult for guests arriving by plane. Also. I feel also if you advertise a wood burning stove.they should provide some wood as a starter pack.we have always had wood supplied at other chalets we stayed at. The contact was not good. I tried to find out about arrival and keys by email.with no answer. Eventually got through by phone. These are points that I think are fair to mention.however it is a very comfortable house and I would recommend it to other people for family holiday

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      We were made immediately welcome by owner Michel who gave us a quick tour of everything and some background to the cottage. It is very well set out and everything clean and bright. It is situated adjacent to a babbling stream, with trout and birds to watch. Our only initial problem was that as Australian visitors we do not carry bed linen with us, but Michel quickly organised that. We also found the bright street lights strange, but good shutters fix that issue at night and it is a heavenly peaceful place. The village is gorgeous, very pretty and friendly, tucked into a fold of the mountains, and extremely interesting. If you get a chance, go visit the Ecomusee up the road 800 metres from the cottage. There you can hear how this village came into being in a very different way from many other older established settlements, and also about the rise of women shepherds in the region. There are many good walks to be found, and good shopping a bit of a drive away - there are no shops in the village. The nearest big town is Oloron Ste Marie, which has a great market and some friendly cafes and eateries, along with beautiful old architecture and the river. In the opposite direction at Accus, not far away from Lourdios, you can go and shop, then watch hang gliders coming down a mountain while enjoying a good meal (along with the resident cat). The black currant tart was to die for. All up a great place to stay, I would recommend it to anyone.
