Would be even better if there was a guest book with instructions on how to use wood stove, things to do in local area etc.

However we are a family of 4 in a place that has enough beds to sleep 10 and we envisage that the property might feel somewhat cramped with that many people in it. Location is utterly brilliant for mountain views, hiking, horse riding, cycling, playing in the river or just lazing around. It is very quiet and peaceful (until we arrived 😉), but picturesque Ax les Thermes is only a 10 minute drive away with a decent range of restaurants. Car hire essential and having conversational French would be helpful because English is not widely spoken. The key area the owner could develop is customer service, hence why we rated the place 4 stars instead of 5. We hired sheets but when we were let into the chalet by a local couple, they essentially tossed the sheets on the couch and we had to make our own beds. After 12 hours travelling, this was not the most relaxing start to our holiday. We also paid 50 euros to get the place cleaned which, in our opinion, is hugely expensive. We made very little mess, but we didn't want to spend the last day of our hard earned holiday time doing it ourselves. We own a rental property and include linen, towels and the cleaning of the property within our rental price so were slightly disappointed by this. For British visitors, we found customer service in the area generally less of a priority than Brits are use to. That said, our holiday was very enjoyable and we will be back in the Pyrenees in the future.

We stayed in Fuilla for a week and wished it was for longer. It was truly home from home, it was comfortable, everything you might need was there. Great location, easy to pop into Spain for the day. The pool was fabulous we had a great time splashing about in it.The owner is very helpful and friendly as is the manager who came over to make sure all was well. Can't wait to go again. I miss Mount Canigou. WARNING! !! You will too.
