We got a warm welcome from Richard and the house had everything we needed. It was spotlessly clean and equipped with tasteful furnishings. We will return next autumn for more walking and eating!

                                                                                                      The chalet we booked was in great condition, well equipped and spacious. 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.

The booking was straightforward and the owner friendly and efficient. We had previously stayed here so knew what to expect but it has undergone some improvements and is all the better for it. When we arrived, the villa was spotless and was equipped with everything you could possibly need for a holiday stay so no need to take any little extras that we normally do when staying away. The location is absolutely stunning, set in a small village nestled amongst the mountain scenery. The pool is beautiful, a good size and well maintained by the caretaker who lives nearby. He is a gem of a neighbour, a lovely, friendly man, on call in case of any problems and happy to share his local knowledge of places and things to do. There is so much to do in and around the surrounding area to suit all tastes. As is our habit, we like to have a day out and then have the next day off, to recover! We still managed to do so much, even with days off factored in. The nearby Villefranche de Conflent is a definite must see. We spent time wandering the little streets and had a meal in one of the restaurants there, Le Patio, which was delicious (we would recommend the brochettes either with beef or duck) YUM! We also took a hair raising 4x4 trip up to the Fort above the village (not for the fainthearted!), wandered around the fort and then tackled the 500+ steps down through the tunnel back to the village. Great fun! Another day was spent in Carcassonne, about an hour and a half by car but well worth a day out as it is a beautiful, walled, Medieval city. Le Petit Train Jaune leaves from nearby Villefranche and was also amazing. We travelled as far as Font Romeu, happy to just sit back and take in the breath taking scenery , don't forget your camera. The highlight of our trip was a boat trip, dolphin watching (Navivoile.com) We left from Port Vendres and spent a wonderful few hours in the company of some beautiful bottlenose dolphins. Obviously it is not guaranteed that you will see any, but we hit the jackpot and were thrilled and enchanted by them for nearly 2 hours. Wow! An amazing experience. The crew were fantastic and very knowledgeable, there was a snack bar on board as well as very good facilities. We had an absolutely amazing time in this beautiful villa. We would thoroughly recommend the property and will certainly be returning soon. Thank you so much.
