It is well-equipped including a washer-dryer and good internet connection. It is small but spacious enough for two people. The terrace gets plenty of sun; there is parking outside. The owner is very helpful and flexible (for example, we arrived and left on a Tuesday). The only improvement would be to have a window - we left the door open at night as we like fresh air. Font Romeu is a wonderful place for walking, running and biking. It was very quiet when we visited in September - October; the weather was fantastic.

                                                                                                      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.

I checked the guest book and I had indeed stayed as a guest back in June 2007 in the same apartment!! It was all I remembered and felt fantastic to be back in such a great apartment and beautiful surroundings. Rae was a great help welcoming us and recommending places to go. The apartment was well equipped and a haven to come back to each evening after our adventures. Relaxing on the patio wine in hand and views out of picture books!! Awesome to drive up the route of the mountain stage of the Tour de France - right on the doorstep, to the ski station at plateau de beille. We took one of the hiking routes up in the clouds and took in the spectacular Pyrenees views. The village Les Cabannes(5 mins walk) had a fantastic restaurant ( A La Montanha) that served wonderful local produce -a gem!! I hope to keep your details and would love to visit again sooner rather than later. Thanks again Andrea and Herman
