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.

The views from the property towards Mt Canigou are stunning and the house is perfectly located for those who wish to enjoy this wonderful area. We enjoyed several walks high up in the mountains (and even over the Spanish border) as well as some less strenuous walks in the foothills starting at the back gate... There are a wide variety of beautiful/historic villages and monasteries to visit locally as well as many other sites (e.g Cathar castles) that are only just over 1hr drive. On the more relaxing days we stayed in the house and enjoyed the garden, the views and the great swimming pool. The property is spacious and well equipped (best of all there is no TV! But don't worry, the WiFi will keep the children happy!) This is obviously a well-loved and well-used family property, the interior is slightly dated in places, but everything was clean and in good working order. There was also great information provided on things to do locally, as well as detailed descriptions of walks and a great library. The owners were extremely helpful in all aspects of the arrangements. We would happily return to enjoy this great location.
