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.

A pop-up cafe opens over the summer months, at lunchtime, and all basic necessities can be purchased from the next town, a few km down the mountain. The surrounding area is also well worth exploring. We particularly liked Eus, a small hilltop village, about 45 min. drive away, and the town of Villefranche de Conflent is also fascinating, with a superb castle (and pleasant restaurant) perched on the top of a very steep hill. The accommodation is essentially an open-plan studio, with sofa bed, and an outdoor, covered area overlooking the garden and hillside. The equipment and maintenance of the property are good. Communication prior to arrival with the owners was excellent. They are welcoming and friendly, and sometimes use the other half of the mountain chalet, which has separate access. An added boon is that dogs are welcome, and a mountain track leads up into the hills from right outside the door.

                                                                                                      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.
