About the property

A small group of privately owned apartments with shared garden and pool.

As suggested by its name, the restorative waters of Aulus-les-Bains have attracted visitors from far and wide for well over a century. In addition to offering relief from a range of metabolic disorders including high cholesterol, the thermal baths now include a range of spa beauty treatments which, in combination with the beauty and tranquility of the surrounding countryside, are sure to aid relaxation. However, Aulus and the surrounding area cater for all ages and tastes with restaurants, cafes, an adventure playground and a wide range of sporting activities including equestrian, water sports, cycling, tennis and fishing. During the winter the local ski resort of Guzet-Neige offers a range of activities suitable for all the family in addition to downhill skiing. Venturing out of Aulus and into the Ariege a wealth of popular destinations can be found close by including historic towns, caves and and even the small but diverse principality of Andorra nestling between France and Spain.

About Jill Allcroft

Established in France for 24 yrs as both gite owners and a building firm, we bought a run down hotel 12 years ago and converted the 27 bedrooms into 11 apartments. The conversion was carried out to a very high standard as befits a builder who did a lot of the work himself but brought in specialist artisans such as roofers, where required. We live in the next departement where Richard continues in the building trade and Jill has recently opened a brocante business.

Jill Allcroft purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Jill Allcroft chose Aulus-les-Bains

Having been on board from the beginning of the conversion and having either completed the work ourselves or overseen other professionals doing so, we are confident in recommending it. The garden area and the swimming pool are shared but the mix of Dutch, English, Welsh and French owners ensures a convivial atmosphere where English and French are understood. The village is small but well equipped with services likely to ensure a relaxed stay for all, Mum included! Restaurants, shops and the local spa means all interests are catered for and the kids can expend some energy in the local park while Mum indulges in a little pampering.

What makes this apartment unique

The thermal baths are great for relaxing after either a day sightseeing or skiing and a number of options such as massage are offered so do be sure to find out in advance and make a reservation to avoid disappointment.

For the winter holiday makers there is a bus which travels from the village to the local ski resort so you don't need to drive. If a party member is not particularly keen on skiing, the local tourist office will advise on other events in the area.

In summer the local counrtyside is a haven for walkers with marked walks offering shaded randonees where the local flora and fauna can be enjoyed.

Beautiful apartment in beautiful mountain village in an incredible mountainous region

  • 5 of 5

Great host with a warm welcome who has set up the apartment really well and has put together a truly great authentic holiday residence together with large ample rooms that are well presented and equipped. Lovely dramatic walks all around. One of the most beautiful places we've ever been too. The village is a delight and in mid May, so quiet we virtually had the place to ourselves which we enjoyed greatly.

Confort et raffinement

  • 5 of 5

Logement spacieux, confortable, très propre et bien éclairé tout au long du jour par les 6 fenêtres des 3 façades. Les teintes douces de la décoration sont harmonieuses, reposantes, et permettent aux hôtes de s'y sentir chez eux. Les lits faits, le linge fourni et les 2 salles de bain avec wc procurent un confort rare et appréciable.

Les équipements sanitaires de qualité facilitent l'entretien.

Bon rapport qualité - prix.

Le village est agréable, dispose de commerces alimentaires satisfaisants et propose de belles randonnées ; un beau lieu à découvrir.

comfortably relaxed at an interesting place

  • 5 of 5

a cosy-comfortable flat in a very quiet village at the end of an ice-age carved Pyrenée valley surrounded by 1400, 1900 up to 2400m high mountains. In the pre-war times a once favoured recreation place (thermes are there today too) it is today especially visited in winter and holiday times, when we've been there we found a more quiet, almost empty village with the charme of a forgotten past inmidst the beauty of a wild nature.

The place is an excellent "base" for hiking tours into the mountains and excursions to neighboured valleys, the nice pittoresque villages and exciting caves of the "Couserans" and Pyrenée Nature Park. Hiking up to the impressive waterfall is a must and absolutely worth all the effort.

The apartment is spacious and well equipped, evrything needed available and totally comfortable for a relaxed vacation. Each bedroom has an own bathroom, which is perfect for more persons and families. The pool down in the backyard is nice although at our time still too cool for us, however sure great in hot summer days. W-LAN/wifi one gets outside at the tourist office 30 m down the street.

A nice, historic-feeling traditional restaurant/bar is just next door, a friendly couple serving good and not expensive meals. familiar, relaxed athmosphere. :-))

Jill and Richard, the landlords, invested a lot of love into the old building a former hotel; they are extremely friendly, open hearted and helpful with hints and infos.

Unfortunately we've been there onlyfor 3 days ... next time will be, must be muuuch longer !

Thank you for the nice stay ! and all the best for you all the way from Germany.

Super gemütlich

  • 5 of 5

Eine urgemütliche Wohnung in e. sehr ruhigen Dorf am Ende eines i.d. Eiszeit entstandenen Pyrenäentales umgeben von Bergen zw. 1400, 1900 bis 2400 m Höhe. In Vorkriegszeiten ein beliebter Kur- und Erholungsort ist es heute wohl besonders im Winter u.d. Ferienzeit gut besucht (Skigebiet in der Nähe, Thermalbad i.Ort), zu unserer Zeit dort ein sehr ruhiges, geradezu verlassenes Dorf mit dem Charme romantisch verwitterter Vergangenheit.

Die Lage ist hervorragend geeignet als Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen in die Berge und Ausflüge in Nachbartäler, reizvolle Orte & imposante Höhlen des "Couserans" und Pyrenäen Naturparks. Der Aufstieg zum grandiosen Wasserfall ist ein Muß und allemal die Anstrengung wert.

Die Wohnung selbst ist modern und geräumig, alles vorhanden, was man braucht und uurgemütlich. Jedes Zimmer mit extra Bad ist super für mehrere Leute. Der Pool ist schön, allerdings wars derzeit leider noch zu frisch.

W-LAN & alle Infos gibts im Office Tourisme ca 30m entfernt.

Im Restaurant gleich nebenan wird man von den sehr netten Wirtsleuten preiswert und historisch anmutendem Ambiente herzlichst verwöhnt, schön.

Die Vermieter Jill und Richard haben viel Arbeit und Liebe in ihr Haus, ein ehemaliges Hotel, investiert; sie sind äußerst nett, offen, umgänglich und hilfsbereit mit Infos und Tipps.

Ruhe, Gemütlichkeit, nette Menschen, Gastlichkeit und Natur, was will man mehr ! Wir waren leider nur kurz hier ... nächstes Mal auf alle Fälle länger !!!

Thank you for the nice stay !
