A real gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Maité's beautiful gite with our dog in late September. The photos here really don't do it justice.

The property is situated on one side of the valley overlooking the village of Arette and the mountains beyond. Maité has clearly put a lot of thought into the conversion of this old sheep barn; it's a good combination of rural charm (exposed beams and wonderful views) with the practical needs of her gite guests (a spacious and well-equipped kitchen, separate living room and huge utility area which is great for walking and dog gear.) The two balconies mean you can breakfast with the morning sun and enjoy your apéritif as the sun sets over the mountains.

Arette itself is a charming village with everything the visitor needs - a village shop with all the basics and fresh fruit and veg (there's a larger supermarket in the next village), post office and a couple of bar / restaurants. This is a really comfortable base for exploring this beautiful part of France. It's also incredibly good value.

Gîte très agréable, avec vue, au calme

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour en famille. Maïté est une hôte très attentive. Nous avons eu un petit souci et en 5 minutes, elle était au gîte pour essayer de le résoudre. Elle a même fait un aller-retour chez elle : en moins de 10 minutes, elle était de retour.

Nous étions avec nos 3 enfants avec en tête de faire du ski et cela a été assez facile. Nous étions en bas des pistes en une demi-heure.

Le gîte est très bien équipé, propre. Le fait que les lits soient faits en arrivant est un plus considérable quand on arrive en famille avec des petits et grands. Et c'est tellement plus accueillant.

La vue sur le village, le ciel et la montagne était un grand bonheur chaque matin. Si nous avons de nouveau la possibilité d'y revenir, cela sera avec un grand bonheur.

Vacances superbes !!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé nos vacances pour la troisième fois dans ce gîte magnifique. C'était toujours de superbes vacances. Nous venons

d' Allemagne et Arette est très loin de notre domicile (plus de 1400 km). Mais nous sommes sûrs de revenire.

Le gîte est très calme, très propre et très confortable. Cet endroit est ideale pour faire des balades et des randonnés, ou simplement pour se reposer dans la nature.

L'accueil de la proprietaire était toujours très sympathique, attentionné et chaleureux.

Mercie beaucoup et à bientôt!

In BARETOUS Valley, close to the valleys of ASPE and OSSAU.

At the door of the Basque country and Spain.

Close to 3 ski resorts: STONE ST MARTIN, (30 mins) GOURETTE and ARTOUSTE, plus ISSARBE. Opportunity to visit En La Verna the gulf of La Pierre St Martin. (Accessible to all) the little train Artouste BORCE the animal park with bears in the Pyrenees. And do not forget the beautiful walks in the mountains during the summer with sheep, cows and horses pacagent quietly and that will make your pleasure of watching them even if sometimes they force you to slow down on the roads of transhumance .. Do not forget also LOURDES, Saint jean pied de port in the Basque country. Finally, I highly recommend the restaurant Gouaillardeu Arette with delicious meal !!

Other Activities: mountain hiking

Skiing: We ski resort called La Pierre St Martin '30 minutes of Arette.

The skiing resort 'ISSARBE' part of the village also neighbors in about 30 minutes.

Also GOURETTE being a little bit further.
