location bien sous tous les rapports.

  • 5 of 5

Maison spacieuse pour les grandes familles aussi bien que pour un couple. Les animaux sont les bienvenus. Les enfants trouvent tout ce qu'il faut pour jouer à l'intérieur ou à l'extérieur (piscine l'été). Tout le confort est présent. La vue du balcon est splendide sur la montagne , été comme hiver. On trouve tout ce qu'il faut au bourg d'Arreau. On peut s'y rendre à pied facilement. Je reviendrai et conseille cette location.

Ce fut un vrai bonheur !

  • 5 of 5

Superbe location, très bien située et au calme, bien entretenue et avec tout l'équipement nécessaire pour passer un excellent séjour ! La vue depuis la terrasse est magnifique, en particulier lorsque la brume matinale se dissipe et laisse apparaître les montagnes !

Beaucoup de merveilles sont accessibles depuis ce très joli village d'Arreau : les cirques, les lacs, les grottes et gouffres, les superbes paysages vus depuis les cols, en bref c'est le paradis des randonneurs et en même temps un régal pour les yeux, mais aussi les papilles, parce que nous avons particulièrement apprécié la tourte pyrénéenne à la myrtille sauvage et le gâteau à la broche !

Évidemment, il est impossible de tout voir en une semaine, c'est pourquoi nous y reviendrons et ce sera sans hésitation dans cette location-là, que je ne peux que recommander vivement !!!

Très bon séjour à Arreau

  • 5 of 5

Séjour du 02 au 16/09/17. Nous étions 2 couples et avons apprécié cette location. C'est une maison familiale, qui est très bien, complète et tout est à disposition. Nous avons eu un temps agréable ce qui nous a permis de profiter de la terrasse, au moment du déjeuner, et cette vue sur la montagne était magnifique.

Ce qui manque, peut être à l'étage, est un placard pour le rangement, et l'abattant WC est à changer.

Arreau est un beau village à découvrir ainsi que les alentours. Les commerces, le marché du jeudi sont à proximité et se font à pied. C'est une belle région idéale pour les cyclistes, les randonneurs, et visites. Je proposerais, sans hésitation , cette location aux amis et la famille. Peut être à une autre fois.

Très belle location

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes venus à Arreau à l'occasion de vacances en famille.

Mon appréciation va être vite faite : cette maison est parfaite !

On voit que les propriétaires ont envie que leurs locataires se sentent bien, cette maison possède tout ce qu'il faut. Je n'ai jamais vu une maison aussi bien équipée, que ce soit pour les grands ou les petits, il y a tout et pour tout le monde. Et elle a beaucoup de charme, ce qui ne gâche rien. Les pièces sont bien disposées et toutes très fonctionnelles.

Je recommande chaudement ce logement que nous avons beaucoup apprécié.

S'il faut trouver un seul minuscule bémol, la hotte ne fonctionnait pas, ce qui n'est pas bien grave, et il ne faut pas avoir peur des lézards qui adorent s'inviter dans la maison. Mais à part ces petits détails, tout était parfait. Le village est lui aussi superbe, avec un marché le jeudi riche en saveurs. Le paysage est à couper le souffle.

Merci aux propriétaires de la maison d'avoir rendu notre séjour si beau.

Et à bientôt !

Nous avons aussi une grande attention pour le confort des enfants pour qu'ils passent de bonnes vacances chez nous ainsi que leurs parents. La région est également très riche pour des ballades et autres activités proposées. A bientôt j'espère. Vous serez toujours les bienvenus.

Magnifique séjour !

  • 4 of 5

Nous étions 3 couples, 2 enfants et 2 chiens pour ce séjour. Nous avons apprécié tout particulièrement l'espace intérieur et extérieur de cette maison. Chacun y a trouvé sa place ! Les enfants étaient ravis par la piscine... Les adultes ont profité de la terrasse avec son store très pratique... et les chiens avaient leur espace tout clôturé. L' électroménager est de bonne qualité. Le seul bémol c'est le lit rétractable pas facile pour un couple il vaudrait mieux mettre un sommier ...La proximité des services de la ville est appréciable (marché, boulangerie...) tout en étant au calme de cette rue. La maison est super bien placée pour les nombreuses randonnées qu'offrent la région ! Nous recommandons cette location ! Nous y reviendront certainement ...
