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.

vacances géniales

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons passé de superbes vacances avec un calme complet. La location était très propre et très confortable. Que la nature et nous, c'était génial. L'acceuil qui nous est réservée à l'arrivée est très chaleureuse avec des gens charmants. Dans la semaine, la propriétaire, en venant nous demander si tout allait bien, est arrivée avec des framboises de son jardin. Si vous avez besoin de calme et de repos, voilà l'endroit idéal pour se détendre. Pas un bruit ne viens vous déranger ( à part le bruit des oiseaux ) De grandes balades dans la nature et la montagne en toile de fonds. Nous avons passé une semaine de repos complet même en ayant deux enfants de 11 et 16 ans. Les enfants eux même ont appréciés le calme et le repos. Pouvoir se trouver en haut d'une montagne, allongés sur un transat avec le soleil et le chant des oiseaux à bouquiner. Tout simplement génial.....

Wonderful property with magnificent views.

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay here. Arette is a delightful village conveniently located to the Pyrenees. The tourist office helped us with maps, advice and wifi.
Maité was a wonderful host - very helpful and lovely to deal with. The views from the barn are simply stunning in all directions. The barn itself is comfortable and had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Owner's Response: Quel dommage que je ne sache pas un mot d'anglais... Nos conversations ont toujours été réduites au minimum à cause de la langue ... que de richesse morale perdue ...
Je remercie mes vacanciers pour leur patience et serai ravie de les recevoir à nouveau si tel est leur désir. Mais depuis l'Australie ... !!

Les marseillais - Semaine de noël formidable

  • 5 of 5
Ce gïte, situé en hauteur, offre une vue magnifique, il est d'une propreté impeccable et décoré avec gout et beaucoup de soins, rien ne manque. Nous avons passé une semaine de noël très agréble, de belles ballades dans un décor de rève et pas loin de la station la Pierre Saint Martin très enneigée. Cerise sur le gâteau, Maïté est une personne extraordinaire, d'une gentillesse exceptionnelle, un sapin de noël décoré et une garbure toute chaude nous attendaient à notre arrivée. Tout est fait pour nous faire plaisir, même les lits étaient faits. Mille bravos Maïté, quel bonheur d'avoir fait votre connaissance !!! Encore merci, nous reviendrons c'est promis.

Excellente me parait très appropriée

  • 5 of 5
Accueillis très chaleureusement par notre hôte qui s'est déplacée à notre rencontre afin de ne pas chercher, ce qui n'est pas toujours le cas. Nous avons trouvé une maison à son image, accueillante, coquette, sympathique avec toutes les qualités requises et attendues pour passer un super séjour. Idéalement placée et fonctionnelle pour nos activités de randonnées (à pied ou à vélo), elle nous a permis de réaliser sans perte de temps toutes les sorties envisagées. Le temps a été de la partie : une semaine de beau temps. Ce fut une réussite. A renouveler, nous en sommes certains et recommanderons ce petit paradis à nos amis. Encore merci beaucoup Maïté et bravo !
