Sejour chez Hirondelles

  • 5 of 5
Warm and very generous welcome by owners.
Gorgeous family house, spotlessly clean, luxurious bath rooms ,and beds so comfortable one is tempted by early nights: but the spacious cinema beckons as does the inhouse "massage parlour " :
The separate, fully equiped apartment was ideal for those with young families., with its own magnificent views.and balconies.
The house was equiped with every available electric appliance on the market including some that were not .. Japanese WCs !
The heated swimming pool with children area, magnificent views and secure balcony was difficult to leave.
However beautiful walks near and around the village ,followed by a simple restaurant meal and a cool beer was hard to resist.

A bakers van has fresh bread and criossants in time for breakfast.
The service was excellent , as a knowlegable
neighbour was always available for both emergencies and
tourist ideas, Indeed he organises family walks or sking with mini bus transport

For us the most important aspect was the peacefulness,
the delightful views coupled with the spaciosness and confort of this massive demeure.

Love the mountains, love the house!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed for a New Year's getaway. Truly impressed by the grandeur of the property, with rooms decorated to a very high standard and styled throughout. Lots of thought given to facilities from massage chairs to an outside jacuzzi. Nice touches for the winter included a lovely log fire and toilets with heated seats! The cinema room proved a great place to end the day watching a movie.

What really stood out for us is the setting - the house looks on to scenic snow-capped mountains. Sitting out on the terrace (it was just about warm enough when the sun shined) the backdrop is idyllic. There were plenty of walking opportunities for us in the nearby villages and skiing was a short drive away.

The owners are extremely hospitable and we felt recharged, ready to face the New Year!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the house & visiting the surrounding areas. The descriptions of the house & amenities are accurate. We spent a lot of time at the house itself but did venture out to do some kayaking in Argeles & then some canyonning too.

Only problem we encountered was with the jacuzzi which we used once (it was too cold) but it hinder the enjoyment of the place.

As we were several families travelling together (with children age range from 5-14) the home cinema was a great addition which meant that the adults could have a peaceful dinner downstairs.

All in all I would recommend this property.

Owner's Response: It is great when you hear the enjoyment that a young family had from our house. They want to return in 2010 and we are looking forward to welcoming them; they want to perfect their petanque skills apparently!
