Landscapes, legends and nature all combine to form this genuine mountain village in the beating heart of the Haute-Pyrenees. From here the mountains extend as far as the eye can see in all directions, with Luz situated at an altitude of 711m in one of the most beautiful valleys.

I'm writing to let you know how much we appreciatedLa Petite Maison in Luz St Sauveur this week-end. The children loved their attic eyrie, and everyone commented on how beautifully and sensitively the house has been restored, furnished and decorated - a rare enough thing for a French rural gite! Home from home - we will certainly be back, Best Louise
We booked the house for 2 families over the Christmas period. The house was perfect and proved to be an ideal base for searching out the best snow. The house has been equipped using quality furniture including wonderfully comfortable beds and whilst spacious still managed to feel cosy and familiar. Snow was in short supply generally during our stay but we managed to find excellent skiing for all abilities at both Luz Ardiden and Gavarnie. The house is wonderfully positioned just a few minutes amble away from the town centre which gives a chance to enjoy the pretty backstreets of Luz Saint Sauveur. The house exceeded our expectations and we would not hesitate to stay there again.
The fact that this was our sixth holiday in La Petite Maison says it all. The house has suited us very well over the past few years, and is ideal for two or three families. The children love the huge attic bedroom and the house is plenty big enough for everyone to find somewhere to relax after a day on the slopes. We particularly love the big kitchen, which is well equipped, and the comfy beds with their good quality bed linen. Thank you for having us and we hope to visit again!
This is a great house and would highly recommend. Quality throughout with lovely log burner in lounge, proper kitchen chefs delight with range and all the equipment you could ever need ,plenty of room for everyone to sit comfotably around beautiful table. Extremely comfortable beds and quality linen. Great kids room in attic. The town of Luz St Saveur is beautiful with lots of bars and restaurants.
We run our own gite business and really appreciated the quality and attention to detail. Will be re booking for next year
The perfect location both property and town to experience a French holiday. The house set in a quiet square with no main through traffic yet numerous townsfolk walking the dog or collecting baguettes to practice your French with. The main centre of the town is only 5 mins walk with all the amenities you will want for day to day living and also all holiday pastimes you could possibly think of. The house is very spacious, clean, and is ideal for large groups as well as small due to the size of the communal areas such as 'log fired lounge' and well equipped kitchen. The surrounding area is simply stunning whatever your outdoor activity may be, mountains, valleys, rivers, or visiting historic sites. During our visit we ski, snow shoe, and summited a few low snow covered peaks. Additionally we had an evening at a small bowling alley in the town which proved to be good fun. There are numerous restaurants, bars and typical French shops and yet the 'villigy' atmosphere seems to have been maintained. During our week we used three different ski resorts which catered for all abilities and were set in some magnificent scenery. Would I return? yes most definitely!
We have spent a lovely week with all the family. We were staying 14 of us.The house is very cosy, large and confortable. It has a Very large lounge and kitchen. Located in the village centre, Very practical, we could walk to the therms (spa).We have been lucky to have enough Snow to ski in luz ardiden, only 15 minutes away too despite the mild températures!
We would certainly recommend the place and come back as well !
