Guestbook comments from the owner

We found La Haille Gîtes to be very well equipped and clean, in a lovely setting with wonderful views and a peaceful environment. The swimming pool was excellent and the surrounding countryside offered beautiful walking and interesting towns. We enjoyed it so much we stayed for an extra week! It has been refreshing to stay in a place that is actually run professionally as a business and we have stayed in quite a few! The walks are very well numbered and marked with plenty to choose from making it a perfect hiking area. Thank you again for making us so welcome.

My wife and I had a wonderful weeks stay at La Haille Gîtes in August. We loved the beautiful countryside with distant views of the Pyrénées, even from the pool. The owners had lots of time for their guests and took me out on the marked cycle trails. There was a games room, rope swing and tree house for young children at the gite and hire bikes were also available. The accommodation was clean, well equipped and informative.
