About Sue Roberts

I manage an action sports retail chain and Sue is a teacher, we have three children. We have always enjoyed this area as it is a real get-away and offers a variety of experiences. We are a family who love skiing and trekking in mountains and unlike the Alps the Pyrenees is still very unspoilt. The purchase of the house has been an adventure and we love it when friends come to stay and we can introduce them to white water rafting or just hanging by the pool. We like entertaining and having good time with our friends so our aim was to make the house comfortable and easy to maintain. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Stuart and Sue.

                                                          We stayed here for a week with family and friends. Incredibly well equipped and beautiful location. We used the house as a base for skiing in the local resort La Mongie. Easy to find, easily accessible from the airport. All in all a wonderful house. We will definitely be back!

                                                          A superb property and facilities

                                                          dac C.

                                                          This is a beautiful property in a particularly lovely location with spectacular views of the Pyrenees from the terrace. The property is very well equipped and has fabulous facilities including a lovely outside space for dining and relaxing by the pool. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay the house and gardens being ideal for large groups and families. There are loads of places to explore and activities to try. The owners provide helpful information and advice about the local area. All in all we had a lovely stay and would definitely return next year.

                                                          lovely house in a stunning location

                                                          DollyUnited Kingdom

                                                          Have stayed at this property a few times now and we have never been disappointed! A fantastic base for large groups -peaceful location and fab facilities. The patio and pool are the perfect place to relax on a balmy summers day and in the evening al fresco eating on the well equipped terrace!Loads of funto be had both at the house and at other activities close by - white water rafting in the mountains, quad biking and a trip to the great beaches at Hossegor and Biarritz. Would recommended this house to any groups looking to have a fun but relaxing time in south west France!

                                                          A stunning house with beautiful gardens


                                                          I have just returned from a weeks holiday in this superb house. The spacious accommodation felt homely and was so well equipped for the 12 of us that it felt like staying at a friends! The stunning views of the Pyrenees and the fabulous pool never failed to impress and the games room was a welcome addition for our group which were made up of a range of ages. The location is peaceful and provides access to some amazing walks, but is near enough to towns and attractions that we could all find something to do.

                                                          I would highly recommend this house for a holiday and will definitely be returning.

                                                          Superbe villa avec belle vue

                                                          Nous étions deux couples, quatre enfants et deux chiens.

                                                          Tout était nickel.

                                                          Maison avec beaucoup de place. 5 chambres, don une pour les enfants avec quatre places, des lits pliables supplémentaires,... Bref, plus de place que ce qu'il nous en fallait!

                                                          Propriété avec beaucoup d'espace, toute clôturée et bien entretenue.

                                                          Petit bémol pour la piscine non chauffée, mais franchement raisonnable en bonne saison.

                                                          A recommander!!!
