About the property

Old barn with every comfort without forgetting the children

Find all the charm of the Pyrenees while having all the comforts, in fact apart internet lacks nothing in that barn.

It only has two large rooms but you can accommodate 8 easily.

One of the bedrooms and living room have stunning views of the mountains and are exposed to the south.

Although the land of 4000m2 are not flat (it is the mountain !!!)Three outdoor terraces (at the front door, on stilts and a gazebo) facing South and Southwest allow much enjoy the great outdoors. We also managed to install a gate to the delight of children.

The cottage is equipped for children dice early age (cot, small inflatable bath, high chair), there are also games for babies and children and finally many books for children and adults.

We go dice that he is not rented and we hope that you will feel as good as us.

Tolle Aussicht auf die Berge

  • 4 of 5

Ein kleines Häuschen mit super Aussicht von der Terasse.

Zu 8 würde ich dieses nicht empfehlen, Schlafmöglichkeiten waren zwar vorhanden, jedoch sehr beengt unsd nur ein Bad/WC. Ein Schlafzimmer direkt an der Strasse, dadurch leider sehr laut.

Ausstattung war gut. Sauberkeit geht so. Inneneinrichting sehr rustikal.

Bettwäsche/Handtücher war nicht inkl. (wie auf Seite angegeben), hätte 15 EUR pro Person gekostet.

WLAN/Lan (auf Seite angegeben) war nicht vorhanden.

Die beauftragte Dame zur Übergabe und Abnahme der Wohnung spricht leider nur französich.

Melles ist ein sehr hübsches Örtchen mit tollem Restaurant.

Für wandern und Gleitschirm fliegen ist die Gegegend perfekt.

Quel séjour magnifique!

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes venus à 8, 4 adultes 4 enfants (1 an 1/2, 3 ans, 9 ans et 12 ans).

Nous avons passé une semaine merveilleuse, chalet mêlant charme, authenticité, modernité, convivialité et fonctionnalité, grand soleil, paysage magnifique, accueil chaleureux...

Au programme, dépaysement, calme, détente, ballades, luge, apéro sur les terrasses, raclette, ... de vraies vacances !

Bref nous ne pourrons que recommander votre gite auprès de nos proches.

Le fait de pouvoir poser ses valises dans un gite parfaitement équipé, avec des livres et des jeux partout, des équipement de cuisine complets, des chambres charmantes et confortables.... est vraiment plus qu'appréciable.

Merci à vous et certainement à très bientôt.

Le Mourtis
Car: necessary

If you want to have the feeling of being alone in the world without being isolated, our cottage will suit you wonders. Indeed it is nestled in a green (when there are leaves on the trees !!) while at the entrance of the village of Melles (this is a cute Pyrenean valley that ends in cul de sac).

The valley is the last French as further south is the Val d'Aran (Spain at Vielha).

By car you are only 10 minutes from all amenities including many shops and restaurants (tapas and gourmet) Spain (we are only 2 minutes from the border), and all you need to St Beatus 9kms (doctors, pharmacy, shops, tennis, swimming pool ...).

Within walking distance you will have very nice restaurant Melles (2 turns above): "The Inn of Crabère" Camille and Nathalie offer delicious cuisine based on local products ...

If you are motorized and the return does not scare you, you can even come Melles while a spa treatment on Luchon, so you make the most of the mountain when you do not care.

Without the slopes very many different ski resorts are available to you: family Mourtis station is 20 minutes, the famous Luchon stations (Superbagnères) and Peyragudes is 35 min and the very famous resort Baqueira Spain is 40min. In winter the access road to the village (700m) is very well cleared of snow because we are located just before this one.

Finally in the summer while hiking you will feast in the same valley (crossed by the GR10), but also going to explore the Luchon (Lake O, L'Hospitalet, ...) or the Aran Valley Spanish side (the incantats , massive Maladetta ...).

For cycling enthusiasts, many very popular passes of the Tour de France are nearby (Menté neck, collar of Ars, gate of the pass, ...) and there is also plenty to do mountain biking. Finally, the white water sports (rafting, hydro, canyon ...) are very developed on the Garonne or other local mountain streams.

However if you want to spend more relaxing vacation, the framework also lends itself to our lookout terrace (dining table, chairs and barbecue) and our terrace on stilts (for outdoors lounge chairs for coffee and dining for two) with stunning mountain views. Also you can relax, after 1/2 hour drive you get to Luchon with its thermal baths.

You can also sample the local gastronomy since almost every day there is a market nearby.

As this year's Christmas and January 1st fall Sundays we offer for the Christmas vacation rental from Sunday to Sunday or Monday to Monday.
