Overview

About the property

This chateau sleeps18 on 3 floors, or can be booked as individual apartments

Set in a tranquil setting, this beautiful, typically French Chateau has spectacular mountain views and is fully equipped for either Summer or Winter get-aways.

The house sleeps 18 in total if you are a larger party, over 3 floors, but can also be split into 3 separate apartments. The middle and bottom apartments can be joined via an internal interconnecting stairway which can be locked if not in use. Each apartment boasts its own private individual front access, fitted kitchens, bathroom, 1 double and 1 twin bedroom, and lounge with diner each seating 6 (or 10 in middle apt). Also included are a picnic set, rug, games compendium, and all linen and towels. Electricity and gas where appropriate are also included so the price you pay is the total cost of your stay.

However we can provide a chef if required who will come and prepare a home cooked meal for you after those long days on the slopes, walking or cycling, at an extra cost.

The town of Saint-Lary is full of French charm. If you fancy a night out the village restaurants vary from exquisite French delights such as cassulet, and snails to steaks, and pizza takeaway. However if you just want to come back and relax taking in the wonderful mountain views from the villa, you can BBQ on the terrace with a nice cold beer, or chardonnay!

The Spanish border is only 30 minutes drive away, so you will find some Spanish influences such as paella and tapas, as well as Italian and English cuisine. Nearby are various other towns and villages, all with their own charm and individuality.

Activities within walking distance or short car journey include cycling, white water rafting, climbing centre, outdoor pool, indoor spa, ice rink, and paragliding.

If skiing is your passion the cable car is only 5 minutes away to take you to an array of fantastic slopes for all ages and abilities.

Our wonderful village is also a direct route for the Tour de France! So cycling routes here are among some of the best in the world as are the views!

About Sandi Wintersgill

This beautifully appointed chateau is owned by 2 families from Somerset who fell in love with The French Pyrenees and in particular the quaint village of Saint Lary Soulan and all it had to offer all year round. We have had endless holidays and have all learned to ski here and are now proficient skiers. In the Spring and Summer we have enjoyed picnicing and swimming in the breathtaking lakes and climbing in the high rope centre just outside the village and nail biting white water rafting! But of Course the cycling routes are second to none with the Tour de France often passing through!

Sandi Wintersgill purchased this villa in 2005

The ski lifts and cable cars go directly to the mountains. Skiing at St Lary is divided into three distinct areas, Saint-Lary 1700, 1900 and 2400. These areas interconnect and are linked by a variety of ski lifts. Navigation from one to the other is easy. Saint-Lary is a dynamic winter sports destination and the skiing is tremendous. The domain has been excellently planned to suit the needs of skiers of different abilities. In the Summer you will often find the Tour de France passing through! So its perfect terrain for keen cyclists. There are the wonderful lakes a short drive away and there are two swimming pools and a spa, or you can walk or hike from your door and enjoy the beautiful countryside. You can also picnic, golf, snowboard, sledge, ice skate, hang glide, skidoo, visit water parks and horse ride
