About Sandi Wintersgill

This beautifully appointed chalet 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 apartment in 1995
