About Tristan Hay; Lisa Hay

We are Tristan and Lisa and we love the mountains. Skiing is our number one passion and after several years of looking and numerous ski and summer holidays we brought our dream chalet in 2007.

The area has all the mountain sports and a traditional feel that we have not found elsewhere. After several working holidays to get the Chalet just how we want it, we now use the Chalet to relax and for great mountain activities.

We visit the Chalet as many times of the year as possible and find it the perfect place to get away from it all and relax. It is also a great place for us to take our family and friends!

We hope you enjoy Chalet Hay as much as we do.

Tristan Hay; Lisa Hay purchased this chalet in 2007

What makes this chalet unique

Our favourite activities include, reading a book in the garden on sunny days, eating out on the terrace and in local restaurants with some delicious red wine. Taking a night stroll under a million stars (no light pollution here!), standing on top of the quatre therms ski lift with the Pic du midi in front and 4km of sweeping blue runs ahead.

A typical winter day for us would be a family breakfast around the large dining table, heading up the mountain for a cheeky hot chocolate before the children head to ski school with our favourite english-speaking instructor Muriel, delicious lunch in La Schuss, a fun afternoon skiing with the kids and maybe a a few of us adults would meet up and head over to Laquette for the long tree lined runs and an afternoon beer. After the pistes close meet friends and enjoy some drinks in one of the restaurants and then participate in an evening activity such as husky dogs (brilliant), a ride in a piste basher, sledging or some night skiing. Or maybe a trip to the huge luxurious spa with the jacuzzis on the roof! Fab, fun filled days with family and friends!

Bliss!!

Great for exploring the surrounding country in summer

  • 4 of 5

The property was accurately described and clean, and its setting was even prettier that the photos on the Internet. I would recommend this property to friends and family. Chloe was very kind and helpful when we had queries. I can recommend the Auberge Lou Fabeclo at Beaudéan and the Céperie in Arreau for good, authentic French cuisine. In general, we has lunch out and breakfast and dinner at home. The lake at Payolle is worth a visit and the road continues over a pass with spectacular scenery. The same can be said for the road though La Mongie to the Cirque de Gavernie. There are many bicyclists on the roads in this area - it's a popular route for the Tour de France. Since guests arrive on Saturday after 3 pm, you should be aware that the local supermarkets (Intermarché, Lidl and Carrefour) are open until 8 pm, but are closed on Sunday.

A great place to stay for skiing at La Mongie.

  • 5 of 5

All eight of us enjoyed a fantastic four night stay. It was lovely to "come home" to a log fire and such a comfortable, cosy well equipped chalet after enjoying a good days skiing. We will definitely be staying again.

Fantastic in summer!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this spacious, comfortable and very well-equipped house. The area has so much to offer in summer - gorgeous scenery - little towns - mountain walks - the chance to speak a bit of French - and no crowds. Our children loved it too. We would recommend Chalet Hay without hesitation!
