Chalet with stunning views in the beautiful Val d'Azun region, Hautes Pyrenees

Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Dec-2016
Detached, spacious, peacefully located with large garden. 3 bedrooms. 2 bathrooms.

The chalet stands above the village at an altitude of 800 metres. There is a large garden with patio area and ample parking. The ground floor is spacious with direct access to the patio and garden. Upstairs there is a galleried mezzanine landing, with seating area and small library. Popular with cyclists, the area is home to the most frequently used climbs in the history of the Tour de France, ie Cols D'Aubisque, Tourmalet, Hautacam and Luz Ardiden. The chalet is well placed for many activities - cycling, walking at all levels, water sports, paragliding, horse riding and bird watching. Unfortunately, our pool is not yet in use but there is a lovely open air pool nearby in Arrens (5 mins drive). So, if you are looking for a relaxing, get-away-from-it-all holiday or a challenging activity holiday, the Pyrenees has it all!

About the Owner

We are Ann and Don Brown and we live in Bristol.

We bought our chalet in the beautiful Pyrenees in 2006.

Every year we look forward to spending quality time at the chalet with family and friends.

Don is a keen cyclist and the chalet is surrounded by some of the most challenging climbs in France.

Our son, James, lives in London and is an experienced triathlete/Ironman. He trains in the Pyrenees several times a year.

The area is well served by airports and motorway links, which makes the chalet easily accessible.

Wonderful relaxing holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

Le Chalet is the perfect holiday cottage with a lovely family feel and superbly located for walking, cycling, exploring or relaxing. We booked it a while ago as a relaxing walking holiday break in the Pyrenees and it was absolutely perfect. It was very easy to find and Ann provided lots of helpful advice in the run up to our holiday. We will certainly highly recommend it as a perfect family cottage and we will definitely return for some more wonderful walking and hopefully cycling in the magnificent cols in the area. Thank you so much Ann and Don.

Excellent accomdation in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe I forgot to review this property better late than never!. I stayed here with my wife and two very young children in Summer 2013 (couldn't select correct dates for review as it was so long ago). Property was very spacious, modern, well equipped, and in a fantastic position. Lots to do in every direction and the scenery was just stunning. Would have no hesitation in recommending to others.

Lovely spacious chalet in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at this gite, one of the best we've stayed in. Lots of space inside and out, very comfortable, with everything you need for a relaxing holiday, right down to 3 to 2 pin plug converters! Friendly helpful owners who clearly love and look after this holiday home. Peaceful location in a picturesque hamlet. The Val d'Azun is stunning and there's lots to do for cyclists, walkers, families and anyone who loves the mountains. It's a special place.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Lourdes airport at 35 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Argeles Gazost at 8 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : St Malo ferry port (Caen ferry a further 100km) at 775 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Lourdes golf course at 20 Kilometres Nearest Train : Lourdes train station at 20 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A64 at 35 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Argeles Gazost at 8 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Biarritz for beach and great surfing at 175 Kilometres Car: necessary

The nearby pretty little town of Argeles Gazost has a selection of shops, bars, restaurants, banks, a post office and a supermarket. There is a Carrefour hypermarket on the outskirts of the town towards Hautacam. Every Tuesday morning there is a market in the town centre. The town also has a lovely park, zoo, thermal spa, swimming pool and casino.

The world famous pilgrimage town of Lourdes is 20km from Bun. It also has a castle, funicular, lake, golf course and markets.

Parc Chloro'fil is an acrobatic forest park. Thrills guaranteed in a beautiful, safe setting with zip lines and monkey bridges.

Base de Loisirs - Le Lac Vert is an outdoor supervised swimming pool complex with waterslides for children and adults, children's pool, fountains, paddleboats and canoes.

The Massif de Pibeste Nature Reserve enjoys a Mediterranean micro-climate, where vultures use the thermals to rise above the Lourdes valley.

Parapente at Couraduque and soar above the Val D'Azun on a tandem flight.

Visit the Aquensis Spa at Bagneres-de-Bigorre and have a revitalising treatment or just relax in the pools, hammam, sauna and roof top jacuzzi.

The Pic du Midi is a stunning feat of 19th century architecture. Take the cable car to 2,877 metres to visit the observatory and museum.

The Voie Vert cycleway is 17km of old tramway line between Lourdes and Pierfitte-Nestalas, transformed into a safe and scenic route for cyclists, rollerbladers and walkers.

The spa town of Cauterets can offer you good eating and a great starting point for stunning walks.

The not too strenuous hour and a half hike from Pont d'Espagne to Lac de Gaube rewards you with clear glacial lakes and a view of Vignemale in Spain. A great place for a picnic.

Whether driving, cycling or walking the region offers the most outstanding scenery from foothill villages to high mountain passes.

Keen cyclists can enjoy the challenge of some of the most frequently used climbs in the Tour de France, ie Cols Tourmalet, Hautacam, Aubisque and Luz Ardiden.
