These superbly equipped, traditional cottages were newly renovated in January 2006 and are in the Pyrenees mountain village of Les Angles, regarded as one of the French Pyrenees premier ski locations yet by being situated just 30 mins from the Spanish border and 90 mins from the Mediterranean, it has a distinct Catalan flavour.
The apartments are in the old village of Les Angles, close to the centre and several activities and Lac de Matermale.
With its exposed granite walls and wooden beams, this cosy barn has been sympathetically renovated into two identical apartments, both of approx 55sq m. These are accessed from the courtyard by a French window into the lounge, kitchen dining area on the ground courtyard is ideal for al-fresco dining or just a glass of wine to watch the sunsets over the mountains. Bliss.
The kitchen is fully fitted with an oven with 4 hobs, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. We have also provided toasters and coffee makers and several other items not normally seen in French apartments. The lounge has two sofas but no sofa beds and for your entertainment we have satellite TV, video and DVD player.
On the first floor there is a double bedroom with stunning views over the mountains a second bedroom with 3ft wide bunks and leading from this room a mezzanine with two further single beds. A child's cot is available on request. There is a shower room with wc also on the first floor.
All of our prices include electricity, bedding, linen and towels and we also provide a starter pack of tea, coffee, sugar and milk as well as a bottle of local red wine.
The apartments are in the old village of Les Angles just a few minutes walk to the ski lifts, nursery slopes, creche, shops and a good selection of local restaurants.
Situated at 1650m in a beautiful Alpine valley, surrounded by peaks reaching nearly 3000m, yet having one of the best sunshine records with over 300 days of sun each year, this is the perfect family holiday destination with lots of activities to keep the kids, as well as mum and dad, fully occupied.
For winter sports enthusiasts Les Angles is the premier ski station making up the Neige Catalan ski domaine with over 320km of marked pistes. Our pistes are wide and superbly maintained as they meander through the Scots pine forest. Les Angles is a great mixed ability resort with runs for all levels. Better skiers can have a great time skiing the off piste and tree runs.
Guided walking and Snow Shoeing can be arranged with your host who is a qualified International Mountain Leader. As well as walking, climbing and skiing, there is a watersports centre at nearby Lac Matermale service by a free shuttle bus in summer, with sailing, canoeing and pedalos, archery, horse riding for adults and kids, mountain biking on well marked and graded trails, golf driving range (there are 3 golf courses within 30mins) and an adventure ropes course through the trees. And if that sounds all too much, just sit at the lakeside cafe/restaurant and soak up the sun. Mike, one of your hosts, is a qualified mountain leader and rock climbing instructor and can tailor a holiday to your specific needs.
A little further afield you can try rafting, canyoning and via ferata and afterwards relax in a natural thermal hot spa.
Although this region is still not well known to the UK market, the introduction of cheap flights to the nearby airports of Perpignan, Carcassonne, Toulouse, Girona and Barcelona means that getting here is both quick and affordable, and all these airports offer good value car hire. Driving is also simple with good quality roads all the way from the Channel ports.
