“Spacious, warm and convenient for the slopes”
Reviewed 14 May 2012 for a stay in April 2012

My wife and I took our 2 children (6 and "almost 4") for their first taste of ski-ing this year with friends and had a great time staying here. The appartment is spacious, warm and convenient for the bus stop that runs you up to the the pistes "base camp" (about 5 mins ride and included in the lift pass fee). On a clear day you have a great view both left and right from the balcony of snowy mountain tops and, immediately in front, the sound of the river washing away the melted snow. We didn't come across anything that we felt was missing from the appartment in the week we were there, in fact on the contrary, there were plenty of nice-to-haves provided. Early April is late in the ski season and so the snow was receeding on the lower slopes (due largely to the heat wave they'd had locally for the preceeding 3 weeks!) and the town of Bareges wasn't the most lively, but with the children, that suited us fine. We easily sorted lessons for the kids in the morning (with English speaking instructors) and were able to ski until mid afternoon before things got a little slushy. Now we just need to keep the children patient until we can plan the next trip!

“Already planning a return visit in January 2013”
Reviewed 15 February 2012 for a stay in January 2012

Knowing Wendy and Stuart as we do, we knew that things would run smoothly and that the apartment would be very comfortable, cosy with lots of hot water for baths and showers after a hard day on the slopes... but there is so much more this location than the comforts of Harrisca.
Bareges/La Mongie is just one of numerous ski resorts within a 45min drive, the fact that Bareges was literally 5minutes up the road didn't deter us from also sampling the skiing in Luz Ardien, Cauterets and the relatively unknown gem called Gavarnie.
The snow was sparse, but we had 2 fantastic weeks skiing 4 excellent ski areas and for that reason alone want to go back - if it was fun with not much snow then it must be amazing with normal or good snow!!!
Having spent 8 winter seasons working around the 'best' Alpine resort like Courchevel 1850 and Val d'Isere I was slightly apprehensive to visit these smaller Pyrenean resorts but so glad we did. Courchevel in 2012 is no longer the Courchevel I knew and loved up until the millenium. However Bareges is a sleepy, friendly village and the villages/towns in the valleys were equally charming and a pleasure to wander around. Would I go back to the alps, yes, but no longer would they be my first choice. Would I go back to the pyrenees, oh yes - without a doubt, there was something more human, real and certainly friendlier in the pyrenees that made the skiing holiday as much a holiday/travel experience as the skiing itself. It was a more rounded experience with stunning scenery and something we look forward to enjoying again in the near future.
Thank you Wendy and Stuart, expect an email from me soon and I am even wondering about a summer break, the appeal of this area of the pyrenees is hard to resist.

“Skiing gem in the French Pyrenees”
Reviewed 3 November 2011 for a stay in March 2010
1
person found this review helpful

Last March I stayed here when it was just brand new and it was fabulous. The snow was great and we could ski back to the apartment – with the added bonus that we had spa visits included in our passes! The village was also great with restaurants, bars and a convenient bakery and even a butcher that roasted us the odd chicken for an evening in. As for the apartment, it was very comfortable and they don’t cram you in here. Plenty of space, great modern facilities, all brand new. Ski lockers provided and the ski bus is just over the road away with a short 3 minute ride to the lifts. Couldn’t be more ideal for families, groups, anyone really.... I’ll be going again next year on another boys’ week!
