“Perfect place for a Pyrennean cycling holiday”
Reviewed 25 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Volets verts was everything we wished for and more. We were warmly welcomed by Tracey and Tim who showed us round then discretely left us to ourselves, whilst always being there if we needed any help. The gite is really comfortable and well kitted out with everything you could need including wifi, laundry room and secure bike storage. It is surrounded by the most beautiful mountain scenery and yet only a 30 minute walk from the centre of Argeles Gazost and a 5 minute drive to the local supermarket. The cycling was fabulous and we were blessed with fantastic weather for most of the week. Unfortunately we didn't get to ride all the different mountains and routes in one week so hope to go back sometime!

“Superb accommodation”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Volets Verts is superb: spotlessly clean, very comfortably furnished, filled with mountain light, endless hot water in the showers, fluffy towels, fully and thoughtfully equipped kitchen, laundry room, good supply of holiday-type novels to read and, to top it off, a superb location. The views of the Pyrenees from both the front and back are magnificent. But best of all are the hosts. Tracey and Tim are quite delightful and made me feel very welcome from the moment of my arrival. They were more than willing to provide local knowledge and whatever help was required. When Air France lost both my luggage and my bike box, Tracey made telephone calls (in French) to the airline on my behalf. The "welcome basket" of cookies, coffee and wine was very welcome at this point. And as a base for cycling, Volets Verts is perfect. The hosts provide a clean, dry shed for bike box and bicycle storage, and there's a bicycle repair stand and track pump for guests to use. The gîte is located at the base of Hautacam (in fact, you have to ride about 500 metres downhill to the start). It's a short drive (or a wonderful bike ride) to Luz Saint Sauveur for the start of Col du Tourmalet (magnificent) or, in the opposite direction, a short drive to Argeles-Gazost for the start of the ride up Col du Solour (tougher than it looks) and then Col D'Aubisque (simply beautiful). Thank you Tracey and Tim for your many contributions to a superb holiday.

“The best!!”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We were wonderfully surprised by the comfort of the house, the fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms, each with a full bathroom. It could not have been better. We wanted to climb some mountains, and Volets Verts was perfectly situated. At the foot of Hautacam, close to Tourmalet and the Aubisque. Coming from far on Saturday, Tracy had provided us with the necessary things for breakfast the next morning. How thoughtful! Thank you so much! We could not recommend better accommodations for anyone who would like to enjoy this gorgeous region. It is a place to come back to!

“A dream location for cyclists.”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We were greeted after a long drive from Paris by Tim and Tracey. A real home from home gite, with all the comforts needed, but with superb views. Their gite is at the foot of the Hautacam which our teenager rode throughout the week, continually beating his time. The other spent his week chasing lizards with Eddie, Tracey’s dog.

Argeles-Gazost is a lovely town with a weekly market and plenty of places to sit and watch the world go by.

The Tourmalet is only 30 minutes away, another famous route used on the Tour De France. Luz Ardiden is also located nearby with stunning views across the valley.

An ideal location to enjoy various outdoor activities, or just relax and watch everyone else participate!

We will be returning as a week was not enough to see everything in this wonderful part of France.

“Great base in the Pyranees”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Very comfortable and well equipped 2 bedroom gite central to many of the best bike rides in the Pyranees. Great walking, fishing and sightseeing options also. Tracey and Tim are delightful and eager to help. Will definitely be back and will recommend this place to friends and fellow travellers.
