Reviewed 23 May 2018

This cottage is located in a small hamlet of complete tranquility. The scenery is breathtaking, and other than the lowing of cattle, the gentle ringing of the goat-bells and the occasional bark of a dog, the only sound is of the stream that runs through...More

About the neighbourhood
The area is popular with hikers, skiers and cyclists and has many cycle trails, ski resorts and footpaths to suit all abilities. The village is often on the Tour de France route and in 2017 was virtually circled by the popular race! Col des Ares is a short drive/cycle away and for the more adventurous hikers the Cagire mountain route starts in the neighbouring village. Le Mourtis ski resort is 30mins up the mountain and Luchon, St Lary, Piau Engaly, Peyregaudes (France) and Baqueira (Spain) ski resorts are also within easy reach. The property is close to the Spanish border and so guests can enjoy Paella by the river in Bossost and Viella whist also stocking up on cheaper fuel and alcohol.
Getting around
The property is in the rural village of Arguenos and so a car will be necessary. Freshly baked croissants and baguettes can be purchased in the neighbouring village Juzet d'lzaut (6 mins away) where there is also a boucherie. For a larger shop guests will want to drive into the market town of Aspet (13mins) where there is a well stocked Carrefour market as well as many other stores, a pharmacy, doctors surgery, restaurants, bars and craft shops. Aspet market is held on Wednesday and Saturday mornings and is well worth a visit. Large out of town stores such as L'eclerc and Lidl can be found in St Gaudens (30mins).
