Domaine de Bertre bestaat uit twee gites - Gîte Vue des Montagnes en Gite de Bertre. Beide profiteren van royale slaapkamers op de bovenverdieping en een ontspannen, open lay-out beneden. Elke kamer heeft een met houtkachel, Engels satelliet-tv en draadloos internet. Ze zijn zeer gezinsvriendelijk met een UV-behandeld zwembad (gedeeld met de andere gîte, OF de eigenaren) ingesloten naar Frans veiligheidsnormen, schommels en een grote, gesaldeerd trampoline. Kinderspeelgoed en boeken zijn aanwezig.
Lokale attracties zijn onder de middeleeuwse steden van Mirepoix en Carcassonne, een aantal van de grootste grotten van Europa, een aantal mooie, begeleid zwemmen meren, dierenparken waar u op verschillende manieren kunt zien arenden, wolven, bizons en reptielen - er is ook een safaripark in Toulouse.
In de omgeving kunt u deelnemen aan kajakken, kanoën, paard of pony rijden of een 'parcours dans les arbres' (zip draden, touwladders, etc) geschikt voor kinderen vanaf drie.
Wonderful Ariège... A house in the middle of nowhere or maybe in heaven!
Beautiful restauration of an old house...
Everything was perfect....
Just back from a perfect week at the Gite vue des Montagnes. Location was stunning, pool excellent, accommodation exactly as required plus extensive grounds for our 18 mth old grandson to explore safely and lots of ball games, books, trampoline etc to keep him occupied. Catherine and Alex were extremely helpful both before and during our stay and we would heartily recommend the gite for a relaxing stay. Thanks so much for making it such an unforgettable holiday.
We stayed at the Gite for a month with our two children (6 & 8) and really enjoyed our time. The setting is beautiful, awesome 360 degree views, with only the noise of cow bells and frogs to hear. We found the gite very lovingly restored, the beds were comfortable (lighter bedding or sheets would have been good as we found ourselves too warm towards the end of our stay when the weather heated up), and the shower was excellent. The kitchen is a bit on the small side (lacking bench space) and could use some TLC - the dishwasher racks had broken wheels, one of the gas jets didn't stay alight - and the kitchen lacked basic items like salad and mixing bowls. Other than this, the rest of the gite was very spacious and comfortable. The fire worked well when we needed to use it.
A note to future guests is that there are no basic pantry 'staples' provided (such as oil, salt, pepper, sugar) or cleaning and maintenance products, other than what appeared to be left over from previous guests. We had to purchase items that we would expect to find in a holiday rental like garbage bags, kitchen cleaning cloths, dishwashing tablets and firefighters.
Our children loved that there were some toys and English books, they enjoyed playing outside with the resident cat Pickle, building a cubby house with the owners' children, the trampoline, table tennis and of course the pool! We enjoyed soaking up the view, cycling through the rolling hills, relaxing by the pool and using the gite to explore the Ariege region.
The region has a lot to offer - walks, cycling, caves, mountains, Prehistoric attractions, ropes courses (acro branch), rivers as well as many small towns. There were plenty of tourist brochures in the gite which was a great help in planning trips.
A car is a must. We would highly recommend this property to friends.
We stayed in the Gite for four months in late winter and early spring and we had a wonderful experience. The house is located in a beautiful spot, amid rolling hills with perfect stunning views of the Pyrenees. It is very calm , there is not a single noise around , yet it's only 10-15 minutes on the backroads from all the amenities you would need. There are many things to do around( skiing, walking,nice small villages and churches) but we ended up most of the time in the garden with the view of the mountains. The house itself is perfectly maintained, spotlessly clean, fully equipped and decorated with style, using a combination of antique furniture and modern fittings. The owners live on the property, which was great for us , since they are extremely helpful and went of their way to make our stay pleasant ( they installed a protective rail around the wood burning stove for our one-year old baby, which we found very thoughtful). Overall this is a great vacation house in an exceptional location: We didn't really want to leave when our holidays were finished!
We stayed at the property for three months which is well appointed, with its own washing machine, comfortable and clean. Bed linen and towels provided. There was a fridge. electric cooker and hob. A wood burner in the sitting room supplied with wood by the owners added to the ambiance particularly during the spring months.The surrounding garden boasts spectacular panoramic views of the Pyrenees and in the evening the nightingales are an attraction. The gite is located close to the town of Pamier and the sites of the Midi-Pyrenees are easily reached via the nearby road system
The gite is set in an idyllic location on a southward aspect with stunning views across the Pyrenees. It is also well served by the town of Pamiers, which covered all necessities. The building has been beautifully restored and provides a picturesque setting to 'get away from it all.'
The open plan ground floor proved a good living space to enjoy time together as a family. There was a good selection of books, games and toys. Although we were slightly disappointed by the TV, which made viewing the good selection of DVD's in the evening frustrating as it's small and the sound piercingly tinny.
The kitchen had good facilities for cooking for four, and the dishwasher was a welcome bonus. Although at the cost of a washing machine, I'm not sure it was worth it.
All the bedrooms were of a good size, albeit a little spartan for our taste. The mattresses were comfortable but the presence of a footboard on the double beds meant that if you are over six foot tall, as one of us is, a good night sleep was somewhat elusive.
The bathroom was excellent whilst having two WCs, with one separate, made bathing was a relaxing experience with great views out up the valley. The shower was shower was excellent too.
The pool and garden facilities are superb here; an abundance of land for kids to play and roam, table tennis, trampoline, clean swimming pool, surpassed our expectations. Although in the heat of the day there was a gathering of thirsty wasps around the pool. However, once we informed the hosts, this was dealt with as best it could be.
Whilst evenings sitting in the alfresco dining area for meals, watching the sunset over the mountains will live long in the memory.
There is also excellent access to some of the worlds best cycling if that's your thing, as it ours. With Ax-les-thermes being a good trip on cooler days.
Alex and Catherine were both helpful during our stay, especially when the power 'tripped'. They also allowed us the added security of paying via the website, which was much appreciated.
Would I recommend to a friend? Yes, but with the caveats of, lack of washing machine and be under 6 foot. Also, there was no wifi available in the gîte, even after it apparently had been fixed.
