Pyrenees Mountain Cottages Winter snow and ski
from £68 /night help
Gite | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Set, as we are on the very edge of the ancient village of Les Angles in the high mountains of the Pyrenees. It is hard to believe that we only 400 mtrs from 55 kms of ski slopes and five minutes walk from the village centre. Our cottages overlook a private cobbled courtyard and BBQ area. But best of all they overlook the most stunning views in the area. Lac Matamale lays shimmering in frozen magnificence below and the towering mountains of the Cambre D'aze and Malazza stand majestically above the tiny hamlets of Planes,Eyne and St. Pierre del Forcats. Definitely a view not to missed and will stun and mesmerize you every time you return.
Skiing started here in Les Angles in 1964 and since then the village has developed in a superb multi winter sports area.Which includes skiing,snowboarding,snowshoeing,dog sledding and tobogganing.
Not only is winter covered but the summer season has been catered for with water-sports,high ropes course,archery, horse riding and golf.
But let's get back to the Winter. Les Angles is part of the large ski area of the Neige Catalan Region with seven ski stations and can be covered with one ski pass .For more information about the skiing and the village visit our local web site at the tourist office.
Les Angles is one of very few ski stations where you can ski right into the village centre.
Our superbly renovated barn with exposed granite walls and beams welcomes you with a complimentary bottle of wine and something locally yummy. The lounge/dining area leads out through French doors into a traditional, south facing courtyard with stunning views over the mountains .. The fully equipped kitchen is supplied with cooker, fridge,dishwasher, microwave , kettle, coffee machine and toaster.
The first floor has a comfortable double bedroom with those stunning views over the mountains, a second bedroom with full size bunks and leading from this room, a separate large curtained mezzanine bedroom with a further double and single bed. There is also a shower room & wc.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region
Les Angles is the premier mountain activity area of the eastern Pyrenees and also has one of the best weather records in France with over 300 recorded days of sun every year. Being surrounded by mountains rising to 3000m means that we have our own micro climate.
The Languadoc-Roussillon has traditionally been the meeting point of several cultures and this is today reflected in the Catalan culture.
This is also the area of the Cathars who settled in several of the mountain top castles which are now open to the public.
Les Angles is situated at 1650m in the eastern Pyrenees and is the premier ski station in the Neige Catalan ski domaine which has over 300kms of pistes. With a season that normally starts in November and ends in April this is an ideal family ski destination. As well as downhill skiing we have an extensive number of cross country tracks as well as some superb snow shoeing in the bacxk country. Your host is a qualified snow shoe guide and will be pleased to arrange a day out for you. For the more laidback, try dog sledding or relaxing in one of our local natural hot pools.
The area around Les Angles is also a summer mecca for outdoor activity lovers with rafting, canyonning, rock climbing, horse riding, archery, sailing and a superb ropes course through the trees. The mountain walking is some of the best in France with peaks rising to nearly 3000m. Your host is a qualified International Mountain leader (IML) and rock climbing instructor and would be delighted to arrange guided walking holidays for you.
Les Angles has a history going back 1000 years and in addition to it's more recent development, retains its feel as a traditional pyrenean mountain village but with a strong Catalan tradition.
