Description from owner


Happy Pyrenees - surrounded by mountains - is situated minutes from the town of Argeles-Gazost within the Parc National des Pyrenees in the village of Ayros-Arbouix. There is plenty to do if you like the outdoors; skiing, walking, cycling, paragliding, climbing, canyoning, rafting, canoeing, golf, tennis, horseriding. There are also many local places of interest, including the pilgrimage site in Lourdes. It is just a 10 minute drive to the grotto from Happy Pyrenees, where you can stay peacefully away from the hustle and bustle of the town. Or if you prefer why not spend some time relaxing at the newly renovated Thermes in Argeles-Gazost.

Situated in the grounds of the resident English owner's property - they will be more than happy to point you in the right direction with their local knowledge. The accommodation sleeps 4-6 people, has an open plan ground floor, including a fully equipped kitchenette, sitting / dining area with a separate laundry room. The first floor has two good sized bedrooms. Bedroom one has a double bed and an en suite shower and wc. Bedroom two has two single beds but can accommodate a third and is served by a separate shower room and wc. All rooms are heated by electric radiators.

We cannot accept animals as we have a dog of our own.

Very Good

“Very comfortable stay in a convenient and scenic location”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2012

We stayed at the Volets Verts while on a cycling holiday in France and were very happy with our choice of accommodation. Despite my reservations about sending money internationally before I see a property this process turned out to be quite simple and I had nothing to worry about, the accommodation was as advertised and very well kept. On our arrival Tracey and Tim met us and were extremely hospitable and helpful answering questions about the local area and providing thorough information on nearby services and food. They included local tourism information collected from various businesses but also had excellent local knowledge. Tim was particularly helpful answering questions about the various mountain peaks in the area which is what we needed. The property had a large living area (incl. full kitchen & separate laundry) on the ground level and a second level with 2 well sized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one ensuite). Everything was well looked after, clean and tidy with a nice balance of new (e.g. kitchen) and homely (e.g. bedrooms). The location is quite close to some famous and spectacular cycling peaks such as the Hautacam (it's actually on the road where this climb begins), the Col du Tourmalet, the Col du Soulor & Col D'Aubisque and many others. The nearby town is within walking distance (10mins?) and is worth exploring, but I'd also recommend looking at the surrounding towns which are all unique. Tracey and TIm were very obliging with any questions we had and were genuinely lovely. I would certainly recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting something simple at a good price in a spectacular area of the world.

Cannot fault the property, it's location or the owners! Argolese Gazost was a great place to be based for walking, mountain biking and road cycling in the Pyrenees. The gite was a good size for a family of 4 and was very well equiped. The owners were helpful without being obtrusive.Would definitely return.

“A fantastic base for cycling and walking”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2012

At the foot of the Hautcam an ideal spot for a riding or walking holiday. Landlords on site and very helpful.

“Location, location, location!”

Reviewed 19 Dec 2011

This comfortable and functional rental is ideally located for access to hiking trails and cycling routes. Despite the adjacent road, it was quiet with a pleasant ambience inside and out, including distant views. We were able to cycle from here without going through any busy towns or major roads. Many of the famous cols are within easy reach without having to do more than a 50 mile round trip; Hautacam, Col de Soulor, Col d'Aubisque, Luz Ardiden, Tourmalet, and Pont d'Espagne as well as many other delightful cycle routes especially up towards Lourdes. There's at least one good restaurant within walking distance, and numerous others a short drive or cycle away. The wifi signal was very poor, and needs a booster or perhaps just not to be advertised as otherwise some may be disappointed. We would have liked a dishwasher, but it wasn't the end of the world! The weather was warm and rather cloudy at times, and we had a bit of rain, but my friend in Pau tells me it wasn't a typical summer!

“Almost Heaven”

Reviewed 27 Nov 2011

Everything was great about the house-nicely stocked kitchen for cooking and house was very clean! Great location for cyclists as well as hikers. Also, great base for taking day trips to other areas of interest. My only negative is no cable television and wi-fi was very spotty-had to go outside to access internet. Owners on premises were very accommodating and eager to help with reservations, sightseeing, etc.

“Cosy, neat, spacious cottage”

Reviewed 12 Nov 2011

We had a very warm welcome. The owners were always prepared to give tips and advice. The property was situated in a quiet area. It is a very clean house with enough privacy. Very good eating facilities in the neighbourhood (500 metres). The only thing we missed a bit was a dish washer and the few channels on the television.

“Stay Here!”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2011

I would stay here again in a heartbeat. The guest house was in excellent shape and very well kept and clean. The owners were great people. They were friendly and helpful in finding places to go and just to chat with if you felt like it when you ran into them. The location is a little way from town but, I liked feeling being away from everything and as a cyclist the place is located on a great road for getting to a whole bunch of great rides without having to mix it up with traffic from the towns. It was also just a few minute drive to the store and a few more minutes to downtown argeles. The only thing that I think could have been better was the wifi signal was weak enough to where I sometimes had to go outside to use it. Which was fine most of the time except the rainy afternoons. :) I loved it there. It was hard to leave.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your great review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again. You'll be pleased to hear we've fixed the wifi problem, so you don't have to sit under the trees now!
