Location description from owner

The Midi-Pyrénées region

The Haute-Garonne department is one of the eight departments of the Midi-Pyrenees region in the south west of France and is home to both the bustling metropolis of Toulouse and a rural backdrop of undulating hills and valleys. It is a department of varied landscapes from lush plains to the soaring peaks of the Pyrenees and of history and great architecture including some of the towns classed amongst the most beautiful in France. Particularly sought after is the lovely spa town of Luchon with its attached ski resort.

In summer the Luchon valley is an accessible paradise for walkers, cyclists and climbers who come to enjoy the beautiful and unspoiled landscape. The walking and cycle route are also marked with hoof prints as the many stables in the region take guided horse rides up into the mountains for spectacular rides. In winter, the Pyrenees are blanketed in snow, and the walkers, bikers and climbers are replaced by skiers and walkers with raquettes (snow shoes) or families with sledges.

Bagneres-de-Luchon

Bagnères de Luchon is an ancient, elegant spa town and ski resort with grand houses and hotels testifying to its illustrious past when the who’s who of Europe descended to take the waters including Flaubert, Bismarck and Mata Hari. The spa was built in 1848 on the site of the old Roman baths. Today the waters are reputed to help rheumatism and ear, nose and throat problems. In spring, summer and autumn health seekers and holiday makers come to Luchon for the waters and mountains. In the winter it is the turn of the skiers and winter sports fans.

Known as “the Queen of the Pyrenees”, the centre of Luchon is a little slice of Paris. The busy, tree-lined, boulevard Allées d’Etigny, has rows of restaurants and street cafes, boulangèries and chocolateries with the accompanying enticing aromas of coffee, wine and food. The town is full of flowers, fountains and gardens and well equipped with shops; and you can buy pretty much anything you need in the town itself. Luchon also produces 30 million bottles per year of its own mineral water which has been classified since 1990 and is said to be particularly therapeutic and refreshing.

Luchon offers you the chance to enjoy a great days skiing at its ski station of Superbagnères, (accessed by cable car from the town centre or by car) followed by the ultimate indulgence of a relaxing spa treatment to ease those tired muscles. Other sports available in the area include paragliding, walking, golf, pony trekking and fishing. All surrounded by some of France's prettiest scenery and soaring snowy peaks making one of the most dramatic backdrops you could hope to find. Plus, of course, Spain is only 10 km down the road.

“Super place to stay - Secret hideaway”

Reviewed 2 Feb 2015

We stayed in this apartment which was 5 min walk from the tele cabin to the slopes very quiet location, in a beautiful setting. The baths were also a 5 min walk away and well worth a visit after a days snowboarding. The apartment was super, everything you could ask for there was three of us and there was plenty of room open log fire double french doors going out onto a balcony over looking the mountains. Well worth the money local to all shops and everything is included. The best place to stay for sure. This is a top secret super cool location. Great correspondence from the owners easy to use everything. Only thing i will say is whilst away on a working/snowboarding holiday it would have be beneficial to have WifI in the apartment.

“Lovely apartment”

Reviewed 6 Mar 2014

This was a lovely bright flat nicely decorated and comfortable.Nadiavwas very helpful. We had a very relaxed week.It was quiet but very close to the centre of the lovely town and the cable car to Superbagneres.

“First Class!”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2013

We stayed in Apartment 7, Villa Cecilia recently and cannot recommend it highly enough. The location of the apartment on a tree lined boulevard is perfect for a relaxed stay yet it is within a few minutes walk of the elegant centre of Luchon itself with it's myriad of shops, cafes, restaurants, boulangeries, cinema and of course the thermal baths and spa. The apartment itself has a smashing south facing balcony where we were able to sit and enjoy the spring sunshine and views of the nearby mountains. Apartment 7 is well equipped with everything you might need during your stay including additional items such as a supply of tea/coffee and soaps. There are some lovely little touches to the apartment such as art work and even a pair of vintage skis! Overall, we found the apartment extremely clean and comfortable and more than adequate for our needs. In addition, we found the owner Nadia, very helpful from the outset. Communication was prompt and nothing was too much trouble. We were so impressed we will be back for another stay in a couple of weeks time!

“Fabulous Stay.....Can't wait to return!”

Reviewed 14 Mar 2013

My wife and I had the good fortune to stay at this wonderful apartment, in its period villa, for a mini ski break. It’s in a great location, being just a short walk from the ski lifts, restaurants and bars, yet situated on a peaceful and tranquil avenue. The apartment itself is very elegant. It is spacious, light, tastefully decorated and extremely well furnished and equipped. Quite simply, it is without fault. The immediate ski area is perfect and would be ideal for families with small children, as the slopes were wide, beautifully groomed and sparsely populated. Wonderful! Our break was great fun and very good value for money. In short, it was perfect! We can’t wait to return! Highly recommended.
