“Simply outstanding hospitality”
Reviewed 23 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Our group of 9 (2 families) have just returned from a Half Term skiing holiday, staying at Chalet Tourmalet. Carolyn and Stefan provided a great double act and were fantastic hosts. Nothing was too much trouble: catering for fussy eaters, driving us up and down the mountain in all weathers, and occupying my poor wife who was confined to the chalet after injuring her knee.

The highlights:

Excellent, plentiful food. You will not go hungry or thirsty even if you are skiing or cycling.
Clean and comfortable accommodation.
Roaring wood fire and freshly cooked cake in the afternoon.
Stunning mountain views.
Delightful dog and cat.
Hot tub under the stars.
As much (or as little) help as you could ever need to get the best from your holiday.

We would all heartily recommend Chalet Tourmalet to anybody, in particular cycling and skiing parties.
I'm already planning to visit again on my bike this summer..

Thank you for your kind words Justin - it was a pleasure to host you all. Place seems very quiet without you and Dodge is decidedly glum! Looking forward to catching up in the summer.

Well I do not really know where to start. We were met by Stefan at Lourdes airport what, a way to start your holiday in a good old Land Rover built for the mountainous terrain.on arrival Carolyn and dodge (dog) met us. We were shown to our rooms amazing views of the nearby snow capped mountains. The room was so spacious and clean even robes for use when you used the hot tub. The cuisine which we were served was absolutely fabulous I could not pick a favourite meal. You would find it difficult to eat better in a top class restaurant. Well done Carolyn. The hospitality is second to none. Ski-Ing thanks to our hosts was made so easy
Ski fit, passes, lessons all made easier by their local knowledge. It was a wonderful week I was taught the game of uckers helped Stefan in his garage and brought in the logs for a lovely
Lounge fire
I cannot express the beautiful night sky,the quietness and the tranquility
We intend to return soon to this little secret gem

“Fantastic location, Great accomodation, helpful, friendly owners and wonderful food.”
Reviewed 23 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed at the chalet with some friends.
It was our first time in the Pyrenees and our first time skiing.
We didn't know what to expect but what we found was above and beyond our expectations.
Stefan and Carolyn, the owners were friendly helpful and very knowledgeable about the area and the ski resort.
They helped us find an instructor, buying our ski passes and hiring equipment. They made the whole experience so easy.
The accomodation was perfect, clean tidy and very comfortable, and the cooking....
just fantastic. A varied menu each night and cooked and presented beautifully.
We just can't wait to go again next year.
Thank you too you both for making our holiday one of the best.

“Stop looking!!! This is the one!!!”
Reviewed 20 January 2016 for a stay in July 2015

If you are staying in the Pyrenees this is the place to stay. Your hosts Carolyn and Stefan are the most welcoming couple and make you feel like you are at a home away from home. You will enjoy spectacular views from your bedroom, amazing home cooked meals. Cuddles from their loving pets. Carolyn and Stefan make you feel so welcomed and comfortable you will never want to leave!

“Very welcoming hosts, fantastic food”
Reviewed 8 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Visited with friends and family at the start of October, the chalet was beautiful and the surrounding area is very picturesque. Carolyn and Stef, the hosts, were very welcoming and the food was superb. An ideal place to stay for both cycling in summer and skiing in winter. Would definitely recommend.
