    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    Surrounded by mountains - Volets Verts - is situated in the village of Ayros-Arbouix, close to the small town of Argeles-Gazost within the Parc National des Pyrenees. 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 Volets Verts, 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 (see www.argeles-gazost.com).

    Situated in the grounds of the resident English owner's property - they will be more than happy to point you in the right d...
