“Excellent accommodation surrounded by marvellous mountain scenery”
Reviewed 8 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The apartment was very comfortable, well equipped and conveniently situated. We enjoyed mountain and gorge walks starting from the door, and made use of the local bus service to visit nearby places. Hazel and Dennis were very welcoming and helpful. Vernet les Bains is a delightful small town and an excellent centre for a holiday.
We are pleased to recommend this apartment, and would certainly have liked to stay longer.

“Petit and perfect”
Reviewed 25 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

If you want a very relaxed, get-away from it all holiday this is the place for you. Nos Vacances is an ideal base from which to explore this quiet, slightly off the beaten-track area of France. There are some fabulous walks directly from the apartment, up into the beautiful pyrennees, to stunning waterfalls above Vernet and to St Martin du Canigou. Perpignan and the coast are easily reached in approx 50 minutes by car. We flew into Perpignan and picked up a hire car at the airport and were amazed at how easy it was to reach Vernet from there, its a stunning and very easy 50-minute drive (the roads were not quite as hair raising as we had expected, so not a scary drive).

The property itself is just as lovely as it seems on the web, it is very well equipped and we enjoyed a few cosy nights in with a DVD, as well as a few easy strolls into Vernet in the evening on other nights to one or two of the local restaurants. In June Vernet was very quiet but it does have everything you would need (pharmacy, swimming pool, tourist info and a few shops etc). The local supermarket is easily reached if you do want to cook, and a boulangerie is just a few minutes walk away for fresh bread in the morning. There is a limited choice of restaurants open outside the main summer season, but enough of a choice for a weeks' stay. If you want a buzzing nightlife this is not the place to come, but for total relaxation its fabulous. It's not the ideal place for families as it is too small, or for anyone who needs easy access as the apartment is up a few steep stairs, but for couples its perfect.

Hazel is really welcoming and thoughtfully left a few basics for breakfast, which was great after a late arrival. There are also lots of maps and ideas for place to visit so although this is in a quiet relaxing area you won't be short of things to do. We'd love to go back and I'm sure we will.

“A wonderful, relaxing, tranquil week.”
Reviewed 18 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Needed a break from the every day and couldn't have found a better spot. Hazel and Dennis, the owners, are very welcoming and have an excellent knowledge of both the local area and further afield. They also speak French which can be useful! The apartment is perfect for two people with a very comfortable bed, sparkling clean bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen. It's lovely and private, with a terrace that catches the afternoon sun which is perfect for that pre dinner drink. Vernet les Bains has everything you need from the bakers to the swimming pool and the walking in the area is wonderful. And if you want to go further afield, it's less than an hour to either the mountains or the beach. We really didn't want to come home and are sure we will return again and again.

“Great people, beautiful place”
Reviewed 13 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at Nos Vacances. The apartment is situated at the side of Hazel & Dennis' home so there is plenty of privacy when you want it. Dennis and Hazel are always about to answer any questions or deliver some freshly picked tomatoes/figs/chilis :) they are very welcoming and have a good knowledge of the local area. The garden is beautiful, anyone with an interst in gardening or nature will be in heaven. The apartment is nestled right on the side of the mountain by the river and is only a few minutes walk from the centre of the village.

“Wonderful accommodation in idyllic setting”
Reviewed 24 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We spent a wonderful fortnight in this idyllic part of France with our gracious hosts Hazel and Dennis Pitt who were very welcoming and knowledgable about the area. The apartment situated a short walk into the Village, is very well appointed offering us everything we needed for a successful stay - a good working kitchen, very comfortable bed and dining and sitting areas. The tranquil outdoor setting with views to the mountains added an extra dimension to the relaxation and many an hour was spent with a glass of wine and a book on the comfortable outdoor lounges. We would recommend this apt to anyone visiting the area.
