A little difficult to find (particularly if you were arriving at nightime). But, once there, it was very good. Great location, very private, lots of sunshine. Big rooms. (creaky staircase, so no sneaky trips to the kitchen in the nightime !). Mountain views, walks, climbs, attractions nearby. Great private pool. Vernet les Bains has many attractions. Tempted to say "no"...

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay in Vernet les Bains and look forward to welcoming you back again.

About the neighbourhood
Vernet-les-Bains is an ideal centre for holiday-makers as it has so much to offer that you may not feel the need to leave the local area at all! The village enjoys a wonderful climate, as it is set in a sheltered valley, surrounded by mountains which trap warmer air, yet not over-shadowed by them so it is in the sun all day. Its altitude of 650m means the air stays a pleasant temperature, without the high heat and humidity that may be experienced in the coastal regions.<BR><BR>Vernet has its own thermal spa and fitness centre, offering aquagym, jacuzzis, sauna, steam room, massage and fitness room. Next door there is an imposing casino and its tranquil park. Vernet is also a Village-Arboretum, with over 1,500 trees in the village, of which some 200 species have been identified... more
