About the property

The ´Soula´ barn

This refurbished barn is located on the GR10 route allowing easy access to the most beautiful Pyrenees hikes. Its name ´Le Soula´ means ´the sun´ and reveals the sunniest area of Mérens-les-Vals. Either one unit of the barn or its whole can be rented. ´Le Mérengois´ is a comfortable apartment for 6. ´Le Randonneur´ is for 14 people. It has a rustic character and is the departure place for hiking trails or skiing slopes. The last chalet is for 14 people. It is very welcoming and ideal for a holiday with your family or friends. Its layout allows people to either gather or have privacy.

The cosiest unit (´Le Mérengois´) was remodelled in 2011 and can welcome 6 people (two mezzanines and one retractable bed in the living-room).

The first bedroom has a double bed and the second one has two single beds.

With its fancy decoration, this 70sqm apartment also has an overview of the Ax Valley. The terrace offers an ideal setting where you can relax and have a drink before dinner while enjoying the view over the Pyrenees.

This is probably the best place to admire the Ax Valley. Less than a 30 minute drive from Andorra, you will benefit the European quality products for a lower price. The city of Ax and the thermal baths known all over Europe are to be enjoyed just 7km away as well as the ski resort ´Les 3 Domaines´.

A private parking space is at your disposal.

Stunning location and building but needs another toilet for advertised numbers

  • 3 of 5

Situated high above the valley with stunning views. Stone built mainly open plan. Plenty of seating for meals, 3 large tables. Kitchen facilities were good too.

We were a group of 8 cyclists over for the tour. The ones who had double beds were fine even though there was a mix up and they had single sheets. Two of the single beds were small but ok, the other two were put you up style and squeeked everytime the occupants moved, which was not brilliant being open plan.There was only one toilet which was a problem at times. The main shower was good and the second, was an over bath one that one needed to crouch in. TheTV was not working but the smaller Gite next door was made available to use the one in there.

It would be good accommodation but for less people.

There is a good restaurant just up the road but need to book in advance
