We joined friends, who were skiing in the resort, for a new year's break. We were made to feel really welcome by Clare and her amazing team. Fantastic customer service, great atmosphere, warm and friendly. Lovely log fire to sit beside after being out in the mountains, and a good selection of games and paperbacks. Great to have free wifi... More

I stayed here while holidaying in the south of France and was more than pleased with the whole experience. I stayed in a dorm room, which was perfect and very reasonably priced. The breakfast spread is more than adequate with flexible times for anyone setting off slightly earlier or sleeping in, on request. Dinner was phenomenal ! Beautiful food and... More

Having driven to Saint-Lary-Soulan in the summer on a touring holiday, I did a bit of research on places to stay when skiing. I loathe having to walk any distance to the lifts, and worse still, having to queue. Chalet Lou Rider is a stone's throw from the ski shop and lifts. No walking, no queuing – and I enjoyed... More

I stayed here with my 2 sons aged 11 and 5, we had such a brilliant time, the staff are fabulous, the atmosphere is laid back, warm and friendly. There are games for the children and adults to play, the staff join in and play too. The log fire in the lounge / restaurant area is a welcome sight when... More

Positives: Great location, <100m to the lift. The chef Mark does great restaurant standard food. Claire & her team (Sam & Andy esp.) are very friendly, fun and accomodating - nothing is too much trouble. The only negative is that some of the accomodation is a little tight, and you may have to share a toilet. Great location for kids,... More

We had a great couple of nights with Clare and her team at Lou Rider last month; the atmosphere is relaxed and very friendly, the food was really good - both value and quality and quantity - and the situation is fantastic, right by the lifts at Espiaube. The room was basic but acceptable - one suggestion: brighter lighting would... More

Stayed here this month with husband and teenage son and would thoroughly recommend for all who are coming for a ski or walking holiday. Situation - couldn't be better sited for access to slopes (and I would imagine as starting point for mountain walks). Ambiance - very welcoming, log fire, big table for meeting new friends at mealtimes, well-stocked bar.... More

The area surrounding St. Lary Soulan during the summertime has so much going for it - paragliding, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, thermal baths or simply relaxing in the stunning surroundings. Chalet Lou Rider is comfortable and cosy with a friendly atmosphere and excellent food. Looking forward to coming back in the winter for the skiing!

This is an ideal get away from busy city life with everything you need to just relax and have a good time. It's situated in a beautiful location over looking mountains and trees and also right next to a ski resort, perfect for the winter months. My stay was in June so no skiing for me but plenty of other... More

This is an informal, comfortable chalet-style hotel where you are made to feel very welcome. A restaurant/bar area complete with open fire provides an excellent apres-ski space. The bedrooms are basic but adequate with ensuite facilities in most rooms (I believe - there was in ours). Breakfast is continental style but with added porridge! The evening meal is 3 courses,...
