“Just leave your worries behind!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

As a group of Aussie cyclists we spent a long time looking at the reviews of places to stay in and around Luchon and were delighted with our final choice. Villa Portillon did not let us down.

It is sometimes difficult to make a choice about where to stay, some properties look fantastic but are in the middle of nowhere, where as others look like they will fit the bill but fall short.

Villa Portillon however is neither. Situated in a lovely quiet location just a hundred or so metres from the main tree lined street of Luchon, our group of 30+ antiipodean cyclists were totally blown away with not only the warm and hospitable welcome that we received, but more importantly the help and support that we were given to make the most of our pilgrimage to the heart of the Tour de France in the Pyrenees.

Not only were we delighted with Cadel finishing in yellow, we were also blown away with the quality of service, the attention to detail and the genuine friendship provided by the great team of head chef Annette, and the font of all Col knowledge Mike.

It was not our first venture into Europe, but from the start until the end it was probably our best. Great location, superb service and to be truthful a genuine interest in us as a group.

5 star cuisine, 5 star service = just the best. Thank you for making our European vacation such a memorable one.

Room Tip: This is not a hotel, but if you have the choice their master bedroom Portillon is just the perfect p...

Annette and Mike provided an impeccable service to us (3 couples) over 2 nights. Character property renovated to a very high standard. Wonderful food. Stone's throw to the main street in Luchon. Good local knowledge. Cycle storage! Cannot see how it could have been better. Highly recommended.

Had a fantastic time staying at Villa Portillon. Beautiful house close to everything with lovely garden, great room with very comfortable bed and wonderful breakfast. Annette and Mike provided great hospitality and we really appreciated their local knowledge for activities and places to eat. This really helped to make our holiday more special. Definitely our first choice for a return visit to the Pyrenees and hope to be back soon! Thanks Annette and Mike!

This really is a gem. A beautiful property set in a stunning garden in the elegant spa town of Luchon. Whether you come for skiing, cycling, walking or are just passing through, Mike and Annette really look after you. They set you up for the day with a great breakfast and they are on hand to tell you the best restaurants, the best walks, the best sights.
I have been back three times and even when on a skiing trip they were full, I still met up for a beer or two! I will keep going back!

A fabulous location for cyclists, walkers and those looking to enjoy the Pyrenees.
A gorgeous house and only a 2 minute walk to the main street for cafes and the Bagneres Spa ( think healthy waters not posh facials)
We were wonderfully looked after. Fab food. Loved the comfy sofas. we will be back

A gorgeous house exquisitely furnished surrounded by beautiful gardens right in the centre of Luchon. Annette and Mike were there to welcome us when we arrived. They had storage and tools for our bikes. Mike was full of information about the best bike routes. Annette's meals were delicious and her jams were to die for!!. They had suggestions for restaurants and were happy to make reservations for us. We had a wonderful stay. Thank you Annette and Mike.
