    During the winter months you can warm up your evening infront of your own traditional open fire.
    A garden in front of the terrace, will ensure those who...

We booked Terrafirma as a location for a large group undertaking some of the major Pyrenean cycling routes of the Tour de France. Coveniently situated about 3km from the centre of Argelès-Gazost, a little way along the Col du Soulor, the house offers great value accomodation for either two families or close friends who do not mind sharing facilities. The house is stocked with everything you need (including an excellent fridge for lots of beer!), wi-fi and plenty of linen. The owner, Jo, was incredibly helpful and friendly. more
