Poles Apart is definitely just that – poles apart from many other apartments/gites that I have looked at. The owners have obviously put their hearts and souls into this superb apartment, which has been done with taste and to a very high standard. It is well supplied with everything one needs for a comfortable relaxing break.
Ax-les-Thermes has a lot to offer besides skiing – which was excellent at the end of March 17. Ax is a very pleasant little town with just enough buzz and within an easy stroll of the apartment.
Well recommended, and I’m sure I’ll be back.
Had four days skiing in Ax and needed something comfortable for myself and a friend. David was easy to talk to and made the booking process simple. As an Ax first timer it was important to be near the ski lift and Poles Apart is just a short walk away from the bubble. The apartment is elegant and modern, with two good double rooms, a lovely lounge, great kitchen and smart bathroom. We were allowed late entry due to flights and late departure to make the most of our skiing time. Parking is off the road and private so really useful for a town centre location.
Ax as a town is pretty and you must try the baths, while the ski area is extensive and pretty with many tree-lined slopes and easily accessible off-piste. Give the Pyrenees a go if you haven't before and if you choose Ax, be sure to book Poles Apart. Bon Voyage.
