Bareges, Hautes-Pyrenees, Occitanie
Nestled in the small and unspoilt picturesque village of Barèges is Harrsica: a spacious four bedroom self-catering apartment that comfortably accommodates 8 guests.

Lovely spacious and modern apartment. Very well equipped, light and airy, minutes away from the ski resort. Waking distance to shops and amenities and two steps from the free bus shuttle to ski.

As a group of 8 we could not have found a better apartment for our week-long stay in Bareges. Extremely well-equipped for such a large number. Ideally placed for the ski bus up to the slopes at Tourmalet. If travelling by car and snow is expected please ensure that you have chains and a snow shovel as snow clearance of...

Management response:

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We have now made some changes to the ski locker to provide more boot room and have put up more hooks on the backs of the bathroom doors to hang things. We normally hang wet ski gear on the balcony, using the clothes horses but if it is cold and wet outside, hopefully the...
