Haute Vue Couledoux, Haute-garonne
Located in a hamlet of eight houses, this self-catered gîte is a tranquil getaway in a picturesque setting in the Pyrénées mountains. The house can sleep up to six people and has a well-equipped kitchen and a pretty living room with a log fire. The traditional interior creates a cosy atmosphere, while a raised decking area includes a Nordic bath.
You’ll need a car as shops are about 20 minutes away, as is the resort of Le Mourtis, which is excellent for novice and intermediate skiers. The owners live nearby and like to greet guests on their arrival. Prices from £198 for two people for two nights (minimum stay). airbnb.co.uk/rooms/2272795
