“friendly place for family in Gite”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

We stayed at the Gite a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers.
Period during winter time, French School holidays, quite busy for skiing.
Cal Barbe is made of 3 parts: the gite , where we stayed, B&bs (3 chambre d'hotes) nicely decorate, and the house of the owner.
The gite is composed of 3 floors: Basement with entrance, bathroom, toilet, and washing machine. 1st floor with dining room and fireplace, kitchen, with full appliance and dish washer, and one bedroom with a large bed.
3rd floor with 2 bedrooms of 2 small beds, and an open room where kids can entertain.
The advantage is the free wifi includes in the renting, and the owner is preparing the beds with the sheets before your arrival. The bed are very comfortable, and the bedding is good quality. warm in the winter and warm water in the bathroom for all.
Not much isolation for the noise between 2nd and 3rd floor.
Better to have everyone go to bed at same time.
There is a big supermarket called super U about 5 minutes by car.
And a renting shop for the ski, just a walking distance from Cal Barbe. We recommend that place for renting ski: good price for good quality of skis and good advice of the employees.
Better than Sport 2000 of Super U, which is close during lunch time, and a lot more expensive, even with the 20% reduction proposed by owner.
As entertainement, you can go to the Bains romains of Dorres , about 20 minutes.
Or the Bains au Plancton of Saint Thomas, about 40 minutes drive.
The owner of Cal Barbe is willing to sell the full place. could be good for a big family or for keeping as chambre d'hotes and gite.
Hopefully the new owner will keep that place for renting.
We enjoyed our stay and will probably plan to go on week-ends for hiking.

Reviewed 14 March 2009

Found this B&B/Gite when looking for an alternative to staying at mediocre hotels in Font Romeu area. Stayed for four days whilst skiing and walking in January and found it an excellent base for the local ski resorts. Cal Barbe family has three lovely traditional rooms - warm, wooden floors, well decorated, en suite. Excellent evening meals by hostess in large dining room and open fire in large reception/sitting area. Not yet visited in summer but lovely grounds and great views to the south.
Whilst staying there was also a large Spanish family staying and we enjoyed some pleasant and realxing evening meals together. Hosts speak French, Catalan, some Spanish and English.
Quirky medical instruments on display in the guest area. Also saw the large gite at far end of the farm accommodation. Again well appointed although only one bathroom. Looking forward to revisiting in due course. Worth considering if in the area. Busy usually in July and August. Worth also looking at Cal Barbe web-site.
