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.
