Maison Agnes is a family owned business which operates in the French Ski resort of Les Angles, catering for both Winter & Summer activities plus a whole range of extra leisure activities available for families, couples or groups of friends.​ After retirement and needing a project, Mike & Jenny Rhodes decided to renovate an old property and barn in Les Angles.. Mike used his 50 years walking and climbing experience and gained qualifications as an International Mountain Leader and rock climbing instructor to be able to take out clients into the mountains.

Our accommodation is nestled on the edge of the mountain village of Les Angles high in the mountains of the Pyrenees. The views are spectacular from the lounge, bedrooms, courtyard terraces and gardens. The mountains and lake can be seen with ease from the garden which has been arranged for families to have their own area to eat, relax and just while away the hours. The accommodation is in an old stone built barn (circa 18th century) and has been tastefully renovated into two lovely gites. Side by side. French windows open out onto your own part of courtyard set with table and chairs for eating outside with 2 gas and 1 brick built BBQ's to choose from.​

Maison Agnes Features:
Enter through the French windows into a comfortable sitting room with wooden beams and stone walling. There are two settees with a coffee table, side lamps on side tables, a TV (with English free view) with a DVD player and an assortment of DVD's. To the rear of the room is a dining area and kitchen containing a fridge, dishwasher and oven/hob plus a microwave. All the comforts of a home kitchen!.

Leading from the lounge is a wooden staircase with stone walling, at the top is the shower room and double bedroom with stunning views of the mountains and lake. Opposite is another bedroom with full sized bunks, wardrobe, drawers and seating, overhead bed lights and side lamp.

From here there is another staircase to a private mezzanine floor with a king sized bed and single bed which is normally tucked to the side. It is equipped with hanging space, a chest of drawers and side lamp on a bedside table.

Maison Betty Features:
Maison Betty is virtually a mirror image of Maison Agnes, you will find that the colour schemes are slightly different, but the layout and equipment are the same. Both have large dining tables that can be extended for big family meals although many people eat out in one of the many restaurants in the village, which is only five minutes walk away.

There are no bed settees in either of the gites as we find that our clients like to able to have bedrooms of there own, and therefore choose the time they go to bed. Every bed is provided with a freshly laundered mattress topper, pillows (with pillow protectors) and duvets. We understand that many of our clients will be flying and have limited space and therefore all of our bedding and towels are included in the price, however we do ask that they are not used on the beach or at the hot pools, as beach towels can be provided!

We also provide some baby care items such as travel cot, baby bath,high chair, some baby bedding and a sturdy baby carrier that can hold up to a four year old. These items should be booked in advance to ensure that they are available. We try to provide everything that you may need to make your holiday comfortable and as stress free as possible!

All of our prices include:

- Rental of the accommodation
- Electricity
- Bedding
- Linen and towels
- English or French TV
- Parking
- Use of the bbq areas

About Les Angles

Winter time is Les Angles is a great time to be here, not just for the skiers & snowboarders, but for anyone who is seeking something else or extra in their holiday. If you like to try new things, we have a wide range of activities available here in Les Angles, and we will do our best to arrange/organise these for you.

Skiing & Snowboarding:
Best Times: December-April
Les Angles is one of the premier Pyrenean ski stations with 50k of marked pistes and is part of the Neige Catalan ski domaine with 8 stations and over 330k of pistes. We are just 5mins walk away from the nearest lifts and nursery slopes. Several ski hire shops in the village have a range of quality equipment and clothing available for hire and purchase, suitable for all abilities.

The Pyrenees offer a traditionally French ski experience with easy access from the UK by car, train or air. We enjoy an excellent snow record supported by some of the best snow making facilities in France.

Our pistes are some of the best maintained in Europe and each station in the valley offers a different experience, perfect for mixed ability groups. With our new and updated lift system, queuing is a rarity outside high season. Choice of instruction from ESF, Ski’n Co and private instructors. Enjoy our dedicated snowpark and half pipe. A great boarder-cross course is created at different times of the season. Dedicated competitions in high season.

Cross Country Skiing:
Cross country skiing or 'Ski de Fond', is extremely popular in the Capcir region and each ski station has it’s own marked trails in addition to specialist Ski de Fond trails in the valley. A choice of pisted trails are available at Pla del Mir, Col de Quillan and Col de Llose throughout the winter season. Instruction and equipment can be hired locally.

Snow Shoeing:
Snow shoeing or Raquettes is one of the ancient methods of winter travel which was originally done using wooden shoes resembling oversize tennis raquets. With the advent of modern light weight materials, this sport has been transformed into an activity that anyone can now do. The high valleys of the Capcir/Cedagne provide a perfect base to explore the local trails or take on the remote high mountain routes.

Even though we specialise in getting away from the ski pistes, using the ski lifts enables us to undertake day trips to access the more remote winter places with a picnic lunch or a meal at a refuge. The network of guarded refuges enables us to undertake series of hut to hut treks staying at over 2000m each night without having to carry too much weight.

Equipment can be hired locally and you just need to bring your normal walking equipment and boots. We are qualified snow shoe guides and will be pleased to suggest appropriate routes or arrange bespoke guided trips for those who want to seek out those unspoilt slopes.

Summer in the Pyrenees:
There is just as much to see and do in Summer here Les Angles as there is in Winter, and with warm temperatures gracing the Pyrenees during Summer, this only adds to the enjoyment factor!

Best Times: June-October
Superb choice of way-marked trails to suit all abilities, from gentle rambles around the forests of Lac de Matermale to challenging ascents of peaks rising to nearly 3000m. ​The Pyrenees have a great net-work of guarded refuges allowing multi day walks to be completed in relative confort following either marked trails or demanding off path routes. We are able to suggest appropriate routes, what maps will be required, the easiest access routes and equipment needed to help you devise the best routes and maximise your holiday time and enjoyment. As professional International Mountain Leaders we can also devise and guide you on a bespoke walking holiday.

Best Times: June-October
Your host is a member of the local Font Romeu golf club but enjoys playing the three 18 hole courses in Puigcerda, just 35mins away as well as many of the other 8 courses nearby

Activities near Les Angles

Canyoning & Rafting
Best Times: JUNE - OCTOBER

Two great watersport activities that can be done in this area. Canyonning is undertaken with a guide and involves descending gorges by swimming, abseiling and jumping into deep rock pools wearing a wet suit and often involves all of the family.

Several rafting companies run trips down the river Aude with different levels of difficulty depending on the ages involved. It is possible to raft in the morning and hydro-speed in the afternoon, descending the river in your wet suit and a float and fins.

Best Times: JUNE - OCTOBER
With mile after mile of marked mountain bike routes this is a fantastic venue for keen bikers who like cross country as well as dare devil downhill tracks accessed from the Les Angles goldola at 2150m. Lovers of single tracks have a vast choice to attack and as the top UK mountain bike magazines have said “the area has some of the best single track trails in the world”.
