Also know as Villa Gracieuse, our stunning newly renovated Villa in the beautiful Pyrenean town of Bagnères-de-Luchon (the Queen of the Pyrenees) is perfectly suited for activity holidays all year round.

The Free Range Chalet

Villa Gracieuse is located at the end of a quiet residential street, and we can't wait to share it with you. 


The Ideal Location

Set in her own grounds, on a quiet street just 5 minutes walk from the centre of town. Those visiting in summer (or late winter) can take advantage of evening meals outside, or just relaxing on one of our loungers in the garden.

We've lovingly restored this building, and have kept many of the original features, whilst modernising the facilities.

This beautiful Villa was constructed during the boom era of the late 19th Century in the traditional Luchonnaise way - we have fireplaces directly under the windows where the chimneys branch off to one side.

The Interior

Each room has hints of Villa Gracieuse's glorious past, from the dumb waiter hatch in the lounge to the marble fireplaces in each room. 

There's plenty of space for everyone to spread out and enjoy some relaxation after your day in the mountains.

Take a look at our stunning rooms and bathrooms.

The Dining Room

The heart of the house is the dining room. From the grand dining table there are stunning views up and down the valley that will keep you mesmerised as you tuck into your meals.

The Living Room

Relax after a day on the mountain in our cosy lounge and watch a film, listen to some music or simply play one of our many vintage and not so vintage board games.

The Bedrooms

We have 5 large en suite bedrooms and can comfortably accommodate 15 people. Each bedroom has been tastefully renovated and can be set up as twin or superking. We have two family/friends rooms, one with separate bunk room, the other with ample space for 5 single beds. All rooms also have the option of a cot or fold out bed.

The Bathrooms

Each of our spacious bedrooms has an ensuite bathroom, all with basins and toilets.

To soak away the aches and pains from a day on the mountain, the two family suites have baths with overbath showers. The remaining three rooms have a shower cubicle.

About us

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, far away we were both practising Civil Engineers. We have always been big lovers of the outdoors and our particular passion is skiing.

For many years we considered working a ski season, but it wasn't until the summer of 2010, when Victoria was made redundant, that we felt we finally had the opportunity to work 'just one' ski season before 'returning to real life'. Nine years later and we're still here!

We decided early on that we wanted to do this for ourselves, and set about learning the trade, realising that not only could we learn from the things that were done really well, but crucially, that we could avoid things that made guests feel uncomfortable or frustrated.

We love our vocations (its not a job, it's a lifestyle choice!) and seeing our guests have the very best week. Holidays are precious and we will do everything we can to make sure that you have a hassle and stress free break with The Free Range Chalet.

We are your hosts, chefs, chauffeurs and much more (or less if you prefer) during your stay and we look forward to welcoming you into our home.
