Charming Stone House in the Paradise of the Pyrenees
As soon as you go south to the Mediterranean, the Pyrenees reveal their two distinct features: their mountains and pastoral aspects. In natural surroundings, both peaceful and discreet, the roads lead you to two extraordinary denouements: The 43rd Regional Nature Park of France named ‘Pyrénée Catalanes’, with the majestic Mont Canigou (2784m), and the medieval village Vernet-les-Bains (Station Climatérique) with our small and charming stone house named ‘Maison OMAN’, just in the heart of this massif”. Here is real wellness, relaxation and a fabulous nature.

2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4, Garden

Vernet-les-Bains is a wonderful quaint village, where you will feel at home due to storekeepers and restaurateurs generous hospitality. You will be pleasantly surprised to find a daily English or German newspaper available at the bookstore.
There are two natural hot springs public swimming pools in Vernet-les-Bains, one indoors for the winter season and one outdoor pool open during the summer. The Mediterranean beaches are about 45 min. away. The famous thermal bath (5 min. walk from „OMAN“) also has a natural hot water pool, and other recreational facilities like sauna, jacuzzi, hamam, and a small fitness center. (Request special brochure or visit www.thermes-vernet-com).

Maison ‘Oman’ is well suited for four persons. The house is part of a unique architectural construction consisting of 12 individual cluster houses named ‘Le Village Catalan’. ‘House ‘Oman’, being very comfortably equipped with modern and traditional Catalan furniture, has two terraces from where you can enjoy the most spectacular scenery and a stunning panorama view of the Pyrenees and Vernet-les-Bains. Inside, ‘Oman’ has nicely decorated stonewalls. Upstairs there is a well-equipped, new Catalan kitchen (style Louis XII), a Catalan dining alcove and a sitting room with an open fireplace, stereo-radio, CD/DVD-player and satellite television (ASTRA). Downstairs you will find a bathroom with bidet and two separate bedrooms with exits to a small patio (sun-garden).
The area in and around Vernet-les-Bains is undisputed one of the best trekking areas in Europe, and the tracks start just behind Maison Oman. Seasoned hikers or families with children all will appreciate the softness yet wildness of the mountains or the countryside, natural and wonderful, on the various marked trails.

Since 1992, Vernet-les-Bains has carried the title of “Village Arboretum”, “Village Fleurie” and in June 2000 the village was awarded “Station Verte de Vacances” - green holiday village. Welcome indeed!

  Trekking in the Pyrenees around
Mont Canigou (2784 m) and Maison ‘Oman’

You must try it: Trekking – or ”Randonnée”. Walking in the Pyrenees. Just behind Maison Oman. Pack your knapsack: Potable water (1½ litre for a 2 hrs. trekking), extra clothes, sun crème, sunhat, sunglasses and, of course something to eat underway.

During summertime the temperature can exceed 30 degrees C. Regardless of age it is a good idea to bring a walking stick. Always remember good walking shoes and if possible also a mobile phone. There is a good coverage for mobile phones in the mountains.

You can indeed choose to walk alone, if you just don’t forget to listen to your own physical messages. But always bring along a map of the area, depicting places for staying overnight or just for protection against the weather. You can buy such a map at the Tourist Office in Vernet-les-Bains.
Find your own convenient climbing speed. Pay attention to the heat. Make appropriate stops and enjoy the beautiful views over the village and the mountains. Look out for flora and fauna. Enjoy the quietness.

You will feel challenged by the nature, and your excitement will increase as you ascend. ”What is behind the next rock”?

The Pyrenees is a paradise, even if you are not a skilled trekker. The landscape has a variety of segments and varieties without being too difficult if you just follow the marked paths and color-marked routes.
