Is the following grammatical?

In order to say, "i prefer our houses to theirs" is it acceptable to say, "Je préfère nos maisons à les leurs ." ?

As an aside, I found it so easy to add accents in this new format. It is a super improvement indeed!

Hi Andrea , 

It would be -

aux leurs

Almost correct: à + les = aux.

non, malheureusement, j'ai bien peur que tu doives dire" aux leurs", puisque "a les" n'existe pas en francais et est toujours emplace par "aux"
