Cyclists Marianne and Brian would love to host you in the foothills of the Pyrenees. They have a beautifully restored self-contained cottage for 4-5 people (with 10x5m pool and mountain views), plus a super-kingsize and a double room for B&B in their home next door. In the central Pyrenees on the border with the Hautes Pyrenees, they have access to some of the best cycling in France – from pan flat routes to lovely rolling hills and Tour de France cols. The start of the Port de Bales, either side of the Col de Mente and the Col d'Aspin, and the Portet de Aspet are all around 30km away. Superbagneres, the Portillon and the Peyresoude are within reach, while even the Tourmalet is a 150km round trip (a great day in the saddle). Or ask the Brian and Marianne about the lovely local rides through the beautiful Baronnies, a challenging landscape that sits in front of the Aspin and Tourmalet (and a true hidden gem). Free wifi. Storage/workshop, plus loads of local knowledge and bike chat from Marianne and Brian (they can also provide some company on the cols if you're riding alone). English, French and German spoken.
