Tastefully appointed rooms that invite to relax. Lovely and exceptionally comfortable retreat for a couple, but also spacious enough to sleep a family of 4 or two couples. 10x5m inground pool, offering magnificent unobstructed mountain views, big paved beach area with sun loungers and solar shower. Pool is only shared with guests in the B&B (no more than 4 people). Peaceful and rural location, ideal for cycling, walking and all outdoors activities, birdwatching, stargazing or just to relax. Easy access to Toulouse, Tarbes-Lourdes, and Pau airports, Spain just 45 minutes away. Pyrenees Gite Le Fournil is a self contained vacation rental full of character, its name reflecting its agricultural past, when it was the bakehouse and grain store to the main house Le Couloumé, built around 1850. We have lovingly transformed Le Fournil into a spacious self catering holiday cottage and high quality Gite with all Mod Cons, whilst retaining most of the original features, with exposed beams in the two bedrooms and the old bread oven istill in place in the sitting room. Cottage sleeps 2 - 4 comfortably, the master bedroom has a superkingsize bed that can be converted to two singles, the second bedroom has a standard double bed. We also supply a cot and a high chair upon request. Le Couloumé is a traditional French farmhouse with several outbuildings sitting in over an hectare of land on a south facing slope in a commanding position in Loudet, a pretty village in a range of hills sometimes known as the Little Pyrenees, in the Haute Garonne region. Beautiful and peaceful location, very tranquil, perfect for a relaxing holiday. Nestling in an ideal position we have access to some of the most stunning scenery that France has to offer. Great area for all outdoor pursuits, cycling paradise, from flat routes, or rolling hills to the famous Tour de France Cols. Perfect for a walking holiday too, with some walks starting right on our doorstep and numerous walks in the area, most giving wonderful mountain views. Secure parking in our huge barn, we also offer secure storage for bikes. Bike hire available from a local company. Geographically we are in the Central Pyrenees, almost equidistant between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean coast. We enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the Pyrenees across the valley - in fact we can see the mountains of three different départments, the Ariège in the east, the Haute Garonne in the south and the Hautes Pyrenees to the west, and even Spain! When the sightseeing has finished for the day, you can relax in our quiet surroundings, on the sun terrace by the pool or just chill out with a drink on your private covered patio taking in the stunning mountain views. Table and chairs provided for outdoors dining, as well as a BBQ. Access to private cottage garden from the lounge via back door. Apart from your own private patio and garden, you're welcome to use the various seating areas in our garden, which faces south with spectacular views of the Pyrenees. Take a seat under the walnut tree and enjoy the view of the Pic du Midi in the distance, while away the hours on the sun terrace by the pool or lay in the hammock with a book, in the shade that our big Catalpa trees provide on hot days. Our rates include all bed linen, towels as well as beach towels for the pool, tea towels, electricity, logs for wood burner during winter, Wifi internet, Taxe de Séjour (66 cents per person per night for guests over 18 years), final clean. Towels and linen are changed weekly for stays of 2 weeks or more. Cot and highchair available on request. All prices based on up to 4 people sharing. Our location in the Central Pyrenees is ideal for house hunting and exploring the area, and we would be happy to share our experiences with you, recommend estate agents etc., contact us for longer lets in the low season.

About the neighbourhood
Loudet is a very small village without shops. There is a small supermarket (with bread depot), a post office and a bar just 2,5 km away in the next village, Saint Plancard. The town of Montréjeau is ca. 10 minutes by car: two supermarkets, a variety of bakeries, shops, restaurants, tourist office, weekly market etc. Towns of St. Gaudens and Lannemezan are both 10 miles away, with more shops, restaurants and facilities on offer. The Tour de France makes its way through the Pyrenees every year, so why not join us on the bike for some of the best cycling available in Europe, follow in the footsteps of the tour heroes to tackle some of the great Cols. There are excellent walking opportunities for all levels, some lovely walks can be done straight from our house. Our land is bordered by the...
Getting around
We recommend you have a car (your own or a hire car) to be able to fully explore everything this region has to offer. The closest train station is in Montréjeau, about 10 minutes drive from us, with trains to Toulouse, Tarbes and Pau.
