If you are looking for a base for a varied and interesting road biking holiday in the Pyrenees, these chalet-style self-catering units are perfectly placed and great value if you are on a budget.

From here you can hop on your road bike to tackle several of the cols that feature on the Tour de France such as the Col de Menté, Col du Portillon, Peyresourde, Port de Bales or Col d’Aspin. Or, if col-bagging is not your thing, then head down the valley and enjoy gentler riding on the quiet country lanes of the undulating foothills. There is riding here for everybody.

If you don’t want to hire a car then we can arrange airport transfers from Toulouse. We can also arrange the hire of a top end Willier carbon road bike if you wish. Vehicle and mechanical support, route advice, maps and GPS tracks, whatever your requirements we can put together a complete package for you.

What’s included

For your convenience, beds are made up on arrival but you will need to bring your own towels. Should you not wish to do end of stay cleaning then cleaning can be arranged for a fee of €27. Electricity is on a meter and will be charged according to actual consumption and based on EDF’s current rates.


There are 2 chalets at this location. Both can accommodate up to 4 people in 2 bedrooms.

Both chalets have double glazing and an open log fire which us wonderfully cosy in the winter. There are also electric wall heaters should you just need the chill taking off, although you should be aware that electricity is charged extra.

One chalet has a double and a twin bedded room and the other has a double room and a bunk bedded room with full size bunks suitable for adults as well as children. The bathroom facilities in each include a shower, washbasin and WC. The kitchen is basically but adequately equipped with standalone electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge freezer and dishwasher. There is a separate external laundry available to users of both gites which includes washing machine and dryer.

Outside, kick back on one of the sun-loungers and light the barbecue for an al fresco summer picnic.


Located in a lovely setting, perched on the side of the hill near Bagiry in the Barousse Valley between Montrejeau and Luchon (15-20 minutes). The village of Loures Barousse is just 5kms down the road where you can buy all foodstuffs that you may need.
