Pyrenees Cycling Holidays

We are Brian and Marianne, your hosts at Le Couloumé bed & breakfast and Le Fournil, our lovely holiday cottage Gite. A few years ago we decided to make a long-held dream reality: quit the stresses of commuting to London and start a new life in the French Pyrenees. Now you can share our dream and spend some time in this wonderful part of France with its stunning panoramas and rich history.

The ideal Pyrenees cycling holiday destination, with both holiday cottage and separate bed & breakfast accommodation, set in quiet grounds with stunning views of the mountains with a lovely sun trap swimming pool, we offer a great holiday experience.

Positioned in the Central Pyrenees we have easy access to some great climbs, the Port de Bales, the Col du Mente, Col de Peyresourde, Col d'Aspin, to name a few. We can even ride out to the Mythical Tourmalet, a fantastic day out, taking in the Baronnies, and Col d'Aspin, another regular feature in the Tour de France.

Due to our central location we are also easy driving distance to just about any of the other Cols of the Pyrenees.
But it's not always about "bagging Cols", if you fancy a more gentle ride, we have flat routes, rolling hills and just about any combination that takes your fancy. Generally our roads are quiet and the drivers are considerate, it's a joy to ride on pothole free roads with such breathtaking landscapes!
If you worry about getting lost, let us know, we are usually happy to join you on rides, we know loads of great routes and where the water stops are.


We have a beautiful holiday cottage or two stunning Bed & Breakfast rooms on offer.
The cottage and B&B can also be booked together, for a bigger group; please contact us for more details.

Le Fournil is an independent self contained cottage, comfortably sleeping 4 people. We have lovingly transformed Le Fournil into a 2 bedroom holiday home with all modern comforts (incl. free WiFi), but have retained as many of the original features as possible, with exposed beams in the bedrooms upstairs and the old bread oven still in place in the lounge downstairs.
