Would you like to get away from it all, are you looking for a beautiful holiday cottage in a stunning part of the French Pyrenees, peaceful and still relatively unspoilt by mass tourism, to relax and recharge your batteries? Have you always dreamt of cycling the famous Cols of the Tour de France, the ultimate challenge for every cyclist?
We can offer you both and a lot more, so come and stay at Le Fournil, our beautifully restored self catering gite for up to 4 people, with stunning panoramic views of the Pyrenees.
Le Fournil is an independent self contained cottage, comfortably sleeping 4, its name reflecting its agricultural past, when it was the bakehouse and grain store to the main Farmhouse Le Couloumé, built around 1850. 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.
Our house 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 small and rural village in the Haute Garonne Département of the Pyrenees, just on the border to the Hautes Pyrenees Département. Geographically we are in the Central Pyrenees, almost equal distance between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean coast.
The nearest airport is Lourdes/Tarbes (45 mins by car), Toulouse and Pau airport are a good hour away. We are also only a 45km drive from Spain, through the Vallée de Luchon.
Nestling in an ideal position we have access to some of the most beautiful scenery that France has to offer. From lovely rolling hills, through to the World famous Tour de France Pyrenean Cols.
10x5m in-ground pool with stunning panoramic views of the mountains, paved beach area, sun loungers and solar shower.
We enjoy beautiful views of the Pyrenees across the valley - in fact we can see the mountains of three different départments, the peaks of the Ariège in the east, the Haute Garonne in the south and the Hautes Pyrenees with the Pic du Midi to the west, even some of the Spanish peaks are visible from our house, including the highest peak of the whole Pyrenean range, the Pic de l'Aneto, 3404m.
When the sightseeing has finished for the day, you can relax in our quiet surroundings, or just chill out with a drink on your private covered patio taking in the stunning mountain views.
Our high quality well equipped accommodation, with TV system will welcome you, and later our beds are perfect for a comfortable and rejuvenating nights sleep, ready for whatever sightseeing challenge you have planned for the following day.
