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 in a peaceful and tranquil location, still 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? Do you love nature, wildlife, walking, stargazing or birdwatching?
We can offer you all of this and more, so come and stay at Le Fournil, our beautifully restored cottage, independent and self-contained, comfortably sleeping 2 - 4 people. We have lovingly transformed it into a spacious 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.
Le Fournil once was the bakery and grain store for the main house Le Couloumé, a traditional French farmhouse built around 1850, 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.
We enjoy magnificent far reaching and uninterrupted views of the Pyrenees across the valley - 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.
Geographically we are in the Central Pyrenees, almost equal distance between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean coast, ideally located for exploring this wonderful area. Nestling in a lovely position we have access to some of the most beautiful scenery that France has to offer.
