About the home
Our three properites have been created from a traditional French Farmhouse and barns with many original timbers and local stonework. We are situated in the hamlet of Thuy in the Haute Pyrenees and although rural we are not isolated being only ten mins to the motorway with its good links to the airports of Pau, Toulouse and Biaritz.
We as 'Allons-y Pyrenees' specialise in sporting holidays in particular cycling and have the perfect set up for large groups but for many of our guests we just offer that perfect, quiet location to get away and Relax!
We are in the perfect spot to explore what the Pyrenees has to offer with skiing, snowboarding and snow shoeing in the winter, to the famous Cols, national parks, lakes and picturesque spa towns.
The historic pilgrimage town of Lourdes is only 35mins away and Pau, Tarbes, Auch and Toulouse are all within easy reach.
