Le Fournil is a self contained vacation rental full of character, its name reflecting its agricultural past, when it was the bakehouse and grain store to the main house Le Couloumé, built around 1850. We have lovingly transformed Le Fournil into a spacious self catering holiday cottage and high quality Gite with all Mod Cons, whilst retaining most of the original features, with exposed beams in the two bedrooms and the old bread oven istill in place in the sitting room. Cottage sleeps 2 - 4 comfortably, the master bedroom has a superkingsize bed that can be converted to two singles, the second bedroom has a standard double bed. We also supply a cot and a high chair upon request.

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 pretty village in a range of hills sometimes known as the Little Pyrenees, in the Haute Garonne region.10 x 5 metre inground pool with stunning mountain views, paved beach area with sun loungers and solar shower. Pool is only shared with the owners and guests in the B&B room (no more than 2 people).

Summer 2017 fully booked, Spring and Autumn breaks still available.

Beautiful and peaceful location, perfect for a relaxing holiday, nestling in an ideal position we have access to some of the most stunning scenery that France has to offer. Great area for all outdoor pursuits, cycling paradise, from flat routes, or rolling hills to the famous Tour de France Cols. Perfect for a walking holiday too, with some walks starting right on our doorstep and numerous walks in the area, most giving wonderful mountain views.

Secure parking in our huge barn, we also offer secure storage for bikes. Bike hire available from a local company.

Geographically we are in the Central Pyrenees, almost equidistant between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean coast. We enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the Pyrenees across the valley - in fact we can see the mountains of three different départments, the Ariège in the east, the Haute Garonne in the south and the Hautes Pyrenees to the west, and even Spain!

When the sightseeing has finished for the day, you can relax in our quiet surroundings, on the sun terrace by the pool or just chill out with a drink on your private covered patio taking in the stunning mountain views. Table and chairs provided for outdoors dining, as well as a BBQ. Access to private cottage garden from the lounge via back door. Apart from your own private patio and garden, you're welcome to use the various seating areas in our garden, which faces south with spectacular views of the Pyrenees. Take a seat under the walnut tree and enjoy the view of the Pic du Midi in the distance, while away the hours on the sun terrace by the pool or lay in the hammock with a book, in the shade that our big Catalpa trees provide on hot days.

Our rates include all bed linen, towels as well as beach towels for the pool, tea towels, electricity, logs for wood burner during winter, Wifi internet, Taxe de Séjour (20 cents per person per night for guests over 13 years), final clean. Towels and linen are changed weekly for stays of 2 weeks or more. Cot and highchair available on request. All prices based on up to 4 people sharing. Our location in the Central Pyrenees is ideal for house hunting and exploring the area, and we would be happy to share our experiences with you, recommend estate agents etc., contact us for longer lets in the low season.

The Occitanie region

The grandeur of the mountains; the magnificent rivers and lakes; the beautiful, ever-changing landscape; the canopy of stars in the dark night skies; the neat villages and the friendliness of the people totally won us over. Whatever the season, you can enjoy a huge variety of activities in this part of the Pyrenees: cycling, walking, skiing, hiking, paragliding, rafting, climbing, golf, tennis, and many more, nearby or within a short drive from us. Close by you will also find wine festivals; country fairs; music festivals; pre-historic cave paintings; Roman villas and a history rich in drama, romance and tragedy. The departmental capitals of Toulouse, Pau and Auch - rich in shopping and cultural attractions - are within easy reach by car; or by train from Montréjeau - just 8 miles down the road. Toulouse is well served by international airlines like BA or Easyjet, from London airports. Lourdes Tarbes airport is also only 45 minutes by car.

Just to name a few sites: Saint Bertrand de Comminges, 12 miles, one of the most imposing sites in the area in an exceptional setting, with its medieval cathedral Sainte Marie surrounded by the old town.

Montmaurin, Gallo Roman villa, only 6 miles

Lourdes, famous grotto and destination of millions of pilgrims each year, 1 hours drive from us

Pic du Midi du Bigorre: For an unforgettable experience, be sure to visit the Pic du Midi observatory, over a 1000m above the Col du Tourmalet. The 360 degree views are quite stunning, an evening visit (requires booking in advance) for stargazing is also highly recommended.

Or why not go to another country? The closest route into Spain takes 1 hour through Le Vallée de Luchon. Also a very worthwhile visit is the Spanish medieval village of Ainsa, via St Lary Soulan through the tunnel of Bielsa approximately a two hour drive from us.

We are a 2 hrs drive from the Atlantic coast, worth a day trip to visit the elegant seaside resort of Biarritz with its grand hotels lining the seafront, and to enjoy a good lunch in one of the many restaurants. Or spend the day at St. Jean de Luz, a picturesque seaside village with a pretty centre with strong Basque influences, lovely beach. There is a basque festival in summer, with street music and a great atmosphere.

In winter you can choose from several ski resorts for skiing, snow boarding or snow shoeing, the closest is about a 40 minute drive, Boutx Le Mourtis.

Bagnères de Luchon is under 1 hour from us, the locals call it La Reine des Pyrénees, the queen of the Pyrenees! It has been a well known spa town for centuries, famous for its Thermal springs, first discovered by the Romans, and elegant town houses. It has its own ski resort, Superbagnères, which in winter is connected to the town via a cable car, but is worth driving up to outside the skiing season for the fantastic views from the top and hikes that start from there. The road to Superbagneres is also a great cycling climb.

Other ski resorts all within 40 minutes to a good hours drive from us: Bourg d'Oueil, Peyragudes and Nistos Cap Nestes.

Montrejeau

Loudet is a very small village without shops. There is a small supermarket (with bread depot), a post office and a bar just 2,5 km away in the next village, Saint Plancard.

The town of Montréjeau is ca. 10 minutes by car: two supermarkets, a variety of bakeries, shops, restaurants, tourist office, weekly market etc.

Towns of St. Gaudens and Lannemezan are both 10 miles away, with more shops, restaurants and facilities on offer.

The Tour de France makes its way through the Pyrenees every year, so why not join us on the bike for some of the best cycling available in Europe, follow in the footsteps of the tour heroes to tackle some of the great Cols.

There are excellent walking opportunities for all levels, some lovely walks can be done straight from our house. Our land is bordered by the Canal de Franquevielle, we have a gate leading onto the public footpath running along the canal, a wonderful walk where the canal meanders through meadows, fields and forests, it would also be ideal if you fancied a morning jog or take your mountain bike for a ride.

Or join us for an evening of stargazing and discover the magic of seeing the Milkyway, planets and shooting stars in the dark skies with hardly any light pollution.

The long distance hiking trail GR86 (from Aurignac to Bagnères de Luchon, 154km) passes through LeCuing, a village a few minutes from us.

Canoeing, rafting and kayaking on the river Garonne.

“Quality accommodation provided by superbly kind and considerate hosts....extremely impressive.”

Reviewed 23 May 2014

Any stay at a new destination previously unseen is a gamble....but not in this case. Anyone who books this cottage can only be happy with their choice. The most telling point I would make is that the hosts present their holiday accommodation to the highest of standards. This lovely accommodation is very tastefully and well presented and has the added benefits of a lovely location and a superb swimming pool in the grounds of the property. Please, if staying here, respect the quality of this gite and leave it in the same condition you will find it..in other words... in an excellent condition.

Thank you, it was an absolute pleasure having you as our guests, happy to hear that you had a great holiday here. We enjoyed introducing you to the local cycling routes and look forward to seeing you again soon. Brian and Marianne
