Pyrenees Discovery (May - Sep)
- Location: Pyrenees, France Emphasis: Riding and relaxing Meals: Breakfast and Dinner included Group Size: 2-6 people. Our base for this trip is a traditional Pyrenean house in a quiet village in the heart of the Pyrenees National Park. This relaxing location is just a few meters from a charming cafe with outside seating, from local shops and from the quaint little town square. Daily rides will take you through some stunning mountain scenery along peaceful roads and on some of the Tour de France mountains you’ve seen on TV. After each ride we can go over to the Bar-Restaurant for a coffee or have a drink in the large yard at out accommodation. Part way up the Port de l’Hers climb which starts outside our front door is the bucolic Etang de l’Hers lake where you can go for hikes, a calming walk around the lake, or sit and have lunch and a drink at the lake-side café. A selection of local and regional wines from the Midi-Pyrenees area such as the Corbiere, Gaillacois and Madiran will be available to you in the evenings along with some local dishes and cuisine, such as duck and Cassoulet along with the usual BBQ specials such as Toulouse Sausage. Ride distances vary from 40 - 125km with most rides being around 70km. E-mail us for further information, detailed itinerary or questions on firstname.lastname@example.org
