The perfect place to stay for exploring the French Pyrenees: With excellent facilities (swimming pool, games room, gym, hire bikes, taxi service, home-cooked food, cycle coaching) and a warm welcome.
Description of Allant Holidays Bed & Breakfast:Situated on the edge of a small village in the foothills of the Pyrenees, our house dates back to the 16th century and has since been extended to provide spacious bedrooms and communal areas. The building is set in secluded grounds with a swimming pool, sun terrace, children's play equipment and orchard. Inside is a large dining room, living room, games room and gym. We have five en-suite bedrooms and can accommodate families, individuals or groups.
We grow a lot of our own fruit and veg and have chickens for eggs, dogs, cats and a donkey to pet. We provide breakfasts, lunches and evening meals as needed, with all special dietary requirements catered for. We also have a self-catering suite.
Throughout the summer months we welcome cyclists of all abilities who want to ride over the famous Pyrenean mountains featured each year in the Tour de France.
Whether you just want a one-night stop over or a two-week holiday; this is a great place to stay.
Attractions:Come to stay with us for a totally flexible holiday. There is so much to do nearby with cycling, sight-seeing, adventure sports, and of course the beautiful countryside plus our own family-size swimming pool. There are numerous fun days out within a comfortable drive of the house. Visit prehistoric caves, castles and abbeys, take a drive into the mountains or a ride in the cable cars, experience Space City or one of the many animal parks, zoos and aquariums. Towns such as Lourdes, Pau, Tarbes and Toulouse have plenty to see. Spain and Andorra are close enough for a day trip, as are Carcassonne, the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts. We specialise in cycling holidays, so can provide top-level coaching, guided cycles or maps to follow with the family. Other sports available include golf; canoeing and kayaking; climbing and canyoning; abseiling; horse-riding; fishing; adventure parks in the trees; plus skiing, tobogganing, husky-sled driving or snow-boarding in the winter; swimming or tennis in the summer. There are walking routes for all abilities, from family walks starting at the house to guided rambling into the mountains.
