You don’t have to be sporty to stay here but cyclists come to tackle the famous ‘cols’ as seen in the Tour de France, and other less-challenging routes (Patricia can provide electric bikes and great picnics); walkers head off on memorable day-long trails and come home for a plunge in the pool.
The best sort of knowledgeable host, Patricia lives downstairs and is on hand for a chat and info on everything from caving to cultural sights; ask her too about catering for a special event, or running a workshop: photography, yoga, music, cookery. She loves to cook French classics like Daube and Poulet Chasseur; breakfasts are bakery-fresh with homemade jams, cheese and porridge if you like.
The feel here is very friendly, calm and comfortable. It’s 40 minutes to the nearest skiing at Le Mourtis, an hour and quarter to Toulouse, Blagnac airport.
