Description for B&B:

Le Fournil is 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 restored it, maintaining most of the old features like exposed beams in the bedrooms, even the old breadoven is still in place downstairs behind the woodburner in the living room.

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.

Beautiful tranquil 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, walking, hiking, bird watching, also cycling paradise, from flat routes, or rolling hills to the famous Tour de France Cols.

Geographically we are in the Central Pyrenees, almost equidistance 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, or just chill out with a drink by the pool or on your private covered patio taking in the stunning mountain views. Table and chairs provided for outdoors dining, as well as sun loungers and 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, or lay with a book, in the shade that our big Cadalpa trees provide on hot days.

Appréciations pour Pyrenees Gite Le Fournil, piscine 10x5m, vues montagnes panoramiques, en pleine campagne, Loudet:

Exceeded all expectations
Review by: Kevin Roberts, Juin 7 2018 4:47PM
Simply top notch & highly recommended. Weve used B&B and the gite and quality is outstanding. Great tranquil location, superb accommodation, Marianne & Brian are wonderful, friendly hosts and of course its a cycling paradise. Not forgetting the homemade strawberry jam which is a world beater.
Happy discovery

We have been coming to this part of France during the last twelve summers
and though we are familiar with the area we do like to try new places to stay.
Le Fournil was completely new with no reviews but ideally located for us. A warm and helpful response to our enquiry persuaded us to give it a try and we were not disappointed. The accommodation was exactly as described but even more charming than we expected.
Watching the light fade over the mountains as we sipped a glass of Brian's home-brewed beer set the seal on our first day at Le Fournil; a perfect start to an enjoyable stay.
Excellent Wi-Fi and multi-national TV meant we were never out of touch. Hard to fault Le Fournil.
