How we enjoyed our week of cycling in the Pyrenees, where we were guests at Mark and Niamh's Cycling Lodge! Mark and Niamh turned out, besides being owners of this cozy lodge, to be avid cyclists. On the first day, after a warm welcome, they immediately thought along with us about a suitable trip for that afternoon. And on all other days they always gave us good advice, based on weather conditions, distances and of course altimeters. The meals were also excellent! In the morning, a tailor-made breakfast, with a choice of scrambled eggs or Mark's famous porridge. And the evening meal was always a surprise to look forward to; a delicious and varied three-course dinner. We had a spacious room with a balcony, a neat bathroom and plenty of storage space. In addition, the accommodation offers space for a bicycle cellar, a cozy garden with various seating areas and an honesty bar for a drink after cycling. The lodge is located in a beautiful village, which it is recommended to walk around in the evening. But what has stayed with us most, besides the beautiful surroundings with great cols of course, is the hospitality of Mark and Niamh! They really do everything they can to make your stay as pleasant as possible and show a lot of interest in the experiences and stories of their guests. In short; an amazing experience!

Thanks so much for taking the time to do the wonderful & thorough review Margot & Herman, we really appreciate it! It's great to hear how much you enjoyed your stay with us and in the area, the location is quite superb for cycling! You had the perfect length of time in the area to explore every corner of the valley, conquering every col around and even with a side trip to Spain & not forgetting your evening walks (some hikes..;o)...it really is amazing what you can do with a weeks stay! I'm sure you needed a holiday when you got home..;o) It was a pleasure to meet you both and we loved having your company around the Lodge...one of the things we love is the chat & laughs with guests. We look forward to when we can welcome you both again. In the meantime I'm sure you'll keep on cycling. All the best Niamh & Mark.

So many times I go away on holiday and think "I must write a review of this place" but never get around to it when I get back from holiday and work/home life takes over again. However, the Pyrenees Cycling Lodge was such an incredible place with fantastic owners (Niamh and Mark), that I really want to make sure other people know just how good this place is. The location of the PCL is fantastic being at the start of multiple awesome cycling routes - the Hautacam, Tourmalet, Col D 'Aubisque via Col De Soleur. It's also in the most picturesque and peaceful traditional French village. Our double room with the balcony was just incredible. The views were totally amazing. You can literally see the mountains when you're lying down! Definitely go for that room if you can. While it was hot during the day when we were there, the temperatures do drop at night and there was a handy fan to keep you cool, so there were no issues there. The food prepared by Mark and Niamh was superb. Exactly what you need after a long day of cycling. Mark's special porridge at breakfast gave me the energy to tackle all the TdF climbs - not sure I would have made it up otherwise! The dinners were also great. A special mention is needed for Niamh's incredible chocolate brownie which is probably the best thing I've ever eaten in my life. You're not going to go hungry here. The final thing to mention is the warmth and generosity of Niamh and Mark. They went out their way to help us and give us route recommendations but also gave us space and privacy to enjoy our meal and the surroundings. They were absolutely the perfect hosts, and we are grateful for everything that they did for us. Also, just a quick note about Covid - this wasn't ever a concern for us because there was great social distancing and everything was super clean with hand sanitisers etc & recommendations to wear masks in communal areas. All in all, this was a perfect place for a cycling break and I'm just sad that we couldn't stay longer. If you're hesitating about booking, please don't, you won't regret staying here!

Thanks so so much Shona & Joe, for the fantastic lengthy review. We really appreciate you taking the time to do this and spread the good word about us, so thanks a mill! It was great to meet you both and such a pleasure to have your company around the Lodge, we always enjoy a good chat & laugh. The view from the double room is quite something isn't it...you can go out climb the mountains and then come home, relax and look at them.;o) We're so glad you made it to stay with us & we hope it brightened up a bit of a crazy year for you. Haha, yes the brownie is quite a hit with people, I'll send you the secret recipe..;o) We really look forward to seeing you again sometime. Best of luck with everything. All the best Niamh & Mark.

Just between the Aubisque and Tourmalet, this lodge is a perfect place for cyclists that want to ‘attack’ the famous HC cols of the TdF and Vuelta. Niamh and Mark give you a warm welcome and run the place with passion

This is absolutely my favourite place to stay when cycling in the Pyrénées. The location is beautiful and well situated to go in either direction of Aubisque or tourmalet. The owners can also advise on a few hidden gems eg col de Tentes and Col du Troumouse or col borderes and col des spandelles. I’ve stayed for relaxed trips but also for a marmotte event. In both scenarios it’s a great place to stay. I can’t overemphasis how good the food is and how good it is pre or post cycling or hiking. Exactly what a cyclist needs, in a great location.

And off the bike as well for hiking activities...so much to do in the area. Look forward to seeing you again. All the best Niamh & Mark.

I've been looking back at photos of our week long stay back in August reminiscing of our favourite place on our Europe trip. Niamh and Mark at Pyrenees Cycling Lodge are fantastic host and have thought of everything. We stayed on the recommendation of friends and were not disappointed. The Lodge is an excellent base to do all the key climbs in the area, or do the Marmotte Pyrenees Gran Fondo if you are keen. Afternoons and evenings at the lodge are also great, debriefing with other guests about respective rides, watching the racing on the telly or having beers in the garden. Communal breakfast and dinner is a highlight with Mark behind the stove. When things open up again and overseas travel is an option again, I highly recommend a stay at the Lodge.
