We only spent one night here on our motorbike tour, and we wish it had been more! Jon and Debs are fantastic hosts and made us feel completely at home. They even cleared a space in the garage for our bike.

Dinner was delicious and relaxed with a wide range of choices - you certainly won't go hungry here! We really hope we can make it back one day.

Perfectly situated for climbing, walking or just exploring in the Pyrenees. The hosts are great who make you feel part of the family. Have been back twice already.

Found this place by chance and stayed for a couple of nights. Liked it so much we have booked it out as a gite in October. The accommodation is ideally located for climbing in the Ariege with one of the main crags a short walk from the front door and other crags a short drive.
Lovely comfortable open plan kitchen/sitting area and a great breakfast. Good place to meet other climbers, very sociable and the hosts can give you lots of information.
Very good value

Base Calames is a fantastic place to base yourself if you want to sample all the Pyrenees has to offer. We went specifically to ski, and had some great days at Ax le thermes, just 20 mins down the road. In the sumemr, it's a great spot for climbing, walking or cycling - the village is right in the middle of Tour de France country. We rented the gite, which was very comfortable especially the big main room with the log burner which was a really cosy place to spend the evenings. We paid extra for breakfast and supper, which was well worth it, especially after a hard day's skiing , and it was lovely to come back to a home-cooked, three course meal.
The accomodation itself is comfortable and practical, with plenty of room for bike/ski storage if needed. Definitely worth a visit!
