Really enjoyed our stay in this interesting place. Lots of history and a very interesting owner who will tell the stories. He is slowly restoring the building which does look a little run down on first sight. The rooms were beautiful and individually decorated. The meals were very nice, a good chef. Nice walks around the area and the owner...

A fantastic location in the heart of the French Pyrenees just minutes away from some of the iconic Tour de France climbs such as col de Marie Blanque.

I stayed at Les Fontaines for a while in 2012. The location is mind blowing, occupying its own little nook in the Pyrenees. The scenery seem like a quality carefully designed to leave a lasting impression on those who have stayed there. Richy is a tremendous cook. Some of the favorite meals of my life were had at his table....
