My road biking partner and I stayed here in September as the first overnight stop on our cost to cost road biking trip and I cant recommend the place enough. Its set in the beautiful old part of town and the property itself is lovely, with the most charming rooms and the comunal areas and dining room are beautiful and very welcoming. We stayed in a twin room at the very top of the peoperty which was lovely with really comfortable beds, great shower and a beautiful view of the little square.
As for the hosts, you could not have asked more more charming, welcoming and helpful people and we spent the evening in their company as they prepared an amazing 5-6 course meal for us. The food was generous and very tasty and all served with generous helpings of the local wine. For breakfast we were fed a prober bikers breakfast that would keep us going for hours and also given some chocolate treats for the journey.
All in all we had a great stay at the the Amphitryon and would love to come back there, so much so that I would even consider traversing the Pyrenees on a bike again just to justify going back for another stay.
Very highly recomended.
