my good friend Mark and myself planned the trip to the Pyrenees to enjoy the many local iconic cycling and tour de France routes. We were not disappointed. we were over 8 hrs late to arriving due to BA flying us in without our bikes and I was worried that we would not eat that night. I needn't have, arriving at 10 pm Carolyn and Stef' we there waiting for us, and after seeing us in, introduced us to the fantastic cooking we were to receive for the rest of our 4 night stay. I can truly say that we were left wanting for nothing. Highlights were the substantial cyclists breakfasts, and evening meals, great conversations hospitality and fantastic scenery. There are two very good cycle shops within easy distance and if you want to eat out plenty of local restaurants. highly recommended
Another great holiday with Carolyn & Stef. Great host ad great friends.
We normally stay for skiing but decided to see what it was like with no snow on the ground. Wasn't dissapointed, the county side is beautiful and the mountains still dramatic even if you have to drive over instead of ski down them.
As always the food at Chalet Tourmalet was beautiful and we were made very welcome. Looking forward to returning now in January.
Perfect location for many different routes whether cycling from chalet or short drive to take on different cols.
Carolyn and Stephan were the perfect hosts being wonderful company and attentive to all of our needs.
Carolyn's food was full of variety and worthy of a Michilan star and even Stephan boiled the eggs to perfection!
Great week, great hosts, great food.
Highly recommended, 5 stars!

Spent 4 days cycling with 7 friends. Carolyn and Stefan were much better company than my friends!
We all had a great time, along with a lot of laughs (and tears cycling Tourmalet!)
Was like being looked after by my Mum and Dad, nothing was ever a problem for Stefan and the food was out of this world. Carolyn could defiantly run a Michelin star restaurant no problem, it really is that good.
I will defiantly be going back next year and will be recommending to anyone thinking of going to the area.
Thank you both for a great weekend and see you next year!
Wow, just back from a great cycling weekend based at Chalet Tourmalet
Couldn’t have been better.
8 guys intent on cycling the Cols.
Carolyn and Stef are great hosts with much knowledge of the area and were so helpful.
We were picked up and dropped off from Lourdes airport and on arrival immediately felt ‘at home’.
Carolyn’s cooking is exceptional and we all felt thoroughly spoiled.
I can not recommend Chalet Tourmalet enough.
Try staying there you will not be disappointed
Visited the chalet in January as a group of 8 for a skiing trip and I can’t praise the accommodation and hosts enough. Carolyn and Stefan are amazing hosts and really do make the experience the best it can be. The food throughout the week was amazing and the drinks available made it the perfect combination.
Thank you for an amazing week and I hope to be back next year!
Me and a group of 7 friends stayed at Chalet Tourmalet for a week in January 2018. Carolyn and Stefan were more than accommodating. They gave us lifts to and from the mountain every day. As a previous chalet host myself, the food was above and beyond my expectations. The chalet was everything you would need after a day of skiing, especially the hot tub! Overall a great experience and would recommend to everyone.
