Cyclistes au col de l’Aubisque

The Pyrénées differently: head off on the Route des cols (mountain passes)

The Route des cols (mountain passes) weaves its way through the Pyrénées from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. Crossing over 34 main passes and 17 loops, to do on a one-day trip (by car or motorbike!) it invites us to discover sites chosen to illustrate the richness of the Pyrénées mountain range.

The Route des Cols runs across the Pyrenees from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean. With its 34 cols and 17 daily loops (by car or motorcycle), it invites you to enjoy the sites selected to illustrate the riches of the Pyrenean mountain range.

The Nouvelle-Aquitaine part of this spectacular itinerary goes from Hendaye on the Basque coast to the Col d’Aubisque in Béarn, covering 234 kilometres and 12 cols. It proposes 5 loops per day to discover Basque villages, the Basque mountains, the Musketeers, the Béarn mountains and a tour of the valleys via the Aubisque and the Soulor, with their marvellous panoramic views.

The site www.laroutedescols.com will give you all practical information. The 3D cartography allows you to visualise the itinerary and you can also prepare your trip from one point to the next, with a list of accommodation and sites to see at each stage, or find out the details of the daily loops as well as a host of ideas for trekking.

The Route des cols (mountain passes) is also a favourite for seasoned cyclists. Pages dedicated to cycling in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques help you get off to a good start and offer lots of useful information.

Head for the heights!

Chambre d'hôtes Amphitryon

Patrick and Corinne welcome you in one of their five Bed and Breakfast rooms (awarded 3 "keys"), in this old parsonage dating from the XVIIIth century, in the heart of the Medieval city. Right from the entrance, the tone is set: old stones and woodwork mix with wrought iron elements, creating a warm atmosphere. Here, you will enjoy the relaxing lounge, the card table, TV, the reading area and, in winter, the authentic Bearnese fireplace.
Outside, you will discover a priest's garden and our organic kitchen garden to delight the taste-buds. In the evening, you can enjoy our friendly "table d'hôte" and our local specialties... as well as the chef's surprises!
