This is a great self-catering villa with a separate apartment within reach of the Pyrenees. In fact, it’s ideal for the Mediterranean, the mountains or even a quick pop across into Spain for the day. The biking here is mixed with something for everyone (there are even a few spare bikes in the garage in case you haven’t brought your own). The villa sleeps nine people, making it a good base for groups, while the smaller apartment is ideal for couples or single riders looking for a quiet training or touring base. Onsite swimming pool, plus free wifi. English spoken.
