Mountain Cabin Europe: secluded mountain lodge/ private refuge in France

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin


About the property

Rent my very private mountain refuge. The cabin rental is beautifully located in a mountain paradise: high in the French Pyrenees on 6 hectares of own terrain. Enjoy the tranquility and solitude, the mountain air, south-European climate, snowy peaks, valleys, plants, woods and bears. From the door of my mountain lodge you can hike directly to the highest mountains of the Pyrenees where wild bears live. The authentic cottage is 140 years old and is recently renovated but still very basic, no electricity and no WIFI!

My refuge is extremely well suited for people that love mountain walking and hiking. Start your mountain biking and trail running trips directly from the forest path by my refuge. Other outdoor activities you can do close by are: angling, horseback riding, mountain climbing, rafting, paragliding, gliding and, in winter, skiing.

The nearby mountain hamlets are very French, old, characteristic and picturesque where people have lived for millennia. Visit also the great sights of the Pyrenees: Saint-Lizier, Foix, Lourdes, Pau with their medieval cathedrals, castles and walls: it is amazingly beautiful.

For the purists it is possible to rent my refuge in winter. In both winter and spring you can ski in the French Pyrenees. Spend a romantic Christmas or New Year’s eve in my hideout. Or rent my mountain chalet in spring or autumn, both very beautiful seasons to spend in the wild nature of the French Pyrenees.

My cabin has 2 floors and is perfect for couples and families. The mountain refuge has everything you need for a basic lifestyle, but nothing more: water, a wood stove ( wood), gas stove ( gas), a small kitchen, beds and an outside toilet. My refuge is best suited to adventurous people that like to camp. Me, the host, is far away so you have to do everything yourself here. Precise information you will receive upon booking.

You can park your car safely on a 8 minute walk from my mountain lodge.

Book my refuge and enjoy the beautiful wildlife, fresh air and famous mountains of the French Pyrenees. you and your group are sure to enjoy the secluded location of this authentic mountain house. Don't hesitate to contact me for all your questions!

Elegant mountain cabin in outstanding nature.

I would highly recommend to the person who is looking to get of the beaten track and experience true peace and quiet amidst a sensational setting in the French Pyreneen. Outstanding nature, fantastic walks, fascinating history. The cabin is elegant and has everything you need. Mark is a very available host when needed.

petite cabane pour sejour 100% nature

  • 5 of 5

séjour décompression totale. On découvre le lieu après 5 à 10 min de marche en descente (attention après pluies...).Notre cabane avec vue sur la montagne...L intérieur est rustique mais correspond au descriptif

Notre séjour s'est déroulé exactement comme on l'avait souhaité et la proximité des sentiers de randonnées permet de belles balades

A découvrir , retenir et y revenir

Grange du Biros authentique

  • 4 of 5

À l oree d un sous bois la grange de Mark est un vrai retour aux valeurs simples d une vie rustique tout près des chemins du tour du Biros. Mark est vraiment adorable , prévenant et très réactif pour que votre séjour se passe bien'. 3 couchages , poêle à bois, eau de source , et bougies . Même en plein hiver et sous la neige ce fut un vrai plaisir!

Owner's Response: Merci Olivier! Bon d'entendre que vous avez aimé votre séjour dans ma grange. Oui, la cabane est très adaptée pour revenir à la nature. Je ne suis pas là quand mes invités sont à la grange, mais s'ils ont besoin de moi je suis joignable et là pour aider. La grange a toutes les commodités de base. Il y a 3 lits et 5 matelas donc les groupes plus grands que 3 auront des gens qui dorment sur le sol :) MERCI!
