Secret Pyrenees is a boutique chambre d'hotes in the foothills of the French Pyrenees. A renovated 18th century farmhouse with 4 hectares of parkland, a beautiful garden and a large swimming pool - it's the sort of place where you'll want to linger a while.

We're ideally situated, only 20kms from Pau, yet also a 25 minute drive to the mountains, with access to epic cycling routes, trail running, kayaking, climbing, mountain biking and every other form of adventure you can think of!

The space
Formerly known as Maison Rancesamy, the house is a lovingly renovated 18th century Béarnaise farmhouse set in the Jurancon wine region. We have 3 bedrooms on offer, in a self contained annex of the house, complete with a snug and an al fresco living room.

Breakfast is either served on the terrace overlooking the mountains, on the porch or in our dinning room, should the weather be less than desirable.

Guest access
You're welcome to walk around our beautiful and lush garden, as well as make use of the 12x6m swimming pool.

Other things to note
The room is situated on the ground floor and has it's own bathroom. It's a dual aspect bedroom and is tiled with exposed stone walls. The en-suite bathroom has a stone tiled Italian walk-in shower.

Location

Lasseube, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France

We live in the Coteaux du Jurancon, a wine producing area of the Bearn Pyrenees. Sandwiched between the 'Pays Basque' and the 'Haute Pyrenees', the Bearn Pyrenees is a bit of a hidden gem offering the best of all worlds. We nickname Lasseube the Kathmandu of the Pyrenees, being only 115kms from the Atlantic ocean, yet only 60kms from Spain. You can go skiing on a Saturday and surfing on a Sunday.

It's a curious job title, but I'm an adventure athlete and journalist. Indeed, I'm lucky in that my job is my passion and I travel the world, racing and writing my experiences. I write a weekly column for Telegraph Men and contribute to most of the major outdoor and fitness titles. I love trail running, cycling, mountain biking, kayaking, adventure racing, open water swimming and anything else that gets your heart racing in the outdoors. I compete on an international scale and occasionally, with a prevailing wind, do quite well. I've lived in half a dozen countries and once upon a time served in the British Army. I now live in the foothills of the French Pyrenees with my wife, Zayne and daughter, where we run a chambre d'hotes for adventurers called Secret Pyrenees.
