Welcome to River Cottage


River Cottage is…….well we think, awesome! Situated in the heart of the Lesponne valley overlooked by the Midi-Pyrenees it is in a fabulous location and able to cater for all your holiday requirements.

Whether you like  walking or mountain biking, fishing or  kayaking or the tranquillity of bird watching  there is something for all ages and abilities to enjoy.

The highest peak in the Midi-Pyrenees is the Pic du Midi which was chosen as the location for the world’s first astronomical observatory. It is only 30 minutes from River Cottage and so a trip up in the cable car to see the spectacular view from the observation platform is a must.

River Cottage is also a perfect place to start and finish all your road cycling adventures. An easy warm up spin to the bottom of the valley will see you spoilt for choice for routes to challenge every cycling ability. We are, after all, at the foot of the Col du Tourmalet which features regularly in the Tour de France.

For suggestions for things to see and do see the activities pages which includes family friendly things to do within the valley or further afield.
