New Vegetarian/Vegan Guesthouse in France

July 11, 2017

La Maison d’en Bas is a recently-restored guest-house, located in the village of Etsaut, approximately 50 metres from the central village square and 50 metres from la Maison du Parc (information centre for the Pyrenees National Park). All food is vegetarian (with vegan options available): breakfast and evening meals are served in the dining room on the ground floor, or if the weather allows, guests can also eat their meals in the back garden. Paul, the proprietor, is an experienced cook, with extensive experience of vegetarian and vegan cookery.

Etsaut is a sleepy village, situated on the East bank of the Aspe River.  It has about 70 full-time residents. Its position is unique inasmuch as it is on the crossing point of two major walking routes: the ancient pilgrimage route known as the Camino de Santiago de Compostela (which follows the valley from North to South), and the GR10 long-distance footpath (which stretches from West to East, from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean coasts). Consequently, in the summer months, it is an important stopping point for both for pilgrims and for hikers and climbers. In the main village square, there is a café-bar, which is open every day from 7.30am, which also has a small grocery shop attached to it. There is also a weekly (Summer) market. On the other side of the river, about 10 minutes walk from Etsaut, is the medieval village of Borce, which also has similar facilities.

house20from20road Auberge St Pastous

Auberge St Pastous is our small BnB in the Hautes Pyrénées region of France.

We are a great place to stay for short or long breaks or even to pop in for a tea or coffee and home-made cake when you are in the region.

We have 3 lovely comfortable rooms all with stunning views, one with a huge private terrace.

This is a fantastic area with lots to do if you love the outdoors but also a wonderful place just to relax and enjoy the scenery.

Saint Pastous is a tiny village on the lower slopes of the Hautacam mountian, ideally situated in a rural environment but within easy reach of main roads.

We love meeting people and sharing experiences over our home cooked vegetarian food prepared by David who has the Cordon Vert Diploma from the Vegetarian Society UK.

May 7, 2016

We would like to welcome Le Chevel Blanc to the list of vegetarian B&B’s in France.

Le Cheval Blanc is situated in the heart of the stunning medieval town of St Antonin-Noble-Val in SW France, which nestles in the spectacular Aveyron gorge. The house was built in the 16th century and was an Auberge called “Le Cheval Blanc” until the early 20th century when it became a private house. We’re proud to be returning the building to its original function and name.,Guests have access to a fully equipped kitchen, and a large, rather grand lounge and dining area. There’s secure storage for bicycles and motorbikes by prior arrangement. Special diets (vegan and gluten free) are catered for (notice is appreciated!). WiFi is available free of charge throughout the building, and all rooms also have ethernet access.We’re currently rated 9.1 on booking.com

We also run cycling holidays, lunch, while out riding in veggie friendly restaurants. In the evening guests can eat our vegetarian evening meals, or we can help out with local veggie friendly places. The cycling web site is here: www.stantoninnoblevelo.com
