Camping & Gites , French Pyrenees

Some friends have just added a new toilets & showers block for camping at their Gites. Mark and Eliane both ride and have a workshop, rapport with the local BMW and KTM dealers and local trail knowledge. Out in the sticks, lots of land and only an hour or so to the mountains.
Here's an image I made on Google Earth:

We stayed here a few years back.

Highly recomended. It looks a bit of a shed from outside the front but inside, it is totally different. Saying that, we camped!

Route 66 is a nice place and Moto oriented to the extreme. Routes, B&B listings,campgrounds etc. and trip planning and other general info is available (and rapidly expanding)at and associated websites. This is a bit of a commercial message, so take it as you see it.

When we ride into France from the Netherlands, we always stop at "Chez Leon" in La Roche en Ardenne. It's right in the middle of the Ardenne, nice twisty roads.

The hotel has rooms with and without a bathroom (every room has a sink though). 36 for the rooms without bath, rooms are all clean and simple. Dining in La Roche is excellent, there are some great restaurants along the river, and you can't fault Belgian beer...

Hotel has a garage for parking the bikes, also nice.

Royal Lodge Hotel, Symonds Yat, Wye Valley U.K

Stayed at this hotel a couple of days ago, nothing special but a perfectly good hotel in a lovely spot just under Yat Rock, paid for a single room but they gave me a nice en suite double as they were quiet, plenty of parking in the gravel car park but they told me to bring the bike up the pathway and put it just outside the front of the hotel which was handy as I didn't have my mud bud with me.
No t.v in the room but didn't miss it.

The Saracens Head is good pub and restaurant near by owned by the same people.

If you getting the ferry the next day it's worth staying in on your last night as it's only about 70 miles from Santander.

big +1 ... been there a few times, very bike friendly, superb locationa and excellent food.

I stayed here:

If you're looking for a little luxury in the south of France but don't want to get ripped-off, this is fantastic:

Secure parking, great rooms, beautiful views, pool, good breakfast, English spoken, good riding and restaurants nearby... about 100 per night B&B.

I know Pascale personally and have stayed as both a paying guest and a house guest; either way Pascale and Michel are fantastic hosts.
