La Lanterne Rouge Pyrénées Cycling Lodge is in the beautiful medieval village of Saint Savin in the Hautes Pyrenees. We are open from March to November and provide accommodation for cyclists only (non cycling partners are welcome). We have 6 Tour de France climbs ( Soulor/Aubisque, Borderes, Cambasque, Luz Ardiden, Tourmalet & Hautacam + many more) within 15km of our guest-house. Saint Savin is the perfect base to explore the central Pyrenees. Check all the area has to offer a cyclist on www.velopeloton.com.

We can accommodate 15 cyclists in our 5 ensuite bedrooms, all with beautiful views of the mountains. For larger groups we use rooms in a nearby hotel.
We serve a continental breakfast with some added extras to help with the need for carbohydrates. At 18:30 in the evening we serve dinner with lots of pasta, rice and potatoes, just what you need after a hard day in the mountains. Many of our guests say the food is the highlight of the trip.
We have a lounge area with leather seating, open log fire and French and international television. We have wifi available is all our rooms and free for your use. The house is strictly no smoking.
