About Us

Les Sorbiers a traditional Pyrenean mountain chalet/Hotel where we specialise in family and group activity holidays and are based in Bareges all year round.

We can be found in the heart of our village of Bareges in the high Pyrenees which is an excellent location for spring, summer, autumn and winter activity holidays.

We have nine bedrooms furnished in pine and oak, each en-suite, some of our family rooms have a bath. At the end of a day in the mountains you can relax in our comfortable lounge with a drink from the bar.

We believe the essence of our hospitality starts with good organic food, in our dining room we serve the best fresh local produce bought locally, delicious French cuisine with vegetarian options and reasonably priced local wines. We also feature in a number of food guides, both in France and around the world. Our vegetarian options are offered daily and other dietary requirements are not a problem to us. Local dishes are sometimes on the menu but we work to the seasons and what is available to us. Garbure is one of the those hearty vegetable soups made with Tarbais beans and fortified with ham hock. Toulousian cassoulet with pork, sausage and goose a very rich meaty stew. The Bareges-Gavarnie lamb which has its own AOC and is the toast of several top London restaurants and can be found in Smithfield market London. Four different types of cheeses Ossau, Iraty, Val D'Aran & Bigorre. Desserts include egg batter, open fire, spit cooked gateau Brioche rum and orange sponge. Local wines include Madiran, St Mont, Jurancon and Pacherenc.

Our aim at Les Sorbiers is to ensure each of our guests have the great time here with us in the Pyrenees. Rob, Rachel and the team are committed that your holiday with us will exceed your expectations.

We have over 20 years of knowledge and information about this area of the high Pyrenees. We had always spent our holidays here and loved the area so much that we moved to this area of un-spoilt France. Les Sorbiers is our own hotel and is a fine period Napoleonic building in the heart of the village, which we have sympathetically restored and modernised to the level expected of high quality family run hotels throughout the Pyrenees. The knowledge we have is freely available to all those who come to stay here whether for a Winter skiing, cycling the cols, mountain biking, walking or a wildlife holiday we have guides with the knowledge to make your holiday here a memorable experience.

Moreover, we are able to offer a personal but professional approach, information and support. As a small family company we pride ourselves in offering a good and caring service.

Our guided holidays, all with qualified English speaking guides, are undertaken from our front door into the high Pyrenees of South West France which is also part of the Tourmalet ski resort (Bareges-La Mongie) - the largest ski domain in the French Pyrenees.
