About us

We are Brian and Marianne, your hosts at Le Couloumé bed and breakfast and Le Fournil, our lovely holiday cottage Gite. A couple of years ago we decided to make a long-held dream reality: quit the stresses of commuting to London and start a new life in the French Pyrenees. Now you can share our dream and spend some time in this wonderful part of France with its stunning panoramas and rich history.


Brian is a keen road cyclist and found a cyclist's nirvana here. He also brews a variety of beers of excellent quality, as anyone who tries them will attest.

Marianne, a Berliner by birth, with an inborn wanderlust, is a natural linguist speaking three and a half languages: German, English, French and a bit of Spanish. She is also passionate about vegetarian cooking, many ingredients coming from our potager, the typical French kitchen garden, where we grow a lot of our own fruit and vegetables.


We love our new life here and look forward to introducing this region to you.

Your hosts, Brian and Marianne
