A Hidden Gem in Saint Mamet in the Pyrenees - Memorable Stay
We spent 6 unforgettable nights in June at this amazing B&B in Saint Mamet a little village near Bagneres de Luchon. Our experience from the first communication was great, as François made some great recommendations about transport etc. prior to our arrival. On arrival we were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome by Frédérique & François. They showed us around, explained how to get around, suggested the good restaurants in town and the neighbourhood. The town of Bagnères-de-Luchon is about a 10 minute walk and the thermal spa about 5 minutes away and it is also close to Span. We occupied a suite on the 1st floor with the most spectacular views of the mountains around. It had a living area and a kitchenette which we did not use, but was well equipped. The room and bathroom were spotless. The linens crisp and toiletries provided. Linen was changed on request and additional toiletries provided if required. The breakfast room has a great ambiance with candles lit around, soft music playing in the background, beautifully decorated and attention to detail with flowers and leaves picked from the garden which makes it special. The generous breakfast consisted of coffee/tea/milk/chocolate, juice, cereals, croissants, baguettes, bread, cold cuts, a variety of local cheeses, fruits, a selection of jams and home baked cakes. As we were celebrating our anniversary, Frédérique baked a special cake for us with candles and greetings. The garden is an oasis for relaxing leisurely with a book. It is beautifully lit up in the evenings. François was extremely helpful in providing us with details of great hiking trails and maps. We did the best hikes with the most spectacular sceneries. They both take pride and are passionate in what they do to ensure guests enjoy their stay with unforgettable memories. We were surprised when Frédérique showed up during our dinner at the restaurant nearby with 2 umbrellas, as it was raining and she realised we did not take the umbrella. We've stayed in numerous B&B's during our travels, but the hosts of this hidden gem made our stay the most memorable which exceeded our expectations. We hope to be back.
