The GR 10 or "Sentir Pyreneenne" as it is often called, is a classic mountain walk, not for the faint hearted! It crosses the Pyrenees from the Atlantic ocean to the Mediterranean sea via 866km of marked walking trails with 48km of ascent.
The route follows the French-Spanish border (remaining on the French side), with most walkers chosing to do the route from west to east, from Hendaye on the Atlantic coast to Banyuls-Sur-Mer on the Med.
The western end is lusciously green, the middle austere and rocky, but as the Mediterranean approaches, dry garrigue and blue skies take over. The walk visits all the well-known sights of the range – the Lac de Gaube, the Lac d'Ôo, the Cirque de Gavarnie – and nestles up to some of its highest mountains.
Beau Vallon is located in Sahorre, just 1.1km from the GR10, 4km from the famous Spa town of Vernet-les-Bain. Our "Pit Stop" budget accomodation is perfect for those looking to recharge their batteries, both phyically and mentally! before setting off on the last (or first depending on your route) leg of the walk from Vernet-les-Bains to Banyuls.
