    Big hello from SW France, I live about 60 km due north of Pic du Midi de Bigorre in the Pyrenees which I can see from my kitchen window when I'm having my morning cuppa. I do maybe 30 miles a week of short and day hikes and live for the summer when I can get up into the mountains for my annual fix of solo stage hiking. Just completed Barèges to Mérens les Vals on the GR10 in August.

    That's what I was thinking, French food and mountains - bliss.

    I came down at Auzat and went to Marseille for 10 days. A week of Language school and hanging around the Calanques. I didn’t yet get to merens. Welcome here for lots of good tips.

    Thanks! I was blessed with decent weather for the last few days, the stage between Refuge de Ruhle and Mérens was spectacular, you're in for a treat if you come back next year x
