- An hour's drive from Lourdes, Pic du Jer walks and mountain zoo
- Pool and communal kitchen/chill-out room; bike hire and barbecue loan
Hop over to this spot in the fab countryside of south-west France: Frog Lake Yurts is beside the Gers river, about 10 minutes' drive from the town of Castelnau-Magnoac, in the Midi-Pyrénées region.
All yurts are south-facing, so you get maximum views of the sunsets and sunrises over the mountains and warm bright days in between. The interiors are cool in summer, cosy in winter (with woodburners), kitted out with double bed and sofa bed, tables and chairs and somewhere to hang your hats. There's a coolbox keeping your perishables fresh and a point for charging devices, and you can borrow barbecues from the friendly Frog Lake folks for alfresco feasts. If you book ahead, they'll also whistle up breakfasts and some evening meals.
An open barn serves as communal chillout zone, with games and books and a fully-equipped kitchen with fridge and oven. Also on the site is a seriously tempting swimming pool, with views across the valley.
Amenities include a solar-heated shower by the pool and two more in cubicles; keeping kind to the beautiful environment, there's a compost toilet near the yurts and one flushing toilet.
Want the inside track on local walking and cycling trails? Just ask the team: they're happy to share their knowledge and they've got a pair of hybrid bikes for hire.

The reservoir at Magnoac 10 minutes' drive away is a quick intro to some of the area's splendid sights: hike or bike your way round the water and through the wetlands nature reserve, perhaps stopping off to catch a fish or two... There's a good spread of shops, supermarkets and restaurants in town and if you're feeling daring, skydiving trips take off from the aerodrome.
It's an hour's drive to the pilgrim city of Lourdes; just outside, Parc Animalier des Pyrénées is home to an ark load of rare mountain beasts, and an old funicular railway takes you up the Pic du Jer for walks and tiptop views.
An hour and a half away, Hautacam ski resort becomes a multi-thrill leisure base in summer, with a mountain luge, off-road go-karts, electric bikes and Segways. You could make like a Tour de France competitor and cycle to the top; it's a regular part of the Tour route as is the Col du Tourmalet nearby.
It's a similar distance to the cable car to the heights of the Pic du Midi de Bigorre, a dazzling ride ending in the sort of mountain lair Bond villains live in, housing a museum and meteorological station at the centre of a network of high mountain paths.
