Rock climber's paradise...on the doorstep of the quintessential Calames crags... not to mention a host of other great climbing areas, as well as historical sites. Deborah and Jon are wonderfully welcoming. The accommodation is clean and comfortable...the location is beautiful. We will always think very fondly of our stay at Base Calames.

There was 10 in our party, the Gite accommodated us easily it was fully equipped and very comfortable. The walking was fantastic and we could walk from the house without having to take our cars all the time. The church bells were infuriating chiming all through the night although it did not spoil our wonderful holiday. Deborah and John our...

If you want to ride in the mountains then this is the ideal location. The gite is located on the Col de Port, which is a famous Tour de France climb and its close to many other great mountain climbs. The scenery is amazing and whether it's a training camp or a gentle tour I would recommend this location. Just...

Lovely remote spot - great for rock climbers, cavers and walkers. Need to be a confident driver as roads very narrow (and no public transport?) and church bell rings all night but otherwise 100% plus. A great stay with the owners providing every bit of information about the area you could possibly need as well as loaning books, maps etc.

My boyfriend and i stayed in this gite last August (this is a long overdue review!). We highly recommend it! It was a really comfortable house that couldn't be closer to the rock and Deb and Jon were so accommodating, always happy to answer questions & help out. Great breakfast in the morning too! We would definitely return!

I've stayed here a couple of times and haven't been disappointed yet. The gite is only a 20 minute walk-in to the main routes at Calames and so is ideal for any rock climbing holiday. It's also within a 30 minute drive of a number of excellent crags in the area, as well as very close to the local supermarkets...

Super place to stay, 8 of us in a place that can take 12. Well equipped kitchen,big lounge area, DVD player. Hosts live across the courtyard and are super nice. We took the breakfast option and cooked for ourselves at night ,mostly. If climbing the nearest (huge) crag is a short walk away. Part time bar /restaurant in the village...

We have just returned from a week at Base Calames. The main objective of our holiday was rock climbing, but the area is also good for walking. Jon and Deborah were excellent hosts, who are knowledgeable about the area and were able to help with local information. For climbers, the gite is about 20 to 30 mins walk to the...

Spent a week in the fabulous Ariege region climbing at various locations. Base Calames was in a perfect position. Excellent climbing at Calames literally on the doorstep - it is closer to the crag than the parking for the crag!! The accommodation was ideal. Very comfortable and well equipped. Jon and Debs looked after us very well. I would have...
