    i'm traveling across the Pyrenees in June/ july and looking for places to stay over night, about 3 stops in total then onto the cost in North Spain where i'll be staying for a few days before heading up into the West Alps

    So chaps could you recommend places for me and my girlfriend to stay over night that not to over the top on price,:evil
    ideal would be:
    in good locations
    safe place to park bikes up
    a swimming pool:lol3
    and nice friendly people

    not too much to ask is it ?

    had a wonderful time , stayed in some great places , cost range PPPN 20-50 euros,
    I'll do a wright up later this year so help bore people to deaf or help pass away a winters night, but here are a few great roads
    if you travel from north spain across the Prynees and over and up the Alps
    just out side Santander, take the road from :
    Solares to Arredondo ,then head south for about 10 miles then east.
    North east of Pamplonal is the N135, just south of a small village called Auritz take the road threw garralda across to Escaroz,
    and on the east side take the B402 from Bergueda to Ripoll.. see if you can find a stright part in the first 26 miles..:D

    but loads more roads across the Prynees . but in genral stay high in the hills on the spainish side

    Nice pics but you're better off doing the ride report now while it's fresh in your memory.
