A small family agency in the heart of the Pyrenees
At the origin of the project, I also convinced Jean, my brother, to follow me !Respyrénées is leaving for a ninth season in 2024! And the team continues to grow!
A close-knit and dynamic team ready to listen to you, advise you and above all allow you to escape through hiking.
Specialized in particular on the GR 10 and in the Basque Country, come and discover all our stays through the Pyrenees and do not hesitate to submit your projects to us for a tailor-made stay!
After 10 years working for the agency Tour Aventure, then managing the Hotel La Grande Cordée, I decided to wear again my mountain boots, take my rucksack, and spend a 100% of my time creating and organizing tours in the Pyrenees ! Thanks to the experiences I had in Tour Aventure and La Grande Cordée, also thanks to the knowledge of the area, I wish to provide you quality services, but also advice and help if you need. Don't hesitate to contact me in any way, and for anything you would need.
Arrived in 2019, in the Respyrénées team, I discover with pleasure the work of guys fond of wilderness, mountain and hike. It's a good thing, nature and hiking I love it!
So i hope i can share with you my passion of nature, my enthusiasm and my good mood for the purpose to support you as best as possible for your journey in our beautiful Pyrenees!
Installed as a fishing guide and Mountain Leader in the heart of the Bask country, in Saint Jean Pied de Port. You will no doubt meet me during the tours we organize in this wonderful Bask country!!
After taking my first steps with the Respyrénées team in 2019, I continue the adventure alongside lovers of the Pyrenees. Passionate about the great mountain air and a wanderer at heart, our paths could cross in any corner of the Pyrenees!"
After taking part in the 2016 season and the launch of Respyrénées, I am back in 2018 for my greatest pleasure. Passionate and in love with these beautiful Pyrenees, I had the opportunity to go through them many times. I hope to be able to help you in your choice of stay and make sure that it goes well.
I will therefore be happy to help you discover everything that makes our beautiful country!
Having joined the metropolis for more than 25 years, this passion has not died out but on the contrary, it has been fueled! The French mountainous regions and other more distant lands are these "corners" where I love to stroll, enjoy, discover...
But it's in the Pyrenees and the Basque Country that I spend most of my time there. Moving forward in life, the desire and the need to make it my job and especially to share this passion is felt more and more! I'm taking the plunge and it's been done since 2018!
I am among the last to join the "Respyrénées" team, but like all my comrades, I will be able to share with you this love for this magnificent region that is the Pyrenees as a whole. So see you soon, for a little tropical touch to all this!!
A native of Pau, yet with the Pyrenees “in the background”, it was only later (around 20 years old!) that I really discovered them through animation; So I lived there, I felt good, very good even and I wanted it to continue: it's been going on for 30 years!
And I have since made it my job: first with children of course, but today I also support adults.
Even if the Ossau valley remains my favorite playground, I do not disdain, on occasion, personally or professionally, to go and see elsewhere, other valleys, other mountains, other countries, other people, other encounters…
See you soon on the trails of the Basque Country.
Passionate about travel, I went to see if the grass was greener elsewhere; but the sweetness of life à la basquaise has always brought me back here!
It is with pleasure that I will share with you the beauty of the landscapes of our dear country.
Later, following a setback, he abandoned the summits to train in Architecture. But very quickly the lack of space made him return to the heights. He spent 20 years traveling in the mountains of the world: Rockies, Canada, Alaska, New Zealand, Ladakh, India, Nepal, Tasmania, Norway, Scotland...
Today he put his bag in the Pyrenees. He found in this place wild, authentic mountains, with soothing ridge lines... A preserved population and culture.
And if you definitely want to put it in your pocket, tell him about the great explorers, he will have a little brighter eye than usual.

Having always lived in the Basque Country, my gaze and soon my backpack were quickly drawn to the Pyrenean peaks. The joy and emotions that the mountains provide are unique. In this quest, I will accompany you with simplicity and good humor.
