In July and August, using a comb-like collector, the team harvest tiny bilberries from the low growing shrubs around the refuge. These may then be transformed into a mouth-watering 'tarte aux myrtilles' for the evening meal’s dessert. Just divine when accompanied by some home made ice cream or sorbet. After a strenuous hike and an ascent of one of the surrounding peaks on a hot summer’s day, you’re sure to appreciate a glass of refreshing wild mint or lemon verbena cordial, or a scoop of acacia, wild thyme, wild liquorice or bilberry sorbet. Simply delicious! Gourmet mountain fayre is the name of the game at this exceptional lakeside mountain hideaway. Combined with the outstanding hospitality of Anoura and his team you have the recipe for an unforgettable stay which is sure to be the highlight of your hiking trip to the central Pyrenees
