This loop passes through some lovely country but it's not for the faint hearted. You need to carry the bike up a few long sections on the first day, and the descent to hotel is very technical. The trail from the hotel that we took the following morning cannot be ridden. We had to push the bikes until the small church, but after that there are some excellent downhill sections and the climbs are not too bad.
The refuge that we stayed in does half board for 44 euros per night and the food was excellent. You need to be very fit to do this loop particularly as the lowest point is around 1300m
