Bielle is a commune of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department in southwestern France.

Bielle is a classic, picturesque farming village located in the floor of a narrow valley with steeply rising mountains as a dramatic backdrop. The buildings -primarily farm houses and barns- are built of stone. The farms are laid out in polygonic lots defined by stone walls and farm buildings. The farm building are solid, simple and spacious. Bielle gently ascends a hillside, offering memorable views in all directions. A stream, with many stone bridge crossings, cascades through the village. Sheep and cattle graze in the fields. This village is magic for landscape painters who enjoy a farm-village setting.
