Golf: The golf course at Bagneres de Bigorre has spectacular views of the Pyrenees and is 2 km from our property. The 18 hole course is open all year and was designed by Olivier Brizon in 1991. Hiring of all golf equipment is available and golf lessons can be booked. Fees start at 30 euros for 18 holes. Also nearby are 18 hole golf courses at Tarbes and Lanemazan making Bagneres the ideal location to play at all 3 courses.

Ski: La Mongie & Bareges, the largest ski resort in the French Pyrenees is 25 minutes away & suits all abilities whilst the more adventurous can ski off-piste from Pic du Midi. Some pistes run through beautiful forests whilst others have spectacular views of the Pyrenees.

  • 5 of 5

L'endroit est tres bien situé. Quelques minutes a pieds suffisent pour rejoindre les commerces de Bagnère de Bigorre et pourtant l'endroit est tres calme. On a l'impression d'être à la campagne! Les gites sont ravissants et très fonctionnels (nous avons eu la possibilité de tous les visiter grâce à la gentillesse du propriétaire!). Je conseille.

Deux semaines de tranquillité !

  • 4 of 5

Ce gîte est idéalement bien conçu pour deux personnes : très bien équipé et beaucoup de rangements. En plus la location est située dans un coin très calme et n'est qu'à 10 minutes à pied des commerces. La propriétaire est une personne charmante qui nous a fait découvrir la région et indiqué de superbes randonnées. A refaire!! Véro et Nicole
