Car: recommended

The Cottage, Grange & Studio apartment are set in the delightful town of Bagneres de Bigorre. A bustling spa town in the Haute-Pyrenees ideally placed for skiing at La Mongie and Payolle, visiting the Pyrenean National Park, Cirque du Gavarnie and Pic du Midi. Close to the sanctuary at Lourdes and easy drive of Pau and Toulouse. Visit Biarritz, Carcassone and Spain for days further afield. Watch the Tour de France which passes near by each year or cycle the cols yourself. There are many walks close by including the GR10 and the route of St Jacques de Compostelle passing close to our property. For golfers there is a 18 hole golf course with panoramic views of the Pyrenees is 2 km away with another 2 golf courses within easy reach. Other activities include canoeing, parapente, horse riding, mountain biking. If you prefer to relax there are the wonderful thermal spa baths in town and many good restaurants to try the wonderful regional dishes. Flights to Lourdes for the ski season.

Other Activities: Canoeing, parapente, cross country skiing, casino.

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. With 2 ski schools and most pistes easily accessed by chair lifts or teleski, it is a family orientated resort with ample restaurants and bars. The access road is good but snow chains or 4x4 are needed after heavy snowfall. A daily bus from Bagneres takes you to the resort & is free during French school holidays. Other ski resorts are within easy reach by car. Ski hire is available locally and we can store ski equipment. Why not try cross-country skiing or snow walking in the beautiful area of Payolle where you will find numerous tracks in pretty forests. This area is also great for watching the kids sledge from a warm bar. Also try dog sled rides or motoneige rides. Saturday flights from Stanstead to Lourdes in winter.
