Make a holiday cottage in Cadeac your home away from home

Cadeac nestles in the South West of France in an area known as the Hautes-Pyrenees. The location is beautiful, and holiday cottages in Cadeac are within easy travelling distance of some outstanding historical sites. The good selection of cottages and apartments means there will always be somewhere special to stay. Cedeac has a church, a watchtower and the Chapelle de Pene-Taillade so if you don’t want to drive there are things to do on the doorstep. All are ideal to visit before returning to your holiday cottage in Cadeac.

Things to do in Cadeac

-Arreau is a village set in the Pyrenees and has some amazing scenery. It is surrounded by woods and has a wonderful river to walk along plus historical buildings to visit. Very importantly is easy to reach from most holiday homes in Cadeac. The Mairie - market hall was built in the 1930’s although is on the site of the 16th Century one and has many outstanding features.

-Saint-Bertrand-de-Comminges is an outstandingly beautiful village. Overlooked by foothills, it is built on the ground where the Roman City Lugdunum once stood. The main reasons to visit are the cathedral, the medieval ramparts and the many other surviving 15th Century buildings. For an insight into the past there is Olivetains where there are exhibitions held and the highlight of the display is an alter table dating back to the 6th Century. There is not much in the way of shops and eateries, but plenty for a day’s visit. After the cultural highlights, there are some beautiful views across the countryside before returning to Cadeac.

-White water rafting is incredibly popular and as such when wanting to participate on the River Garonne, bookings must be made in advance. It is not only for the very adventurous as there can be times when the river is not worryingly strong.

-The Pic du Midi de Bigorre is the place to go to see the true nature of the area. The mountain peak is used as a scientific observatory, is open to visitors and the views are worth the trip alone. Access is an exciting trip via cable cars. After the museum trip there is a restaurant serving local cuisine. Stay overnight to see the night sky where astronomers talk you through the night sky. It is important to book and also check in advance that the weather is good enough for the trip to take place. For the really adventurous the return journey can be made on skis or mountain bike.

-Lourdes has been a popular place to visit since Bernadette Soubirous dug water from the rock claiming that the Virgin Mary bade her do it. It is easy to reach from holiday cottages in Cadeac. There is plenty to see and plenty to buy. The shops are side by side with restaurants and guest houses and in places it is business as much as a religious destination. Although there is room for 60,000 or more in the churches - Basilique du Rosaire and the more recently built Underground Basilica Pius X – they often fill up. Be prepared to queue to enter the Grotte de Massabielle, then contrast the gaudy part with the touching scenes of the ill and hopeful being taken towards the water. Later, you can ride the Funicular up the Pic du Jer or visit some of the many museums.

Weather in Cadeac

There is a variable climate in Cadeac with the summer being hot and dry with average temperatures of 20.2°c, while winter is always cold averaging 6°c. It can experience over 2000 hours of sunshine per year and the weather is still pleasant throughout spring and autumn. A stay in a Cadeac holiday cottage will be comfortable and for the sun choose June to August while October to March will be cooler.

Travel to Cadeac

The closest airport is Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrénées Airport. It is about 26 miles away so it will be a good idea to hire a car. Ryanair flies into Lourdes from Stanstead Airport and during peak seasons Flybe fly from Southampton. Other options would be Eurostar to Paris and then fly to Lourdes airport, take a train to Lourdes or drive along the mountainous roads. Before long you will be settled in your holiday apartment or cottage in Cadeac.

Fabulous apartment, beautiful views.

5 of 5
We loved this place. It has a lovely spot on the mountainside overlooking Luz, so although it is a 15 minute walk to the town, it really is worth the trade-off. Gerard could not have been more helpful or friendly. We will be back.

A simply gorgeous property in a wonderful location

5 of 5
A family of 4 (with 11yr old twins) we stayed here in August 17, and had a wonderful week. The property is one of best we have ever stayed in - and we have been to France multiple times. It was extremely well equipped, comfortable and clean. The building it is attached to is just an old barn, so you have the place to yourself with very (almost no) passing traffic on the lane. It is incredibly peaceful - one of our requirements for a break - and for vast majority of the time all we could hear was the mountain stream. This was one our favourite things about the property. You could throw open the main bedroom windows at night and go to sleep listening to the rushing of the river, which was deeply relaxing and therapeutic. Like all new areas, you need to spend some time finding out the fun things to do, but by the end of the week we had explored and found lots to do (climbing zip wire places, lakes, caves, walks, spa etc). One of the most amazing features of the house, is the most comprehensive and detailed file of local/regional walks - which was so helpful and inspiring. If you are coming here for a walking holiday, this has to be the best house you could think of! And one of the wonderful things we recommend is tackling a big walk (e.g. Lac Bleu - just stunning and knackering) and then going to the nearby Spa - Aquensis, to sweat away the aches and pains). We will be back!
