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.

The children loved the nearby Aya Parc Acrobatique, we all enjoyed a dip in one of the mountain lakes and Bagneres has lots of old-world charm. On our arrival we were met by Emma at a local jam boutique - she then guided us to the cottage, which was really helpful as it is wonderfully tucked away. Just enough wifi to keep the teenagers happy and the kitchen was very well equipped. All in all, this is a place we've tagged as somewhere that it would be lovely to come back too - ideally for longer, as we barely made a dent in the very exhaustive book of walks the owners provided. Highly recommended

Arreau is a lovely town with plenty of places to sit and have a drink. It all felt very French with hardly a British car or accent to be found
