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.

It is ideally located on the edge of Arreau and a perfect base for exploring the beautiful Pyrenees. Jacqueline provided a warm welcome and was keen to ensure we enjoyed our stay.

It looked very good in the photographs but so beautiful in real life. Staying there was a very nice experience, with great accommodation and facilities available within. We loved the log fire in the evenings. The views were stunning at the property and we all had a very relaxing holiday. The main purpose for our visit was for the skiing at nearby La Mongie and Tourmalet, where we were not let down by the weather and were skiing in glorious sunshine. (Got sunburned, so remember to put on your sun-cream when up the mountains !) Our daughter and boyfriend loved the local walks. Many thanks, Martin & Lorraine, for the privilege of staying there and we will return again, hopefully, next season. Please feel free to print this and put it in your guest book, as we forgot to do so, sorry! Will be in touch. Mac, Christine, Katie and Toby, Potters Bar, Hertfordshire. March, 2017.
