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

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.

The barn has great cooking facilities so we ate in every night. The neigbours are friendly (if you like donkeys, horses and deer). Col d'Aspin and the Tourmalet are nearby for cycyling enthusiasts and great walks with fantastic views. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would consider going back.

Peaceful, yet easy access for walking and cycling. Recommend the Aquensis Spa in Bagneres. Excellent customer service. Extremely well cleaned and maintained. Would recommend without hesitation.

The house was very clean when we arrived and Jacqueline and her family (the owners) were welcoming and friendly. The property is very spacious, well appointed, in a beautiful location and very convenient for the village of Arreau with its shops, bars and restaurants. Entertainment was also provided by the family’s pet goats – especially the two kids which were just two weeks old when we arrived! We rate this as a good place to stay and a very relaxing base from which to explore the Pyrenees around Saint Lary Soulan.
