Make a holiday apartment in Gedre your home away from home

Gedre is in the very south of France, just a short distance to the border with Spain. Some of the best areas of the Pyrenees in this area make Gedre holiday apartments a great choice. The selection of homes available through HomeAway means that you will have a fully self-contained base from which to explore no matter which one you choose. Whether you rent a holiday apartment in Gedre in summer or in winter, there are so many areas to explore here that you can’t fail to have a fabulous experience.

Things to do

The town of Gedre is much quieter than some of its nearby neighbours such as the town of Gavarnie. Outdoor pursuits are popular such as cycling, hiking, fishing and skiing. You will find many places where you can hire equipment to try these things out if you haven’t bought your own. A stay in a holiday apartment in Gedre can be as relaxing or as energetic as you want it to be.

-The Natural Reserve of Neouvielle includes beautiful mountain lakes. The scenery during the winter months is magnificent. The reserve is a paradise for walkers but if you just want to drive and sit to admire the picture painted by Mother Nature, then that’s cool too.

-Lourdes is on the list of essential places to visit. Lourdes has become a spiritual journey for many people to visit the place that the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared in the late 1800s. There is morning and evening mass, a procession that you can join in and pray the rosary and you should visit the Stations of the Cross. There is a movie-mercial at the information booth in town and you should visit this booth early on to get a list of the things that are planned for the day.

-The Old Town of Lourdes is worthy of a day trip on its own. Each morning there are markets selling fresh produce, oils, cheese and bread. Take the ‘Little Train’ for a small fee and enjoy a one hour tour around the town. You can get on and off this train as many times as you like and there are multiple stops. At some of these you will find museums to visit.

-The Pic du Jer funicular railway is a short, steep journey to an absolutely amazing view. If you need a reason to leave your Gedre holiday villa then this is it! When you reach the top, make the extra effort to walk the little way to the viewing platform where there are maps and telescopes to help you place all the little villages below.

-The Pyrenees is a stunning area great for cycling during summer and skiing during winter. Much of the Gedre holiday accommodation provides views of the ski slopes and mountain ranges and these can be a winter wonderland during the coldest months. You can hire equipment on site if you don’t want to bring your own.

The weather in Gedre

Spring comes early to Gedre and the summers are long and hot. Winter is when most of the rainfall happens in this area. The weather can warm up as early as February and it’s possible to still find snow on the mountains as late as May.

Getting to Gedre

Your closest airport, should you decide to fly to Gedre, is Lourdes Airport (around 44km distance). Toulouse Airport and Pau Airport are other options at 144km and 75km respectively. Lourdes is also the location of the nearest train station should you decide to take the Eurostar to Paris and then connect via train. Ferries dock at Calais where you could hire a car and you will most likely need an overnight stay on the drive to your Gedre holiday accommodation. The distance by car from Calais is just under 1200km.

Saturday, June 3, 2017 Good location

4 of 5
The house was in the perfect location for us as we wanted see all of the 3 main Cirques and Gedre stand at the end of the valleys to all three. We could also do good high level walking directly from the house. There are beautiful views down the valley from the front patio. The house is well equipped, but do not forget to take your own sheets, pillow cases and towels, as they are not provided. The house is stone built with very small windows, with the consequence that it is always dark and cold inside. We had to light the log burning stove in the evenings in June, even when the days were very hot. The owners were delightful and very helpful. They do not speak English, so it was a good job our understanding of French was pretty good. We enjoyed our stay very much and the evenings with the fire roaring and sitting under a blanket was very strange in June, but enjoyable and cosy.

Perfectly beautiful

5 of 5
We were very surprised to see how wonderful a property it was. 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.
