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.

The house was perfect and proved to be an ideal base for searching out the best snow. The house has been equipped using quality furniture including wonderfully comfortable beds and whilst spacious still managed to feel cosy and familiar. Snow was in short supply generally during our stay but we managed to find excellent skiing for all abilities at both Luz Ardiden and Gavarnie. The house is wonderfully positioned just a few minutes amble away from the town centre which gives a chance to enjoy the pretty backstreets of Luz Saint Sauveur. The house exceeded our expectations and we would not hesitate to stay there again.

The house continues to meet all our needs, including plenty of bike storage. It is well maintained and equipped and has plenty of local maps and guidebooks to explore the local area. The owner is very helpful and provides excellent advice and customer service.This is a great location for cyclists and walkers and anyone who loves the Mountains. The house is situated at the bottom of the Tourmalet and is so close to many other iconic Tour de France Climbs. There is plenty to do for all the family. We will be return again soon!
