Things to do

Genos is a tiny place of less than 200 inhabitants. It is nestled in foothills in the Louron Valley next to Lake Génos-Loudenvielle, in an area of stunningly scenic countryside. The charming valley is ideal in summer for enjoying outdoor pursuits and holiday homes in Genos are close enough to snowfields for winter sports holidays.

-The Sanctuaries Notre Dame de Lourdes is most likely the top place to visit during your holiday. This sacred site, visited by a multitude of pilgrims every year who travel there in the hopes to be miraculously healed by the Lourdes water, is only a short journey from Genos. The site covers 52 acres and as various sights to see. The Grotto of Massabielle contains the spring from which the sacred water comes. The Basilique Notre-Dame du Rosaire is also a must see with its Venetian mosaic decorations and paintings of saints and blessed people.

-The Pic du Midi de Bigorre is home to a scientific observatory and it has parts that are open to the public. Getting to this site is an adventure in itself. The only way to reach the observatory is by two cable cars. The cable car ride goes up the steep mountainside, over deep ravines, giving you absolutely fantastic views over the surrounding countryside. Once you reach the top you can wander at leisure around the observatory’s museum and take in the views.

-Skiing and snowboarding in this area is a popular pastime and a great reason to choose a Genos holiday chalet in winter. At a visit to La Mongie you will find approximately 100 kms of piste skiing. There are slopes for the beginner up to the experienced skier or snowboarder. Equipment can be hired and there are instructors available if you require teaching. As this is such a short distance from your rental holiday apartment it is sure to be a popular pastime.

-Golfing for some is more than just a pastime; it’s a passion. While holidaying in your rental apartment you don’t have to forgo your game of golf. Bagners de Bigorre golf course gives amazing mountain views as you go round the course.

-Ludic Park is a great way to spend the day if you have children with you on your holiday. The park has a number of giant inflatables, like a slide and obstacle course. There are trampolines and mini quad bikes to ride on a track. There are also pony rides available. The park provides a pleasant way to pass the afternoon.

Lovely, comfortable and spacious appartment.

Lovely newly refurbished appartment. Very well fitted out and everything worked perfectly - good strong, easily controllable shower. Very spacious and well decorated and furnished. The owner was so friendly, helpful and customer centred. I could not recommend this appartment highly enough.
