Make a holiday rental home or property in Hautes-Pyrenees, France your home away from home

The Hautes-Pyrenees is a stunning, mountainous department in the south-west of France bordering Spain. Over two thirds of the department is dominated by the soaring peaks of the Pyrenees Mountains, and renting private property in Hautes-Pyrenees takes you to the heart of these peaks, where rural culture lives strongly and the natural landscape will not fail to inspire.

Things to do on holiday in Hautes-Pyrenees, France

The Parc National des Pyrenees stretches for over 100km along the national border, which protects a staggering number of plants and animals, high in the mountains, and as you can buy property in the outer ring of the park, it is very accessible for hiking and walking in breath taking and awe-inspiring scenery. UNESCO named the incredible Cirque de Gavarnie a World Heritage Site, and for good reason.

Skiing in the Hautes-Pyrenees region is particularly good for beginners and intermediate skiers and snowboarders. The huge Bareges-La-Mongie resort has 64 runs for skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing, and there is a maze of snowshoeing trails to be enjoyed. Tourmalet and St Lary Soulan are bustling resorts, offering real village charm and over 100km of piste.

It's a great size for 2 people, well equipped, clean and it just amazing surroundings. We used it as our base for hiking for 5 days and our starting points for the hikes were in easy reach. There are also plenty of places to buy regional products. It was super easy to communicate with Isabelle and although we never met her we felt welcomed and looked after by her friend Magalie. We would definitely recommend this place!!!

The dishwasher, washing machine/dryer were very welcome. There is free parking within easy walking distance and we never had a problem finding a space in August. Sheets are not provided but can be hired from the Agency Square Habitat (next door) who look after the apartment. Pillow Cases/towels are not available so do bring your own. Internet can also be arranged at an additional cost through the Agency. Restaurants,cafes/bars, supermarket, daily indoor food market, literally everything you need is a few steps away. Only French Channels available on T.V and as this is an older building there is no lift. Cauterets makes a perfect base for exploring this area - Cirques, Pic du Midi, Pont D'Espagne etc all easily reachable. We thought the apartment was good value for money and recommend it for a pleasant stay in Cauterets.
