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.

The capital of Hautes-Pyrenees, Tarbes, is home to almost half of the population of Hautes-Pyrenees. It is a delightful market town, which provides a selling point for all the best local produce, which makes experimenting with local food in your private property in Hautes-Pyrenees a genuine pleasure.

Lourdes is a famous site for pilgrims from around the world, seeking to experience the site where a young girl named Bernadette saw visions of the Virgin Mary, and searching for miracle cures.

A magnificent centre for walking, climbing and mountaineering, Cauterets borders the Parc National des Pyrenees, and taking a Hautes-Pyrenees holiday rental here has the added advantage of allowing you to relax in the famous spa facilities after a hard day in the hills. Other historical spa towns are picturesque Bagneres-de-Bigorre and Capvern-les-Bains.

Arrens-Marsous is a stunning little town in a ‘U’ shaped valley, which turns into the largest cross-country skiing resort in the Pyrenees, and also offers dog sledding and plenty of outdoor activities.

Maubourguet is a staggeringly charming market town with strong Basque culture, and with one of the most delightful markets in the whole of France. Like near-by Tarbes, the town has a hugely strong equine heritage, and there is no better way to discover the region than from the saddle.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      I was amazed that this property could be both so very secluded but also within a short walking distance of the centre of French life, Les Halles, the market. Also close by was the Tourist Office, very helpful in giving advice. Also, there was a mini supermarket which certainly stocked enough goods for all basic needs. I do recommend Les Halles for buying all manner of things, obviously bread, cheese, ham, also made dishes, I loved the Ratatouille. There was also a big outdoors market one day for produce from the area; I bought white asparagus, salad stuff, pork rillettes and some lovely Apricot jam. Some of these stalls were quite large, others small, I noticed that some elderly ladies were selling a few items, some homemade jam and a few vegetables or eggs. A very vibrant atmosphere, it was a 'catch up' and allowed everyone to talk about the past weeks' events. As everywhere, tremendous friendliness towards me and my friend- something to be remembered. For many, the importance of Lourdes is for the shrine to The Virgin. Very easy to get to there by foot or on a bus. The bus, from memory, S5, is a circular one about 6minutes from the house. It goes to the Basilica. The roads near the shrine are full of shops selling typical tourist things relating to Lourdes. Having said that Incame across a very interesting shop that sold fossils and I purchased an Ammonite as my souvenir. I also took bus to SNCF Gare to take localbus to Cauterets - check times - , terrific journey towards foothills of Pyrenees; two people selling their wares, bought more cheese, olives, pork and duck pate. Had a pleasant meal and returned. Cauterets very much a ski resort but worth a visit. Took train from SNCF Lourdes to Pau, a University town also very historic as Henri fourth of Navarre had palace there, also for those interested in history, Bernadotte, who founded the line of the present Swedish Royal family was born there. Back to the house; a beautifully presented property with a delightful garden, long and private because of position and the trees. Lovely to sit outside and enjoy a coffee or glass of wine. I would certainly wish to return again; a word of advice, make sure you understand the two controls for the TV, not complicated but I wasn't used to dual control. I know that M Desmales will ensure that a few basics are left if someone is arriving late. A very enjoyable seven days, a part of France I had not visited before; delightful in every way.
