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.

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.

The house has all the facilities necessary for a comfortable stay and a lovely garden too. The owner was very helpful and attentive. We would definitely stay again!

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      Just back from a week-long family holiday - lots of great walks from the doorstep, a really beautiful part of the pyrenees and a lovely peaceful setting. The children loved the nearby Aya Parc Acrobatique, we all enjoyed a dip in one of the mountain lakes and Bagneres has lots of old-world charm. On our arrival we were met by Emma at a local jam boutique - she then guided us to the cottage, which was really helpful as it is wonderfully tucked away. Just enough wifi to keep the teenagers happy and the kitchen was very well equipped. All in all, this is a place we've tagged as somewhere that it would be lovely to come back too - ideally for longer, as we barely made a dent in the very exhaustive book of walks the owners provided. Highly recommended
