The nearby Lascaux Li complex of painted caves is always worth taking a detour to see. Though they are replicas of caves in the department of Dordogne which have paintings dated over 17,000 years old, these enchanting caves were added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites in 1979. Visitors always remark how amazing the Hall of Bulls is in particular. Also not far from Viella is the town of Lourdes which some visitors have simply called a life-changing experience. The spectacular scenery there and the magnificent castle also warrant special mention. Only a few kilometres away are the picturesque towns of Maubourget and Pau. These boast magnificent ancient architecture as well as dozens of places to shop. The cafes and restaurants there will serve you coffee and warm baguettes among other typical French repasts.

It looked very good in the photographs but so beautiful in real life. Staying there was a very nice experience, with great accommodation and facilities available within. We loved the log fire in the evenings. The views were stunning at the property and we all had a very relaxing holiday. The main purpose for our visit was for the skiing at nearby La Mongie and Tourmalet, where we were not let down by the weather and were skiing in glorious sunshine. (Got sunburned, so remember to put on your sun-cream when up the mountains !) Our daughter and boyfriend loved the local walks. Many thanks, Martin & Lorraine, for the privilege of staying there and we will return again, hopefully, next season. Please feel free to print this and put it in your guest book, as we forgot to do so, sorry! Will be in touch. Mac, Christine, Katie and Toby, Potters Bar, Hertfordshire. March, 2017.
