Things to do on holiday to Viella, France

Those looking to really unwind and spend their vacation strolling or biking through beautiful countryside have got to seriously consider Viella as their choice destination. Holidaymakers also have the chance to survey the grandeur of the Pyrenees Mountains while sipping their beverage of choice in some of the local cafes and bars. At a few of these joints they can also enjoy live jazz music. The place is scenic from virtually any location; truly an avid photographer’s paradise. Anyone interested in taking a tour of the nearby vineyards to see the plantations and taste the finished product is welcome to do so. Those who plan to spend New Year’s Eve in this part of France will be in time for the annual New Year’s Eve Grape Picking. This once-in-a-lifetime experience includes plucking over-ripe grape fruit at midnight by torch-light and making mulled wine from them, which visitors of course get to savour. For those who must have some activity as part of their holiday there are public pools in which they can swim and tennis courts.

Places to visit on holiday to Viella, France

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.

This region has rather cool weather throughout the year and even in July, its warmest month, temperatures hardly go past 10°C. Travellers who venture to Viella during winter need to grab everything they can lay their hands on in terms of warm clothing as it can get as cold as -10°C. Rain can mostly be expected during winter with most of the recorded rainfall happening between October and March.

Travel to Viella, France

Most visitors will jet into any one of Paris’ three international airports; Orly Fields, Charles De Gaulle or Beauvais-Tille and connect to the Pau-Pyrenees Airport from there when travelling to Viella. However, there are airliners with direct flights to the Pau-Pyrenees Airport from selected European cities such as Amsterdam, London and Dublin. This airport has offices for major car hire companies such as Avis, Hertz and Europcar so visitors can easily get a vehicle to get to their accommodation.

The house continues to meet all our needs, including plenty of bike storage. It is well maintained and equipped and has plenty of local maps and guidebooks to explore the local area. The owner is very helpful and provides excellent advice and customer service.This is a great location for cyclists and walkers and anyone who loves the Mountains. The house is situated at the bottom of the Tourmalet and is so close to many other iconic Tour de France Climbs. There is plenty to do for all the family. We will be return again soon!

The apartment was very well equipped, warm and comfortable and has great views of the Pyrenees. It also has wifi that was good enough to do some very heavy duty design and publishing work that I had actually arranged to return to London early to complete. Comfortable chairs and good lighting meant evenings in front of the telly (including a BBC channel) were possible. Barges is quite unusual for a ski resort in that it is a "real” village – complete with a school, several bars, a few restaurants and a well-stocked supermarket. It is just a few minutes' drive or (free) bus ride from the ski slopes. The bus stops outside the Helios. Good walks are said to start within a few metres. Barges is part of “Grand Tourmalet” the largest French Pyrenean ski area and we had large amounts of great snow and saw loads of runs from easy to expert and heard about, but did not try, a long off-piste run from the nearby attraction of the Pic du Midi observatory – doable only with a qualified guide, I believe. Self-catering is a great option in Bareges because we discovered that its excellent butcher, a few metres away from the Helios, specialises in the only appellation controllé lamb in Europe – bred, raised and slaughtered in the area, it's a revelation for carnivores. The apartment had a full complement of cooking equipment and a good micro/oven to enjoy our purchases. Village restaurants were also good. Try the Isba for traditional French catering and Le Hotel Central for upmarket and modern cuisine. You should not miss Les Thermes, the village’s recently modernised spa – apparently they were built by Napoleon for wounded veterans of La Grande Armée because the local hot springs are reputed to be particularly efficacious for gunshot wounds. Today you can get a mud bath or a massage; a bain hydroxeur – available in a room for two (or solo) – is good fun – a super-strength jacuzzi. Local bars are full of character(s), including, on our trip, French soldiers learning to ski whose politeness and good manners were a revelation to a couple of Brits. The owners Pete and Jude are extremely knowledgeable and very helpful and keep the apartment spotless. It was as described in their materials. We would certainly recommend this apartment. One note of caution: The pre-book-only shuttle bus from Lourdes airport to Bareges seems a great idea, but it is obviously having teething problems, so make sure you have a print-out of your online
