The Midi-Pyrenees region
The Haute-Garonne department is one of the eight departments of the Midi-Pyrenees region in the south west of France and is home to both the bustling metropolis of Toulouse and a rural backdrop of undulating hills and valleys. It is a department of varied landscapes from lush plains to the soaring peaks of the Pyrenees and of history and great architecture including some of the towns classed amongst the most beautiful in France. Particularly sought after is the lovely spa town of Luchon with its attached ski resort.
In summer the Luchon valley is an accessible paradise for walkers, cyclists and climbers who come to enjoy the beautiful and unspoiled landscape. The walking and cycle route are also marked with hoof prints as the many stables in the region take guided horse rides up into the mountains for spectacular rides. In winter, the Pyrenees are blanketed in snow, and the walkers, bikers and climbers are replaced by skiers and walkers with raquettes (snow shoes) or families with sledges.
Bagneres de Luchon
Bagnères de Luchon is an ancient, elegant spa town and ski resort with grand houses and hotels testifying to its illustrious past when the who’s who of Europe descended to take the waters including Flaubert, Bismarck and Mata Hari. The spa was built in 1848 on the site of the old Roman baths. Today the waters are reputed to help rheumatism and ear, nose and throat problems. In spring, summer and autumn health seekers and holiday makers come to Luchon for the waters and mountains. In the winter it is the turn of the skiers and winter sports fans.
Known as “the Queen of the Pyrenees”, the centre of Luchon is a little slice of Paris. The busy, tree-lined, boulevard Allées d’Etigny, has rows of restaurants and street cafes, boulangèries and chocolateries with the accompanying enticing aromas of coffee, wine and food. The town is full of flowers, fountains and gardens and well equipped with shops; and you can buy pretty much anything you need in the town itself. Luchon also produces 30 million bottles per year of its own mineral water which has been classified since 1990 and is said to be particularly therapeutic and refreshing.
Luchon offers you the chance to enjoy a great days skiing at its ski station of Superbagnères, (accessed by cable car from the town centre or by car) followed by the ultimate indulgence of a relaxing spa treatment to ease those tired muscles. Other sports available in the area include paragliding, walking, golf, pony trekking and fishing. All surrounded by some of France's prettiest scenery and soaring snowy peaks making one of the most dramatic backdrops you could hope to find. Plus, of course, Spain is only 10 km down the road.
