Congratulations on choosing Cauterets!!
Welcome to my listing. Cauterets is a lovely, quaint resort in a great location for winter skiing and snowboarding, with a new beginners' area and a freestyle park for the more advanced. Good range of ski runs, also has Pont d'Espagne nearby for those who prefer ski de fond. It is also just 40 mins' drive from the neighbouring ski resort of Bareges/La Mongie by car.
Speaking fluent French and knowing many local people there, I will be happy to help you arrange your ski lessons, ski hire (with discounts) and anything else you need in advance. I'm happy to advise on bars & restaurants and local places of interest. I am also in the process of coordinating a taxi sharing project with other local property owners so will try to fit you in with another family or small group where possible if you need a taxi transfer from the airport.
Cauterets is also fabulous for summer activities including hiking, walking, trekking, mountain, rafting, caving and potholing. Beautiful scenery within minutes, at Pont D'Espagne, and within 30-60 minutes' drive to neighbouring areas. Early booking discounts available now.
Biarritz, on the Atlantic Coast is within 90 minutes' drive, Toulouse is 2 hours and the Mediterranean 3 hours.

The Midi-Pyrenees region
Stunning scenery and loads of activities, from pleasant walks to tough hiking expeditions, skiing and snowboarding in winter, mountain biking, rafting and numerous other mountain sports in summer.
A very 'French' area, with great local food and friendly atmosphere, not too busy on the roads (or on the pistes) - the area offers several ski domains and a purpose built mountain biking area with varying degrees of difficulty.
Cauterets is a friendly, lively place, tucked neatly away up in the rugged mountainous area just south of Lourdes. Its ski domain is unique in that it sits nicely in a glacial corrie, a parabolic bowl meaning all runs lead back to the one restaurant. This means it's almost impossible to get lost, and meeting up with family and friends for lunch or at the end of the day after perhaps skiing separately is easily achieved.
The town boasts several bars and a casino, though these are certainly not raucous or very late night affairs, but rather at the more civilized end of the market, suitable for the discerning customer.
Restaurants are numerous and of superb quality, I would be happy to send you in the direction of several of the best. All are friendly and have excellent service.
Overall - a beautiful, quaint, charming town with plenty going on both in summer and winter.
