Description

Bagnères-de-Bigorre is a charming old spa town in the Pyrénées. Long visited by the French, it sees few foreign visitors. Perhaps this is why the locals are so friendly!

Our apartment is in the heart of the old town yet is in a beautiful and peaceful location which includes a shared but private courtyard garden. It is on the first and second floors of an old converted hotel and is accessible via a spiral staircase.

On the first floor there is an open plan living room including a well-equipped kitchen. The living room opens onto a balcony which overlooks the courtyard. There is a separate utility room containing a washing machine and dryer. Stairs lead up from the living room to the three bedrooms (one double, two twins), the bathroom and the shower room (each of these has a WC). A fold up bed can be put up either in the larger of the twin rooms. So we can sleep up to 7 adults (or 8 if 2 or more are children).

If you bringing small kids there is a travel cot and high

Location description from owner

The Midi-Pyrénées region

Warm in summer and cold enough for skiing in winter, this is one of the most beautiful parts of France. Here are some of the activities that can be found in the region:

Skiing - La Mongie (Tourmalet), the largest downhill ski resort in the French Pyrénées is less than 30 minutes drive away from Bagnères-de-Bigorre. You will find fantastic skiing here, suitable for all levels. There are 69 pistes (one is floodlit) totalling 100 km of runs.

There are also snow cannons to ensure good snow and a snow park for 'boarders'. And if you’ve been an Alpine skier you will find the prices very attractive. During the ski season there is a bus service between Bagnères-de-Bigorre and the ski resort.

Other downhill ski resorts such as Cauterets, St Lary, Luz-St-Saveur and Peyragudes, are also not too far away.

Cross Country Skiing - can be found in the area as well. The closest resort is Payolle, where snow-shoe walking is also available. There are many other resorts, such as Val d'Azun (about 50 minutes drive away); these are also places worth visiting at any time of the year.

Cycling and Mountain Biking - The Tour de France often passes through the town and two of its most famous climbs are nearby: the Col de Tourmalet and the Col d'Aspen. Bring your bike or rent one and you, too, can try these out. There’s more gentle cycling for the less fanatical and mountain biking as well. Planetair65 in the town rents – and repairs – bikes. You can also hire fishing equipment, among other things, from them.

Golf - Not far from the town centre of Bagnères-de-Bigorre is an 18 hole golf course with panoramic mountain views. There is also mini-golf located in the town itself.

So much more…. Other sporting activities available in the area include paraponting, fishing, horse riding, rock climbing, tennis, white water rafting, canoeing, kayaking, walking and hiking.

Bagneres-de-Bigorre

Bagnères-de-Bigorre is a spa town and a visit to the thermal spa with roof top jacuzzis and sun deck is highly recommended.

Shopping - As well as supermarkets, there are all sorts of speciality shops in town. Or you can go further afield. Pau (60 kilometres away) and Tarbes (17 kilometres away) are both excellent places to visit and to shop. And if you’re in Bagnères-de-Bigorre on a Saturday you must meander down to the marvellous market.

Eating and Drinking - Well what can we say? This is France and Bagnères-de-Bigorre abounds with restaurants, great cafés and bars. There’s an excellent pizzeria with a very friendly owner just across the road from the apartment.
