Description

Nestled in the small and unspoilt picturesque village of Barèges is Harrsica: a spacious four bedroom self-catering apartment that comfortably accommodates 8 guests.

In the winter, Barèges (alt. 1250m) is linked with the resort of La Mongie to create ‘Le Doumaine de Tourmalet’ the largest, and widely regarded to be the best, ski location in the French Pyrenees.

However, Barèges is not just the perfect winter ski treat – summer, spring and autumn each have their own virtues too. Cyclists and walkers love this spot but there are many more activities besides. Located on the edge of the Pyrenees National Park and close to the famous pilgrimage town of Lourdes the area has plenty to offer all year round.

We have put together a list of these activities on our website with links so that you can plan in advance and create either a mountain adventure week or a relaxation treat. There are things for young families, active families, thrill

We have put together a list of these activities on our website with links so that you can plan in advance and create either a mountain adventure week or a relaxation treat. There are things for young families, active families, thrill seekers and those that just want the mountain air, interesting places and a spa!

For Skiing:

The ideal location is irrefutable - throughout most of the ski season it is possible to ski back down to the village and for those with wearier legs the ski-bus stops directly opposite, making it perfect for all ages and abilities. It is cheaper than the Alps but no less charming, with plenty of runs to keep everyone busy. It is ideal for families and groups of mixed abilities.

For Cyclists:

Most spectacularly, it is located on the prestigious Tour de France route and the balcony of Harrsica provides a unique vantage point from which to watch all the action go by. From Luz there are three further fantastic Pyrenees cycling routes: Climb South to the incredible "Cirque de Gavarnie" at the Spanish frontier; West on the Luz-Ardiden ski road past lovely stone villages and ancient watermills; or descend North through the narrow Pierrefitte gorge beside the roaring "Gave de Pau" river. On top of that, there are 450km of mountain bike trails on the doorstep, of varying length and technical difficulty.

For Walkers:

The area is a walker’s paradise with an endless selection of marked and unmarked routes waiting to be explored. You can take a stroll and a picnic with the family, or experienced hikers can challenge themselves with a walk into Spain. Whatever route is chosen there is fantastic scenery along the way and a rich and unusual array of birds, animals and plants. A notable highlight is the world famous Pic de Midi Observatory with superb mountain views, situated at a mesmerising 2877m, and accessible by cable car.

Other Activities:

For those who have energy to burn or children to tire there is plenty on offer in and around the village, including paragliding, walking, cycling, canyoning/caving, mountain climbing, mountain biking and more. Barèges also boasts an outdoor heated swimming pool (open July & August), a climbing wall, a squash court, a cinema, a number of children’s play areas and a multi-purpose astro-turf court. Other activities only a short car ride away include white water rafting, horse riding, trout fishing, golf and an acrobatic “Tarzan” park. There is truly something for everyone with animal parks, zoos, aquariums and wonderful lakes for picnics.

For Relaxation:

If sampling the before mentioned activities, or just reading about them, leaves you in need for some relaxation - fear not, Barèges also has this covered. The village itself has two Thermal Spas, one of which is newly refurbished and just five minutes from Harrsica. The local butcher and baker also make famous French style dining achievable and the nearby mini-mart makes self-catering a breeze, but for those who want to place the cooking into someone else’s hands there is also a selection of bars and restaurants specialising in local cuisine available.
