Our house is set within a beautiful mountain valley in the French Pyrenees. We are handy for all of the main tourist sites of the region eg Gavarnie, the Pont d'Espagne, Lourdes. There are walking paths, cycling routes (including several Tour de France climbs), waterfalls, winter sports, beautiful mountain passes. You’ll love our place because of the views, the location, the ambiance, and the people. It is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).
The valley of Argeles-Gazost (also known as the "vallee des gaves") is one of the most beautiful and touristic valleys of the French Pyrenees. The small town of Argeles-Gazost has a lot going on in the summer season. There is something for everyone - lovely architecture in the small villages, amazing local products on the weekly markets, unspoilt scenery, lots of outdoor activities, nice cities to visit - Tarbes , Pau, the Pic de Midi observatory etc etc.
Public transport options - train to Lourdes then bus to Argeles -Gazost. No buses to Saint Pastous. For international travellers, Lourdes/ Tarbes airport has regular flights from Paris, London Stanstead (Ryanair) and other cities. The airport of Toulouse is 2 hours away, Pau 1 hour, Biarritz 2 hours.
Although there are buses, including a low cost shuttle from the airport to the ski-resorts, it is difficult to visit everywhere by public transport, hitch-hiking is widely practised in the area.
