Activities

Whatever the season, you can enjoy a huge variety of activities in this part of the Pyrenees: cycling, skiing, hiking, paragliding, rafting, climbing, golf, tennis, stargazing and many more.

There are excellent walking opportunities for all levels, some lovely walks can be done straight from our house. Our land is bordered by the Canal de la Nère, we have a gate that leads onto the footpath that runs along the canal, it is a wonderful walk where the canal meanders through meadows, fields and forests, it would also be ideal if you fancy a morning jog.
The Tour de France makes its way through the Pyrenees every year, so why not join us on the bike and follow in the footsteps of the tour heroes to tackle some of the great Cols around here.

In addition to some of the best cycling available in Europe there is so much more to do and see in our area.

In winter you can choose from several ski resorts for skiing, snow boarding or snow shoeing, the closest is about a 40 minute drive, Boutx Le Mourtis.

1 hour from here is Bagnères de Luchon, the locals call it La Reine des Pyrénees, the queen of the Pyrenees! It has been a well known spa town for centuries, famous for its Thermal springs, first discovered by the Romans, and elegant town houses. It has its own ski resort, Superbagneres, which in winter is connected to the town via a cable car, but is worth driving up to outside the skiing season for the fantastic views from the top and hikes that start from there. The road to Superbagneres is also a great cycling climb.
