About the neighbourhood
The French Pyrenees is the last remaining wilderness in southern Europe that is as well known for its stunning mountain scenery and beautiful countryside as it is for its distinctive Basque influenced cuisine. The beautiful location of Salles Argeles puts the very best of the Pyrenees at your fingertips. Nestled in the mountains amongst rolling cornfields, the village is home to Le Belvedere. Offering authentic French style, family accommodation in Vallée d'Argelès-Gazost, LeBelvedere is the perfect location from which to experience the best that Haute Pyrenees has to offer including canyoning, hiking, cycling, skiing, exploring the area’s history, a family reunion, a wedding party or or a pilgrimage to the historic location of Lourdes.
Getting around
A traditional Pyrenean mountain village. - Le Belvedere is a significant part of the heritage of the 11th century village of Salles. At the heart of village is the monastry which is still in use today, and aside from the few new residences, much of the village has remained unchanged for centuries. Like many of the Pyrenean mountain villages, Salles is linked to nearby villages via a network of walk trails that cut through forests, crop fields and streams and date back hundreds of years... well worth exploring.
