Holiday Rental House
“Bigourdane” - definition; a house in the Pyrenean style of the region of Bigorre. La Bigourdane is an elegantly spacious former Bishops Residence and has oodles of warmth and character in the classic ‘Bigourdane’ style dating from the 1600’s. The house is perfect for ‘laid-back’ house parties and special celebrations sleeping 8/10 people comfortably. The main reception room boasts an enormous ‘Monk’s’ table which can seat up to 12 people for your wine soaked clan gatherings. Comfy sofas, throws and candles set the scene in front of the magnificent fire place which houses the wood-burning stove which runs the central heating and is lovely for winter nights (wood, firelighters and matches are provided). TV, Xbox and DVD player are, of course, standard along with free wi-fi. For those ...“Bigourdane” - definition; a house in the Pyrenean style of the region of Bigorre.

About the neighbourhood
As well as an ideal location for fantastic family holidays we are ideally situated to provide accommodation in support of many outdoor pursuits including fell walking/hiking, tour cycling, mountain biking and skiing. Another attraction of Les Hauts Paturages is its location amidst a tranquil area of un-spoilt countryside. Nature lovers, bird-watchers and artists have all enjoyed the opportunity to get amongst the flora and fauna and see a wide variety of wild animals and birds. With a 10m swimming pool, badminton, table tennis and football it’s possible to have several days of your holiday just relaxing on site. A short distance away from our mountain there is more to see and do than can ever be done in one holiday!
Getting around
We are ideally placed at the head of the two main tourist valleys, on the edge of some of the most amazing National Parks. We have a fantastic spa 15 mins away at Bagneres-de-Bigorre which has a selection of supermarkets, independent shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. In the other directions 20 mins drive takes you into Lourdes where people come from all over the world to visit the Sanctuaries and take part in the nightly torchlight procession. We would suggest that the best way to get around is a car. That said for a weekend break we have a 9 seater land rover or our fully inclusive packages please contact us.
