Winter Pyrénées

Skiing in the Pyrenees.

A unique destination for winter sports.
When you think of winter sports, at first you would not think easily about a destination that lies against Spain, but rather about countries like Austria, Germany or Switzerland.

Yet there are some beautiful ski resorts in the Pyrenees, as it were, between the historic French city of Pau, and the beaches on the Atlantic coast near Biarritz.

The city of Pau is therefore actually the capital of the winter sports region, especially since the airport is here. From Pau, you are already in less than an hour, on the slopes, and the city also lends itself very well as a residence during the winter holiday.

The city has several good hotels and other accommodations, many attractions, and is just a nice destination, where you'll have certainly lots of fun.
