the Villa Bon Repos
The Hotel Villa Bon Repos enjoys an exceptional setting and is an ideal base for exploring the area. This large house in the charming typical Bigourdan style, with wooden floors and stone walls, has been recently revamped. Rooms offer views of the mountains or overlook the pool and garden.
Relax in the heated pool (open during summer), surrounded by the flower-filled garden, or take things easy on the terrace with a drink or tasty homemade teatime snack.
Maryse, the owner, will be delighted to fill you in on all the must-sees and good addresses. She was born here (in this house !) and so knows the hidden secrets of the surrounding valleys like the back of her hand.
WHERE THREE VALLEYS MEET
At the junction of three magnificent valleys (Val d'Azun, Cauterets and Gavarnie), and just a few minutes away from Lourdes, Argelès-Gazost is an attractive little spa town, appreciated for its healthy climate.
From here, you can explore the area easily. If sport is your thing, take your pick from mountain hiking, skiing, cycling on the mythical Tourmalet, Aubisque and Hautacam passes, or white-water sports. If you’re more of a culture vulture discover the rich Pyrenean heritage and gastronomy.
Round off your days activities with a gentle soak or a massage in the spa and water centre.
