Spa, hiking, sledging... so much to do after skiing

 

Sledding and grooming in Peyragudes, tasting local products in Saint-Lary, relaxing session in Loudenvielle and Piau-Engaly... The 4 Pyrénées2vallées resorts offer you many activities for all your gourmet, relaxing and sporting desires.

 

Start with a wellness break...

From the resorts of Val Louron and Peyragudes, you only have to travel a few kilometres by shuttle bus to reach the spa centre of Balnéa, on the shores of Lake Génos-Loudenvielle. Enjoy its spas and hammams indoors and outdoors, its baths with ambiences from all over the world at 37°C... with a panorama of the snow-covered peaks of the Louron valley. Ideal to recharge your batteries after a good day of skiing! In the Aure valley, discover the Sensoria wellness centre in Saint-Lary. A good moment of relaxation with the family awaits you at the canyon and waterfalls of the Rio area. Also discover the Nuxe spa area for a 100% zen massage. In Piau-Engaly, find the Édénéo aqua-play centre and its baths and hammams located at the foot of the slopes.

...then enjoy tasty Pyrenean meals

The resorts and villages of the Pyrénées2vallées have many bars and restaurants with a warm atmosphere, ideal for recovering strength between two days to exercise at high altitude. Stroll through the streets of Saint-Lary, taste tapas or southern wines in bars with an Iberian atmosphere and discover more than a dozen restaurants with a rustic atmosphere, where the specialities of the Bigorre region are served: black pork, garbure, tarbais beans... At the end of the table, go shopping in the many shops in the village!
