Experience Lourdes with Mary and Bernadette plus the surrounding valleys...


Lourdes

Lourdes is famous for its pilgrimages. Every year the city attracts thousands of pilgrims, sick visitors travelling in groups or individually from all over the world.
To meet and to share is the day-to-day business of our Hosts during your stay, whether you are visiting for religious belief or tourism, as a family or in a group.
Access to the Sanctuaries is reached by foot from the hotel and made easy thanks to the lift to the Saint-Joseph door, just a few minutes away.

Lourdes: doorway to the Pyrenees

Spend a day in the nearby valleys and admire magnificent natural settings such as the Cirque de Gavarnie, a Unesco World Heritage Site, the Pont d'Espagne bridge and Gaube Lake in Cauterets, the Tourmalet Pass and the Pic du Midi that, along with Lourdes, are all classified as ‘Great Natural Sites’. Visit Bagnères de Bigorre, then on to Payolle Lake or the Aspin Pass towards the Aure Valley.

Closer to home, Argelès-Gazost and the Pyrenees National Park are famous for their marmots, wolves and bears for the delight of younger visitors.  Continue in the direction of Aubisque to visit the Azun Valley with its farms and dovecotes, the Estaing Lake, etc.
The stables at Tarbes, Massey Garden, Bétharram and its grottoes are also worth a visit.
