Capvern - a spa town in the mountains

The little town of Capvern and its thermal spa Capvern les Bains, sit in a scenic position in the Pyrenean Mountains of the Hautes-Pyrénées department of south-western France. Capvern is a town with all amenities, which offers a friendly welcome to visitors in traditional Pyrenean fashion. The town is noted for its spa, which has long held a reputation for considerable health benefits as well as its relaxing and reviving treatments. Nature is abundant and all around, and there is a multitude of sporting and leisure activities on offer in the area.

Pretty and peaceful town

Capvern is an attractive town in a spectacular setting. The little town manages at once to be both lively and peaceful, which may seem to be a contradiction in terms, but experience of life here will prove this to be an apt description. The town offers all the necessary amenities, with shops, cinema, restaurants and cultural events, yet all within an atmosphere of tradition and calm. Capvern also has a swimming pool, tennis courts, crazy golf and beautiful woodland walks to enjoy.

Take part in the village fêtes

Concerts, dances and even discos are regularly held, but the venue is retro-styled and a million miles away from the garish nightclubs of large towns and cities. Village fêtes, the authentic rural French village parties, take place in the town, and are a great way to celebrate the local culture and get to know local people.
