For buying and selling property in Cauterets

A small yet interesting spa town and ski resort

Cauterets does not lay claim to being the largest ski resort or spa town in France, but it is an attractive little place with an interesting history. Neo-classical in its architecture, the town is typical of its area and its origins as a thermal spa centre. Cauterets has a large number of hotels and rental apartments as its main industry is tourism, but it also provides some good shops and other facilities. There are a few good restaurants to choose from, including an excellent pizzeria and a restaurant known as La Brulerie which is found in a pedestrianised area down by the river. Here apparently, you can order an English breakfast or choose to start the day in traditional French style and enjoy croissants and coffee. After breakfast, if you are not heading up the mountain for skiing, you might like to try ice skating, at Cauterets' very popular ice skating centre.

Hot springs and health giving waters

Cauterets is renowned not just for the fabulous skiing and mountain sports it offers, but also for its waters. There are thermal springs all around the area, and the waters are said to have health giving properties. The town's origins are firmly rooted in the popularity of thermalism, and even today Cauterets is popular with those who wish to benefit from the properties of the waters there. They are said to be particularly effective for those suffering from ear, nose and throat complaints. Even if you are perfectly healthy however, the thermal baths and springs are most enjoyable, but the sulphur in the water has a tendency to turn jewellery black…so leave the silver at home!

The famous town of Lourdes is within easy reach, and just a little further away are the Grottes de Betharram.
