Rabastens de Bigorre - two worlds in one town!

The town of Rabastens de Bigorre in the south-west of France, not only offers access to the dramatic peaks of the Pyrénées, with all the ski resorts and summer mountain activities that are found there, but it also lies close to the altogether gentler landscapes of the Gers department, bestowing a feeling of rural peace and tranquillity and a quintessential "Frenchness"!

Charm and character

There is a real charm and character to Rabastens, as the classical layout of a bastide town never fails to add a certain "je ne sais quoi" to a small town! The market, held every week, offers the chance not only to buy the freshest of local produce straight from the farms, but also to discover a way of life that simply doesn't exist outside France... a way of life where everything stops for the market, where the streets are closed and the whole town wakes to a market day buzz of excitement.

Rabastens de Bigorre offers all amenities

The town may well feel a little old fashioned and rural, but it lacks for nothing in providing the modern necessities of life. The town offers you the services of doctors, hairdressers, restaurants, shops and banks... and those are listed in no particular order!

Close to the slopes

Being close to the Pyrénées means that you have access to great skiing... and if you are used to the queues for the lifts in the Alps you may be pleasantly surprised to find that the Pyrénées are altogether less crowded whilst still providing some great sport for all abilities and age groups. There are plenty of other sporting activities available locally too, with an excellent golf course, an equestrian centre, superb walking and mountain biking all on offer. Rabastens also lies close to the large town of Tarbes and is within easy reach of both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic coasts.

How to get there
